    Default The Type 5 SX Thread

    So I never understood the instinctual variants too well. I couldn't even pin down what instinct I was for sure until a couple weeks ago. Now that I know, I want to delve a little deeper into it.

    What does it mean to be a 5 SX? Pretty much all I carried away from the description I read was that we're more talkative than other type 5s. Was hoping to see some discussion that better defines us.

    To kick it off, when I'm in a less formal situation, I tend to be kind of a smart-ass sometimes. Sarcasm is big with me, and I tend to make jokes where jokes shouldn't be made. If it's really bad though, I usually do manage to keep it to myself (example, when i'm at a funeral and i think 'how awesome would it be if someone ran up, jumped in the coffin, screamed ALL ABOARD, and then crazy train starts playing out of nowhere'). When I hold it in though, I do have an amazing urge to tell someone afterwards and try to laugh about it with them.

    That sounds like Sx/So, although I had to research it just to make sure.

    this sounds like 5w6. 5w4 subversiveness is different. sx/sp is challenging. you want to challenge others. sx in general likes to test strength and show that they can win games that they define.
