Tbh I don't avoid possessions and comforts to be saintly, I just plain don't like them. I like beauty you can't own - landscapes, sea shores, cityscapes, women.I shall be the better saint.
So this is what makes most sense to me and how I usually think of instincts, more or less.Equating survival with SP never made any sense to me. The instincts only make sense to me as a way to explain what kind of energy you instinctively focus on, something like...
SP = your own energy
SO = group energy
SX = sexual energy (which doesn't have to be sexual ... it's based on sexuality but could focus on work etc.)
I can imagine how an SP-first ISTP might focus on survival and possessions and whatnot, but to me as an INFJ, it's more about being focused on what my Ni is up to, that internal universe of dazzling lights.
Maybe you have a fairly even distribution of them, 40/30/30 SP/SX/SO?Would be great if someone with better Ti than mine could sort out my thoughts for me :frustrating:
Have you seen this movie? I believe the main character is sp/sx.
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 would probably be happy as a hermit in a cave if it was sufficiently warm and I had a decent bed.
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.So do I sound more like Sp or not?
Oh ok. I haven't read about this. I'm clearly sexual variant.
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.Erm, I think it plays out differently for every type.
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.
