Electron configuration for Tungsten

How come you add in the f block for Tungsten's electron configuration?

If you look closely at Tungsten's location on the periodic table, you'll notice that it follows a f-block of elements (Lanthanum-Lutetium) that is footnoted below the rest of the periodic table. So, tungsten's electron configuration will include the 4f orbital.
