Subtypes of Enneagram Type Four

In a way, I think their emotional intensity is a gift and a burden at times.” -María José [01:22]

“For the preserving Four, we can think of their environment as a work of art.” -Mario [13:46]

“I get this a lot that Fours are delicate in some way. Sure, sometimes people feel like they have to walk on eggshells around them, but I think Fours are very, very resilient in turning something around eventually and in keeping on going despite pain and suffering, whether that’s self-inflicted or actual external inflicted” -Creek [54:59]
