    Default E8 lust, what causes it?

    Does anyone know what causes the lust in the 8?

    I find mine comes and goes, somewhat randomly. I'm trying to figure out what the pattern is. I've always attributed it to "bursts of testosterone" which tend to happen a day after intense workouts after long periods of stagnation. There are times when my sexuality grows to ravenous proportions, and my love for mac'n'cheese becomes insatiably destructive to the sanctity of my colon.

    Don't know what causes it, but there sure is a lot of it.

    @DiscoBiscuit...

    Naranjo says something about lust as an overcompensation for feelings of "inner deadness." But how this inner deadness is started beats me.

    what's the use of a life if you don't want to ravenously consume every molecule of it with your teeth and fingers?

    I want to consume every sinew, every speck, every scrap. Hands and teeth and head first.

    That's the only way to really live, to really be alive.

    ok.

    so back to this thread again. Perhaps someone can answer some things for me.

    I've been operating an SLE-IEI forum on facebook for a month or so now, and other people post pictures of SLE's (socionics ESTp).

    Some quick examples:




    Now, take those, and compare them to myself, and another guy (Taylor Kitsch), both SLE 8 Sx/So.




    Taylor Kitsch and I share a similar eyesight. The 2 former have more of a "bite" to them while taylor and I have a sort of... ethereal gaze?

    Does anyone know what the specific cause of this is? Can you guys see the bite that I'm talking about?
