Can anyone explain the difference between these?
I've seen them mentioned on other forums but couldn't really understand what they were really about.

Is there any test that determines which one is a 7?

Nvm, I found it.

They're all 7s, it's talking about the instinctual variants (which should, I think, be looked at rather separately from the core type).

So social instinct, is most focused on the world at large, groups and hierarchy, social context, etc., sexual instinct is most focused on intensity in relationship, sexual drive, pulling energy from an object, and self-preservation instinct is most focused on vivacity, safety, longevity and that kind of thing. So sx/so means 'focused on sx first, then social, with a self-preservation blindspot). The instinctual variants can apply to any type.

You could say that there are three 'subtypes' of 7, which might present a similar pattern of dealing with the core fixation (some would argue that your core type is a way of dealing with your dominant instinct). You can probably find subtype descriptions.
