Ouch. Not to be rude, but I hope that we 4s aren't bound to a destiny of emotional torment this way. Tell me you've been ok once!!!!
I am SO rude. Scuse me.

I'm a 4, and I love to speak and perform but it doesn't make it easy. I want to be noticed and appreciated but inexplicably, I'm no Shirley Temple (ah well..). I get sweaty palms (yum), my voice cracks, especially when singing etc. It's just a matter of finding confidence and facing your anxiety with a raised eyebrow. My drama exam last week was hellish! But I'm doing it for A-level. ;D

>I have strong insecurities which lead me to pick partners with which intimacy is not possible due to either their or my emotional reservation.
