    Default Type changing is fundamentally quite a teenage thing to do

    Because you're discovering more about your identity, what you think is your identity and what you want your identity to be, you're more prone to changing types when you're a teenager (in any system, not just socionics).

    Not all type changing follows this trend. If you change your type through reasoned consideration after gaining a more thorough understanding of socionics, I wouldn't lump this change in with the others. But most changes aren't like this.
    Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.

    Yeah, man. Imagine the Cosmopolitan magazine "how to change your type and your eyelashes at the same time" and "how to make a blowjob without becoming the dual of your crush"

    ILE "Searcher"
    Socionics: ENTp
    DCNH: Dominant --> perhaps Normalizing
    Enneagram: 7w6 "Enthusiast"
    MBTI: ENTJ "Field Marshall" or ENTP "Inventor"
    Astrological sign: Aquarius

    like FDG pointed out, attributing type changing to the young reflects thinking in stereotypes a bit. reflects Se-Ti-Ne thought process. direct observation and experience feeding logical structural conclusion that leads to a conventional interpretation. Ne role.

    I'm sorry, I just don't know how you can possibly doubt what I said, those who did. Why else would you type change apart from those two reasons?

    Who changed WHAT?

    Expectation that the system will work flawlessly and will have no gaps, rejection of the whole system if certain flaws are found in it.
