I can't speak for every 4, but from a young age I've always had a very strong sense of self. Idk about type 3. But ILI-Te 3 seems very strange. LIE 3 sure, but from what I know about you I don't think you're a LIE..
Also, how sure are you of your instinct typing?
Cause I found this--
"Sexual Nines can resemble Type Fours, as they may feel a sense of melancholy and experience and express similar themes and feelings related to relationships. Having their center of gravity in others means they have a special sensitivity to the wishes and moods of the important people in their lives and an acute awareness of the push-pull connection and disconnection dynamics in relationships. However, while Fours are self-referencing, Sexual Nines are primarily other-referencing, and they may take on the feelings of another as opposed to having more immediate awareness of their own emotional ups and downs, as Fours do."
