Overview of Enneagram Four


Type Four is passionate, dramatic, captivating, and unpredictable. We are drawn to Type 4s because they are deeply authentic, emotionally honest, and attuned to beauty. They have the desire to find themselves and their significance, to create an identity.


Type 4s are comfortable with a wide arrange of emotions from joy to melancholy.  They have the incredible ability to sit in dark moments and just be with others without trying to “fix” it.


They live with a sense that something is missing, and if they don’t find it, then they will always be incomplete. They have a strong desire to understand their place on the planet so they are in constant search for meaning and to find what is missing. This orientation creates in them a sense of longing that can cause them to miss the ordinary goodness that is right in front of them in the present moment.
