    Are you trying to make a joke or something?


    Or are you actually taking this seriously.

    The problem is that you have to have an accurate understanding of each of these types and have accurately typed people you've known irl in order to have valid results. For most people (especially people who don't know their own type or at least quadra values), this is not the case.

    How is the testing mechanism supposed to work??
    PoLR
    Suggestive Function

    Regular Double-shot Espresso Subtype

    Just because I'm a thinking type doesn't mean I'm not an idiot.

    The idea is that you should prefer types from your own quadra. You choose the type you like better from each pair and then add up how many types from each quadra you chose ("sum kuadraz types belong to"). That's all there is to it.

    I don't know how accurate this test is but for me it shows a clear preference of Fi>Fe and suggests Gamma>Delta. I like the test very much. I wish people would participate so we could see whether the results show a pattern. (I couldn't choose between INTj and INFj which is why there is the 0,5 thingy).

    Alpha:
    1,5

    Beta:
    4

    Gamma:
    8

    Delta:
    7,5

    I don't understand the point of the test, for the reason Joy mentioned. Perhaps it serves to cross-check whether your self-typings and your "favorite types" are consistant with socionics. If you think you're an Alpha and you got far more points for Gamma than Alpha, for instance, then you have these possibilities:

    1) You're not Alpha.
    2) You don't understand the types.
    3) Socionics is bunk generally.
    4) A mix of the above.

    The first time I did it, I got:

    Alpha 7
    Beta 5
    Gamma 5
    Delta 4

    And I decided it wasn't reflective of my quadra. I am not Alpha. And the second time:

    Alpha 7
    Beta 5
    Gamma 8
    Delta 4

    Gamma. How interesting. I'm going to do a lot more research into LIE, because I am seriously considering it as a potential type.

    Anyone truly understands descriptions and can accurately type people they know irl does not need a test like this to determine their quadra values.

    This isn't about need.... it's about experimentation. I don't think this test was planned to be used out in the real world to establish type or quadra...... it's just a mind game to get you to think. At least that's the way I took it.

    I'm with Expat on this one. He convinced me:

    If you take any type - say, ESE.

    And if you understand precisely, functionally, why the ESE is the LII's dual and the ILI's conflictor - why the ESE craves and loathes - why the ESE has a relationship of benefit with the SLE and the IEE, understanding how their functions interact - if you understand what is it about that pleases the LII most but annoys the ILI the most - the moment all of that makes sense in your mind, and you can actually see it playing in the people you interact with, then you have understood socionics, and you don't even need type descriptions anymore.
    Joy, if you were referring to functions when you said 'descriptions', I apologise. If not, take this on board.

    That post is totally irrelevant to the context of what I said. I was answering this post:

    Yeah... it's like asking someone if they prefer pickles or olives when they don't even know what pickles or olives are.

    And if they HAVE tried both pickles and olives and know what they are, they won't need a photo (or description) of each of them to decide which one they like better.
