    Default Perception and Enneagram Stacking

    The recent thread on damaged instincts made me wonder if the people who are labelled "co-dependent" or "emo" or "needy" or "overbearing" or even "whores" are just manifesting the dominant sexual instinct in a way that non-sx doms fail to understand.

    Same with some people seeming "conformist" or "nosy" (so dom?)/"overly cautious" or "selfish" or "materialistic" or "distant" (sp dom?)

    Are we all just judging people who don't share our dom instinct, is no one as broken as everyone is trying to make it out to be?

    I know there are broken people, but I'm starting to get sick all of the theories that say everyone is sick or damaged or fucked up in some way. Maybe we're supposed to be the way we are (within reason).

    I've seen a lot of this shit lately, I could go on and on, like there was a thread on another personality forum called "worst reasons to date someone" and frankly they all seemed like a matter of opinion, like a bunch of people with idealistically romantic ideas looking down on people who date for more practical or biological reasons.

    I agree. Thinking you're a way because there's something flawed or wrong about you just keeps you from loving you for who you are and becoming a better person. That said, we all have our areas in which we could improve.

    I'm sx-dom, but I still think needy attention whores are needy attention whores.

    Some could be.... after all, when someone has sx as their most poorly-developed trait, I find them to be odd irl..... they could see me as clingy, demanding, etc. I don't really care. I think the important thing is to be as healthy as we can be within our types.

    I've always known that humans were imperfect, so it's no big shocker to me to find out that we possibly became that way from damages to our psyche. Otherwise, we would be completely balanced from the beginning, and that never happens. Most of us start out very imbalanced and move towards balance as we mature.

    Maybe they would mistakenly type as Sx because of those labels, and are actually some other type.

    Besides, needy codependent selfish etc are not exclusive to any stacking type, even if there are trends which I'm sure there are. At the same time severity does matter, and at some level codependency, neediness, selfishness etc will become extremely destructive whereas at more mild levels, it'll be more or less acceptable depending on the "audience".

    True. Unhealthy people in general can be emotional wrecks, and any type can partake in unhealthy sex and intimate relationships.
