Lol... I seem to relate closely to both
3w and 5w. On one test I was 4w5, and
on the other I was 4w3.

When I read the descriptive differences
I relate closely to characteristics of both.
For example
"Prize being both creative and effective in the world. Both intuitive and ambitious; may have good imaginations, often talented."
is 4w3, that's definitely me.

And then
"Healthy side of this wing brings a withdrawn, complex creativity. May be somewhat intellectual but have exceptional depth of feeling and insight. Very much their own person; original and idiosyncratic. Have a spiritual and aesthetic openness. Will find multiple levels of meaning to most events. May have a strong need and ability to pour themselves into artistic creations. Loners; can seem enigmatic and hard to read. Externally reserved and internally resonant. When they open up it can be sudden and total.

When entranced or defensive, Fours with a 5 wing can easily feel alienated and depressed. Many have a sense of not belonging, of being from another planet. Can get lost in their own process, drown in their own ocean. Whiny - tend to ruminate and relive past experience. Prone to the emotion of shame. Air of sullen, withdrawn disappointment."
is 4w5 - that's me to the finest detail.
