    Instincts are often initially taken literally but I tend to think of them as where your neurotic energy is focused/fixated on. Self-preservation isn’t just “things and money” but for 5s it could be an added fixation on personal boundaries, space, self-containment, limiting external influence. If anything, self pres 5s are the opposite of materialistic as they’ll be very focused on reducing worldly demands of their attention. Sexual 5s will have an almost obsessive quality in their attention, whether they’re dealing with an individual they’re intrigued by or a new pet topic; they want to merge and consume, and be consumed by their interest, however it’s a very conflicting desire with the 5 concern for detachment. Social 5s aren’t necessarily social but they’ll be preoccupied with groups holding specialized information and prestige for intellectual thought.

    FWIW you seem Sp. guess is sp/sx for you
