Four: The Individualist

Core Fear: That they have no identity or personal significance 

Core Desire: To find themselves and their significance 

Core Weakness: Envy-something foundational inside are missing-misunderstood

Core Longing: “You are seen and loved for exactly who you are, unique”

 

Biblical Character: King David

 

Type Description:

Fours are self-aware, sensitive, and reserved. They are emotionally honest, creative, and personal, but can also be moody and self-conscious. Withholding themselves from others due to feeling vulnerable and defective, they can also feel disdainful and exempt from ordinary ways of living. They typically have problems with melancholy, self-indulgence, and self-pity. At their Best: inspired and highly creative, they are able to renew themselves and transform their experiences.

 

Movement of Arrows:

When moving in their Direction of Disintegration (stress), aloof Fours suddenly become over-involved and clinging at Two. However, when moving in their Direction of Integration (growth), envious, emotionally turbulent Fours become more objective and principled, like healthy Ones.
