I am a 3w4. I just wanted to introduce myself, as well as add to the posts here so this community can start moving!

I think this is a great idea, because threes are too often misunderstood - much of the literature out there focuses on the social interaction of threes, as well as their drive for success. What I have read has not always portrayed threes' inner problems with accepting love and believing in empathy that drives them to be as successful as they can be in order to gain self-worth.

Also, there tends to be more written about 3w2s, because they are archetypaly more threeish, it seems. Given the two wing, they are much more likely to fall into competition with other people, seeking to be able to announce that they are the best one. Whereas 3w4s seek to compete against themselves, in a way. It is not enough to be the best one, the four wing adds a desire to acheive success through realization of full, unique potential.

That is all for now. I hope you guys are still reading.

Discussion is welcome!

Yay, another 3w4!
I personally love my enneatype...and I guess this is a place where I can come out and say it. It's good being a three.

Posts don't work? You should try again! Please post! This is not my community, but I would really love to see more things going on in here. Like - you can post things that happen in your everyday life that are funny considering your enneatype! :)
Do try posting again!

Mmm! Exactly! Agreed. Check out my journal to see obsessively repetitive examples of this idea, haha. I'm either a 3w4 or a 4w3, but lately I'm more 3.
