  1. SX/SO vs SX/SP - Instinctual Variants

    What's my personality type?
    I'm 95% certain that I'm an sx/so, and have always related to it no matter from what perspective it's described. And even though I don't quite relate to sx/sp (specifically the so-blind part), I'm definitely considering it now. Part of it is because I have a heart 3-fix and apparently that in...
  2. INTPs on YouTube!

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Here are some introduction videos to what my YouTube channel is all about. I encourage all of you to comment on them, please, as well as sharing your constructive criticism, advice, and what I can do to further improve my influential "status" as an MBTI YouTuber, as I'm still fairly new to...
  3. Do any of you have YouTube channels where you upload MBTI-related content? (MBTI)

    Myers Briggs Forum
    If so, can you please post the links of your YouTube channels so that I can follow them? :) Thank you very much, and I am interesting in connecting with you on YouTube in the near future! :-)
  4. Can Your Instincts Ever Change?

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Title says it all, but I was wondering if your instincts can ever change? Whether it be the order, or intensity of each instinct, etc... Asking for a friend. :tongue:
  5. How to Integrate (or Grow) for Each Enneagram Type: Wings and Instincts Covered

    Hi all, Check out this link about how to integrate (or grow) for each enneagram type/wing/instinctual stacking combination:
  6. Enneagram Instinctual Variants vs. Subtype Descriptions

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Do the instinctual variant (stand-alone) descriptions you relate to, match up with your Enneagram Type's (instinctual variant) subtype description? I always score incredibly high (almost a tie) on both the Sexual & Self-Preservation instincts (when reading and interpreting their stand-alone...
  7. Which Instinctual Variant or Subtype conversation(s) sounds most like you?

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    What core type and wing(s) are you? Which of these conversations can you relate to most? What are your stacking? I wonder what variant(s) that enjoys discussions about religion, politics and sex without getting emotional about it? Topics SP (Self-Preservation) types might bring up in...
  8. Instinctual Variant (help. for me. please.)

    What's my Enneagram type?
    There's no category for instinctual variant, but it's hand-in-hand with enneagram, so I thought it best to post here. (My tri-type is 594, for those who want to know.) I have trouble pinning my instinctual variant order—laud ever reliable Ne. :exterminate: SO is definitely last, but I...
  9. My Theory On The Synflow/Contraflow Instinct Distinction

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    For review: Here's a trend that I see: what essentially differentiates the contraflow stackings from the synflow stackings is their relationship to their tertiary instincts. The contraflow stackings have a more negativistic or combative relationship with their last instinct than those of the...
  10. [Enneagram Type 9] What's a 9(w1) SP/SX vs SX/SP look like?

    Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    Just wondering. At this point, I'm fairly sure I'm the former, but because I'm still new to this I keep finding more info and question myself a lot. Like maybe if I'm SX-dominant after all. I'm most certainly SO-last. I've read several descriptions of which both kinds fit me, including Bliss...
  11. I want to know my Enneagram type. Please help me.

    What's my Enneagram type?
    Thank you everyone for taking the time to read my questionnaire! I really appreciate it. Prerequisites My MBTI type is INFJ. I've researched a lot and asked others too. I'm confident that I'm an INFJ. What age range are you in? I'm 16 years old. So beware of some... lack of self-awareness...
  12. I keep getting typed as a 4w5, but 5's and 9's feel right too??

    What's my Enneagram type?
    I've been doing a lot more reading recently about the Enneagram in general, and am starting to confuse myself somewhat. I've taken several tests, and I always turn up a 4w5, strongly. In many ways, this does feel like the right fit for me, and I resonate with a lot of it. Although there's...
  13. Been bouncing all over the place with my MBTI type, but still can't figure it out!

    What's my personality type?
    Hello everyone! I want to preface this by saying that I am new to this forum, although I have done a lot of reading and learning on here over the last year and a half or so. My question is very broad, but I'll try my best to help you help me. What is my type? And if anyone could, could you also...
  14. [Enneagram Type 6] What is Good About Being a Type 6 SX-dom?

    Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    I have heard many members of PerC talk about being intimidated by SX-dom Type 6's - - and can be rather hard on them for their spirit of intensity. I was curious about things that are "good" about being a Type 6 SX-dom. If you are a Type 6 SX-dom, what do you like about it? If you know or have...
  15. SP/SX and SX/SP Relationships

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    I have occasionally read that these two instinctual stackings can pair acceptably well in a relationship, but cannot find much information on the dynamics or examples. I am interested in hearing about any examples of SP/SX with SX/SP relationships you know of, information you might have, or any...
  16. SX-dom's: How Do You Accept People's Responses to Your Energy?

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Hey fellow SX-dom's! I have a question for you! How do you accept or deal with people's responses to your energy? I feel like, more than with SP-dom's or SO-dom's, SX-dom's are likely to get either a positive or negative reaction (whereas SP or SO might get a more neutral response). I don't...
  17. Where Can I Find Other SX Types (irl)?

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    It seems the Personality Cafe forums are teeming with SX-dom's. I absolutely love and adore this, because I frequently feel like a minority of one in the real world. I realized the other day, that most of my friends are SO/SX - - I figured out that this was due to my own laziness (SO-dom's tend...
  18. Instinctual Variants Driving Me B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    So, I have dug up an irritation with instinctual variants. I originally typed myself as a 7w6 SP/SX (I have been playing with the Enneagram for years now;; but only discovered instinctual variants months ago). I did this, because when I take quizzes and surveys specifically about instinctual...

  20. Setting the Record Straight About SO-dom

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    I keep hearing the complaint from SO-dom Personality Cafe members, that others are misinterpreting what the SO-dom instinct is & what it is not. I am creating a forum thread for SO-dom Personality Cafe members to have at it. Teach, vent, complain, and set the record straight! Enjoy! :)
