These two types are opposed on many points and are very complementary. The 4 is attracted by the energy, enthusiasm, self-confidence, optimism, curiosity, excitement, and adventurous spirit of the 7. The 7 is attracted by the deep, idealistic, passionate, creative, non-compliant, and romantic spirit of the 4. With the 7, the 4 becomes much less whimsical, because he is already too busy by all the activities and entertaining conversations where the 7 takes him. The 7 animates the life of the 4, makes him come out from his interior shell, makes him feel alive, and the 4 loves it. The 4 helps the 7 to explore his inner world and to be more deeply connected with his feelings and emotions. They are both idealistic and aspire to contribute to something good for the world.
The 4 can sometimes see the 7 as being too offensive, superficial, opportunistic, impatient, impulsive, insensitive, intolerant of negative emotions, and indifferent to the resolution of difficult relational problems. The 7 may have a tendency to flee the emotional connection as soon as it becomes intense, which can greatly sadden the 4, who is looking for it. The 4 can also be exhausted trying to follow the pace of life of the very energetic 7. The 7 can see the 4 as being too emotional, moody, needy of attention, negative, hypersensitive and excessive with his feelings.
