    1) Social Instinct


    a) soc/sx


    • Motivation: To create lasting connections with those they are interested in.

    This type has very strong one to one social skills, but is usually uncomfortable in group settings. They enjoy cultivating multiple relationships, and can be intensely involved when in the presence of someone they are interested in, but have difficulty sustaining these bonds when apart. This may give the impression of being flighty and rootless, willing to adapt and mirror others in order to connect, but lacking a defined approach that would give their relationships a more solid standing. They may have political interests, but are generally more pragmatic and less partisan than the other social variant. They are often attuned to pop culture and the latest trends.


    • Energy: outward energy expressed intensely, broadly
    • Mindset: "If I can get close to people with merging/intensity, I can make sure of and keep improving my position and inclusion in the group/world."
    • Blind spot: Likely to neglect their desire to seek intense connections and experiences for the sake of their primary concern of building their sense of personal value, accomplishment, and security of place with others, in average-healthy levels. May not have an awareness of the body's need for food or sleep, or of the need to accumulate wealth for reasons of security, or of the need to manage time or resources to establish an orderly lifestyle.


    Examples of soc/sx: Michael Jackson, Bill Clinton, Howard Stern, Margaret Cho, Jack McFarland from "Will & Grace"
    Yep. XD

    I have so much trouble establishing a regular sleep schedule. :/

    Hi all. I was hoping to ask some SOCs to weight in on their primary "drive" when in a group of people.. as a sx, As well known I'm always seeking "connextion" a reassurance that I have a bond with the person Im interacting with. Trying to build a tribe I guess. But I know this doesnt work.. ennergetically I think it comes across as needy.. and it pushes people away. I trying to work out a new approach. When Socs socialize.. what is your primary / even subconsious urge/focus/want? My understanding is no "bond seeking" but more of an ensuring that everyone in the group is equally "all-right". Would you agree? Disagree? Please elaborate! Thank you! If anyone would like to have a conversation on this, please pm me!!

    3) Sexual Instinct

    a) sx/sp


    Motivation: To know the heart, reconcile inner conflict, form a secure union.

    This is perhaps the most internally conflicted of the stackings, and potentially the most inconsistent in behavior. This may occur as a blockage of the sexual instinct which can be redirected as a more generally brooding and troubled personality. They may isolate themselves for long periods of time before reemerging. They live according to a strictly personal outlook and are not particularly concerned with the approval of others outside of their immediate concern. They seem to be searching for something, the missing piece. If they find a soulmate they will unite without fanfare, forming a secret bond, dealing with formalities as an afterthought. Powerful sexual impulses facing inner resistance may manifest symbolically in the psyche, giving way to soulful interpretations of the unconscious. Under periods of stress severe sexual tensions may manifest as erratic, impulsively destructive behavior. Can seem restless, torn between the comforts of a stable home life and the urge to wander. May be prone to self-medicating.


    Energy: intense energy expressed calmly, steadily, assertively
    Mindset: "If I can make (us) have an orderly & pleasing lifestyle, I can keep up and escalate all this merging/intensity."
    Blind spot: Likely to neglect their desire to maintain physical saftey, comfort, and an orderly lifestyle for the sake of their primary concern of seeking intense connections and experiences, in average-healthy levels. May not have an awareness of the need to connect in a broader sense with the world, of a sense of security or in groups or of the need to seek it, or even of the need to foster approval, support, and understanding of themselves within groups they are connected with, often causing misunderstandings with allies, supporters, friends, and family members.
    I relate to it ;-; , i have poor connection to groups than personal
    I really aware to my own body , than groups. I don't give a fuck with social niceties ._.
