    I think I like these descriptions the best:

    "Self-preservation variant People of the self-preservation variant are generally trying to be comfortable and independent. Their well-being is very important to them, so they pay much attention to their health, house and financial position. They are less interested in interpersonal contact, and are typically less spontaneous and don't show as much emotion as people of the other two subtypes of their enneagram type.

    Sexual variant People of the sexual variant are very much interested in one to one contacts. They are looking for intimacy and this may show in sexuality, though not necessarily. Being in a relationship is very important to them. They are the most passionate of the subtypes, being temperamental and having more energy. They have less of a problem with getting into a fight and care less about rules and responsibility.

    Social Variant People of the social variant prefer to be in groups or teams. They are more interested than the other subtypes in the position that they and others have in a group, and are consequently concerned with status. Wanting to be accepted, they try to fit in and be nice."

    I definitely relate to SX. But from this I would think I was sx/so rather than sx/sp.

    So where did they come up with those three instincts, and are they comprehensive... i.e., do they cover all the ground between themselves?

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I don’t relate much to the description for sp linked in the op, though I usually relate to sp descriptions fairly well. It throws me a little when sp variant is so strongly tied to physical safety/comfort/well-being. I wish paying attention to my physical/material security was inherently more important to me, because I have to struggle to make it a priority. If I were to type myself according to the descriptions linked, I’d probably go with sx/so- and that stacking isn’t even an option according to the linked page (‘transmission’ necessarily has ‘preservation’ as its aux). Plus, I don’t relate to sx/so descriptions from others sites anywhere near as well as I relate to the sp/sx ones.

    This was one of my first thoughts in reading them, mainly because none of them resonated very well with me personally.

    N/m, I see you're talking about the OP.

    Sexual/social

    This subtype is the most dramatic of the instinctual stackings of type Five. They are less concerned than the social/sexual subtype with social rejection, but take rejection from intimates very much to heart. They have a strong desire to express themselves, and can be the most Four-like of all the instinctual subtypes of type Five.

    Not only do they have a strong desire to merge with a significant other, they also want to make their mark in the larger social sphere. The intensity, aggression, counterphobic stance and desire to connect deeply, all combine with the social instinct to produce a highly charged personality. This subtype can become quite accomplished if they are able to form an intimate connection with someone who will help ground them and provide them with a feeling of security. When Fives of this subtype feel a sense of safety due to healthy intimate relationships, they will want to share whatever knowledge, talent or insight they may have.

    When unhealthy, this subtype can be very dark, pessimistic and the most confrontational of all the subtypes of Five. They can also become very arrogant.
