    Default Fives Sp/So and So/Sp

    What are some of the main differences between these two variants? How can one tell whether Sp or So is one's dominant instinct? Some examples would be nice too.

    It may also help to ask on personality cafe and personality nation forums because those sites have their own enneagram 5 sub-forums and seem to have more traffic regarding enneagram.

    No no, go ahead and ask here. This is the friendliest forum over all. The difference is uhhh I took a test and read the descriptions so I could determine my dominant instinctual. :p

    So-dom 5s prefer to teach, clarify and explain; Sp-dom 5s prefer to research, refine, and examine. Shaman vs. scholar.

    That's my understanding of it, in any case.

    Okay, but how can you teach, clarify, and explain without first researching, refining, and examining?

    It's not a matter of doing one but not the other. Clearly you do both; it's a matter of which process you prefer though.

    I suppose I prefer teaching, clarifying, and explaining. I'm happiest when I can help people by sharing my knowledge.

    I have never read that until now. Did you actually buy that expensive booklet on the subject of Instinctuals? I saw one for $30 online.

    Social 5 reach the attention of the audience toward their knowlege and want to enlarge themseve toward discovery. Sp use their intelect to build a stronghold who maintain them withdrawn and assure their safety.

    Typycal Sp/So 5: Bill Gates, Allan Greenspan, Alfred Hitchcock, Mark Zuckerberg, Comic Book guy from The Simspons.
