    Default Type 2 sx/so

    Hello all,

    Well, I finally took the instinct variant test and tested as a sx/so (with a strong so) and what I was looking for was: Can anyone find a description of a type 2 sx/so? I've tried looking myself and haven't found a description yet and I'd like to see how I am, personally, compares to the description.

    Thanks! I appreciate it

    Sexual/Social

    This subtype shares most of the same issues with the sex/self-pres subtype - the flirtatiousness, the jealousy, and the intense focus on others. They differ in that they give their attention to more people. They actually have a softer presentation than the fiercely intense sex/self-pres. This subtype has a lot of charisma. On the high side, they can be a role model for acceptance and caring. Their love can spread to all of humanity. The down side can be similar to that of the sex/self-pres, but the secondary social instinct brings the issue of pride more into focus as well.

    The sexual/social, like the social/sexual, tend to consider their presence to be their gift. They can be wonderful friends just like the soc/sex, the difference being that their relationships are taken more seriously, once they move beyond the early stages. They may not work as hard in those early stages as the soc/sex will, but at some point, when the relationship becomes more intimate, the sexual variant issues get triggered. With the soc/sexual the issues and dysfunction are more apparent before the intimacy even begins.

    I can see a lot of that in me. I have a very strong need for closeness and intimacy with my friends/lovers and I sometimes get a little jealous if they ignore me after a while. Of course, I'll be damned if I ever express any of these feelings as I often quietly chastise myself for feeling this way. I try to remind myself that my friends aren;t bound to me and that I need to stop being so needy.

    ....but, still, whenever I hear about a group of them going out somewhere I always quietly think to myself, "Why didn't you invite me? "

    I'm not so sure about being charismatic. I was told once I was but honestly I don't see it. /shrug

    And about the pride thing...ugh, not my finest quality and I feel a bit ashamed to admit this, but sometimes when I'm in a social situation I'll sometimes think that, since *I* am there, that things won't be so bad or that someone will benefit because of me.

    It's not something I'm proud to admit as I feel so arrogant to say that but I suppose we all have flaws and my pride happens to be one of mine =\
