    Here's a variant test on similarminds:

    Variant Test

    It sort of time-averages my preferences, so I don't get the resolution between sp and sx that should be there.

    Perhaps, but I tend to respect the sometimes alien desires of other types.

    Variant tests are hard to find.
    That's the one I generally give to people.

    In the longer enneagram test that I've taken, I always end up sp/so/sx, which really doesn't make sense to me given the descriptions of the three. I certainly wouldn't rank sx last for me, as a lot of what people are saying about sx in this thread resonates with me (I also agree it should be renamed!!).

    So I just took the Variant test, which I'd never done before, and got this -

    Sexual |||||||||||||||||||||||| 74%
    Social |||||||||||| 38%
    Self Preservation ||||||||||||||||||||| 62%

    It could just be my mood today, who knows. But I think it's reasonable to say my sx/sp are a pretty even mix, like you. It could also explain why I might leap into things emotionally with others, because I really WANT a deep connection, but then might get scared and for self-preservation sake could then pull back a little.

    (From reading enneagram descriptions, I relate most to type 4. However, I think there's a good dose of 1 in me too.)

    That's not what I mean. I just don't want that kind of total Intimacy where you don't have any barriers at all, that would freak me out. I would probably want to invest a certain amount, but not pin all my hopes on something or someone. It seems a little presumptuous to say that your way is the right one. Does that make sense?

    Ah... yeah. That whole "two become one" concept makes me do that blue little smiley thing too.

    i just had this thought and i've put almost no analysis into it...but does anyone think SP first types correlate with Fi types? seems as if the two are quite similar.

    also, wouldn't it be cool to add the variants to MBTI? i think that'd be a quite useful variable.

    edit, just to be a part of this:
    Sexual |||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 86%
    Social ||||||||||||||| 50%
    Self Preservation |||||||||||||||||| 58%

    i have an insanely strong intimate drive...

    heh, you remind me a lot of my best guy friend. he's an INFJ with an SP/SO stacking. he seems to have absolutely no interest in a relationship, at all. it's the biggest mystery ever to me!

    in fact, reading some of the things you've said has given me insight into how he ticks...

    and of course, no way is better than any other (however cliche that sounds).

    P.S. are you 1w9 on the enneagram?

    There doesn't seem to be much of any correlation between MB type and instinctual stackings. I think this is because the two systems are different in almost every way. The address two different things, have different structures, and have different numbers of types, of which one is even and the other is odd.

    but i was just thinking that Fi is a function about keeping in touch with your OWN feelings and desires, which seems somewhat similar to (at least loosely correlated to) the SP variant.

    although Fi can desire intimacy, too...hmmm. well i'll stick by my claim that there has to be SOME correlation.

    also, i don't think it matters that there are 3 possibilities with stackings. like, i'm an INFJ IPS, whereas athenian is an INFJ PSI. wouldn't that be a useful addition to MBTI?

    It would certainly be a useful addition to the MBTI. I was just saying that I don't believe there is a type correlation.
