    Default The three Instinct Mirrors

    I noticed that the Instinct mirrors share many common similarities that makes it more easy to first type at which mirror someone belongs and after that which specific type.

    Descriptions:

    Sp/So and So/Sp: The good citizens. They both like to obey the law, are polite, not too popular, enjoy a structured life. Not exciting to be around with (Both have Sx last) but they are the most grounded people. These people are very reliable and seem to have an strong internal compass of what is good. Often part of social settings.

    Sp/Sx and Sx/Sp: The easygoing hedonists. Both have trouble expressing when someone bothers them, problems with voicing their opinion, choosing rather to leave conflicts or avoid them. (Both have So last) Like to live a quite but comfortable life, with not to many friends or unknowns. Rather taking the the easy road, and avoiding the hard road.

    Sx/So and So/Sx: The confronters, these are the people who are sometimes a bit too obtrusive. Quickly obsessed. Highly aware of the people around them, they sometimes see it as their personal task to make sure that everybody is having fun. Can sacrifice themselves for a purpose or others. (Both have Sp last) Often having a winner mentality or fighting spirit.


    Any comments are welcome.

    I fit the first description the most, followed closely by the second. I'm not completely sure of my stacking but It's most likely one of the SX last ones.


    Sp/So and So/Sp:
    *The good citizens. -- Very
    *They both like to obey the law -- Depends. I like to obey the law when it makes sense, otherwise no.
    *Are polite-- most of the time, although if someone is rude to me, I'll most likely be rude back
    *Not too popular-- true. I'm not particularly loved or hated by most people. Just kind of there.
    *Enjoy a structured life.-- mostly although I do like some spontaneity just as long as things are ordered in the long-term.
    *Not exciting to be around with (Both have Sx last)-- most people would probably agree
    *But they are the most grounded people.-- I am relatively grounded in spite of having my head in the clouds much of the time.
    *These people are very reliable and seem to have an strong internal compass of what is good.--- Yes, very much
    *Often part of social settings. -- About average, I'd say. Depends on the type of setting and the purpose.


    Sp/Sx and Sx/Sp:
    *The easygoing hedonists.-- not particularly. I'm easygoing on the outside but more intense inwardly. I like some material pleasures but its also not the most important thing in life.
    *Both have trouble expressing when someone bothers them-- somewhat. At first I will likely not say something to preserve harmony, but provoke me enough and I will say something
    *Problems with voicing their opinion-- often yes, if I think it will be subject to ridicule, but sometimes I can express too strongly, it depends.
    *Choosing rather to leave conflicts or avoid them.-- yes this is preferable, although I can confront conflicts if needed
    *Like to live a quite but comfortable life-- Yes!
    *With not to many friends-- Mostly yes
    *Or unknowns-- Yes, I can tolerate some unknowns but not total chaos.
    *Rather taking the the easy road, and avoiding the hard road. -- Mostly true, but if I wan't something badly enough, I am willing to overcome difficult obstacles


    Sx/So and So/Sx:
    *The confronters, these are the people who are sometimes a bit too obtrusive. -- Rarely
    *Quickly obsessed.-- Yes, but with ideas not so much with people
    *Highly aware of the people around them -- Depends. I can be hyperaware or oblivious but once I'm aware of them, I tend to be quite self-conscious of what they might be thinking about me
    *They sometimes see it as their personal task to make sure that everybody is having fun. -- Yes and no. If I'm hosting something (which is rare), I want everyone to have to a good time, otherwise I don't really see it as my responsibility
    *Can sacrifice themselves for a purpose or others. (Both have Sp last)-- Yes but it depends on what you mean by sacrificing myself. I am very unlikely to risk my life for anything but I might put my relationships or job or other things at risk depending on the situation.
    *Often having a winner mentality or fighting spirit. -- I am not particularly competitive. I don't need to win at all costs but I also hate to be doing worse than my peers. I prefer an environment where everyone is equal in status and no one has to fight for their position. I can have a fighting spirit on the things that really matter to me, but most of the time I prefer to take it easy and not have to fight or struggle at all.

    Damn, am I confrontational?
    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If it’s a disease, it’s nobody’s fault. Yay empiricism.

    I think SX/SO is more confrontational overall than SO/SX. SO wants to preserve the harmony to some extent. I also think contra-flow stackings: SO/SP, SP/SX, SX/SO tend to be more confrontational than syn-flow stackings: SP/SO, SO/SX, SX/SP
