    Default Instinct writing style

    Sp/soc: Most straightforward in language, with relatively little trills and embellishments. Points made directly and from personal experience. Business-like and clear. Can be cynical. Attuned to the financial underbelly. Lacking in internal experience compared to other stackings. Woeing and lamenting personal experiences that are lacking, missing, or foregone and never to be fixed or recovered.

    Sp/sx: Comes out as somewhat removed, heavy, yet personal and captivating - giving off a suffocating, insular, emotionally extinguishing vibe, as if their internal world is wrapped around by an impermeable membrane. Strong sensory impressions designed to awake emotions and sexuality. Makes one want to linger on one or two lines forever.

    Soc/sp: Tangential. Very in-their-head and intellectual in their analyses. Comes across as level-headed and unspontaneous, but also extending inclusiveness and personal warmth towards others. Lacking in discernment of emotional nuances, may appear unwitting, material, and coarse in their approach of personal relationships. Their written works often require a great deal of mental concentration from the readers.

    Soc/sx: The word "fantastical" comes to mind. Lots of virtuosity and trills, and often removed from the real world. One is whirled away by the dazzling fairies of their colorful imagination. Can be too rich in imagery for their own good. Sustained dramatic power due to their knowledge of interpersonal dynamics.

    Sx/sp: Intense, often a stab-in-the-chest sensation, leaving me in tears without knowing why. Fantastical but much more concentrated in a few inner images. Can be abstract, animating dead objects into their field of contemplation. Embodiment of another human, thing, or idea is common in their writings. Talking of their personal thoughts and experiences, while forgetting to include others.

    Sx/soc: My impression of their writing is "fire-and-ice", as if one is to experience the extremes of heat and coldness at the same time. Often abstract, spilling one inner vision after another like a dream-sequence. Seems particularly in touch with the core meaning of life and death.

    I’m just curious - do you relate to your instinct writing style? Similarities, differences..?

    I will say though that I feel like SP types are much better or at least better at discipline in things they like, than I am, and their writing seem to convey that substance while mine feels more 'formless' or too abstract, verging on ethereal at times I think, probably clearer in person (speech). I think I lose patience with that amount of dedication, or detail, personally, but at the same time I can admire it.

    Hm, not really.
    I find all those descriptions very dark and unrelatable, for myself and for anyone else. Nothing here strikes me as something I've seen.

    I am so/sp and my writing are very in-my-head. But I attribute it to being LII instead of being so/sp.

    would an SX first LII have the same writing style?

    To some degree they will share the typical LII style but my guess is, at least in writing, some SX first logical types might even resemble ethical types (on surface).

    Can't speak for the others but I can probably confirm so/sx. I'm either so/sx or sx/so, and I write (creatively I mean) using a very deliberately fantastical style inspired by Tolkien and Anglish (English but with most or all non-Germanic words removed from the lexicon).

    A sample of my creative writing:

    "I tell you now of that land from whence I have come. Rockfall it iscalled, after the manner of the Rockfall Mountains which sunder itfrom north to south, and part the vast eastern desert from the deepwoods in the west. The trees grow tall and hardy from the slopes ofthe Rockfall Mountains unto the shores of the Eternal Sea, but theyare sparse and small east of the mountains, save for where the GreatLeax River waters the desert along its winding path out of the farmountains to the north and east. My home is stood on the northernbank at that point whereat the Leax in a time long forgotten carveditself a path through the Rockfalls on its road to the Sea. Oft dotravelers rest and refill their stores in that town of Rivershore whoare on their way into or out of the pass, and my kin give themlodging. Where the Leax spills its waters into the Sea was foundedStormwatch the oldest of the three cities and surpassed in size onlyby Harborsted sixty leagues north. Further north still by about fiftyleagues lies Voxford at the edge of the northern wilds. BeyondVoxford the winters grow bitter and long, and giants are said to maketheir homes in those northern mountains. A fortnight’s travelsouthward by foot out of Harborsted will bring a wanderer to theBloodwood. Though of surpassing beauty, that forest is filled withdark enchantment. The trees there grow until they blot out the sun,and their bark is ruddy and thick. To the east, beyond the wide androlling desert between the Rockfalls and the Blue Peaks there lies awatered place between four mountains and seven hills which rise outof the sands; a haven guarded by beautiful and strange walls whosemakers are not known."

    Edit: Copy/pasting made the formatting weird. I'm sorry, but I'm too lazy to fix all the spaces it took out lol

    Just no, I wish. If I write like this, then that also means I am Ne-polr.

    Heh, I don’t think so. I think FreelancePoliceman’s writing gives me that vibe

    looking at this thread again, people may be taking it a little too literally perhaps (?). Abstracting the essence of what this is trying to get across and applying it more creatively, say changing things around a bit based on context such as situation or type, might be useful? I think at the heart of it people may be showing at least some of their respective energies though.

    I also remember someone saying this was originally written about songs but - I think we can apply it beyond that.

    anyways, you remove “elicits strong sensory impressions” whole sentence and I don’t believe the rest is talking about 1D Ne or anything like that. Sp/sx, in writing, gives the vibe of concentrated or “boundaried” intensity to where you kind of get a glimmer of it but it doesn’t sort of...explode if you will lol, like it does in sx first. Extremely private vibe. Not complete inability to be aware of social world, but it almost seems...irrelevant. And all of that can I think show in writing.

    it’s not always going to show ofc esp if it’s just some simple conversation, I think observing more deeper or more meaningful pieces to the author might be helpful somewhat. And I think the energy can also change if the sp/sx is interested (sx) in someone then the energy can start to become slightly more unstable like sx

    ...and so on

    mb I’ll post about sxso later

    I’m glad you seem to like my writing, in a way — though I regret that I’m usually lazy about it. That being said, I always figured I was so/sx. I think someone else has also mentioned they think I seem sp-first, so I’m curious; can you explain what about me or my writing style seems sp-like, beyond what you mentioned? I haven’t read much about instincts, so feel free to overexplain.
    φιλοκαλοῦμέν τε γὰρ μετ᾽ εὐτελείας καὶ φιλοσοφοῦμεν ἄνευ μαλακίας.

    It’s hard to translate this literally and poetically into English, but this is my attempt at a translation: “For we love beauty, that we attain good ends thereby, and we love wisdom, though not in a way that makes us soft, nor that causes us to value weakness.”

    People generally think IJs are sp first, I think you are not, you definitely not into self preservation first.

    This conception definitely would not hold true, especially for IEI and SEI, which can be So first... And Sx with some enne types, like 9.. I misread.. I thought you said IP, still would not though.. ESI can be Sx first.. I can see why people would think this for EII and LSI.. But you still can have deviation, and you can see Sx 5 EII and So5 LII, sometimes sx1 LSI, though rarity.

    I think it mostly is true for EII and LSI, to some extent LII, but that is more he way, and ESI definitely no, is versatile.

    Yes every type can have any instinctual stack order. People generally associate and confuse the characteristics of temperament and type with instincts, it is understandable.

    I mean there is grain of truth in statement; LSI and EII very often are Sp first. Sp1 or 6 (LDI), and Sp4 or 5 (EII) respectively.. Very seldom will you see an EII that is Sx, unless they are 9.. Possibly 5. But yes, it is too much a generality and is vacuous when trying factor in all.

    I have met with LSIs and EIIs with so first, I have met with LSIs sx first. When you met with lots of members of the same type, other typology factors become more apparent. I understand why people see some correlation and there might be but other instinctual orders are not that uncommon as people think so.

    LSI so ofcourse will not be like ExFx so, especially if they are sosp, people may not think they are so first due to their main type, their instinct could be more distinguishable compared to other members of their own type. Again, e5 so is different than e3 so e2 so.

    Haruki Murakami's writing has always struck me as SX-blind. (not based on this thread) opinions?

    It's what bothers me with his writing even though I appreciate it greatly at the same time.
