When I first read about the three enneagram instincts, the first thing that came to my mind was Plato and his tripartite theory of soul.

So, basically, the So Variant would be the Spirited, Sx = Appetitive, and finally, Sp = Logical soul.

Or maybe they correlate with the three Centers, Instinctive, Feeling and Thinking?

Or maybe this is just nonsense?

Interesting idea, @D4C. The motivational aspect is similar in a way. I would switch the model around though.

The Appetitive being focused on basic needs for survival sounds like Sp.

The Spirited being focused on Anger and Passion sounds like Sx.

The problem I see would be trying to correlate the search for truth with So.
