    I'm pretty introverted and I might be Sp as you suggested earlier in this thread, but just the thought of living this way forever is quite disturbing and terrifying to me. For a certain period of time, like maybe half a year as its longest I would love this way of living, but eventually it would become draining and just simply lonely.
    I love and need my alone time and to get away from people to be by myself, and when people don't respect my personal space and my privacy, I get highly irritated and annoyed on the inside. I get really exhausted after too much interaction/time spent with with others too, when there hasn't been an opportunity to get away from time to time. But on the other hand, if this style would become my way of living, being a hermit living alone in his cave, I would be utterly miserable. I still crave and need some amount of interaction/ inclusion with others and the outer world, I really don't want to be completely cut off from that.
    If I had to choose between "being forever together with or surrounded by people" and "living forever alone as hermit cut off from everyone", I would choose the first (allthough it would depend on who these people were, of course), it would be a nasty option though.
    As I said, if I don't see or if I'm not involved with people to some extent at least, it eventually drives me insane.

    They like their little nest's of wondrous treasures



    I love the energy style of SP's, pretty hawt. The earthy groundedness is just really sexy, idk

    Excuse me

    Because I'm always alone and pretty happy about that beyond the fact I sometimes would like to get laid and do something stupid like be in love. (ideally with someone who isn't clingy or high maintenance).


    edit: I just found the most relatable picture.

    So do I sound more like Sp or not?

    I assume I'm ISFP cuz I'm not ISFJ. ISFJ have Fe which is mindhive thinking, group values, etc. Also J implies being on top of things. I procrastinate and people have said I'm self absorbed.
    I could be an intuitive granted but that's just because I'm on holiday.

    You sound introverted but not so sure about an SP-dom type of introversion if the idea of being alone for too long terrifies you. The hermit life sounds ideal to me.


    @VoodooDolls SP = Self-preservation instinctual variant, not SP as in Sensor Perceiver.

    Oh ok. I haven't read about this. I'm clearly sexual variant.

    Erm, I think it plays out differently for every type.

    As a SP 4 I'm not considered as intense and overtly showing my emotions to others. I often suffer in silence sharing my pain with a few trusted people. I do not seek out social situations(or belonging) and edgy experiences as much as maybe a SO or a SX 4 would. Also despite that I'm creative I don't really look to share my artistic side with everyone and I'm more private about it. Last but not least, I love homemaking and 'nesting', making my living space beautiful and cosy(oh, love me some hygge, too), spending lots of time in it. I feel most comfortable at home, relaxing with a book, a movie or YouTube, napping(lol). When I feel more expressive I do solo karaoke and dancing at home. ;3 I'm really like a lone wolf and fine with less human interaction. Pretty withdrawn at times and fantasize/live in my head a lot.

    However, when I do crave human interaction I like having a friend or a few people over for some board games, painting, cooking or a movie night. I don't mind going out to meet friends but it makes me feel much more sensory stimulated and I can't be as focused(or relaxed) on the person/people I'm with as I would have been if they were my guest(s) at home.

    Interesting, I always thought Sp 4's would still be somewhat outwardly oriented as part of the so called "image" - or "heart" - types and therefore be somewhat more oriented to relationships and interactions with others, to some degree at lesst. I'm really starting to doubt if I am Sp first(I'm a 9 though), also taking into account what the others have brought up here. I seriously start thinking if I might actually be Sx last.

    The wing, however, does certainly play a role in here too, as 4w3's regardless of instinct will always be more "extraverted" or externally oriented than the 4w5 obviously. Do you know your wing?
