    It means whatever the books say it means. There is a continuum of personal intensity, with Sx at the high end of intensity and Sp at the low end.

    As a type 5 [edit - read as 5w4] and one of the most introverted types, the intensity is usually not apparent to others because I keep it internalized.

    While I am certain there is such a thing as an Sx aura visible to other Sx types, that's not part of the definition of being an Sx which is the Instinctual with highest intensity.

    I like the descriptions that go beyond the definition because they are more informative and I can learn more from them. For decades I was stuck with just a sketchy definition that was worthless even for determining my own stacking.

    =10000, the rest is just emotional, circuitous and devious coping strategy.

    And Sx 5's intensity is usually pretty visible, if it's not with mal, that may means that he's not truly Sx.

    Notice that it doesn't say "sex instinct" which is a biological theory, or a psychological theory, but not a personality theory.

    Your original question to me was, "Then what does it mean Sx insctint to you??" (I'm not sure why you insist on moving the "c" around in "instinct.") And that meaning, to me, can change on a daily basis. So you really can't say "end of story" without taking away the changeable subjective basis for meaning.

    Then my forum persona is not (usually) Sx.

    That means that Sp/Sx or Sx/Sp are extremely hot/cold. Not much middle ground.

    That's right. The descriptions say that Sx/Sp is the most conflicted. And Sp/Sx is often described in very similar terms, which is the reason for this thread.

    Upon trying to determine my own stackings I don't exactly consider what I am like on forums or the internet. This is not, to me, reality. I wasn't raised with internet around, and when I first got into typology I did not know what the internet was (although I had heard of it). But there is some indication, in one of the new Sx/Sp descriptions I read recently, that the Sx/Sp could engage in persona building.

    Im only saying that the root of Sx instinct is simply sex, breed, attracting the right mate.

    You should have responded that you were only following my lead. After all, I'm the one who rejected the entire question of its personal meaning. Have you seen the thread where I answered it?
