    Default Instinctual Variants and Music

    thought this would be a good idea, so I decided to Ne vomit some of my thoughts on instinctual variants and music.

    I'll start with Sx/Sp (since my tastes in music seem to be extremely Sx/Sp)
    Sx/Sp music tends to be concentrated, vivacious and with a strong sense of longing for a particular thing/person. there is a sort of fiery gut/instinctual energy to it (like the Sx/So but it's much more concentrated, directed than Sx/So music, which is more like a wildfire)

    Sp/Sx
    Sp/Sx music is more subdued/subtle than Sx/Sp music. it has a dark, mysterious, sensual quality to it. if Sx dom music is fire, Sp/Sx music is ice, and Sp/Sx tends to have an alluring, cat like quality to it. it wants to draw you in, but doesn't want to extend too far out of the self or draw too much attention to it.

    Sx/So
    Sx/So music tends to have a very "sex drugs and rock n' roll" vibe to it. it's similar to So/Sx, but more raw, gritty and with somewhat of a "freak" quality to it. where Sx/Sp music tends to be more dark tender, intimate, the Sx/So music has a lighter, more expansive aspect to it and has a "you can't stop me! let's do it bitches!" quality to it. it also tends towards more overtly sexual themes and a "strut your stuff" aspect to it. lots of rock stars tend to be Sx/So

    So/Sx
    So/Sx music is lighter, more conventional and tends to more wordy than So last-esque varieties of music. on the other hand, it can also have more altruistic/service oriented themes or themes dealing with acceptance/social exclusion. often it has a sort of frat boy/sorority girl vibe to it. So/Sx type music is probably the most commonly played music at clubs and parties

    Cool. I'm Sx, but Sp and So are about equal, and I'm thinking I'm more So than Sp. I like music with intensity, mostly electronic and hip hop. I love being provocative.

    glad you liked it

    PS: I'm planning on doing a post for Sp/So and So/Sp as well, but it's proving more difficult

    it's mostly that music in general tends to be sexual/intimate in nature (how many Sp/So and So/Sp musicians can you think of? I can only think of two and I'm skeptical of both being typed correctly). it's sort of like how it would be difficult to find an Sp last investor

    I honestly think that a lot of death metal would fall in the sp/sx range.

    The popular cultre/mainstream stuff e.g. bieber, katy perry etc is mostly so/sx and sx/so. Some of it might even be so/sp --- especially the heavily commercialized music.

    Trance would be imo sx/so.

    I would venture to guess that songs about world peace, unity, brotherhood etc would fall under so/sp and sp/so.

    sx/sp is very much dependent on the individual himself/herself as the objects of an sx/sp's desires are also very unique to the individual. The turn ons are more specific and less generalized as opposed to with the so leading [where commonality is more easily seen]. But sensuality would lie at its core. However, what that sensuality would again depend on the individual.

    That said, my view regarding uniqueness of what turns an sx/sp on may be specific for 4's - and perhaps slightly biased towards my own tastes - which I deem highly unique.

    nooo, Death Metal is more Sx/So. it is like the opposite of Sp.

    yes

    Trance would be imo sx/so.
    more Sx/Sp. Sx/So is higher energy; trance is more calming, ethereal and has a siren-esque sort of "come away with me" vibe that is much more Sx/Sp (and probably some sore of 279 tritype)

    I would venture to guess that songs about world peace, unity, brotherhood etc would fall under so/sp and sp/so.
    I'd say So dom in general

    sx/sp is very much dependent on the individual himself/herself as the objects of an sx/sp's desires are also very unique to the individual.
