    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.

    0% Sexual

    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

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

    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.

    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.

    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...

    extrospection > introspection

    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.

    Well this seems like a pretty accurate quiz. It got me questioning my stack, too.

    Some of the Sx and So answers seemed pathetic.
    Projection is ordinary. Person A projects at person B, hoping tovalidate something about person A by the response of person B. However, person B, not wanting to be an obejct of someone elses ego and guarding against existential terror constructs a personality which protects his ego and maintain a certain sense of a robust and real self that is different and separate from person A. Sadly, this robust and real self, cut off by defenses of character from the rest of the world, is quite vulnerable and fragile given that it is imaginary and propped up through external feed back. Person B is dimly aware of this and defends against it all the more, even desperately projecting his anxieties back onto person A, with the hope of shoring up his ego with salubrious validation. All of this happens without A or B acknowledging it, of course. Because to face up to it consciously is shocking, in that this is all anybody is doing or can do and it seems absurd when you realize how pathetic it is.
