Okay, so there's probably a thread about this somewhere, but I couldn't find one, so I'm sorry if this is redundant but the difference between the mbti and socionics and what it implies has been confusing me.
(I'm just going to use my own type because that's the simplest for me, but obviously this applies to all of the types.)
I took the mbti and I tested as ISFP. According to this theory, that would mean that my dominant function is Fi and my auxiliary function is Se (followed by Ni and then Te).
Now, according so Socionics, Fi Se = ISfj.
If this is the case, then why do I relate to the Socionics type ISFp more than ISFj?
I also took a Socionics test and the result was ISFp. This makes no sense to me. How can I relate to (and test) both the mbti and socionics description of an ISFP/p when they have different leading functions?
So I probably sound like an idiot, but I'd really appreciate it if anyone could clarify this for me.
