I've been thinking about how the countertypes of your core type, point of integration, point of disintegration, wing, etc. influence this. For example, as a 6, according to Beatrice Chestnut:

sx is my core type's countertype
so is my integration point's countertype
sp is my disintegration point's countertype
so and sx are in conflict with 5, my dominant wing

So aren't you influenced by the energies of different variants depending on your level of health? Wouldn't a 6 tend to display less social traits when moving towards 9, and less self-preservation traits when moving towards 3?

Also, is instinctual stacking even, like...real? Are the variants as discrete as we tend to think they are?
