Socionics glossary

Coming from MBTI and trying to learn socionics, or even diving into it on its own, can be a daunting task. Information is often inaccessible, and there are plenty of new terms, even from the view of someone that is well experienced in MBTI. If you can use the language of MBTI to talk straight …

Function transfer – to move towards our strength

Learn how we transfer information from one function to the other, as a defense mechanism #socionics #ModelA

In the stack of cognitive functions, through model A, influenced by dimensionality, and in even more detail through the different dichotomies we can apply to each function, some functions are stronger, and some are weaker. In some, we have a lot of confidence; in others, we have almost none at all. Through some, we feel …

Forms of cognition – by Gulenko

Gulenko is one of the more controversial socionists, and has created plenty of models that are more or less used in wider socionics. One model that he has created is the “forms of cognition”. It’s based around the so called supervision rings. Supervision is an intertype relationship, and the supervision ring is the four types that are …

Definition When it comes to extraverts, this energy is focused outwards, on external …

ENTJ, the LIE: how type descriptions influence perception

The LIE has a clear, archetypal picture, regardless of if it’s viewed through MBTI or Socionics. Both of those holds some truth to what being an LIE actually is about, but both have big issues. Much of this comes down to the expected enneagram they attribute to the type, which in itself is problematic. MBTI …

Identity

Identity is the relationship between two persons of the same type. Sharing every reinin dichotomies, every aspect in Model A, their thought process is very similar – which causes both pros and cons. The advantages in this relationship are obvious, there is a kind of understanding that isn’t reached in any other combination. We easily understand how …
