Question #1247875645Saturday, 18-Jul-2009
Category: Enneagram Personality
Why do enneagram type 4's fear 'that they have no identity or personal significance'?... (Mainly explain the first fear, please, I can understand the second, lol). -- Simon the INFp (Type 4)

A1 I guess type 4s look to others to define them. If their relationships are unsatisfactory, they will not be getting the validation they need. That may make them feel their identity is on shaky ground. Or, it may make them unsure of who they are or where they stand. -- Mystified ENFP
A2 It's because 4's base their identity on how they stand out from the crowd. There's nothing worse than being another ornery brick in the wall (I have the tendency to test as a 4). -- scarletdragon

A3 why are 4's so concerned with 'standing out from the crowd'? I mean, why is that such an important thing? serious question. -- S
A4 A3: Yeah, that's what I'm asking (or at least meant to, lol)... -- Simon the INFp
A5 It is difficult to hear you sometimes and that voice is very distracting from hearing the message. I wish you would just let me know you...that is why I like spending time with you. -- Anonymous
A6 i don't understand what A5 is talking about? anyways by "identity" i think of it like.. they need a way to differentiate themselves from everyone else, something that makes them "them" -- Anonymous
