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 …

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, …

Models of socionics

Socionics is a theory that is based around the original idea, or model A. But it’s not quite that simple, there are other models as well, adding different aspects to the theory of socionics.  Model A Model A is the basic socionics, coming from Aushra Augusta, the founder of socionics. Intertype relationships, the function stack, what the …

Functions and their position

So we’ve gone through the functions and the function stack, but how does it look when it gets combined? Ne, extraverted intuition, is about seeing the inner essence of someone or something, seeing potential and possible outcomes. It’s also called intuition of ideas, being about locating and opening new doors. With Ne in the leading position, …
