    Default Difference between SX 3 and SO 4?

    Usually a 3 by default would be an SO and a 4 SX, but what if it were reversed?

    I had read somewhere that when first introduced to variants, a 3 would appear to be a SO because of status, & 4 SX because it is more emotional and intense.

    I thought Sp would be rare...o_o I dont know anyone like that hahaha!
    Either way, how would you distinguish SO and SX if youre stuck...say youre intense and emotional but seek social gatherings for stimulation?

    You have all 3 instincts, you don't have to choose one over the two (or indeed dismiss 1 for the others). This is what the instinctual stackings are all about, where you rank the 3 based on how prominent they are in your behaviour.

    Another question I had was if these stacks and Enneatypes are ingrained at the first stages of life and development?

    The dominant instinct is ingrained during childhood development.

    Okay good, because I had another question attached to that if my initial question's answer was a yes.
    Say you had an experience early on in childhood that may or may not have changed your instinct...? Because as a child I was bullied and ever since then I care about social hierarchies, before that I'm not sure what I could have been since that was relatively a long time ago.
