One of the main features of socionics verses American MBTI theory is their relationship types. A staple of socionics is the theory that functions not only affect the personality of an individual, but these functions play a role in the relationships of people and groups as well. Therefore as intimacy level increases(going from informal, to friendship, to family and finally to close relationships or marriage), functions and these relation types become more and more important to the nature of the relationship.
