    Default Extroverted type 4s, as rare as they seem?

    Just wondering if I have many fellow extroverted type 4s out there. It seems to be almost entirely INFP, ISFP, INFJ. For me it took a long time to decide that I was really a 4 because whenever I test, I always get 2w3 and 4w3 with maybe a one point difference either direction. I eventually decided that I was a 4w3 because the description fits me to the letter and always has. I think I'm different than most though, because as an ENFP I have A LOT of focus on others, hence the equally high score on 2w3. So my questions are is anyone else on here an extroverted 4? What about an extroverted 4 that isn't an ENFP, I've found that we seem to be the only extroverts included at all, possibly because we're the most introverted? And last but not least, why do you think this type seems to draw certain MBTI types specifically? Particularly introverts over extroverts.

    4 is one of the common types(not the most common tho) for ENFPs, i dont think its common with other E types tho.

    I know other ENFPs that type as enneagram 4, 4 goes well with Fi that ENFPs use as their second function and aslo goes along with the intuitive part of the persobality well as fours are among the highest rated on intuition.

    Have a look into Temperament States:

    Temp States

    a medium or high temperament 4 lays the pretext for that introverted 4 typing themselves extrovert. They are still introverts you see.

    Also check out this google doc done by a member at Stackemup, Skyboy. He focuses on low temp 7, but includes stuff about temp states:

    I see nothing in here to indicate that type 4s have to be introverts.

    I think 4 (excluding ISFPs) is almost entirely an NF type. So I think it wouldn't be surprising to see an ENFP 4 or an ENFJ 4. Putting aside the many self-typed ENFP 4s running around here, I think @Domino was an ENFJ 4. Come baaack. They're most likely going to be 4w3 though.

    Female 4s are relatively common.

    I could see a few INTJs going the way of 4. Probably not common though.
