> > > 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?

> > No, I cann't agree with Wagner. It is a good explanation for some types of 4s, but not others. Helen Palmer sees 3 types of E 4s. 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?
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
