I've been doing some reading on Delta group behaviour over on the Socionics wiki at: http://wikisocion.org/~wikisoci/en/i...e=Delta_Quadra (very interesting site, by the way). Here's a quote for ya:
I bolded the few statements that stood out to me, and that are relevent to the topic at hand. Essentially, how is this kind of group - which sounds like something I could really enjoy and use - formed and maintained? Superficially, at least, the answer lies in the first bolded section, but in that it's also lacking.Groups made up of primarily Delta types tend to be focused on working on projects, enjoying physical recreation, or finding out interesting things about each other. Laughter is usually subdued and brief; instead, people smile a lot and try to be witty and welcoming. Groups need to be focused on some specific productive activity or topic of discussion, or else they fall apart. In Delta groups, there is a lot of splintering and decentralization. This allows for more focused and productive interaction with only those who share your particular interests or sentiments. People jump from small group to small group easily to keep up their interest level. No one demands that the entire group listen to one person or that everyone do the same thing. Delta Quadra types believe that if everyone just pursues their own interests and makes some accommodations for others, the group will be better off anyway. Delta Quadra types do not focusing on building group identity or unity of purpose, but prefer for the group to remain splintered and decentralized.
In the progression of the piece I also sense somewhat of a disconnect when the description starts talking about a need for focus for the group to survive, but that the preference for a, 'let the wind blow how it may,' attitude towards group interaction is prominent. I've seen the 'socials' (irrespective of quadra) hard at work in creating their little networks, and while I admire it, know I could never act in that manner. So based on the above quote, how is a Delta group to surivive, nevermind be formed in the first place?
If any of you enjoy a social setting that may be akin to the above, tell us about it!
