    Default Having a 3 fix + assigning each person a social value

    So I'm seeing that with core 3's and with 3 fixers, they tend to assign social values to themselves and others. These value systems tend to be based on number of things: How much money a person has, how sexually attractive that person is, how attractive that person's significant other is, what they do for a living, how nice a person's house is, what type of car they drive, how many college degrees that person has, etc. It also seems like the higher up the scale that a person ranks in the previously listed categories, the greater social value that they have. For example, movie star "Will Smith" for example would have a social value of 10, because he is rich, attractive, famous, drives luxury cars, has an amazing house, and dates breathtakingly beautiful women. It seems like 3's constantly compare themselves to others and see how high up this social value chart they would be.Really I thought that all humans did this, but what I am seeing is that many people who aren't core 3's, aren't 3 fixers, and who don't have a strong 3 wing, don't really do this as much. Am I wrong about my assumptions here?

    It's certainly not a virtue.

    I might just be putting my foot in my mouth, but maybe what you describe is generally mostly attributed towards extroverted rational than 3s specifically? I'm pretty sure that image types in general do this more often than the other types too for whatever reason.

    So in other words you think that this is EXTROVERSION + image type?

    To answer your question (I'm a 3w4 fixer), I'm usually left more impressed by a man's taste or depth of character (among other intangibles) than I am by his material possessions. The latter is a convenient shroud.

    As opposed to the cliche success narrative, I'm interested in hearing about people who've managed to triumph over themselves...so to speak.

    All I care about is if the person is kind or can help me in some way or provide company to me. If 3's do this, I'm not very 3ish...

    I easily note these things but not from the standpoint of "social value". More about how it's useful in a material sense I see it as the amount of resources and power one has, not in terms of how socially attractive it makes one. I don't have 3 in my tritype and I'm probably extraverted but I am social-last instinct.

    If this isn't a 3 fix at work, then what is it?
