    The point is that being a junkie is just one way of having intimacy issues, there are others.

    I relate to this, I have a friend who calls me mellow but fiery. I have tested sx/so, don't really get the enneagram stuff though.

    I hope that makes sense. I don't type so well with migraines.

    Once again, I'm confused on my stacking. I don't see myself as polarizing at all. Most people have either a slight liking or indifference towards me. Often times I just blend into the background and my presence is not or is barely made known. That would suggest SX last.

    But here's the thing. Some descriptions of SX instinct also mention about intensity of interests and they don't have to be relationships with others. This I completely relate to. Once I get interested in something, it can completely take over my mind and with great intensity. It may not always be apparent to others but the obsessive interest is there and its difficult to distract myself from it. I rarely get this way about certain individuals but I can definitely get this way about certain ideas (like typology) or certain hobbies.

    Also when I'm intimate with someone, I do enjoy having a feeling of one-ness between the two of us. Its disappointing when we don't share similar interests or values because then that feeling of one-ness is threatened.

    And on that link of stackings someone posted, I related to the sp/sx one the most. I didn't relate much at all to so/sp, which I previously identified myself as.

    I think that being Sx is not simply being intimacy junky, it's being a life junky and nothing more.

    The sx instinct leads to a pre-occupation with things like intimacy and allure, leading to intense and electrifying 1-on-1 relationships. Similar to how social types tend to identify with (and think in terms of) groups of people, sexual types tend to identify with partnerships and couples - being one half of a whole.

    Sexual types can be like peacocks showing their feathers - they magnify themselves. Respecting boundaries can be a problem. The truly dysfunctional or self-loathing ones can become completely celibate, or completely out-of-control. The sx types tend to be the most "magnified" or "extreme" variants of the 9 types, as if they were occupying their respective trances "more" than the other variants.

    It's interesting; my friend who is SP/SX is always describing herself the same way, though it isn't true. I think the SX instinct causes her to obsess over whether she is "dull" and blends into the background, things that wouldn't occur to me. Same way a SO-first person is more likely to be anxious in a social situation. And I actually think the SP and SX combo would intensify that, because the person is pulled in two directions at once and their dominant instinct wants to be what their secondary instinct considers "dull".

    Do you relate to that at all? Or am I putting words in your mouth? For all I know, you're absolutely right that everyone is indifferent to you– and for all I know it doesn't bother you, as it does my friend.

    I'm also not certain if fading to the background is always a SX-last thing. I never identified with that. I can be a little uptight/stodgy (not liking surprises or spontaneity), and might be called "dull" in that way, but I come on very strong and loud. After all, wouldn't a SP/SO be more likely to interact with more people than a SP/SX? And therefore wouldn't the SP/SX be more likely to appear to blend into the background to most people, except those select few they sought out and connected with?

    I'm not a peacock kind of guy, I think that's a type issue. I dress casually, not for show. But other Sx types sense the allure anyway, like a pheromone.

    Well, I don't mean to say that sx types are flashy, just alluring.

    So wait, if you're a socially anxious person, does that mean you're an So type?
