    Maybe it's cause I really experience the influence of my instincts. It actually does feel out of my control....

    hmmm....

    Like I literally can't force myself to go against my sp instinct. I think it would break me.
    Hmm. Well I feel compelled to do my sx-first stuff and can have difficulty dis-engaging. Nothing else feels important; I MUST continue researching this despite the fact that it's 3 am and I need to go to work in 4 hours.

    But experimentation and restlessness do not necessarily have to be sexual in nature. For me, it's where my mental energy and outlook go, rather than any physical desire. I'd think conscience would override a potential compulsion to cheat (if it didn't, there's likely another issues). Usually, though, my instincts aren't focused on things that would create a moral dilemma.

    I think I agree with you here. It's not that I think we can use our instincts as an excuse.

    But I'm more or less wondering, if maybe peoples' instincts give them different impulses.

    Which I know those impulses don't have to be followed...

    But for me, I don't get many impulses. Wondering if sx or so doms get more?

    From an sp/sx 4 perspective, you generally don't cheat or leave if unhappy in a romantic relationship. You go masochist. You bear it. You endure. You think you do so quietly & patiently, but no. Your resentment & restlessness increasingly seeps through. You become difficult even as you withdraw & drive the other person away. The last straw may lead to viciously turning on them - shred them verbally, empty out a bank account, become punitive (and maybe that is where some sp may cheat), etc. Then you hate that person for awhile because you bore it, you were willing to endure, and they didn't do crap.

    So yeah, an sp cheating would be sort of a power play - punishing, humiliating, ending it on your terms. In which case, confession or wanting to get caught would be high.

    the "upstanding citizen" motiff attributed to SP-firsts (especially SP/SO) only means they compartmentalize their dark side...

    Er... yes. I've done this exactly.
