Description



Primary Instinct: Sexual

 

Those with the Sexual Primary Instinct are devoted to transmitting something meaningful to future generations, whether it is their genes or their ideas. It also means they wish to become "one" with another entity, which they achieve by seeking intense, original experiences that fully engage them. This tendency manifests as their intense desire to form intimate, one-on-one connections with people and as their passionate pursuit of hobbies and interests. Without satisfying these desires, they feel incomplete. Their passion and creativity result from the repression and rechanneling of their sexual drive.

 

They live a life of intensity, often taking risks to achieve their ideals. Because they wish to spread their “self” onto other entities, they tend to be good at drawing attention to themselves and their ideas. They have an expanded construct of the self and they are willing to sacrifice themselves for people or ideas that they care most about.

 

 

Secondary Instinct: Social

 

The Social Instinct is channeled to serve the needs of the Sexual Instinct. The result is that this type seeks to fully engage in creating worldly change by becoming an agent or symbol of its transformation. In other words, they channel their sexual energy and aggression into intimate, one-on-one relationships and heartfelt political, artistic, or scientific causes. Some find this energy invasive while others find it gravitating. They are often torn between peaceful living and a life dedicated to fulfilling their passions.

 

They enjoy challenging others, especially those opposed to their way of expression. Inclined to test the limits, they may support radical views. They seek to redefine sexuality to reflect their own visions and ideals. The intimacy they establish with each person or pursuit is uniquely defined and completes a part of them.

 

 

Potential Weaknesses

 

The Primary Instinct can be both a strength and a weakness. When people with the Sexual Primary Instinct become overly preoccupied with its fulfillment, they may be bored with reality and indulge in excessive risk-taking, self-medication, or thrill-seeking. Some may disregard protective boundaries of the self and develop issues with possessiveness or dependency in their relationships.

 

Sexual-Socials have the Secure Instinct as their least dominant Instinct. As a result, they may appear erratic and ungrounded, with a tendency to ignore practical matters such as financial security, maintaining an orderly life, and health. They may also be frustrated in a normal, stable living. In their youth, they may find daily tasks such as eating or bathing to be a chore.

 

The dominant Instinct is often used to compensate for the least dominant Instinct. For instance, a Sexual-Social scientist or artist may choose to fully engage in their passions and rely on grants or benefactors to provide them with financial security.

Relationships

 

 

In relationships, they seek closeness, passion, and meaningful sex. Mentally and emotionally, they wish to be able to fully open up to their partners, and they are most fulfilled when their partners do the same. Sex to them is far more than a physical act. In fact, those who simply see sex as a vessel for physical pleasure more than likely do not possess the Sexual Primary Instinct.

 

They are keenly aware of the quality of intimacy between themselves and their partners. They see intimacy, or closeness, as the measure of how healthy the relationship is. They will readily leave relationships in which they cannot fully bond, but they will become “one” with their partners in relationships that are a good fit. They care about how their partners affect them in the social realm, but not nearly as much as the level of intimacy that the partner is able to provide.

 

The passion they have for former partners does not fade. Instead, it is overshadowed by someone that they have become more passionate about. They idealize about potential partners, always longing for greater intimacy and intensity. This may lead some to redefine and experiment with the construct of sex. They tend to hold off marriage until they believe that they have found the one. They may become spiteful of someone if they were unable to satisfy an intense desire to connect. Dullness is their biggest fear, and personal rejection is their biggest insult.

 

 

Compatibility

 

A couple with similar Instincts is most compatible because it allows the two to walk in the same direction. This is the opposite from Personality, in which “complements” attract. Walking in the same direction allows a couple to reach mutually agreeable decisions, while having complementary Personalities allows the couple to solve problems using different perspectives. The latter also adds a sense of freshness to the relationship while preventing overlapping identities.

 

Their ideal partners are the Sexual-Socials, Sexual-Secures, and Social-Sexuals.

 

 

 +

The two will have an intimate, powerful, and sexual relationship. They will be engaged in finding new, stimulating ways to demonstrate their energy and passion. They will understand each other’s aspirations, as both dedicate a portion of themselves to their worldly pursuits, and the two will likely work together to achieve a common vision.

 

 

 +

The two will have an intimate, powerful, and sexual relationship. They will be engaged in finding new, stimulating ways to demonstrate their energy and passion. The Sexual-Social will divert some of this energy into fulfilling worldly pursuits, while the Sexual-Secure will increase the level of depth of the relationship.

 

 

 +

The two will have an intimate and energetic relationship. They will be engaged in finding new ways to enjoy fun activities together. The Sexual-Social will engage in stimulating, creative pursuits. The Social-Sexual will help the Sexual-Social channel that energy into socially-beneficial pursuits, as well as help promote the Sexual-Social’s ideas and status.

 

 

Incompatible Partners

 

If paired with someone without the Sexual Instinct, they will feel that the relationship lacks intimacy. This feeling will make them feel incomplete, and they will seek a new partner. In addition, they will feel a lack of passion in the sex, which is perhaps the most obvious sign that the partner is incompatible. Meanwhile, incompatible partners will feel that the Sexual-Social is too invasive, expecting an unreasonable level of passion. In addition, the former may see Sexual-Socials as being too flirtatious or aggressive, even when the latter do not consider themselves to be behaving in such ways.

Career

 

 

Sexual-Socials feel most fulfilled when working on projects that are in line with the goals of their Primary Instinct. Namely, they wish to fully engage themselves in creative, stimulating projects that promote the growth of something new. With a Social Secondary Instinct, they have a greater awareness of societal needs and can navigate themselves socially to achieve the aims of their Primary Instinct. Thus, they prefer careers that allow them to satisfy their desire for intensity and innovation through their socially beneficial means.

 

 

Examples of careers that they may enjoy include:

 

Anthropologist

Artist

Entrepreneur

Geneticist

Musician/Performer

Neuroscientist

Politician/Social Activist
