    Default Result of: "how your quadra views other quadras"

    So, knowing we are inherently set to a different disposition with other people, what are we going to do with this information? Are you just going to try to make relationships based on your quadra? Or....?

    I have lots of friends of different quadras - including Alphas! Including INTjs even!

    I use it like I use all of Socionics. If I think someone is being WHATEVER and it's relevant to their type/quadra or our relationship, I say to myself something like, "She doesn't mean to come across that way - it's just a supervision thing and not intentional - let it slide off your back." So I am able to step back and not take things personally that I might otherwise.

    the quadra thing happens in real life when people of the same quadra group together and click along the lines of their quadra values. so for example, here at the forum a couple of people from a given quadra might start interacting along quadra lines, but it's brief, and everyone usually returns to the main forum. so i think people from other quadras would notice when this happens and might judge the nature of the interaction between the members of said quadra, but my main issue is that it's not like there's these strict groups of people who are in the same quadra with an inviolate boundaries around them. social stuff is a lot more free-flowing than that. people move in and out of groups all the time. but you do get a certain synergy going with members of your own quadra. groups like this would stick together mostly in leisure type settings, in other words, with people chosen as friends.

    but there are many other social arenas including work, church, school, hobby stuff etc, where you may or may not find many members of your own quadra, so it's important to find value in the values of the other quadras, because all these value have a certain worth in different kinds of situations.

    so, kinda like SM said, i have all kinds of friends, from all the different quadras, so who the hell cares what quadra they are in.

    no, because information about how other people perceive things is totally, absolutely, unequivocally irrelevant to anything that you might ever do. under absolutely no circumstances whatsoever could that ever have some practical value, for example by getting along with someone else. never.

    If you know how others perceive you and how they prefer to be treated has enormous value especially in business relations and all kinds of short term interactions. In long term you are probably not able to adapt your behavior but if you need to keep someone happy / not piss someone off for a short while it does help a lot to know their socionics type.

    That sounded like it was very heavy on the sarcasm to me. Particularly the second thing he wrote.

    That's actually quite profound.

    Although morbid.

    Because I said so.
    She is wise
    beyond words
    beautiful within
    her soul
    brighter than
    the sun
    lovelier than
    love
    dreams larger
    than life
    and does not
    understand the
    meaning of no.
    Because everything
    through her, and in her, is
    "Yes, it will be done."
