Complete relationship chart between psychological ("personality") types
Socionics is a theory of human interaction based on fixed patterns of information processing known as “socionic types.” A socionic type (there are 16 of them) is a description of some very fundamental ways in which a person’s psyche works. These psychic qualities define to a large degree a person’s relationships with others, his or her perception of life as a whole, and the niche he or she strives to occupy among people. Each person’s psyche is a lopsided construction that attempts to pursue certain kinds of information (stimuli) while minimizing others. Introduction to Socionics
Who Wants to Build a Startup with Me and Get Super Rich While Changing the World? I have the concept and the knowledge… I need a small team who want to change the world. I really want to develop a new Personality Type testing system, more advanced than the standard MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator). There is so much useful information scattered about the internet, it’s just that you have to look in a million different places and put the pieces together yourself. As an ENTP, I’m super excited about this challenge and am very knowledgeable about the subject. I’ve even studied up on Socionics, which is like twice as complicated as the MBTI.
Blog - December 2006 One of the difficulties of socionics is that one keeps encountering different "strains" of the typology. In the Russian speaking socionics world, one can get the impression that there is no consensus on how to define the types, and that everyone types as he or she pleases. This was my impression as well until I came across the celebrity benchmark project that convinced me of the existence of a socionics "mainstream," as well as the fact that I was securely in that mainstream myself, since I found I could agree with the vast majority of the types in the celebrity benchmark list.
Function dichotomies Functions can be categorized according to dichotomies. The first three dichotomies listed below are taken as the "basic" dichotomies.
When individuals of the same socionic type can be grouped into subcategories by certain traits, we speak of "subtypes." Subtype
Clarifying Quadra Values I have written elsewhere that the suggestive function can become a source of compensatory activities to temporarily take the strain off the leading function. The explanation I gave is that the areas of the brain being used for a certain kind of activity associated with the leading function begin to use up their energy resources after a period of time (generally several hours), producing tiredness, apathy, or irritability.

Interplay between Leading and Suggestive Function in Self-Realized Individuals I have written elsewhere that the suggestive function can become a source of compensatory activities to temporarily take the strain off the leading function.

In an earlier post I mentioned the confusion surrounding the terms "function" and "information aspect." The Psyche and Reality: Augusta's Understanding
According to socionics, all eight information elements are perceived by the psyche, but "with different degrees of differentiation and awareness" (Augusta, The Socion, or Socionics Basics). Hence, the socionic model of the psyche (commonly referred to as "Model A") has eight positions, or functions. Socionic Model of the Psyche
