Fours Favorite Toy
Next time you meet Four be sure to ask him what his favorite toy when he was a child.
It won’t be the usual cuddly teddy, toy train or football.
It will be his construction set, whether it took the form of building bricks or something more sophisticated,
And he’ll smile happily as he remembers the hours of pleasure he had with it.
Fours are builders from the word go, who need to know what they create is based on firm foundations.
They like life to be solid and dependable but they also like to know that they can expand, enlarge and develop,
Should they so desire because the position they occupy is one of security and reliability.
Like their symbol, the bee, Fours are efficient, superbly well-organized
And certainly not afraid of hard work even if, to times, it is dull and repetitious.
They are practical, down-to-earth people who can be relied upon for their calm and steady approach to any problem, especially in times of crisis.
Systemization is what they excel at and this is the main reason why they can get through an enormous workload with apparent ease.
Fours Work Life
Please do not dismiss our Fours as stodgy, boring people.
Just because they are so industrious and precise in their work.
Inside those solid, dependable exteriors lurk brilliant, inventive minds.
They never appear to push themselves in company.
But somehow people seem to gravitate towards them in order to hear their amusing stories or to share in their jokes.
Fours have the most infectious laughter and the innate ability to make others forget their problems for a while.
They lead active and certainly interesting lives, with a generous helping of bizarre incidents thrown in for good measure.
They’re never at a loss for something unusual to recount fare sees to that for them.
Fours have another side to their very distinct characters.
Which, at first, may seem very much out of keeping with their practical approach to life and all its attendant problems.
They simply cannot resist supporting a lost cause.
And more often than not they seem to take a perverse delight in viewing matters from a totally different angle to everyone else.
Although they could never really be described as out-and-out rebels or trouble-makers,
Their desire to reverse everything and view it in a different light does tend to be annoying.
In business life, their unusual viewpoints could make them a few potential enemies.
All the love Numbers from one to nine have their negative, as well as their positive traits
And negative Four, do have a tendency to become gloomy when life isn’t being too kind to them.
However, their bouts of melancholy rarely last for long and are seldom bad enough to merit the description ‘depression’.
Fours are Sensitive
Surprisingly too, Fours are very sensitive individuals deep down, despite their practical natures.
Their feelings can be easily hurt especially if someone close to them is over-critical or thoughtless.
They also tend to be suspicious, rather than actually jealous, in their private lives.
They hate to think that something, however innocent, is going on without their prior knowledge and approval.
Success in business or commerce is rarely handed to a Four on a plate.
It is something that they have to achieve slowly and usually only after a great deal of diligent work.
Many start out in very junior positions.
And work their way steadily up through the ranks with managerial status often coming towards the end of their careers as the final accolade for all their years of effort and devotion to duty.
Money, although generally only the careful management of it rather than its actual control,
Often features prominently in their working lives.
Because if there’s one thing a Four can do better than anyone else it balances the books.
Absolute trustworthiness inspires a Four’s employer to leave the accounts in his very capable hands.
Fours Team Working
Fours are gregarious and work well as part of a team provided that it is an organized and well-run unit.
However, if things are in the muddle when they arrive,
A Four will soon take charge and get things running smoothly in a matter of weeks.
Committee work often appeals to them and many Fours can be found acting as unpaid treasurers
Or secretaries in their spare time just for the sheer pleasure of having yet another outlet for their organizational skills.
There are many career choices open to Fours of both sexes
But the most suitable would be one of the following categories:
Or even, perhaps, stage manager of a traveling theater company. Who else could get a show on the road better than a Four?
Should you be lucky enough to have chosen Mr. Four as your partner then you are indeed a woman to be envied.
Life with him will never be dull because he’s always bound to have some little surprise or treat in store.
And he has much to share with the right person.
He is kind, considerate, sensitive and home-loving,
But he’s one man who can offer you security without restrictions.
Should you still want to see old friends or continue with outside interests,
He’ll be the last person to try to stop you because Mr. Four is a generous, big-hearted man.
He would do anything in his power to make his lady happy and He would even forgive you if you spent all his money than a Four.
Fours male likes his private life to be peaceful and trouble-free.
In fact, he’ll go to great lengths to get along with his in-laws just to keep the peace.
Quarrels and arguments are rarely caused by him.
He sounds almost too good to be true, and he is, so long as you are prepared to return the love and consideration he shows to you.
You must let him know where you are and what you’re doing.
He needs to be kept in the pictures at all times or he’ll worry.
If male Fours are the solid, reliable workers our females must surely be the queen bees.
These women are capable of great depth of feeling.
They prefer the men with whom they share their lives to be instantly in tune and sympathy with their moods.
They need to feel loved and secure at all times and for this reason,
Their homes are very important to them.
Homes represent not only security but also something to organize and run to perfection.
Monday is always washing for Mrs. Four comes rain or shine her routine must never be disrupted!
The lady Fours who seek interests outside their home generally opt for some sort of charitable work
And if there’s lost cause or a lame dog around they’ll rush to his support and organize help immediately.
These women are loyal, faithful and supportive but sometimes too self-disciplined for their own good.
What they need is to be a little less predictable and a little more mysterious if they want to keep the sparkle in their relationships.
Reliability for them is a quality which can sometimes be taken for granted.
Fours Favorite Color
The best two colors for Fours are blue and gray including, strangely enough, the rather ‘electric’ tones of both of these.
For secondary color they can choose from fawn, pale green and pale yellow as all three are in tune with their particular vibration.
However, they should try, if at all possible, to avoid bright strong colors of any sorts as these will only have a negative effect on them and their surroundings.
Their gemstone is the sapphire of any shade and in a setting of their choice.
