    Default Effectiveness of intertype relations theory

    Are intertype relations effective for you, and if so, how much?

    For example, it is not very effective for me because I tend to get along better with ISFj’s than ENFp’s.

    All things being equal, they've been pretty confirmed IRL in my case, although not precisely the way they are described. Also, to be understood, you have to look at each single relationship individually: for instance, the ENTj-ISFj duality is very different from the ESTp-INFp duality, and so on.

    In my case, I can say that they mostly work the way they "should", but:

    - super-ego is often better than usually described, although it does tend to have problems in the longer term.
    - benefit seems to be the most susceptible to individual variations.
    - same for activity.

    Yeah it sounds like circular thinking -- but in my experience, if you consistently (that is regardless of individual circumstances) notice that your intertype relationships are "reversed", then there is a mistyping, either of yourself or of those types.

    Pretty much all my relations with people have fit the intertype relationships model. The only exception being ESFjs I can get on with to a certain extent, but this is learned through (albeit painful) experience rather than anything natural.

    I think personal values can skew socionics. Usually one's own socionic set of values and personal values are the same, but I don't think this is always the case.
