    Default Instinctual Variant Test

    In Enneagram theory, there are three drives, or "instincts" that are key to our survival needs. Some say that they are so deep that they penetrate into our unconscious, dictating our very desires. Each person has a "stacking." This test assesses your dominant instinct. Your second highest result will be your second instinct. For instance, you may be a self-preservation dominant with the sexual instinct as your second result. Then, you would be a sp/sx.

    No matter how you view the instincts, it's always fun to take personality tests!
    Sincerely,
    -The test creator (a so/sx)

    Well, this was interesting.

    60%Sexual (sx)

    Your dominant instinctual variant is likely sexual. The sx instinct searches for intimacy, and is focused on intense connections. An sx-dominant fears incompleteness, loss of connection, or lack of desirability. They may be intense, playful, or impulsive. They feel that they need a strong bond or "other half" in order to get along in life. The sx instinct should not be confused with the physical act of sex or sexual desire itself.
    20%Self-preservation (sp)

    Your dominant instinctual variant is likely self-preservation. The sp instinct searches for survival, and is focused on itself and its world. An sp-dominant person fears not surviving, and may be fearful of poverty, annihilation, or mortality. They're usually grounded, serious, and stable. They may feel that they must make it on their own in order to survive.
    20%Social (so)

    Your dominant instinctual variant is likely social. The so instinct searches for community and belonging in the greater world. An so-dominant fears loneliness, alienation, or inferiority. They may be personable, cooperative, or superficial. They feel that they need a sense of belonging in order to get along in life.

    The only thing I don't understand about being Social is that it's either about belonging to a group OR making change outside yourself, ...the latter is far too foreign to me. People I know are far more important than larger communities and pop culture. Ofc I choose to be oblivious to any groups that have bad influences on me, so it's not like I don't see what trends are talked about I just get sick of them

    Gave up after three questions, was too easy to see through to be worth it
    I need some things that I want in my life now. I own so much but I have even more to lose. Big house, supercar, money, honor. Yeah... a superstar
    Art fills the walls in my room, my house is a gallery. Feel free to visit comfortably anytime. Iím just living like I used to
    Like my childhood wish, like the people on TV. Iím living it up but Iím still sad and lonely. A corner of my heart is empty. I need somebody, I ain't got nobody
    Petrus, Latour, Margaux, Conti, Jayer. I obsess over 1988 vintage, but (I need some) friends who are the same age as me. Instead I pour my own glass and drink by myself
    I'm tired. Today, tomorrow, every day is filled with work. But if there wasn't anything tomorrow it'd be strange. Hello? Is there anyone there?
    "Youíre so admirable."
    Softly, softly come on over here. Donít cry, why are you crying? Why are we both crying? Ask the stars, ask them.
    I need somebody, I ain't got nobody

    Hm...instincts have been on my mind lately. Might have to do some thread necromancy. I took one yesterday that said I was so/sp

    Well I'm not too surprised by my results. But that's good. The test was pretty straightforward to my liking.

    True love is given without any thought of material or social gains. It takes courage to embrace another soul not for what they might become, but for who they truly are.

    I suspected I was a sexual variant, but I wasn't completely sure. I was primarily torn between sexual and self-preservation (social is pretty much non-existent for me), but sexual seemed to be a little more accurate. I can be very self-centered and individualistic at times like an sp variant, but my neglect of basic health/hygiene and physical well-being as well as my disinterest in living a safe life seemed very unlike self-preservation.

    Honestly, more I think about it more so/sp seems to fit, no matter how much I don't like it. I am only focused on sp concerns when I have to, but it is not something I am as concerned with. But if I am shown any sign of belonging I get so utterly happy and hyped up and giddy, it is ridiculous. (Also the sense of always feeling I don't truly belong a group and that others are closer than I am to them is something I really get nervous about if I let myself into a group in the first place...

    The meaning of LIFE:
    To continuously use and develop your own predisposed functionality that makes you content.
    However:
    Societal "ecological niche" generates incompatibilities when we think about individual and his/her meaning. What this means is that life itself can not become fulfilled and in the best cases to approach meaning infinitesimally close tends to happens very seldom. As such we can not reach for fulfillment but we need to become mesmerized by the majority with the majority. Source comes from the illusion generated by the happy outliers. If the individual belongs to one of these groups he/she can be considered as mentally healthy most of the time.

    Head type as in being truly head type and probably 7>5. Too divergent, scattered and expressive for typical 5 and that is the preferred way although long term focus usually helps.

    Social (so): 87%
    Sexual (sx): 13%
    Self-preservation (sp): 0%

    Not surprised about the stacking order, though I'd say my SX and SP can be 'stronger' than that (depending on circumstance).

    The test seems to be pretty good at determining the stacking order for most.
