    I say "so-see-onics".

    I was thinking about this the other day. It causes me some anxiety, because I think I'd sound like a fool either way (i.e. that I was doomed to say it the wrong way to someone who knew how to say it the right way). The very small number of times I've said it out loud to someone, I've mumbled it and some phoneme which probably isn't used in the English language comes out in the ambiguous bit. But its good to know people say it both ways.

    Same here. For example, I had no idea people pronounce it with two "s"-s, I only pronounce the first s, the second is that "ts" sound baby mentioned.

    I pronounce all those socio- words with an sh sound. SoSHEEonics, soSHEEOpath, soSHEEology. I think it definitely has to do with where you're from, because I never hear these words(other than Socionics of course) pronounced differently.

    I was gonna ask that same night anyways... after niff and someone else said it... I thought... wow, they say it totally different than I do. I think this has been a somewhat informative thread actually. I think it's something that a lot of people would ask about if they ever really thought of it.

    I would DEFINITELY say it has something to do with where a person's from though.

    It is "so-she-onics" simply because one says "social" as "so-shul" as opposed to "so-sal". Otherwise you just sound camp.
    Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.

    I agree with So-see-on-icks.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    with finnish letters it would be so-si-o-niks. So in english, it would be with short o. If I tried to to pronounce it in english. I would change the first so to sou (like in the word "so"). So something like sou-si-o-niks.

    So actually I would say it like this in english: Sou - (like word "so") si - (like in word "sit", without the t) o - (like the o in word "dog") - niks (like the word "Nick's").

    Maybe my answer is final now

    ...the human race will disappear. Other races will appear and disappear in turn. The sky will become icy and void, pierced by the feeble light of half-dead stars. Which will also disappear. Everything will disappear. And what human beings do is just as free of sense as the free motion of elementary particles. Good, evil, morality, feelings? Pure 'Victorian fictions'.
