> All my life I have felt different.I am a strong individualist,very un-stereotypical, find it difficult to understand myself,very sensitive,crazy about the creative arts,like things that the majority doesn't, makes friends only with like-minded people, find myself attracted to different, unconventional people with hearts of gold,very intuitive, a visionary,a poet, writer, love to act too,daydream a lot,like to live in a fantasy world, more than the real world,introvert,have strange phobia's that the average popn' does not have,an idealist,nonconforming, don't like being forced into things, etc. Am I noraml, or is this just part of beng a type 4 personality.
*** I go through the same things too. It's part of being a type 4 personality. :) I felt out of place and had a very different outlook on life than the typical joe. I love the arts just don't know which area of the arts I would like to concentrate in. Or maybe I've been afraid in the past to really focus on it because everyone else tells me I need to find a REAL JOB.. yuck. Psychology is also very interesting but don't know whether I can separate myself from it enough so I don't get too emotionally involved. So u see, I'm still trying to understand myself as well. I prefer the unconventional..maybe it's because there seems to be more authenicity there. Everyone else is trying to be everyone else whereas they're not afraid to express a true part of themselves. I admire that because sometimes I have trouble with it. Also, I find the unconventional ones to have one of the kindest souls out there based on my own experience. Yeah, I hate being forced too and I hate being told what to do...I prefer figuring things out on my own even if it means messing up at times. I'm glad you got on here..this is a good place to talk with other 4s. I hope this helped! If you ever want to vent or chat just let me know.. :)
