    Question What are your instincts?

    What is your instinctual stacking?
    If you've never taken a test in order to know, you can take one here:
    Variant Test
    If you don't know what I'm talking about, then go to my thread here and check-out some of the pages: http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...enneagram.html

    If you do know what your Instinctual stacking is(even if you don't understand it) please tell me. My main aim is to see if there is any meaningful correlation between MBTI type and the instincts.

    70% for both self preservationist and social and 22% sexual ( Isn't that one funny? )


    how can you be both self preservationist and social?

    Oh, that's easy!
    There are plenty of ways you can secure yourself using the Social system.
    Sociopaths master the skill.

    EDIT: Also... I hate the fact that people call it the sexual instinct, because that is extremely misleading. I call it the Intimate instinct, because that is much more appropriate.

    I dunno though. Some of the questions require you to answer in a mind where you're with someone. So if anything, this could only be accurate of how I am in a relationship.

    Out in public I'm not really sexual at all, but a lot more in self preservation mode.

    I don't want it, I just need it, to breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

    Never take life to seriously.. No one gets out alive in the end anyway.

    I also wondered the name and thought to comment about it.

    I didn't think my "sex drive" was anywhere near 42%, I rather mostly desire emotional closeness and someone who's activity partner
    edit: it's just some people who make me desire sex. When I don't see anyone and I'm thinking what I'll want most, I'll think of emotional connection with anyone whom I can connect with, along with someone to do stuff with

    Instinctual variant theory holds that your instinctual drives can be divided into three forces. The Sexual force drives you to seek closeness, like you would experience in a strong romantic relationship or a close friendship. The Social force drives you to consider the wider community, where you and others stand, what everyone thinks/feels/needs of you and what you think/feel/need of them. The Self Preservation force drives you to maintain individual concerns - security, health, comfort, etc.. Each person will have a different mix of these three variants. Your results suggest the following mix:

    Sexual ||||||||||||||| 50%
    Social |||||||||||| 34%
    Self Preservation ||||||||||||||||||||| 62%

    oooh, yes- I was wondering how the least pure person on the site ended up scoring so low on a sexual instinct on something!
