What Does a Happy Enneagram Type 4 Look Like?

“Happy” may conjure up an image of blithe extroversion that feels impossible, undesirable, or both. Others have an ideal of the perfect romance or covet the lives of creative professionals and celebrities. Even 4s who have achieved significant insight and perspective often find themselves chronically unhappy. While some kinds of type 4s seem happier on the surface, I have personally seen attainable happiness come to even difficult combinations of wing, instinct, and tritype.
