Origin of IM types, differentiation/integration of Socion.
Hypothesis 1 : more classical and quite realistical
1. Brain is created in embryo. It slightly differentiates during its creation like fingerprints.
2. Brain has acquired a differentiation pattern so it won't develop symmetrically.
Hypothesis 2 : less classical but explains more correlation between enneagram types and socionic types
1. Brain is created in embryo. Neurochemical transmitters have some activity in it.
2. Neurochemical transmitters make brain focus more on certain aspects. It makes the brain acquire a differentiation pattern.
3. Brain has lost the capability to develop symmetrically.
Brain have 16 patterns of differentiation. There are no subtypes. On each orthogonal dichotomy, a psyche has 61.8% of a trait and 38.2% of the other. Differentiation of complex systems are most often (possibly always) doing on the golden ratio bias.
Those 16 patterns form the socion, which is itself a symmetrical structure. Psyches integrate to the socion. Types are evenly distributed, so we'll have elements and traits evenly distributed. Integration of complex systems are most often (possibly always) doing on the 1:2 ratio bias.
Differentiation is 382-618, and Integration is 500-500. I read of Mitin and I understood that.
An argument in favor of hypothesis 2 is the analogy with the development of language: there is a certain age-treshold after which a person cannot learn languages to nearly as high an effect as before it. Perhaps development of type is locked down after a certain age in a similar way.
Do you know the precise reasoning for the golden ratio between type preferences...? I'm having difficulty imagining how such a accurate number could have resulted from observation...
Psyche is a natural complex system. Natural complex systems are more likely to differentiate like 618-382.

well if you look long enough, you probably find some correlation with socionics...
