I liked the test, in that it had more interesting questions, not the typical SimilarMinds type of questions.
I usually test as so last, which is the case here too. I'm not sure what that means. If I follow the tests, it means I'm so-last, pretty simple. When I explore more deeply, in what I think so-dom means in the context of me as a pretty extreme introvert, I think so-dom makes sense in terms of my weaknesses, preoccupations, etc.
otoh, they're all fairly close, so it's not like I'm an 'obvious' anything.
Edit:oops, thought we had to rank each with 1, 2 and 3- so didn't use any zeroes. Might have been slightly diff if I did that.

I thought it was pretty decent. It at least expands common conceptions of the instincts, especially self-preservation. I didn't think the social questions were as good as the others and were worse than in most tests like these. Too much about 'contacts' and image. Some of the questions were just kind of stupid, like the "what celestial body would you be" one or whatever it was. I'm guessing earth was sp, but earth has so many different connotations; not seeing yourself in it could be an indicator of low so or low sx ("earthy"), not necessarily high sp.
Instinctual variants are the thing that stumps me above all other elements of type. I typically test as sp and sx (unless the sx questions emphasize romantic partnership and sexuality, in which case sx falls to last), but I know damn well that it's more of a mess than that. I've found that instincts above all have taken the brunt of my past damage, as well as I'm doing these days.

I've always tested sp/sx on this particular test. (The computer I'm using won't let me download, so I can put my scores here). The more I've learned, the less satisfied I am with it, though. One question said something like...
"If I were a body in space, I'd be..." a) the earth, b) the solar system, c) a shooting star.
Unless there's evidence that soc-firsts are statistically more likely to choose "the solar system", I have to rule this test cute, but not reflective of deeper theory. Too many reasons an individual could choose one answer over another for non-instinct-related reasons.

Reason: TOO, not to
@decrescendo, I wasn't fond of the social markers either. For example, my husband is definitely so/sx and I don't think he would have agreed with a lot of the social questions. It's weird, because I would guess that Susan Rhodes (the creator of the test) is probably a social dom (or at least social second). I did think the self pres and sexual were pretty good, though.
