    Default Socionics is beautiful

    Hi everybody. One thing I've got to say:
    Socionics is BEAUTIFUL
    I've just noticed a lot of aversion and criticism of the theory of socionics itself, so I thought let's have a look at both sides.
    I think the trouble is people expect too much of it, in the sense that they try to extend its theoretical base to everyday trifles. And if it fails to explain something that actually it's not supposed to explain, than the first impulse is to blame it and sustain socionics is bullshit :/
    So please no criticism even if they are founded, deal? At least not in this thread =D

    For me I can say it's AMAZING how different people that never know of each other, from different places of the world, have actually so much in common, and I think this is where socionics started, as it attemps to explain that

    I am amazed, for example, how a bunch of people here - of course after reading a lot of their posts and I could make an image - actually so remarkably resemble each other with people I've met in reality.


    Aslo I'd like to ask the question just how much type influences us and where the personal decision starts?

    Just say whatever you think, any thoughts welcomed

    I think type goes to the point that it affects how we understand and manipulate information. It has an effect on our personality, but so do various other factors. Personality is a conglomoration of factors biological and environmental. Expecting any one factor to explain the bulk of personality is silliness.
    That faith makes blessed under certain circumstances, that blessedness does not make of a fixed idea a true idea, that faith moves no mountains but puts mountains where there are none: a quick walk through a madhouse enlightens one sufficiently about this. (A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything.) - Friedrich Nietzsche

    I love socionics. I can use it to effectively compensate my F disabilities. I just have to keep in mind it is just a substitute to real F And that people are more than types (myself included)

    I think socionics is dangerous. I now that most of the regular posters here think about it too much in their interpersonal relations, myself included.

    But sadly you are making a good point.

    Haha. You can try! But then again it is the combat itself that
    makes it fun for the ISTp so losing to a worthy adversary would
    only be an honor

    I am very glad you feel that way...
