    Default Most misunderstood socionics type?

    i would have guessed an introverted type, but there are many factors that can lead to bad communication.

    So i guess the answer will consider both the abnormality or less easily understood thought processes and behavior, and also perhaps the way in which communication plays out with this type.

    Looking at my own life, I'm inclined to type in "INFj".
    However, I say "ISFj".

    I would say INFj, also.

    I would have to say ISFj. INFjs are the most ignored. INTps have the most hidden potential.

    I think every type is misunderstood on some level. Isn't this what personality theory was meant to help with? Trying to help us understand motivations behind people's behavior?

    Of course not! It's meant to help you stay away from the evil/annoying/weird/dumb/shallow ones and find yourself a dual. Nothing else matters! :wink:

    Now descend back into the abyss, you needy narcistic INFp!

    Well, I don't know if they are INFp, but I'll add some confusion for confusion's sake:
    Is this all real?
    Can I trust what I see and know?
    Are the others saying what I think I hear?
    Is there truly a Pi?
    and
    What is the meaning of...
    X!?!?

    I've thought about all of those exept...

    Is there truly a Pi?
    I couldn't care less.


    What is the meaning of...
    X!?!?
    If this is implying math, then I mirror my last answer.

    In socionics language "understanding" is relative to whether or not the people being observed share the same strong functions in their conscious ring.

    I'm not being a smartass, but i think that this is the real point to all of it.

    yeah kinda wadz.

    i just felt like there are some types that would be more prone to being minuderstood. even if you have similar functions or should understand by socionic standards, if you're a woman of very few words or speak in your own fnatasy language it would be really easy to misunderstand you.

    No, I hear what you're saying. It isn't that it was a bad question.

    It's all relative to what the societal standards are. If the society values a certain way of living, like the U.S. values Te, business logic, that will be regarded as a standard which is revered and necessary. In a church a quiet, ethical type, will be revered and and understood as a good person, even by people which could very well have a conflicting value system. A businessman will go to church in order to stimulate their weak areas and gain that neglected "peace of mind", but they couldn't really do it as a profession. It changes from group to group and is relative from individual to individual.

    So, like many things, it depends on the scenery.

    I think a good way to look at it would be by thinking about what contexts certain people are more likely to be misunderstood in... or burned alive in.

    i think a person could be minuderstood equally-- or more than other types-- in a business situation and in a religious situation. It's not about being different per se

    if you think that everything's relative sociologically, then i'll pick a scenery at random-- this forum.

    Coming back to this... I don't think ILEs are misunderstood so much as either disliked or looked down upon by some people. I remember on our Highschool baseball team that their were exactly three ILEs, and every single one of them were hated for some reason (not by me but by most). I think part of that was because all of them could be seen as suck ups or the coach's little babies or something. One of these guys was known as the team bitch, one of them knew the coach personally and still showed off how he was such a "good guy" and did everything, and the third one was talked about behind his back so much because he riviled guy #2 in carring equipment and guy #1 in playing puppy dog to the coach to the point of being somewhat obnoxious.

    I came to the same conclusion as McNew that it probably had something to do with their Fe.

    The most misunderstood types should be those who can find the least "Understanding" on first or second function examples among others.

    That is... plain statistics ^^ Look for the "least understood" function pair, do some calculations and you'll fall in somewhere .

    on the other hands is mind-reading without saying a word... so anyone would easily misunderstand those
