    The only time I disagree with 3w4 statements is when they make them so antisocial and "OMG I MUST WORK" oriented... although they're more emotional?

    Oh yes definitely haha.

    Oversimplification: "Antisocial' and "OMG I MUST WORK" is more 3 SP... which we've established that you are NOT.

    The epic battle between SX and SO. They're both social beings--just one is more intimate. S'ppose that's why they're hard to decipher.

    I'll copy and paste what BlackCat asked:

    So/sx and sx/so are a bit difficult. Let me ask some questions- are you more attached to the social sphere of things? Are you concerned with worldly events, or other people that have the same interests as you? Or would you say you're more interested in individual, one to one interactions? Do you enjoy getting in really deep and intensely with someone? Or do you prefer to have a lot of acquaintances instead?

    Ask yourself why when you answer. Why that is the answer.
    Yeah, you're aware of social hierarchy, but why?

    Yeah, that's true. For me, I'm aware of social hierarchy because it confuses me/ doesn't seem to have any relevance. Kind of like a foreign language.

    I am attached the social sphere but I don't want to be overly involved. Yeah, it'd be nice if I was universally accepted--which I guess is all I want. I don't want to be a social reject in any way. Why? It's about image. If others look down upon me, it can spread, and it can even get to the people I care about, and next thing I know they all have a false or unsavory idea of who I am. Worldy events? Ehh not so much :P Unless it affects me personally. Yes to people with the same interests--I was always fond of the idea of having that "perfect" best friend or boyfriend. Somebody who just GETS it! So I'd say yes to those individual questions as well. I'm sort of picky who I'm intimate with, though. I have two sides: there's the gregarious side and I mingle with everyone, but it's usually just "cocktail party" conversation. Then there's my more intimate side I allow only a few people to see, and they're usually the ones I want to spend a whole lot of time with. "Let's do this and this and this together!" I can get very attached to them.
    Does this make sense? I want to have many acquaintances so I'm "secure" in the social world, but my focus is on the intimate relations. I only focus on social standings when I feel like that is in jeopardy and I can't be myself safely because "they're all judging and scrutinizing." When my boyfriend and I went public we had interesting comments, and I was uncomfortable. It's like I want everyone to be proud. And I'd hate for him to feel like he's inadequate or vice versa.
    S'yeah~

    Purely based on comparison, which itself is a fallacious way of typing ;p, your answer was different enough from mine to warrant a few notes. This was mine, though much of it is regurgitation of my own thread:

    I'll answer the best I can within the context of high school (the land of cliques and douchebaggery) and graduation.

    Well, honor students are typically friends with each other because of the context in which they met (side note: I'm not big on student organizations that are all group meetings, not to mention I got kicked out of the National Honor Society because I'm a tightass about the system's logical inconsistencies). But I'm simply more likely to find in the honors class someone whose philosophies/life mission/whatever align with mine. And likewise with subcultures.

    Why does a given person have the same interests? That's a more important question. Similar life experiences and aspirations? Similar social convictions? Similar philosophies? It varies from person to person. Taste says a lot, within or without the context of the peer group.

    I talk to people easily, but there are plenty that I'm just WAY more drawn to than others. :| I'm kind of polarizing and my reputation is really out there... wtf, a freak... and WOW, A FREAK! <3 Deep and intense? I alternate between obsessive and flighty, depending on the person. "I've known him for all of 3 days." "3 DAYS?!?!?!?! I would've thought 3 years!"

    Uhhh... there's a certain teacher to whom I'm freaking attached at the hip and he's seriously my best friend in the class. Also more of a father/guardian to me than anyone ever was, not to mention we complement each other amazingly (1w2 ESxP + 3w4 ISTP, FUCK YES).

    I guess I answered my own question; that puts me at SX, the SOness exacerbated by the 3. Thanks!
    Similarities:
    • Finding within certain groups the "perfect" companion, emphasis on being understood
    • Attached to but not necessarily involved in social sphere
    • "They're all judging and scrutinizing"


    Differences:
    • If others look down upon me, it can spread, and it can even get to the people I care about, and next thing I know they all have a false or unsavory idea of who I am.
      I could never imagine myself saying that. If someone believes the shit they hear about me without asking me about it, they're not in a position for me to give a fuck about their opinion (seems SX is a little more polarized in relations; SO is adaptive and camouflaged).
    • I have no problems going public. If anything, I'm the one who alienates other people because if I'm excited, everyone has to know about it.
    • Boyfriend feeling inadequate? Psh, that's a personal problem on his part. :p

    comparison is not the most elegant way of typing but it is often the most precise
