Social Instinctual Subtype
The "social" Instinctual
Subtypes are driven by the ongoing search for groups and community,
akin to the herd instinct in animals, where there are safety and security
in numbers. The focus of attention is on"the group" and "our greater
world." The primary desire is for groups, which is manifested by
an imbalanced perceived need for people, recognition,
popularity, honor, status, and social acceptance.
concerns of the social Instinctual Subtypes involve
issues of relating - for example, "to relate or not to relate" or "how to relate." The
survival strategy is an emphasis on sociability or unsociability.
The common theme statements reflect an inclination to categorize
oneself in terms of others, such as "who am I?", with this type being
defined by "how comfortably and successfully I experience my group" -
i.e., issues dealing with "how am I perceived by the group?"
energy projected is described as "split energy" and is often experienced
as "scattered" and projected outward, appearing personable, superficial,
and cursory in nature. It is imperative that "a good impression is
made" and that "nothing important is missed." The social Instinctual
Subtypes will "sacrifice for the group" to insure status. Rather
than looking inward or to a mate for security and to "solve problems," these
types tend to "look outward," based upon a belief that "my value
is dependent upon how I am perceived by the group."
