    Default Am I SO or SX?

    All I know is that I'm not SP dominant. I'm too wild and crazy for that.

    Why I Might be SeXy:
    * I like people
    * I'm reckless (bungee jumping, swimming with stingrays, surfing, skydiving, backpacking through Asia alone, the way I drive...LOL)
    * I'm disorganized
    * I'm really bad at the networking thing, I meet LOTS of people, but I'm TERRIBLE about keeping in touch with anyone.

    Why I Might be only SO so:
    * I hate obsessive clingy people (a la the last boyfriend I broke up with...)
    * I'm invariably the class/office clown
    * I'm hyper and get bored too easily (hence the 'risky' stuff that grows mom's gray hair)
    * To me, it's much better to have MANY friends that you can circulate and always have stuff to do with, rather than just a few 'deep' people.

    Who am I? Oh, and IGNORE my signature until further notice.

    You're probably sx/so or so/sx, likely the former if you suck at networking. Which one do you identify most strongly with?

    SO aims for a broad networking connection and is satisfied with that. It feels self-esteem in an environment where it can contribute to the community and play a role. That broad social network IS the goal and gives the person a place. The focus on the broad network means there is not necessarily a drive to know someone in great depth; you're still legitimate within the community just because you're part of it.

    SX aims for deep intimate connections with individuals. It wants to know and be intimately known. The SO network can be used to make initial connections, but the goal ultimately is to go DEEP.... down down down to the bottom... with each person, whoever is willing to dive with you, and there can sometimes be a feeling of disappointment with those who are happy with the broad connection and don't want to go deeper. Each individual relationship is an entity in itself.

    Why I Might be SeXy:
    * I like people
    * I'm reckless (bungee jumping, swimming with stingrays, surfing, skydiving, backpacking through Asia alone, the way I drive...LOL)
    * I'm disorganized
    * I'm really bad at the networking thing, I meet LOTS of people, but I'm TERRIBLE about keeping in touch with anyone.
    Why does this have anything whatsoever to do with SX?

    Frankly, you could be SX, SO, or SP. BUt you don't sound very SX to me. You sound like you're casual towards obsessive intimacy; I'd expect you either to enjoy jockeying for position with broad community (more SO or SP related) or maintaining yourself as an individual while enjoying some of the benefits of SO. So have you ever thought of SO/SP?

    See, the "deep DEEP" thing puts me off. Just kind of creepy and invasive.

    Really, my aim in life is just to have fun, explore all kinds of new places, try all kinds of new things, meet all different walks of life, and maybe achieve a bit of fame.

    Only thing SP about me, is that I try to eat very healthfully (so I don't end up with a disabling disease), I take precautions to not get myself killed or infected with anything weird... LOL I'm pretty simple.

    Yeah, I don't think you sound very SX at all OP. Then again, you are quite young and some things manifest more clearly later in life.

    SX isn't just about wanting to fuck either. It's like others have said, it's about the deep connection further than the mirror reflection on the pond. It can be rather obsessive - frustratingly so...

    Ok, ok, let me try the CHEATER'S METHOD.

    Which stacking is most common for ENTPs? I can just go with that.

    Seem So to me. A bunch of things you described for Sx don't even seem like Sx characteristics.

    It seems to be pretty individual so that approach won't fly. Like others have suggested your understanding of the different instincts is the issue, so read up.

    Good place to look: here, they show the stackings by enneagram.

    You strike me as some kind of So-Sp mix.
