The 4 is without a doubt masculine, reflecting strength and stability. His chief characteristics are dependability, productivity, punctuality and obedience. He is trustworthy, patient, conventional and a traditionalist. He is a bit boring and not much of a social person, preferring to toil in quiet obscurity. He works steadily and can be very persistent. He finds great satisfaction in his accomplishments and favors results over financial reward or public recognition. He is humble, dresses conservatively and blends in with his surroundings.
He is average in looks, physically healthy and strong, neat and clean ... but unremarkable. He does not like to draw attention to himself, but will fight you tooth and nail if you try to muscle in on his territory. He believes in effort and control, and is certainly goal-oriented, but his goals are simple and down to earth. He is not a visionary, but notices every detail. He is capable, has an excellent memory and doesn't cut corners. He is the perfect employee, but doesn't tend to do well in social environments.
If you look at the shape of the number 4, you will see that the hard angles are a proper symbolic representation of this rather straight-edged workaholic, who is neither creative nor artistic, but is good at working with his hands. Many craftsmen and skilled laborers have the 4 prominently in their charts. He is a good provider, but demands discipline and loyalty, and in some cases takes discipline too far. He can't handle chaos and is prone to panic attacks if it appears he might not have things fully under control.
