What are the most common romantic pairings for Enneagram type 4s?
Certain type 4 pairings are more common than others, though any type combination can occur and thrive. The marriage data we compiled and analyzed was broken down by gender, with Female 4s most often marrying 8s, 9s, 1s, and 5s, and Male 4s most often marrying 2s, 8s, 1s, and 6s (in that order).
