SX is more clingy or intense than I care to be and worries too much what the significant other is going to think. SO worries too much about image and what the population at large thinks. SP isn't so concerned with either of these. SP is very independent and self-sufficient. SP cares about their health and their finances (the psychologically 'healthy' ones anyway). They are probably the least likely to live a life with a bunch of 'drama'. I suppose it all boils down to personal preference. I admit I'm probably biased here. There are good things about SX and SO. With SX, I think its not being afraid of the intensity and going for whatever it is holds your attraction. With SO, I think its a sense of wanting to contribute something to the world and a sense of knowing and caring about social appropriateness. Some SO types as a result come across as very kind and considerate.

    and if you have any combination of the two (sx/so or so/sx) you are totally fucked *looks for shotgun* Personally I think there has to be a balance of collectivist tendencies and individualistic tendencies, do I think SP's get a bad rap? heh, given Corporate america i'd have to disagree with you there, I think perhaps 'negative' SP tendencies, that you mentioned above are desired in that kind of environment, but honestly I think it depends on the individual, and lol you're an sp why do you care what people think? I know it's a stereotype but it has a grain of truth to it. I think positive SP tendencies, (looking out for one's own well being, acculating resources for survival, etc) are needed but they aren't the 'only' thing needed, accumulation of resources that not only benefit yourself but the rest of the society is a good way to integrate the energy, not to mention get in touch with the SO instinct, but that's my take on it

    it's not so much that I care what other people think as much as I keep hearing the same ignorant comments IRL and find this extremely irritating. people repeating regurgitated, politically correct information frustrates the hell out of me

    But you sound like someone who wants to live the American Dream. Just because someone is sp also doesn't mean that they don't care about the environment or helping people. I care about those things, but my natural inclination is to consider my well-being first. And for me, that involves lots of alone time.
    you're absolutely right, my point was that being SP does NOT entail these negative qualities. you are also right that not all of these traits are present in all SP types. we have no disagreement

    I wish you would stand up for my lack of ability to ignore slander.

    Sure this isn't a blog entry?
