been thinking about this lately...socionics info falling into the wrong hands here in the USA. it occured to me that the MBTI folks, while their functional ordering is out of whack, perhaps kept back the unconscious functions from the public out of fear of what people here in the USA would do with this info. they phrased things in the so called sugar coated way to avoid people being scapegoated for their weaker functions. truth be told, myers briggs has been misused and abused by corporations with suspicious hiring practices here in the west even though it is sugar coated.
i was thinking the MBTI people would be right because look what's happening here at the forum....we're getting into these conflicts over Fe/Ti vs Fi/Te, Se vs Ne etc etc etc. these conflicts are probably not a bad thing here.....but when they are played out on a political public forum, or used for profit or gain or manipulation by unscrupulous people who are unrestrained here in the West....then what?
is socionics the poisoned apple in the garden of eden? if so, how? if not, why not?
how is this theory best used do we think?
