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”.

Contrary

The contrary relationship is between types that share the exact same functions, but different attitudes. They are also from the opposite quadra, and share the “club”, or the two middle letters, with each other.

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 …
