sp — When the Self-Preservation instinct is least developed, attending to the basics of life does not come easily. It will not always occur to such individuals that they need to eat or sleep properly. Environmental factors will be relatively insignificant, and they will tend to lack the drive to accumulate wealth or property – or even to care about such matters. Time and resource management will typically be neglected, often with seriously detrimental effects to their own careers, social life, and material well-being.
sx — When the Attraction instinct is least developed, people may well feel that they have powerful energies, passions, and desires at work. They may know that there are things in life that “turn them on” that they want to explore or pursue, but they constantly procrastinate honouring these wishes. Attending to matters of intimacy and stimulation – mental or emotional – does not come naturally. Such individuals tend to avoid people, situations, or even colours or forms of music that are stimulating and may even have instant reactions to such things. (“I can’t stand that loud music.”) They may also tend to fall into routines, feeling uncomfortable if there is too much that is unfamiliar in their lives. They may feel socially involved with people, and may love others deeply, but feel unable to stay powerfully engaged for long even from spouses, friends and family members.
soc — When the social instinct is least developed, attending to social endeavours and commitments does not come natually. Such individuals have difficulty seeing the point of creating and sustaining social connections, sometimes disregarding the importance of the opinions of others. Their sense of involvement with their community, at any scale, may be minimal. They often have little connection with people, feeling that they do not need others and that others do not need them. Thus, there may be frequent misunderstandings with allies and supporters, as well as friends and family members.
