    *sigh*

    Social
    1) Generally, I positively associate with the idea of being a part of something larger than myself. Though I may find it either overwhelming, because of my astute awareness of what lies beyond my own interests, or inspiring.

    5

    2) I am very aware of the impact my decision will have on others and can be quite attuned to their reactions and needs. I read people well.

    3

    3) Being recognized or valued by my peers or community, for my contributions, is important to me.

    4

    4) I tend to have strong opinions on social change and/or social constructs and trends.

    5

    5) I am aware of not only my own relationships, but also power structures and the nature of bonds between other people. I have a deep understanding of interconnectedness between groups and people who comprise them. In other words, I am good at perceiving the many facets of how a group works within its context and outside of it. I easily pick up on how I fit into the social hierarchy, whether or not I approve of it.
    5

    6) I am socially aware, but I can also be reserved and socially distant.

    5

    7) If I gravitate towards group (s)/institution (s)/gathering(s)of my choosing, I can be quite involved with championing the values and goals of this grouping.

    5

    8) I tend to keep track of current events, even when not required to for my career performance.

    5

    9) At my worst I am either strongly conformist or excessively anti-society/counter culture. At my best, my relationships with others are ones of healthy interdependence, and I may be inclined to strong individual leadership or display deep commitment in establishing teamwork and collaboration.

    4

    10) "no man is an island." Everything is part of an interconnected web, like it or not.

    *shudders*.... 4




    Self Preservation
    1) I am acutely aware of my physical safety (though sometimes I will choose to do something dangerous anyway)

    5

    2) when I go to a party, I immediately notice the temperature, the smells and where the food is

    5

    3) I am very health conscious

    4

    4) financial/career, physical and/or romantic security are very important to me

    1

    5) if I have an injury or a health related problem, I typically notice quickly

    4

    6) I tend to save a decent amount of my money

    4

    7) predictability is important to me. the sooner I can know about things in advance, the better.

    5

    8) when I'm under stress, things like health, finances, hygiene or other things that I normally stay on top of start to slip, sometimes severely.

    0

    9) I'm acutely aware of cause and effect, particularly when the potential consequences are dire. if my friends listened to me more, they'd end up making a lot less stupid mistakes

    3

    10) physical comfort is important to me. I can get distracted by things like uncomfortable seats, high humidity or bodily pain when I'm trying to enjoy time with my friends

    4




    Sexual
    1) I have an addictive personality

    4

    2) "if it's not worth doing in excess, it's not worth doing at all"

    2

    3) people generally think I'm "too much". in lots of situations, I feel like it's expected of me to tone myself down considerably (which I will either refuse to do or do so begrudgingly)

    3

    4) my energy is either "on" or "off". when I'm in the presence of someone who I vibe with my mind does an internal "YES! FINALLY!" and I try to start a conversation with that person

    3

    5) I can be obsessive with my love interests. I am either clingy or have to try very hard not to be

    5

    6) I feel like a part of me is missing and am looking for someone to complete me. at times, this creates a raw sort of longing that can lead to emotional volatility

    4

    7) I have strong impulses (particularly with regards to relationships). I frequently wish I didn't have to be so damn careful

    5

    8) if I'm not in a relationship, I feel old. I don't know how it's possible for people to be happy without passionate intimacy, because being without it makes me feel dead

    5

    9) I only feel alive when indulging my passions. sometimes this causes me to neglect other areas of my life

    3

    10) people either love me or hate me, but either way, my personality grabs attention, whether I want it to or not

    1



    SO: 45/50
    SP: 35/50
    SX: 35/50

    SP and SX tie... No surprise there. xD

    in my opinion, there are more things that tie into how powerful instinctual variants are than just your stacking. for instance, I think 5 by it's nature is connected with self preservation, even in the case of Sp last 5s (by contrast, a type like, say, 3w2 would be more naturally connected to the Social Instinct, regardless of variant stacking)

    I also think some of the SX questions should be re-phrased too, as they focus too much on id-drive, question 2 for example. I understand what it says and in such a sense I relate, but for me clearly, SX isn't so much about doing things in excess as much as it is an extreme focus on one thing. For me SX is more a compulsive need to share ideas and knowledge with other people so I think the essence of SX could still be captured but be more reflective of how non-id types view SX, too.
    once again, in my opinion, the Sx instinct is very Id driven (even in you. I notice a fiery, Id sort of energy in you that just isn't there in other 5s)
    that said, you have a point. I will think about it.

    For example, "When I tend to invest into something or decide to do something, I really put all my heart and energy into it."
    eh, the way this is phrased, a lot of passionate Sp/So's and So/Sp's would score 5/5 on it (my Sx last parents certainly would, as well as pretty most Sx last NFs I've encountered)


    By phrasing it this way, you still capture the basic nature of it, that is, the extreme energy and focus investment, but it loses the excess-focus that I think is something 8s or 7s in particular might relate to.
    Sx types of all Enneagram types are excessive, just not necessarily in a hedonistic manner. excess has many forms. many of my most blatant obsessions lack a physical component to them at all.

    It's not necessarily about doing many things; it's about feeling or investing into something very passionately. Using words such as "excess" implies some kind of quantitive quality,
    you have a point here

    e.g. I like to drink excessively which implies that the person likes to have a lot of drinks or go on binges. I think you can for example still enjoy ONE drink but really enjoy that one drink in an SX manner.
    it's true but, typically, the Sx dom is going to want more when they're finished (not necessary that they're going to decide to get wasted, but they typically want to draw out an Sx-ish experience for as long as possible)

    Indeed.

    Honestly I like this test. It gave me some much needed clarity. I was on the fence over whether I was Sx/So or Sx/Sp ,but uh whether the test is accurate or not the results are Pretty Clear Cut.

    Well, it depends on how we understand and define SP, no?

    once again, in my opinion, the Sx instinct is very Id driven (even in you. I notice a fiery, Id sort of energy in you that just isn't there in other 5s)
    that said, you have a point. I will think about it.
    Yes, but remember I also got a strong 8 fix. It might be different for a 5 core that lacks 8 or any other id type in their tritype.

    eh, the way this is phrased, a lot of passionate Sp/So's and So/Sp's would score 5/5 on it (my Sx last parents certainly would, as well as pretty most Sx last NFs I've encountered)
    Well, then there must be a middle-road to separate the two.

    Sx types of all Enneagram types are excessive, just not necessarily in a hedonistic manner. excess has many forms. many of my most blatant obsessions lack a physical component to them at all.
    Then perhaps define what excess is meant in a more precise sense so people don't confuse it with say, hedonism.
    it's true but, typically, the Sx dom is going to want more when they're finished (not necessary that they're going to decide to get wasted, but they typically want to draw out an Sx-ish experience for as long as possible)
    Well yes, just pointing out how I think an ego type might experience sx somewhat differently to an id type.
