Enneagram Instinctual Subtype
The "sexual" Instinctual
Subtypes are driven by the ongoing search for intimacy
and one-to-one relationships. The focus of attention
is on "the beloved" and "our intimate world." The
primary desire is for a mate, which is manifested
by an imbalanced perceived need for wholeness,
affinity, and closeness in a continual search for "the
concerns of the sexual Instinctual
Subtypes involve issues of intimacy - for
example, "to be intimate
or not to be intimate" or "how to be intimate." The
survival strategy is abstinence or promiscuity.
The common theme statements reflect an inclination
to define oneself in terms of the mate and the
relationship, such as "what am I?", with this Instinctual
Subtype being defined by "how comfortably and successfully
I experience my relationship" - i.e., issues dealing
with "how am I perceived by my
energy projected is described as "high energy" and
is often experienced as "intense" and laser-like,
appearing to be intently focused, and is usually
playful and light, yet penetrating in nature. There
is a sense of energy and vibration, the search
for the mate, the need to display their strength
and beauty, like the peacock showing its feathers
or, in some manner, acting out the mating ritual
sexual Instinctual Subtypes will "sacrifice
for the relationship" to insure connection. Rather
than looking inward or to the group for security
to "solve the problem," these types tend to "look
to the mate," based upon a belief that "I
cannot be whole unless I
find my other half."
