> The reason this board is all about depression, mood, & trouble is because it is, as someone said, as "safe place". Here we can let out all the 'shameful' 4 stuff, those weaknesses that we have to keep hidden, the things that make us different, wounded, apart. Here, since no-one knows us, and since we are mostly 4s we can let this stuff out and know that we will not be judged (not too much, at least)
> I also think that when we are happy, we don't come here. We don't need to. That's why this board is so focused on the 'down' stuff.
You know, someone on another Enneagram discussion board actually criticized me for being very negative on the board. I was like, uh, isn't that what a board like this is for? Then I offered a "deal": half of my posts would be postive or feeling-neutral subjects such as purely intellectual analysis of type; the other half would be what I was going through emotionally as a 4, which is full of negativity and for which I need to share with other 4s. Hey, if other types don't like it, then they can just observe and use it as an opportunity to learn how 4s tick.
