I was curious because it seems there are a lot of people here who don't understand Socionics very well, and/or there are a lot of people here whose type can't be determined with reasonable certainty until they have experience in serious, long term relationships.
It makes sense to pick types from one's own quadra, comparative, or look a like as the next most likely possibilities... but if you're picking types from your conflicting quadra as the next most likely types, something's wrong. How can you be uncertain in both Ni/Se vs. Ne/Si and Fe/Ti vs. Fi/Te? I can understand not being certain of one of the axes, but both? (And even if you've never been in a serious, long term relationship, you've interacted with parents and teachers and friends and other family and coworkers and whatnot... not to mention the fact that the 3rd and 4th functions are conscious... )
I don't intend to sound condescending. It's not always easy to figure out your quadra values, especially when you're fairly new to the theory. I have in the past (before understanding the information elements) considered myself to be ILE... and even SEI. It's just sort of disturbing that some people seem to think that their next most likely type is their contrary or quasi.
I think it would be a good idea for people to avoid trying to figure out their type in the beginning and just focus on recognizing how things related to the information elements have affected their relationships with people they've known, both positively and negatively. Try to find the common ground that makes you get along so well with some people, and try to pinpoint the primary differences in values that have a tendency to cause conflicts between yourself and others.
Once you recognize these things, there should be less confusion about which of the axes you value. You'll be able to identify which quadra you most likely belong to, and if there's any question about your quadra, it will be between neighboring quadras (instead of conflicting quadras).
