finer distinctions


We express the energy of our type through our instinctual sub-type. These are the three major drives with which we are involved on a daily basis. One of these is usually more of a preoccupation than the others and gets a lot of our attention. Once again, the ultimate goal is balance, in this case among the three drives.

The three instinctual subtypes are:

Self-preservation -This is the instinctual drive concerned with food, shelter, comfort, security and other survival issues.

Social - This instinctual drive is concerned with the fact that we live in groups and we depend on social structure. Our sense of belonging, status and affiliation are a part of this.

Intimate - This is the drive concerned with one-to-one relationships, attractiveness, intimacy, and sexuality.
