Socionics Types: Your Role in Society

Each quadra, and through that each type, plays a specific role in society…

Information elements

Information elements, the name socionics has for functions, are divided into macro- and microelements.

SEE – winning through accident

A young boy was once found by a great warrior and philosopher of his time, in truth one of the greatest. The man saw great promise in the young man, great strength, passion and perseverance. But he saw more than mere strength. He saw a boy with the potential to do what he himself or …

Individuation

Individuation is the process of making what’s unconscious conscious, to improve as a person by accepting and including the unconscious and repressed elements of our personality. Encouragement on this process however, is not as common as it should be.  Looking around online at type, the advice is almost always to focus on your strength, and …

LII – creating systems, one after another

For the LII, being democratic types, and valuing Ne and Fe, just as with all alpha types, free information is among their most sacred ideas. Together with being an NT, information is what makes up the center of this type. rather than just being the means to a greater end. It’s not just that information …

Semi duality

Semi duality is the relationship where the other person leads with your dual-seeking, but doesn’t match in creative and mobilizing function. For an LIE/ENTJ, the semi dual would be an EII/INFP. This is, just as many other ones, an ITR that is good, but far from perfect, without problems. For rational types, Keirsey described this …

IEI – visionary of revolutions

IEI – visionary, revolutionary, idealistic, ideological. Dynamic, planning, analyzing. Ethical, emotional, Esenin.  The IEI, through their leading function Ni, or T, live through an analysis of time and trends. This makes their approach to change and reality highly dynamic, focusing on the change rather than the different states before and after. Rather than taking charge …

Function dichotomies

Socionics, as familiar, uses an eight function model, where each function spot has very distinct characteristics. There, beyond the strength of them, several different dichotomies that can be applied for the functions, their use, and their outlook.  To explain these, I will use the numbers that are attributed to them in socionics. For an IEI/INFJ, …

Indicators of dimensionality

So we have the dimensions, how strong functions are. But how do we spot it in people, how do we see how strong a function is? (This list is exclusively from School of system socionics, only paraphrased.) For one dimensional functions, suggestive/dual seeking and vulnerable/point of least resistance, the following points are characteristic: Describing ones own …

Kindred

Kindred is a relationship between two types that shares the same leading function, i.e. IEI/INFJ and ILI/INTJ. It’s a relationship that’s characterized by a very good understanding, similar to the one of interquadral relations.  Since the two types shares the same leading process (and consequentially their suggestive, ignoring and role function), they have their worldview …
