> > > dr. Jerry Wagners definition of the E4 type looks mostly Mercurial Style (' highs and lows' borderline personality, depression and envy indicating strong neuroticism). Can you agree with this, Rich?

Some of them are almost E3 look alikes, they are extremely competitive, and tear around like 3s.( Some of the 4W3 subtypes. ) They are so active, that they never are depressed! I also beleives the 4W5s would be hard to explain just through the Mercurial Style. The Mercurial would make the E 4 seem much like the E 7!

> What does palmer offer as a way of distinguishing this competitive 4w3 from being a 3w4?

Hello Charlie:
According to Palmer, a 4W3 turns to activity to avoid depresion, sorrow. Its about avoiding bad feelings....
Acccording to Riso, a 3W4 is a task oriented 3, who wants to be seen as successful, productive & talented ( 3s use work to affirm themsleves.... ) Rich
