Your instinctual variant + stacking preference for romantic / platonic relations?
I'm sp/sx. Got at least 2 somewhat close peeps who said they sx/sp. Another one was so/sx. Honestly don't mind with friendships.
Romantically however, I'd put so first people down my list more - the ones I know seem to be overly bothered with social situations / social acceptability. They may want to drag me out to big groups, or expect me to pay attention to what everyone's saying, instead of focusing on a 1 or 2. Also, my interest in gossip is usually a bit lacking in comparison.
By the way, how well do you relate to this article?
Flow of Instinctual Energies & Compatibility
When we invest our energy, most of it is devoted to fulfillment of our primary instinct. The remaining energy radiates or flows onto the secondary instinct and finally - onto the last instinct, which receives the smallest share. There are two possible configurations or directions for this flow. In first configuration, energy is invested in the order of sx→sp→so→sx. This direction gives rise to three stackings: sx/sp, sp/so, so/sx. In the second configuration, energy is invested in the order of sx→so→sp→sx, which gives rise to the other three stackings: sx/so, so/sp and sp/sx.
Stackings involved: sp/so→so/sx→>sx/sp→sp/so
Direction: Compelled toward people. Acting upon and with others as a born insider i.e.- deeply human.
Stackings involved: sp/sx→sx/so→so/sp→sp/sx
Direction: Compelled against people. Seething belligerent outsiders; 'antisocial', provoking, reverse-flow change catalysts. In some profound sense, rejecting the human condition, their own and/or that of others.
The two flows move in the opposite directions. This antithesis can be seen if the instinctual stackings are compared in pairs:
so/sx - including, associating, affiliating, networking, incorporating, interconnecting, introducing, unifying, linking, bonding, annexing, cooperating, receiving
sx/so - excluding, eliminating, dividing, separating, contradicting, subverting, confronting, rebuffing, challenging, interrupting, reforming, rupturing
sx/sp - intensifying, escalating, rising, surging, enlivening, invigorating, accelerating, stimulating, energizing, vitalizing, reviving, animating, inspiriting
sp/sx - dulling, calming, quieting, grounding, descending, lowering, dampening, numbing, desensitizing, exhausting, deadening, extinguishing, making still
sp/so - conserving, protecting, maintaining, preserving, supplying, repairing, sustaining, stewarding
so/sp - utilizing, employing, implementing, expending, exercising, spending, capitalizing, expropriating
It is speculated that people with stackings that are part of same flow progression generally have more understanding and smoother interaction, since they are channeling their energies in the same manner. Interactions of stackings that are part of the same flow have the potential to cover for one's blindspot instinct as well as reinforce one's own instinctual energy flow. For example: if one person's stacking is sx/sp, this person is directing energy in the following manner sx->sp->so, in which case another person with sp/so stacking will be reinforcing to their weaker secondary sp->so link and covering for their SO-last blind spot. On the other hand interactions with people who are channeling their energies in the opposite direction can feel dull, draining and disorienting.
"On the other hand interactions with people who are channeling their energies in the opposite direction can feel dull, draining and disorienting." - Nope. Never had a problem with sp/so or sx/sp. Might just be me though.
