It's not like a test where I can score lightly on some traits and more heavily on others, and then come out slightly on the heavy side.

    This form of typology is really making me think... I believe that even as an older child - say, 10 years old - I was a daredevil, riding my bike down flights of stairs, swinging to the highest point on the swing set where I could jump off and set a length record. A lot of things of that nature. That is an anti-Sp trait in my view. I had more scraped knees and elbows than any of my friends.
    Well, I did that too, and I consider myself to have operated within a much more SP mindset for some time. It's just now that I'm not as neurotic and more balanced that I find I'm pretty SX and get irked with the hardcore self-encapsulated SP mindset.

    They are all ways of relating to people and how energy is directed. SO tends to create a lot of broad but not necessarily deep connections; SX looks for intensity of connection; SP tends to keep the self hidden and safe and only known to a few. All these other traits might stem from that kind of mindset but don't seem to be core to me.

    Edit - from my experience, the fact that nobody has told you doesn't MEAN anything. If you see yourself in some Sx descriptions and none of the others, then maybe you should just consider that.

    Even as introspective as I am, I'm finding this a very difficult type call to make for myself. I wouldn't even attempt to type someone I don't know enough about.
    But do you think there is even enough to go off of to make that sort of judgment? I don't get out much at all. I am loser who stays on the Internet most of the time.

    so...would you say then that one would be sx/sp if they look for intensity first...but can also be very private/hidden/safe??

    Uh oh, here comes trouble.

    To answer your question, not exactly. The three 'instincts' reside at the unconscious level; so to say you're "looking for intensity,” doesn’t sound right to me. I think it's more like you're naturally attracted, attracting, and repelling people as an sx/sp. Instincts.

    just to be clear...i was using her wording. i don't feel like i'm looking for intensity. i'm just very aware of the chemistry or spark between people but can also be very private.

    Gotcha. I figured you all already knew the high level stuff, but just in case, I threw it out there.

    Did you see the description about the sx/sp "one man storm"? See if this helps, http://theenneagram.blogspot.com/200...ings.html#sxsp.

    Your idea of Sp sounds like introversion. All three of your descriptions involve relationships with others. Is that at the core of this system? Are Sp's head-in-sand self-encapsulated? Or are they just, as the descriptions I've read indicate, concerned with watching out for their personal well-being (materially, socially, etc)?

    Self-preservation comes out in many ways. Sometimes it may involve a pre-emptive strike against a foreseen danger. But self-preservation, safety, and security lies at the core of the Sp type.

    "SP tends to keep the self hidden and safe and only known to a few." Safe, of course. Hidden: perhaps that's just a type 5 interpretation of the instinct to find security. Other types may find it safer to bring their issues out into the open.

    this is where i get confused a lot of the time.

    lemme just walk you through my day... if i may?

    i go to the coffee shop this morning. i have a hard time keeping my head forward and tend to look at the ground a lot in order to avoid eye contact. i feel like when i make eye contact, that i feel these connections between me and whoever i'm looking at or is looking at me. i feel like people feel that from me, too. i also have so much swirling around in my head, like, "why did i make this person... uncomfortable and shifty? do they just think i'm pretty? did i give them a weird vibe?" etc. and this happens between me and the few people i pass by. (i've also considered i'm simply neurotic and paranoid.) i get to the barrista. she avoids looking at me too. i know she is. and she always does. it makes me uneasy.

    waiting tables can be difficult because of this, too. so i go to work, and and always hyper aware of automated movements and eye contact and thought processes behind them when i'm waiting on people. sometimes there can be one single person in the dining room, though i may not know them, that may throw me off of my normal duties. it's like i've singled this one person out. i've done it in classrooms. at work waiting tables. going to the coffee shop. going to the bar. doesn't matter. buying groceries. it can be male or female, so it's not merely a sexual attraction kind of thing. it's sort of like i just tune into one person and become curious. though i also often see myself as creepy. maybe i use SP as a shield, first, when perhaps SX is more natural to me? i tune in, but i'm closed off. and i rarely make contact with people, especially when intensity is involved. i think i just see it as too vulnerable. and when i feel vulnerable and exposed, i close everyone off. i hide away in my house and my bedroom.

    where i work, we have lots of regulars. i also live in a small town. i see lots of the same 100, 200 or whatever it is, faces, every single day. and the longer i'm here, the more i've locked on to different people around me that i'm exposed to and have become curious about them or their lives, etc. i pick up minor details here and there and form pictures of these people. there are also some people that i notice strong intensity with, though i'm unsure of what it implies. but for whatever reason, these people scare me. i find my heart jumping a lot when i cross paths with these people. even if i'm not attracted to them, but feel as though they've also picked me out of a crowd.

    I don't see how it's possible to discover oneself that way. A great deal of what you learn about yourself HAS to come from other people, in reality and not on the net.
