    Default How to determine my instinctual variant(s)?

    I am not that familiar with the enneagramm....I just recently found out about the instinctual variants but find they intriguing and really applicable to helping understand myself and my interaction with people around me.... I am quite sure I am a 4, and I thought I must be the sx variant first, but.... after having read a bit more, and having re-thought that, I am not sure.... I did several tests and testes as sx, so and sp....waaah. somehow I see how my most basic motivation is to make meaningful connections with people..... however, I identify with the other variants as well.....

    Here's a test, it's reasonably accurate-

    Variant Test

    After you take that, read the descriptions on this site-

    Type Stackings - the enneagram ...info from the underground

    Then on the lefthand side they have type + variant stacking descriptions.

    Thanks a lot! you always have such good advice ! the test came out
    Sexual ||||||||||||||||||||| 66%
    Social ||||||||||||||||||||| 62%
    Self Preservation |||||||||||||||||||||||| 78%

    and having read the instinctual stackings for type 4 I have to admit that I find myself mostly in sp/sx and sx/sp...... sx/sp sounded more appealing to me, and I thought it might better on the whole, but I have to admit that the sp/sx is so spot-on in some points that I consider it to be the best-fit ....
    thanks for your help!

    No problem! I think you're an sp/sx based on my impression of you.

    Oh, that's good to know ..... I feel comfortable with sp/sx, too. and I think I see the difference to sx dominants, as I guess I know some .... I really like interacting with them (thinking of one in particular, the singer of my band), but after I while I feel drained somehow, and though I really always seek connections....I guess the sp is more basic. now I'm rambling; sorry; thanks anyway!

    Just read sx/sp under the Four stacks. I'm scared...

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    why? because it fits you exactly ? the brooding and fiery outbursts?
    aah, I can relate to that as well, but....I'm glad that I have decided on the sp/sx variant (while I am of course envious of your first sx)

    It's not much to be envious about, it's like being your own personal cockblock and the potential to scare every living thing within 200 m, in earshot or with line of site. It's scary because it's the potential I try to avoid getting to; the monster deep down that at times just wants to erupt out and burn everything to ash. Even my own thoughts hurt me...

    Edit: Oh yeah, add that to the feeling that you are alone in that pain and anyone you thing of talking to about it brushes it off.

    Ive read the Type 1 SP/SX stacking.

    And, I have to say that I fear the consequences of the "explosion of built up repression that has to be released" if it happens while Im not in bed. In other words, it leads to amazing sex, but I cant physically hurt, or insult somebody, even if they deserve it. The first one because my complexion wont allow me to last for too long in a fist fight, and the second, because it is just not right for me to do so.

    Ah yes, amazing sex. That is definately something I could use, especially right now. 34 months is just way too damn long... LOL!
