    Default Such Irony's stacking thread

    I know I've asked this before, but I'm still not totally sure if I'm SP>SO>SX or SO>SP>SX. The people over on Typewatch solidly put me in the SO>SP>SX camp. However, I'm leaning slightly towards SP>SO>>>>>SX.

    Here are my responses to the stacking questionnaire, courtesy of this thread.

    Thoughts?


    Self-preservation (Need to protect and preserve)
    1. Do you tend to save money and are cautious about spending it?
    Yes, very much so. I hate the thought of being poor and not being able to provide for myself.

    2. Are you security oriented? Ready to protect yourself, those close to you and your resources?
    Definitely.

    3. Are you fairly consistent? Like things known and regular? No big chances?
    In general I’m pretty consistent and not much of a risk taker. I don’t take a lot of big chances- only if the odds of a positive outcome are generally in my favor.

    4. Do you dislike taking big risks unless it’s a “sure” thing?
    Somewhat. I don’t there’s anything that’s an absolute “sure” thing. There are things that are highly probable or improbable though. I don’t take many big risks and when I do, it’s well thought out in terms of what I have to potentially gain or lose. I think of the worst that could happen, how likely it is to happen and how I’ll cope with the consequences should it happen. I’m not going to take a big risk unless there’s a reasonably good chance of a positive outcome and even if the outcome ends up negative, I feel confident in my ability to deal with the consequences. If not, then I don’t take the risk.

    5. Are you fairly private? Not revealing too much to strangers?
    Generally yes, until I feel more comfortable around you and trust you.

    6. Do you tend to be introverted?
    Yes. I’m absorbed in my own thoughts and feelings most of the time. They are often more entertaining to me than the company of others.

    7. Do you understand money? Securities? Investments?
    I understand the importance of saving it and investing for the future. I don’t understand all of the investment terminology and all the ins and outs of picking the best stocks.

    8. Do you tend to plan for the future? Ready for emergencies?
    Financially, yes.
    As far as emergency planning, I could be better about some things. When I’m in a building or at the workplace for example, I usually don’t take the time to learn the emergency evacuation routes unless I’m doing so for mandatory company training.
    My car has some emergency supplies like a blanket and emergency flashers but lacks other things like food and a spare tire.
    So I’m all over the map regarding this.

    9. Are you concerned about health? Safety? Comfort? Home? Hearth?
    Definite yes to the first three.
    Home and hearth to a lesser extent. I do like having a sense of ‘home’ so to speak but I’m also not overly attached to it like some people.
    I kind of like to move around when I get sick of living somewhere.
    As long as I have some sort of shelter over my head and it’s comfortable and safe, I’m good.

    10. Are you worried about what may go wrong? Tend to imagine worse case scenarios?
    Somewhat. I’m wondering how much of this is due to 6 wing though.
    It depends on the situation. Some situations I’ll do this; some others interestingly I do the opposite where I don’t anticipate potential problems enough. The majority are somewhere between the two extremes.

    11. Do you like things spelled out? Details? Exact information? Guarantees?
    I like knowing what to expect and what’s expected of me.
    I like having some sense of guarantee, like if you stay with us X number of years, we’ll give you a raise- that sort of thing.
    I have a love/hate relationship with details and exact information. Too much of it can be overwhelming and cause needless confusion and distraction. I also hate being micromanaged. Just give me a general idea of what you want me to do and let me go about it in my own way.
    On the other hand, I don’t like much ambiguity and I want enough details to resolve it so there is no chance for misunderstanding.

    12. In relationships, do you take care of others financially?
    I’ve never had to take care of anyone financially. Luckily I’ve only ever dated financially responsible people.

    Social (Need for Social Validation)

    1. Do you need or really like social validation?
    Sort of. I don’t think I could handle being a complete outcast.
    On the other hand I don’t blindly follow social conventions and I have some unusual viewpoints on some things.

    2. Is social image important to you?
    Yes. I’m not what you call a social climber by any means but I do want be generally regarded by others as a successful, good person.

    3. Do you have desires/fantasies of being rewarded in a social or public arena?
    Depends on what you mean by reward. Basically, I just want to be seen as highly competent and influential in my chosen field.

    4. Do you think about your affect on others, groups, organizations, and the world?
    Yes, I want people to think positive of me and as someone who’s made a positive difference.

    5. Is it very important to you to look good in public, groups, work, and the world? Is name recognition important, either yours or others?
    Yes, looking good matters. Name recognition less so. I don’t seek to be world famous or anything like that but if I made a noteworthy accomplishment at work for example, then I’d like some recognition for it I suppose.

    6. Are you upset if you don’t get enough validation, reward for the hard and creative work you do in a social context or for a social cause?
    I’m not sure how to answer this one. A lot of the work I do, is stuff that just needs to get done or it’s personally important to me but not others and I don’t expect a reward for it.
    On the other hand if I’ve worked very hard at something and my performance is criticized, that really stings.
    I’m not currently doing any thing for social causes.

    7. Are you involved in groups, organizations and team oriented activities?
    I belong to a few online forums, a couple of gaming groups and a book club. I enjoy groups where a common interest is shared.
    I don’t really enjoy working on teams though. I much prefer to work alone and then share my findings with others who seem interested. Listen to their input and ideas and resume working alone again.

    8. Is belonging to special groups or being a leader of a group important to you?
    I don’t really care about being the leader, usually I prefer to let someone else lead. I am willing to take on a leadership role if asked though and/or it’s some cause I’m very passionate about.
    I like belonging to groups with a shared interest but it’s not the most important thing to me. It’s not essential.

    9. Are you strongly upset if you feel not included or rejected by a group or family or not invited to a social event?
    Depends how close I am to the people that rejected me and the event and how badly I wanted to attend it. Sometimes I don’t even notice or care. In a few cases, I may even be relieved, like if it’s a social event and I only sort of know one person and everyone else is a total stranger.
    I think family rejection would really hurt, like I if I wasn’t invited to my sister’s wedding or something like that. That would never happen though. My family’s really close-knit.

    10. Do you make your money through your association with groups affecting a large number of people?
    I’m a librarian at an urban library. The work I do, affects the community at large as libraries are at heart community organizations.

    11. Do you get really upset if you make a social faux pas? Do you think about and plan out how you will be or present yourself in public?
    Regarding social faux pas, it depends on the severity of it and the company I’m with. If I’m with family or close friends, I don’t get too upset because I know they’ll still love me and accept me. But with people I don’t know as well, I can get very insecure about my social standing after the faux pas. I can ruminate for long periods of time afterwards about what I should have said or done.
    I do think and plan how I will present myself in public to some extent but I don’t overly worry about it.

    12. Are you the social instigator and connector in your family?
    Hardly ever. My mother is usually the one introducing me to others and coordinating the gatherings.

    Sexual (Need for Relationship Closeness)

    1. Do you define yourself through a romantic or close partnership? Is closeness with another person of paramount importance?
    No, I don’t define myself that way.
    I do need some people contact- everyone does. Luckily I get that through my family and friends. I don’t need extreme closeness but I do need others in my life who understand me.

    2. Do you like intense energy, particularly in relating to people? Are you energized when you have a revealing conversation or engagement with another, particularly a special other?
    Sort of, but stuff that’s too deep and personal I can find rather scary because I worry that the others person isn’t going to be receptive or accept me for who I am.
    I guess I’m more comfortable with either more lighthearted conversations or more intellectually oriented discussions that don’t deal with me personally.

    3. Do you tend to focus more attention on close relationships than money?
    Aside from my family, I don’t have any close relationships so I’m not sure this question really applies to me.
    I’m not overly obsessed with either one. I want some level of understanding from others and to feel financially secure.

    4. Does money relate to how a partner will see you more than security for yourself?
    Not in my case it doesn’t. For me, money is much more about security or personal enjoyment than image.

    5. Are money and resources less for self and more to please an intimate other?
    Mostly, it’s for myself. I don’t have a significant other right now.
    I don’t use money as a means of pleasing someone. That’s silly.

    6. Does your attention go more to how well you relate to a partner or potential partner than to other concerns?
    No. I’m not in a relationship.

    7. Would others describe you as dramatic? Do you like to go deep with things?
    I’m not at all the dramatic type and dramatic people tend to turn me off.
    I do like to go deep with things though such as having a deep and meaningful conversation with someone. Sometimes it can be scary but it can also be rewarding, as I alluded to in question #2

    8. Do you tend to be in the moment and not think as much about the future or your future security?
    No. If anything, I should probably loosen up more and not worry about the future so much.

    9. Do you have an urge to merge? Do you “lose yourself” with an important other at times?
    I’m still not clear what exactly ‘merging’ means. I do like feeling a sense of oneness with the other person and ‘we are in this together.’ I like it when we think and feel so much alike, it’s as if we share a soul. If that’s what you mean by merging, then, yes.
    If someone is really important to me, I will put a lot of effort into making sure the other person is happy, even if it means putting my their needs above my own at times. However I’m careful not to completely lose track of my own needs and I’ll make sure that my needs get met too some of the time.

    10. Do you like risk taking? New experiences? Tend to get bored without enough stimulation particularly in the area of relationships?
    I’m not a big risk taker but am willing to a take a few minor risks where the stakes for losing aren’t so high.
    I do like experiencing new things but probably don’t seek it out as much as I could be, since I’m in my own mind so much of the time.
    I rarely get bored. My mind is entertaining company in itself most of the time.

    11. Are you focused more on connection with another and forget your own priorities?
    I will put others’ needs ahead of my own sometimes but I never forgot my own priorities. See question #9

    12. Do you focus a lot on sexuality, romantic fantasies or mystical spiritual experiences?
    No, it hardly ever crosses my mind.

    SP > SO > SX

    I can't provide any reasoning though, this is just based on intuition.

    Since you seem most confident about SP, I guess that's what you are primarily. You're definitely right about SX being very much behind the other two.

    Sx last and that's all I can say for sure.

    @SuchIrony you're a 5 so you're naturally going to lean toward Sp - that makes it difficult to discern your subtype. Judging by your answers you sound Sp-like but your So answers are no different to what I would have written.

    I have thought of you as a fellow So for a while now, but that's based less on facts and more on my instinctive impression. You do seem to frequent So-style threads a lot too - and the types of arguments you put forth often feel Social-first in nature too.

    I may just be biased though
