    I know this is old. But I found it really interesting!

    Thanks for sharing @MBTI Enthusiast !

    It makes me think I might be SX/SP instead of SP/SX. Because I strongly related to what was said about the Sexual instinctual variant moving towards Social.

    Yep, me too. Because the only time I'm really active in the social arena is when I'm actively prospecting for mates. When I have one my Sp tends to rise back up.

    I'm sx/sp and when reading the sx description I agree that I am more social when I desire a partner. But once I find one, I go back to one-on-one and really don't like to go back and forth to social once I'm in a relationship.

    Self-preserving moves to Sexual
    For example, the self preserving subtype considers a mate as an essential need to maintain and insure security. Therefore, when in search of a mate the self-preserving subtype will feel anxiety and suspense until a mate is secured. In order to attract a mate, the self-preserving subtype will shift to their respective sexual instinctual drive to accommodate this fear. Outwardly the self-preserving subtype will behave like the sexual subtype, pay more attention to their desirability and will be sensual or flirtatious. At first, the self-preserving subtype will spend more time one on more with the possible mate. Once the mate is secured, the self-preserving subtype will return to basic routines that ideally would include the mate. An area of pain and disappointment for this subtype is when they have a mate that is unwilling to pay attention to issues of security and disrupt their need for inner calm.

    I'm ENTP 7w8 and this describes me exactly. I'd not understood that this is what I do prior to reading this. Growth just occurred. Thank you very much.

    Sp moving to Sx describes me pretty well, specially concerning my need for inner calm. It is one of my priorities in life.

    Does this take into account syn-flow and contra-flow stacks?

    Social moves to Self-Preserving

    The social subtype will think in terms moreindicative of the self-preserving subtype when selecting a mate. This is veryimportant to insure the desired security that rank and social status canprovide. The social subtype seeks a mate with a shared social vision andsimilar values. This is necessary to fulfill the desire for a mate that willjoin them in their activities. Therefore, a secure social position isessential. Much attention is paid to the potential mate's connections, rank andability to provide financial security. This subtype enjoys bringing otherstogether, feeling that 'the more the merrier'. They are often adept at creatingthe center stage and often use their home for social events, gatherings andcauses. At first the social subtype will spend more time one on one with thepotential mate. Once the mate is in place, the social subtype will return tooutside interests, groups and/or activities, ideally, this is with their mate.An area of pain and disappointment for this subtype is when they have a matethat is unwilling to pay attention to their need for people, activities, causesand unwilling to share their interest in others.


    This is definitely me, word for word.
