I guess that has to do with the realisation of the relative possibilities of dreams, and also personal satisfaction, but you're right, that sounds very much like the ideal state for a 4w3 to get into. I think being honest with yourself without slacking off is hard; to get the balance of success and satisfaction.
I figure that actually I'm a 4, and am not the certain on either of my wings, because my life's ambition/healthy moment seems to be contentment and peace for myself without constant meaningless chiding.

> While the untimate challenge for a 4/5 might be how to remain totally true to oneself without cutting oneself off from the rest of humanity (I'm guessing that isolating oneself is the biggest danger for the 4/5), I've been seeing a crystal-clear vision of the 4/3 challenge -- how to be true to oneself and still be a "winner" without letting others start controlling our ideas of what a "winner" is. It's a battle that goes on constantly in my mind. Any ideas from 4s, either wing?
