    Who else comes up with theories? Also, what Fe is to be gained from challenging an existing system which has consensus? That right there rules out ILE participation.

    The idiot has spoken again. If you can't see that tcaudilllg is an LII, well then there's no hope for you.

    Ah cut the sarcasm. I've been wondering, do you favor unproven strategies for progress, or not favor them?

    You seriously think ILEs only challenge theories because of the Fe they get out of it?

    What do you think they are? I've actually been doubting machintruc's being an LII recently.

    Oh yeah! The only reason I ever do critical thinking of my own is to win the approval of others. The rest of the time I smile and nod and use my talents to reinforce the masses. My ultimate goal in life is to follow the consensus and thereby win the popularity contest of life. That's why anytime someone challenges my way of thinking I back down entirely and fret in a corner, hoping they don't think less of me now that we've disagreed. In fact, sometimes I even grovel at their feet, hoping they may impart on me some mercy and forget about what it is that I've said. I'm horribly afraid of debate, you guys. Everytime there's a debate a get a sick feeling in my tummy because I'm afraid the outcome may result unfavourably in people's feelings towards me.

    tcaud is one of the best examples of an exemplary LII on this forum. i don't know where in gods green earth you could get EIE from, but this just proves what Phaedrus and I have been saying for a while now

    Yes, to sersiously suggest that tcaudilllg is an EIE is a good example of the insanity that is now prevailing on this forum and has done so for a long time. It would be interesting (but a hell of a job) to investigate this process and its key elements. When did the forum start to go astray? Was it doomed from the beginning, or did something happened that changed its course? Who are most responsible for this decay in understanding of Socionics and the types? Who have been brainwashing others (and perhaps themselves) into believing in an incorrect version of Socionics?

    it has to be an information processing limitation. .. that their point of view doesn't allow them to take the necessary facts into consideration. rather,what they perceive is subject to false conclusions of how these impressions are relevant to the bigger picture .. that their mode of perception disallows them from seeing the picture as a whole at all, maybe .

    That's a possibility. Recall that the Right typically exhalts principle over logic: if a right-wing person knowledgeable in socionics has preconceptions about what types have which traits, then these principles of their own private typology will impede their capacity to understand what socionics is really about. The sole exception is if they are leading Ti or Te.

    Let's take the situation a step further, and observe that Augusta, like as not, was on the Left, not the Right. Is it any wonder that so many people on this forum, then, are ignoring Augusta as a source of information on socionics? And let us not dismiss the destructive influence of Dmitri Lytov, who has probably twisted our viewpoints of what the east considers socionics to be. Rick isn't guiltless in this regard, either. (though of course he did undertake to translate Augusta's work and thus, has our respect. And let's not beat around the bush: Dmitri has done a lot, too. I guess we ought to say that people who didn't really buy into Augusta shouldn't really be speculating about what socionics is apart from what the people who do buy into her say it is. Instead they should be working on more detailed type descriptions. That would help a lot; cultural manifestations of type would be revolutionary in terms of intellectual empowerment).

    Machintruc: yes, probably ISTj. Far more interested in concrete data than in general ideas. A funny detail is that my ISTj brother is stereotype promoting (even racistic) in a (solely! he is a good guy) jocular way just the way he is. It wouldn't surprise me at all if this is common in ISTjs.
    Tcaudilllg: I respect his self typing. Also his tendency to theoretical reasoning points to an NT type. That being said there have been some signs that point to ENFj. These being:

    - the fact that several of the people he has been at odds with (to the point of demonization in some cases) are frequently typed ISxp: Rocky, Dee, Jessica, Bionicgoat
    - this general description of ENFj, which could have been written specifically about him:
    Quote Originally Posted by socioniko.net ENFj

Beethoven's four notes—the theme of fate —sound like the theme of his life. He takes personal problems and addresses them on a global scale. Meanwhile he often also strives to give something back to mankind.
    - Gulenko's description (http://www.socionics.com/prof/enfj.htm) highlighting a characteristic appreciation for leadership and authority in ENFjs. Tcaudilllg has created entire theories on leadership. The topic clearly inspires him very strongly.
    - I rarely meet anyone to whom this description applies as strongly as to him; to give an example: he recently suggested that mothers could sense the political orientation of their unborn children (a mystical phenomenom if anything is; tcaudilllg being the only person I know coming from whom this kind of suggestion does not surprise me in the slightest):
    Quote Originally Posted by Gulenko's ENFj

    - tcaudilllg has asked the VI advice of a pair of Russian socionicists before. The result was ENFj.
    - just about all of tcaudilllg's theories are written in the form of narrations, which ENFjs are characteristically known for being talented at creating. We can question wether his writings are theories at all, instead of simply narrations on an abtruse topic. (see Gulenko's ENFj description, link above).
    - tcuadilllg is an extremely prolific contributor of theoretical material on this forum. His overproductive style points away from an energy-conserving Ij temperament. The sheer quantity and length of his materials raise the suggestion that they have not been created from a mindset that is strongly economic with energy. A google search of his name results several pages with activities of his on the internet.
    http://www.google.nl/search?hl=nl&cl...&start=10&sa=N

    Now, I have no trouble at all taking this data as signs that there is truth to tcaudilllg's claim that he has an ENFj "slave type". I'd be curious, though, as to how someone who rejects dual-types would view the information.

    I've got an ENFj gf and I can say with absolute certainty that we are NOT IDENTICALS.

    Anyone who denies dual-type theory is so grounded in their own misconceived principles that they can barely grasp socionics at all.

    Dual-type theory has its merits though I'm not in a position to confirm or deny it. What I am confident to say is that it is probably less complementary to Model A than your wikipedia article would claim, but not necessarily any less valid in the grand scheme of things.

    I also kind of suspect that, in your own dual-type theory, you may instead be an ENFj-INTj rather than an INTj-ENFj.
    I'm very logical but you see I have a strong sense of F. I'm drawn to it. I also make F the basis of my logic. That's what INTj-ENFj does. I can't offer much more than that right now because I'm still trying to refine a new understanding of type. For reference, I think Ms. Kensington is also INTj-ENFj.

    But let's hear your take: what is INTj-ENFj compared to ENFj-INTj? I will make this important point: I don't live in a world of theories; I live in a world of emotion. But I feel it is my duty to explain why people feel the emotions they do, and for that I need theory. People are ruled by their emotions; theory liberates them from emotion on the one hand, and purifies its pursuit on the other, rationalizing it. Today we do not live in such a world but that is the world I want to bring about.

    Given the right kind of information, it would probably very easy to proove that tcaudilllg is in fact an INTj. He is probably not outwardly expressive in the way an extrovert is in real life, or socially capable as a feeler would be. We do not have sufficient information to conclude these things, but tcuadilllg does. That is why his self-typing is very important in this case.

    is something that still doesn't sit well with me, though, as so far we have not had any reason to believe that conflict between types would exist "crossed" between master and slave type. Tcaudilllg has a clear repeating tendency to get in conflict with Si dominants, and this can not be explained by the fact that he is INTj.

    (the only person of those four who is not ISxP with extreme likelyhood would be Dee, the others have typed themselves as such and have never been suspected to be anything else)

    Not so, because I developed the "good relationship" aspect of the theory long before we met. We've got a good relationship because she's a liberal, and therefore I instinctively care for her.

    Here's something to know when you want to decide between LSI and LII: as you know LSI is an ST type, whereas LII is an NT type. Part of the traditions that user smilingeyes has established on this forum is that ST types are HALF-socially-open, whereas NT types are FULLY socially-closed. This is one principle that I have seen very strongly corroborated by my experiences. The typical NT attitude is one that lies detached from the environment, lurking in the shadows, whereas that of the ST is one engaged in whatever is going on around the person. Now what this means is not that the NT never affects his environment. What it means is that when an NT does affect his environment he does so fully of his own accord, not influenced by any sort of external authority or established way of doing things. An NT who is outside of his ordinary "lurking" mode affects his environment to the fullest possible effect. He makes the really big ripples, bigger than those that any ST could produce.

    So... ask yourself which of the following characterizes you better:
    - a person who is normally engaged in whatever is going on in the environment; simply furthering the causes that were naturally there, not challenging the "normal" way of doing things and working at whatever has been known to give a desired effect in the past.
    - a person who first lives in a detached mode, analyzing and mentally correcting the way things are being done around him, then showing his face and launching himself into the world; presenting the result of his thoughts: a supposed "ideal" way of acting that is better than anything that existed before.

    (one pitfall here is that the ISTp type is also known for a certain kind of "lurking-launching" behavior)

    In JUDGING types, an NT is a Result type (unfocussed), whereas an ST type is Process (focussed). This has to do with how, when a person is continually perfecting things, a better way of doing things that is found, disrupts any processes that are active because the current process needs to be aborted to make place for the new. So every time the NTj finds a new method, he needs to "reboot" his activities. The STj can maintain a constant state of focus (call it "blissful ignorance"; the STj employs the known method better than the NTj, but is unaware that there were better methods in the first place).

    See if that helps...

    As a general observation: you have things in common with user Tcaudilllg. If he goes back to calling himself an INTj-ENFj (which would restore my conviction that he is that type), I'd assess you to be either ISTj-ENTj or INTj-ENTj (ENTj instead of ENFj mainly because your "tough" attitude suggests double-T). If you want I can make some predictions as to your relation with some of the members on this forum based on that guess.

    I would have to disagree; with STs things are not always what they seem. Just b/c you see the crocodile it doesn't mean it doesn't still have an element of surprise. Also I think you are looking at process the wrong way. I am process so that I can improve the process itself and make it more efficient; it is not a mindless activity. I would expect a result type to ignore the process itself and simply strive for another end (even if that end is an improved process).

    Actually perhaps you are correct; I will have to consider the matter further. I believe that I have been at least INTp, INTj, and ISTj at various points in my life. I was probably best socially adapted as INTp. The j types are slow and much less specifically responsive. However I cannot live as INTp for extended periods of time b/c I feel like a slave to the circumstances and I am easily led/conditioned. As an ISTj my intuition runs rampant and I have trouble controlling it or else it is inaccessible; I am also less in tune with the meanings of things that do not interest me and with temporal discretion, but I can mobilize rather quickly (especially physically). As an INTj I grow lazy and too comfortable leaving me in a somewhat precarious physical condition, but perhaps I can overcome this deficiency with my wits if I am not sucked into the oblivion of -valuing. This is quite a predicament indeed. Thank you for bringing this to my attention, and I apologize for jumping to conclusions earlier.

I thought Huitzilopochtli was a shining example of LII when he first came on the forums, but if LSI makes more sense, which I personally don't see but it's not like I have read the arguments for it, well hey.
    You can find the argument @ http://www.the16types.info/vbulletin...203#post424203

    I'm working to create some new techniques for dual-type analysis. I suggest we try to use those instead of intuition for purposes of giving people adequate typings, at least until we get a better sense of how dual-type manifests.
