    Default SOCIONICS: *AN INTRODUCTION*

    Dear forum members and guests,

    I hearby present you with a draft sample (pages 1-25) of my book, based on my understanding of Socionics.

    URL: http://www.outgoing-introvert.com/so...ion_sample.pdf

    Please kindly note:

    You may need to rotate the PDF counter-clockwise in order to be viewed correctly. I also suggest that you save a copy to your computer, re-open it in Adobe Reader and view in full screen mode for best viewing.

    SnowyC

    PS. The book is not totally finished yet and as such i am still in the process of crediting any authors that i have referenced from. Please consider as a work-in-progress when reading. I have given you a FREE sample that includes the whole of the introduction and the first section of chapter 1.

    I'm sorry but your book is really really not good.

    Function descriptions are incorrect, including the intj description.

    It is crystal clear that your understanding and knowledge of socionics is very poor.

    I admire your effort though. Anything for money. :wink:

    Why do you change you post writing style just for emphasis?It's just ridiculous.

    This book is a plagiarism of things you can find on the internet very easily.

    A bad plagiarism, moreover. The description of the functions are gross. The cover is gross. "An introduction to the wonderful world of socionics" - what's that, fairy tales?

    You want a sticky, even without having gained any previous recognition for some fucking good contribution.

    You're also the owner of a friggin site that tells you how to interact with people though a functional paranoid analisys of their behaviour.


    You even voted for yourself in the poll, how miserable.

    I'd hate to see snowyc trying to make money from a book about Socionics, when he doesn't know much about it.

    It would be like a lawyer writing a book about engineering. And for what. And for what - oh yes ... MONEY.

    To the author: can you please show a list of references you have included into your book (if any)?
    www.socioniko.net is no longer my site.

    I admit, I have forgotten to reference one particular site that i found very useful when i began writing this book. The part of my writings in question was the initial section on / Introverted Thinking. I used text from here: http://greenlightwiki.com/lenore-exe...nExegesisWiki?

    It just needs properly referencing, I don't need a bollocking about it. In actual fact, i have already been in touch with the Wiki author who clearly told me that he didn't require a full referencing, perhaps just a mention in the acknowledgements. I have made an honest mistake, nothing more or less. And for those who think i'm in it for the money, why not? It's a creative piece of work, i have as much right to be successful as the next person in a free-enterprise society.

    Thanks Dmitiri for pointing that out. To everyone else, you can leave your Ego's at the door.

    PS. my use of smilies and formatting (and voting for myself) implies nothing, i was simply excited to promote a part derived/mostly original work that i spent many days writing.

    PS PS. we all want the same thing: prosperity, so why make a fool of yourself and insult my creativity, it's the lowest form of wit in my opinion.

    As if. Perhaps you should try reading next time with your eyes and mind open instead of blagging out the first thing that enters your Introverted Intuition (ego) and telling us how impratical my writing is with your Extroverted Thinking (ego).

    The only paradox I know is the one that exists where people belong to and are trapped by this thing called Ego. A mask of irrationality and dishonest integrations of the mind follows.

    Haha, Darling Dear, you are the one with the ego! You say so yourself in your recordings do you not? The reason I called it a paradox is because of Sarah’s lack of proper punctuation and her, ah, use of ur. Yes, a paradox indeed. Your English is fine. Don’t expect people to kiss your ass, it’s not going to happen. This manual unseasoned at best.

    snowyc, I think it was a decent work. The part about "the analyst" was at least reasonably accurate, speaking for myself, and my experiences. It is nice to see another "analyst" who is "living unlimited", as I like to say.

    For an introduction to the average person, I think it's decent. Everything could always be improved, but from my casual glance over (the analyst section), I thought it was okay. Best of luck

    If you are new to socionics then i don't think your opinion carries much weight.

    Thanks to HUGO i.e. the insults and immaturity:

    I GIVE UP

    PS. I was simply a humble person trying to be creative, what is the problem with that? Why does money have to come into it? I simply did what made me happy... all i sense here is blatant envy by a select few namely HUGO. If you don't understand my motivations, that's your problem. Keep your d*ck in your pants and play fair when giving feedback or say nothing.

    PS. PS. If we want to measure someone's EGO here, just look at the number of posts which is probably one of the only things here that doesn't lie.

    Thanks my INTj cousin. You are indeed correct. We may have identical brain types or share a relation of identity BUT we are both individuals with our own unique lives, that's the great thing about it.

    Hi Snowyc,

    You said you are being creative, but your creativity is pointless without adequate knowledge about socionics (which you clearly don't have).

    Using that language shows your true colors.

    Hmmm, what does that show about your motivations? I wonder.

    Nobody wants to talk about your half-baked book on what you think is socionics.
    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...

    You shouldn't give up just because some forum members said you suck...

    Why don't you just go through it again and try to see what they are talking about and fix it? Do some more research etc etc...

    I didn't read it btw so I have no opinion. But if Diana didn't like it for the reasons she's stated then I probably would feel very similar. Can't say for sure though.

    Thanks. I appreciate your encouragement. The fact that i've had feedback good and bad is all-in-all a good thing as bleak as things seemed for me at first. I've had time to reflect and i know what needs to be done.

    Here are my constructive comments.

    The main problem is that you do make socionics look like another version of MBTI, like its detractors usually say. Your manual concentrates on the profiles of the types but you say virtually nothing - besides some passing comments - on the intertype relationships.

    I haven't read your profiles, but perhaps they are good, as they stand. No idea. But, again, anyone who is familiar with MBTI but not socionics will just think your book confirms that socionics is just "MBTI with J/P inverted" or whatever.

    Any good book on socionics, in my opinion, has to start with the relationships and then move on to the individual types, also because this is how socionics got started - Augustinavichute noticed how different couples with apparently similar pairs of personalities could either get along peacefully or horribly - that is, she noticed how the change to quasi-identical could shift the relationship from dual to conflict (like ISFj with ENTj or ENTp).

    Without any of this, your manual isn't a book on socionics - at best, a collection of profiles.

    indeed, i considered a further chapter on the intertype relationships or as a second book.
