    According to these descriptions I lean toward sx/so with sp filling in the cracks. Still pretty even on them but sx comes out on top.

This is my way of rubbing up against people... do they dance like me? can they dance with me? do I just have to use one look to make a loud statement so softly only their ears can pick up the vibrations?

    Anyway, I think it's cool to refer to the opposing poles of each instinctual subtype, and in each dominant subtype, you'll probably see the most "contradictory" and oppositional tension.
    Very well put. I am glad to hear that there are others that 'dance' like this as well.

    The OP was an interesting read, but does anyone know what the term "elliptical" is supposed to mean in that context? It was used several times, obviously not to mean the geometric shape.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Interesting article; these descriptions are excellent. By these descriptions, sp/so could be more of a fit for me, I should introspect on this matter.

    I think the author used the term multiple times because he or she found a one word descriptor that was novel and effective in describing the point. When I reread the piece I found that elliptical was used to describe the instinctive activities that accomplish the end goal of self preservation via a supportive role, Ie. indirectly. Elliptical as the author used it could be synonymous with differentially weighted, biased, secondary, indirectly. If it helps, imagine the purpose of a Venn diagram where self preservation is the product of several overlapping actions - elliptically speaking the nesting and sp tendencies would be one part of the diagram but were it overlaps it also helps to accomplish the bigger picture of self-preservation, albeit indirectly. Yes I know Venn diagrams are typically constructed of circles, I am just considering the weight of space within one circle as a whole compared to the weight of that circle that is within the overlapping center of the diagram. Thus forming an elliptically weighted activity.
    I hope that helps. I just thought of it and haven't proof checked yet. Let me know if you want further clarification.

    Interesting! I identify in part with these sp and so descriptions, but I wouldn't necessarily be able to determine the stacking with this information. I've always thought that descriptions of the variants in relation to my specific type are more helpful, in that respect.
