    Default Enneagram 7 Instinctual Subtypes

    Social 7: Friendship and Community


    When most people think 7, it is typically the Social 7 which comes to mind; however, it is in fact the counter type among the 7s. Less narcissistic than other 7s, the Social 7 turns her sensitivity to deprivation outwards, is usually willing to lend a helping hand and is often found in work involving social activism. Her charm, enthusiasm and ability to make people laugh means she is usually popular and has little trouble warming people up to her many ideas and contributions. Given the more spread out nature of the Social instinct, this subtype is the most traditionally "monkey brained" of the 7s, wanting to know what's going on everywhere and interested in a wide range of topics (she is often more intellectual than her Sp and Sx cousins). For the Social 7, friends are what life is all about. She is intensely loyal, even self sacrificing at times in a manner similar to 2 and 6. Common career fields in which the Social 7 feels at home are social activism, sales, entertainment and work involving children.

    Examples: Steve Irwin, George Clooney, Richard Branson, "Esmeralda" (The Hunchback of Notre Dame)



    Self Preservation 7: Hedonism and Acquisition:



    The most ambitious and grounded of the 7s, this subtype is often mistaken for 3 or 8. The Self Preservation 7 wants what he wants and will stop at nothing until he gets his. It is in this subtype that 7's universal fear of deprivation manifests most tangibly. The world is his oyster and is willing to work long, hard hours in order to have the highest quality food, clothes and various other hedonistic pleasures. He often has a political bent, allying himself with kindred spirits with whom he can exchange resources and express his true, self indulgent nature without judgment or restriction. Ironically, this is possibly the most physically sexual subtype on the Enneagram, often viewing sex as a connoisseur views a fine wine or tea. However, despite a typically selfish bent, the Self Preservation 7 is very keen on protecting "his own" and often serves as a responsible provider and pillar of strength for his family and close friends. More pragmatic than other 7s, he is well suited to the fast paced, competitive environment of the business world and may possess an entrepreneurial spirit.

    Examples: Hugh Hefner, Steve Jobs, "Scarlett O'Hara" (Gone With the Wind), "James Bond"




    Sexual 7: Fantasy and Grandiosity


    The darkest subtype of 7, the Sexual 7 possesses a somewhat brooding, melancholy quality which can resemble 4 (though he is, at this core, positive outlook and more self indulgent). He is likely to live out much of his time in indulging his vivid imagination and wild fantasies, mixed in with addictive tendencies and spurts of hedonism (similar to his Sp cousin, but often of a more narcotic nature which can resemble 9). If the Self Preservation 7 exhibits most visibly 7's fear of deprivation, the Sexual 7 most visibly displays 7's frustration; constantly longing for something out of reach, fantastical and out-of-this-world (King Arthur's search for the Holy Grail rings reminiscent of this subtype). Much of this frustration will be sexual in nature, as he is very picky when it comes to love and has probably invested countless hours dreaming up his ideal lover, for whom he searches desperately and fears he will never meet. Despite his darker, more introverted side, the Sexual 7 has a louder, more flamboyant side to his personality. He often possesses a distinct charisma and a flair for the dramatic and theatrical (which, at times, can border on delusional) which, coupled with his eclectic tastes and style, make him hard to miss in a crowd. Careers he is suited to include artistic pursuits, inspirational speaking and any career in which his unique perspective and insights can be put to use.
    Examples: Lady Gaga, Lindsay Stirling, Salvador Dali, "Ariel" (The Little Mermaid)

    Sounds like made up bullshit to me. Whoever wrote this doesn't even know what instincts are.

    I don't think it sounds made up.

    I think that the paragraph on so is good. I have read similar descriptions.

    And I don't think the sp description differs from others too much either.

    I have no comment on the sx description though, cause I don't have a deep understanding of them yet.

    OMG I'm gonna kill you for the One Direction picture.

    Social 7 sounds exactly like me. Spot on. I just don't have as much of a desire to give to society as you portray them. But other than that, yeah.

    Also ignore the guy that says you don't know what you're talking about - counterphobic 6 talk. He ain't positive outlook at all.

    as an sx/sp 7, these sound pretty good to me.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    In what world are sx 7s brooding? It's bullshit and you know it.
