Complete relationship chart between psychological ("personality") types. Complete relationship chart between psychological ("personality") types Chart #1 Key to the chart: Usage: Type A x Type B -> Intertype Relationship.
Example #1: A = 'ENFp ', B = 'INFp ', Cross-reference result = 'Cnt'.Conclusion: Between ENFp and INFp there is Contrary Intertype Relationship. Example #2: A = 'ISTj ', B = 'ENTp ', Cross-reference result = 'Sp<'.Conclusion: Between ISTj and ENTp there is Intertype Relationship of Supervision, where ISTj is Supervisee to ENTp. Chart #2 Usage: Your [A] is [Intertype Relationship] to your [B]. Example #1: A = 'Qid', B = 'Act', Cross-reference result = 'Ego'.Conclusion: Your Quasi-identical is Super-Ego to your Activity Example #2: A = 'Bn<', B = 'Ego', Cross-reference result = 'Bn>'.Conclusion: Your Beneficiary is Benefactor to your Super-Ego. Introduction to Socionics. 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. 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. I want to build the test, and then make a website, perhaps even an app that: Allows you to take a real test, and then has detailed, complete information about your type. I need a few people that can help me out. I think if we could build an app for iOS and Android, we could perhaps even turn this whole thing into a startup company. This is the future, ladies and gentleman… But, I absolutely need a few good people to help me with this. 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. Until this moment I was not completely sure of my belonging to the "mainstream," since I had personally experienced a number of more peripheral groups and tried in vain to correct their mistakes, and had had less direct contact with mainstream socionists. Socionic splinter groups Adherents of socionic splinter groups usually do not recognize themselves as such, but think they are studying "standard" socionics.
Function dichotomies. Functions can be categorized according to dichotomies.
The first three dichotomies listed below are taken as the "basic" dichotomies. The last four derive from them just as Reinin dichotomies derive from the Jungian foundation, and are thus subject to the same criticism as Reinin dichotomies. Mental and vital Perhaps the most important function dichotomy is mental/vital, sometimes called conscious/unconscious. Subtype. When individuals of the same socionic type can be grouped into subcategories by certain traits, we speak of "subtypes.
" Many socionists use some kind of subtype system to help describe intratype differences. A number of such systems are familiar to many western readers. Subtype systems 2 Subtype Theory This is the general subtype theory most often used in the West, see 2 Subtype Theory. 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. I hypothesized that a shift in focus (not just dabbling, but a real, full-fledged shift) to the suggestive function essentially turned off the neurons that had been active and activated those that were least connected to the worn-out neurons. This would create optimal conditions for the brain to recuperate and beef up its reserves in the depleted areas. Presumably, over time this exercise would enhance the "firepower" of the leading function, much like weight training strengthens the muscles. 1. And . 2. 3. Introverted Intuition Semantics. This is the first of a series of lists of the words and language associated with different information aspects.
For the methodology behind the research of Kochubeeva, Mironov, and Stoyalova behind this, read my article at Socionics.us. To try your hand at practicing. 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.

The Psyche and Reality: Augusta's Understanding. In an earlier post I mentioned the confusion surrounding the terms "function" and "information aspect. " In actuality there are three different things that each have their own proper name, and people often mix them up or use them interchangeably for convenience. To clear up the confusion, I have created the following visual (the underlined words are not links): *Note that in Jungian typology both IM elements and functions of the psyche are called "functions" ("thinking," "feeling," etc. are called functions, but so are the "leading function," "vulnerable function," etc.), while there is no concept that corresponds to information aspects in socionics.
Augusta saw objective reality as consisting of "bodies and fields" - objects and their interrelations. Individuals' perception is able to register all aspects of reality (or at least those accessible to our species) to some degree, but focuses on certain aspects more than others. Socionic Model of the Psyche. 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. Different types have different information elements in each of the eight positions. Thus, there are eight different possible varieties of each of the functions, depending on which information element "occupies" the particular function. However, information elements cannot be placed randomly in the model; there are rules for how each model is constructed that limit the number of types to 16 (see below). For more information about the socionic model, see this article with a great visual at my blog.
***UPDATE 10/28/2007: I have been working on a much more in-depth discussion of Model A at Wikisocion. Information Aspects. Let's revisit the information aspects with the help of The Semantics of the Information Aspects. First, a very brief look at what the information aspects are about (areas of overlap of both the extraverted and introverted versions of the aspect): Intuition ( and ): creating mental imagesSensing ( The Information Aspects - Simplified Definitions. The 8 information aspects include four "introverted" and four "extraverted" elements. Extraverted aspects reflect characteristics of reality that exist outside the subject (observer), while introverted aspects reflect characteristics that exist in the mind (psyche) of the subject. The difference is often subtle, but not impossible to learn. For example, if I see that someone's shirt is plastered in mud, that is a characteristic of external reality.
If I feel repulsed at the shirt, that is a characteristic of my internal world. Information Aspects as Building Blocks of Interaction. A lot is happening behind the scenes when two people communicate. Not only are they exchanging verbal information on or around a certain topic, but they are jumping from information aspect to information aspect and sending each other signals from different functions that affect the other person in certain ways. These subtle interactions can be easily observed and studied if you focus your attention on them; otherwise they go unnoticed.
In brief, businesslike conversations of a few minutes or so, people may speak using the "voice" of just a single function. In longer, informal conversations between people with a low level of compatilibility, people generally get stuck in a certain voice and can't get out of it, which causes mental fatigue if the interaction lasts for more than five or ten minutes (probably as a result of certain groups of neurons temporarily depleting their resources).
"Openness" of the Mental Functions. Characteristics of the Creative Function. How I Look for Extraverted Intuition. This topic goes back to the post on tacit knowledge in socionics. Simplifying Reality Through the Weak Functions. This topic came to me while working on a translation of Augusta's The Dual Nature of Man. Augusta's type was ILE. She had a definite tendency to simplify factors affecting relationships and interaction between people. Today her theoretical understanding of socionics and intertype interaction still lies at the foundation of socionics, but they have been fleshed out and are widely recognized to be not as clear-cut as she originally described them. Model A. Reduced Formulas of Socionic Types: What Each Type Does Best. Intertype Relations Chart. Inter-type-relations-chart.gif (450×677) ILE - Intuitive Logical Extratim Type Description. The trademark quality of this type is the quest for new information and experience that stimulates the mind and opens up new possibilities for thought and for new endeavors.
ILEs are typically drawn to things that are poorly understood or simply unknown, and to fundamental issues (needs work). They like to systematize their insights and experience and discuss them with others. Their friends know them as people who can’t help but share their insights and interesting discoveries and who always have some interesting topic on their mind. In their service of all that is intriguing and intellectually stimulating in the outside world, ILEs typically neglect their physical needs and activities that bring pleasure and relaxation and emotional release. However, they are highly receptive to others’ attempts to help them in these areas. ILE subtypes.
