    Default Why do you think each instinct mistype as the other?

    I think it wasn't posted before and identifying someone instinct will be much easier. (Sorry for still posting about the instincts I know some people are bored from it, im just obsessed with it lol)

    So why do you think each instinct may be mistyped as the other ?

    Like the sexual may be mistyped as the social because of the awareness of other people and searching in intimacy (idk if that is true but just an example lol hehe)

    i'm also obsessed with instincts i wish there were more research done on it!! i've probably scoured the internet 10 times over for stuff about it by now

    imo, once you truly understand each instinct, it's very easy to tell which instincts are working in a person.. if you mistype yourself or a person it means you don't really understand every instinct. usually, you won't understand what you're blindspot instinct truly is because it's so alien to yourself, so that could cause some problems. it took me a while to truly understand what SX represents, without having my strong SO color my perception. once I understood though, it's extremely clear to me which instincts other people use.

    Also, Farag, I see you have a lot of questions about enneagram. On personalitycafe they have a bigger forum for enneagram with multiple subforums. as for if the forum is more active than than the enneagram forum here, I don't know. it's all kinda dead everywhere

    It's full of overly sensitive people.

    I am registered there, and I'd agree with that statement, @Remiel.

    Plus, the information there is not as high of a quality as it is at the16types. I know, because I checked out several forums before settling on sticking around here.

    Although, we got this swedish term, buksvåger. It means men who have had their dick in the same woman. TypoC is the origin of the story of how I became buksvåger with Forest Whitaker.

    I was on PerC for a while, but then came here when I started getting into socionics bc everyone seemed to be here.
    comparing the two, i'd say it's more friendly here than there.

    Firstly we all use all three instincts. Often the descriptions of the instincts fluctuate between being very vague and spoken about in a way which makes it just about relatable to everyone i.e (sx being associated with having hobbies and passions) or super specific and by super specific I mean the descriptions of how the instincts manifest themselves in each type.
    Also there doesn’t seem to be as much source material as there is for the type descriptions which means you’d have to extrapolate a lot from a small amount of information. I’ve learnt most of what I know from this website and the discussions I’d read between different people on tumblr, but online discussions only take you so far. There’s also the possibility that maybe your understanding of the source material is not that great. I’m definitely guilty of this and I think other people’s opinions are very helpful in figuring this sort of stuff out because I actually typed myself as an ESI sp/sx but was told by others I seemed like an unhealthy so/sx and that I’m an SEI (I believe IEI makes more sense since I relate to the victim style of romance). I’m trying to learn everything all over again now.
