The 4F attitude is characterized by a self-negative and others-positive disposition. This disposition creates an attitude that is unconcerned of how the realm of physics may affect them. 4Fs come to an understanding that outside sources have a better grasp over the aspect. The 4F feels a sense of ease regarding physics, and generally desires quick conclusions when they are forced to produce opinions in this realm. The strategies that each 4F employs may differ in behavior or execution but the core attitude of unbothered acceptance of outside information regarding physics will be consistent and true for all 4Fs. Below are some common beliefs and behaviors that you may see with 4Fs. Please keep in mind that these are generalities and do not represent the vast sub-archetypes held within the overall 4F attitude.

Theoretical Breakdown
