    5w6 vs 5w4?

    Basically, here are the reasons why I could be...

    5w4
    - I like emotions, as long as I can analyze them from afar
    - I see myself as an unloveable person
    - I search for the meaning in the world
    - I'm secretly sensible and romantic
    - I like to understand the misery in the world
    - I feel detached from the world

    5w6
    - I don't trust easily, I'd double-check everything, just to feel secure
    - I'm super anxious, I see danger everywhere
    - I hate authorities, don't even try to boss me around
    - I like to remain objective and impartial
    - I don't open up, I'd stay as distant as possible
    - I fear intimacy because I could get hurt or manipulated

    The only thing that bothers me with Four is how they should perceive themselves as different or unique...and I don't REALLY feel that need. Of course, I want to be authentic, but I don't mind staying "normal" if I feel comfortable with myself. And I'm not melodramatic (well...maybe a bit....), I'd rather be realist in every situation.
    And same thing with Six....they say they aren't aware of their emotions, but I am, I just choose to ignore/repress them for the sake of my brain.

    Any thought? Questions?

    What is your instinctual variant stacking?

    It can kind of skew things a little, so it's good to know...

    I know I'm Sp and the test confirms it. Sexual comes second.

    Okay, so an idea is, try reading these and see if you identify with one over the other...

    I'm clearly more Self-Preservation Four. So I guess....I'm 5w4 sp/sx?

    What about the part where 5w6 are more prone to like science and technology and 5w4 are more into Arts and humanities (I'm into both, but I have an affinity for technology)?

    Yeah, I've read this somewhere. I'm into both as well, but I like to use Art as a hobby but I'd like to work in (social or environmental) science as a profession. But I do think I'm more interested in social science.

    @Rebecca.M
    I'm having a problem here. According to the test, I'm sp/sx, however I relate more to Sx 5 than Sp 5. Perhaps I'm Sx 5 with a Sp 4 wing? Is it even possible?

    Well, it just fits me I guess? I relate to the core fear of Five: I avoid any kind of situation where I'm forced to expose my vulnerability or my incompetence. I spend most of my time being mentally prepared and I analyze everything to make sure I won't fail somewhere. Analyzing and observing people are something I do regularly and I tend to forget everything else (like eating..). Being intruded is something that makes me angry cuz I feel like I'm suffocated or naked so I protect brutally my intimacy, my boundaries and my time (This is quite a problem when it comes to relationships because I'm emotionally reserved or unavailable despite my will to bond).
    Above all, I want to understand absolutely everything and anything in this world and discover the truths. My curiosity has no limit but I always hesitate to act as I feel like I'm not "ready" enough for the outside world.
