    was reading through this thread and it got me thinking...

    I'm a 7w6, but sometimes I turn 8w7 if I want to kick someone's ass, dominate something or conquer an obstacle, but then again, I imagine most people would

    I don't know about disintegrating to your wing. We may overcompensate with the weaker wing sometimes, perhaps in an unconscious attempt for balance. It's just an amateur's theory though. I haven't read much about wing theory. I just kinda accepted it.

    For example, I think a 4w3 would overcompensate and go to typical 5 wing stuff by having a genuine "intellectual streak," ridding themselves of having to prove anything to anyone. While a 4w5 may realize that they are going to fade into obscurity if they don't do anything about it. "What's the point of being unique if no one knows or cares?" This is a really rough and vague example lol. Hopefully it illustrates my point.
