What is your neglected instinct?
My oh so neglected instinct is Social.
How do you see this play out in your life? What do you neglect, miss out on, or fail to do because of it?
As well as being So last, I'm Sp first, and one of my main focuses in life is being self-sufficient and capable. So these things that I do know other people have that I don't, like networks of people to rely on, benefits from regular social engagements, the impulse to be socially attractive are things that really go over my head to nearly the magnitude that I don't feel like I'm missing out on much.
How might this cause issues and negatively affect relationships with people in your life?
I'm generally very happy to connect with people solely on my Sx, general magnetism and location. When these aren't available I'm happy to to think fondly of people I like, but not really reach out otherwise. I only really reach out to people who are in what I think of my "inner-circle" composed of really just a few people, it's not a secret club, I just don't have much capacity for juggling social engagements and communication. Friends have in the past felt that I am cold because of this.
If you've tried to be more attentive to your last instinct, do you think it has helped you to grow?
I've made small forays in the past of going to move events and widening my social circles. I mostly found it overwhelming and unrewarding.
