This is an interesting discussion for me also - up until 5th or 6th grade I was a bit of a class clown, who could make people laugh - it was a talent I had for awhile. I became increasingly withdrawn in later grades.
There seems to be a pattern of 4's who start out precocious, and then withdraw along the way. I'm relating this to an older thread, called "My history of dealing with that 'status' thing" (linked), where the poster laments their lack of success later in life.
