    Because nowadays we have a thing I call the "introvert fad." That means people don't own up their highly adaptive (aka chaemeleon, spineless) nature, which also equates with being a good team player btw (irony: notice how job criterias mention both the ability of working in teams and working alone as equally important) but instead they want to be individuals. Not copycats, not shallow, cursory banterers but individuals, akin to icons, such as superheroes, Batman, Ironman, whatnot. Because have to be "somebody" regardless of the fact that the way to succeed in life is to comform to the mold, blend in, not to stand out too much, i.e. to compromise. Show me that person who

    - admits to compromising their identity, to being a "player,"
    - to be going with the flow instead against the grain like a kamikaze (it can only be really done is w/ sacrificing one's health)
    - to copying the image, wearing it outside (as a mask, a message intended for the social others) instead of incorporating it in everyday behavior
    - and yes, show me the person who'd admit to be passing responsibilities of changing the world into a more honest place for the sake of keeping up their support.

    Do you think it's hard? It's because they're all around you. We're all social animals, we have to do these to some extent, only that Sx/Sps, especially when on the unhealthy side will always stick out... with negative reception, mostly. It's hard to point these people out because they're the norm, we're swimming in their presence, they're so close to us, we read their empty, shallow posts, their 1-2 liners, without any real, personal message aimed at your own inner soul-self, but this mass broadcasting of signals that just basically say "look at me! I exist! I also count!" - and we read them and forget there ever was anything more valuable than that.

    Don't let the different topic titles fool you! All the typology forums are wasted by this social trash, meaningless back and forth + rarely some real Sx/Sps stirring up some trouble, causing some anarchy because they want to be loved even stronger and they are frustrated of nothing happening.

    The real Sx/Sp is the one that everybody hates and is afraid of. Not the one's who wear the insignia, the Batman logo. You know if you wear a T-shirt praising eco-mindfulness, it doesn't mean that you're really for that. There may be some other thousand people who's following the same trend, wearing the same T-shirt who just only want to make some new friends, eat the free food and get laid with the chicks wearing the same T-shirt and then continue dumping shit on streets. Obviously, these things are more important than truly sacrificing yourself for a bigger cause, all until some Sx/Sos come along without and popularize the new values by throwing a big party that is anything but the strict-minded/anal/stickler idealism for the nature but at least kicks of a viral change in the mindset. People can only change if they never feel bad about what they've done. Social subtypes, then, are in the majority, always, but in a sense, their life experience is akin to being tourists on Earth.

    It's funny because Sx/Sp is actually syn-flow, and this subtype aims for harmony than disruption in society. The Sx/So is actually the "rebellious" one, as it's a contra-flow subtype.

    Yea, it's funny because it aims for harmony and stuff concurrently with being rebellious against constraints, idealizing freedom,
    ironically they can also be extremely insistent and aggressive on issues they feel strongly about, which they go on in the soc realms in ways that will cause stronger soc's to cringe, it's so rough and undiplomatic. They can fall in love with their soapboxes.
    May not have an awareness of the need to connect in a broader sense with the world, of a sense of security or in groups or of the need to seek it, or even of the need to foster approval, support, and understanding of themselves within groups they are connected with, often causing misunderstandings with allies, supporters, friends, and family members.
    but not always hits the mark. Aiming at something with real motivation presupposes a certain lack...

    I think it's because the social instinct is so poorly described.

    Most descriptions I read of it are something I completely hate, and certainly can't relate to. I mean, they make it sound like a depressingly conformist person. I actually think there's a correlation between the social instinct (possibly sexual to an extent) and typology; given that typology deals so heavily with the human condition.
    I am exploiting others as guinea pigs to further my understanding of typology.

    I'm a Ti-Ne. My MBTI is listed as ENTJ because from dichotomies alone, that's my best fit.

    Being "syn-flow" isn't same as being a complacent and non-rebellious type. Sx/sp's like to kick it up, to liven things up (sx/sp = enlivening flow), to get a rise out of others, to ignite them, but being So-last they do this in socially disruptive ways, then suffer the repercussions. Sx/so rebellions seem to be connected to current social issues and of greater importance and scope, more socially acceptable. Sx/sp rebellions are like random aimless disruptions of that brooding anti-social kid sitting in the back rows, which is how Sx/sp's become disliked.

    Sx/sp - local rebellion of an individual or a small socially unrecognized subgroup (biker gang revving their engines loudly on a road)
    Sx/so - social rebellion that usually has more political implications, class struggles (spilling into So/sp), rebellion against the 'sicknesses' of society
