    Default Why are there so many 4s here?

    I don't notice very many 2s or 3s. Most of the stuff in this section is about 4s. But I'm more curious about the other heart centers.
    Take my love.
    Take my land.

    It's because of the 4 fixation for self-discovery, they are more attracted to personality indexes like MBTI, Enneagram, and Socionics that tell them about themselves.

    Because there are a lot of NFs & 4s are mostly NF. And NFs often like these theories.

    Because we're self-obsessed that's why

    I guess the bigger question is why there are not more 2's and 3's here.

    ^ Same reason there are more introverts than extroverts. 2s & 3s are more often extroverted, although I think there are more 3s here than people think. 2 & 3s are not really identity seeking...being an image type means focus on self-value, value to others, & how you appear, but not necessarily understanding the true self. 4-5-6 at the bottom of the egram are more prone to such introspecting, and there are lots of those here.

    5 and 4 seems to be the most common Enneagram type here. I would say that 7s seem more common than 6, though.

    I guess 4 and 5 are very introverted Ennegrams, and therefore more prone to introspection, as you stated. I guess that means that to learn what 2s and 3s are like, I actually have to go out and talk to people. Lame.

    A better question is, why are there no 3-wingers?

    @Haven and @Honor are both 2w3. I'm not entirely sure which one is my dominant wing. I think I picked 1 because I've mistyped as a 1 before...
