- 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.
