> From your descriptions, I'm guessing that the 7 was more healthy than the 4w3. I've met a 7 that was irrational, impulsive, addicted to several drugs, and suicidal. Not an optimist at all.

Response:
I should not have made this sound all complimentary and positive to the 7 -- on the good side, I view it as an optimism, but it can also be looked at as a kind of glib insensitivity to the feelings of others. I have watched 7s dismiss other's pain with something like, well, let's not waste our time there! On to better brighter things!

But I've never heard of a suicidal 7! Maybe I should check my books -- maybe at the ultimate final breakdown they can be suicidal -- I've heard of lots of 7s who overdo the drinks and drugs and that can indirectly cause a suicide.
