This is an awesome little something I came across in my various adventures as the world's most beloved unpaid counsellor.
Here's some interesting points about PDI:
1) The base state is in controlled service to one of the first two "growth factors": antisocial self-service (biological impulse) and/or yielding to the status quo (peer pressure).
2) People who have godawful damn lives turn into the goddamn Batman, only not crazy.Dąbrowski observed that most people live their lives in a state of "primary or primitive integration" largely guided by biological impulses ("first factor") and/or by uncritical endorsement and adherence to social convention ("second factor").
3) Not everybody can grow. Not everyone is sensitive enough to have a tough life.Dąbrowski also described a group of people who display a different course: an individualized developmental pathway. These people break away from an automatic, rote, socialized view of life (which Dąbrowski called negative adjustment) and move into and through a series of personal disintegrations. Dąbrowski saw these disintegrations as a key element in the overall developmental process. Crises challenge our status quo and cause us to review our self, ideas, values, thoughts, ideals, etc.
Now, is this integrable with socionics? Is it at odds?
Any LIIs, please fly with me to Sweden and let's get married. I love your holographic thinking, and Viktor Gulenko is a sexy beast.
