    Default Quad-type... me?

    Would someone please tell me how to figure out my quad type? Better yet, could you please explain the theory to me, briefly?

    Thank you!

    I think it's you know, like, oh, say, "I'm an EIE-IEI-SEI-LII."

    WHATEVER THAT MEANS!!!

    So what DOES it mean?
    Quad type was a joke referencing dual type. It isn't actually followed through; it was just commentary on people's inability to agree on typings.

    Then someone explain dual typing for me(?) because I've asked but no one has answered.

    How do I get typed, figure out my dual type, etc.?
    Dual type is another theory that isn't part of mainstream socionics. It's just another subtype system, but it sells itself as more than that. In short, dual type posits a second "type" for a person that they have similarities to based on behavior.

    You can't be gamma that's for sure; because you don't use as often as they like to.

    Tests aren't very common in the Socionics typology, especially in English, and in any language that aren't reliable. Dual type is essentially an effort to capture both a person's "true" type and how they appear to and interact with others. (in more "technical" socionics terms, capture both their EM (energy metabolism) and IM (information metabolism))

    Check out your model number. It should be in "Q####" format.

    Dual-typing is Tcaud's thing, and Tcaud is confusing. Labcoat might understand it, as he discussed it with Tcaud in the old days... I'd tell you to go ask Tcaud, but I'm pretty sure that you've already done that (and gotten no answer). Hmm, actually I have some memories of Tcaud's wiki posts on the topic...

    Your dual-type describes what each of your functions think about. So if you use to think about -related things and keep your very stereotypically to its natural domain, then you'd be ESE-LSE. Supposedly that would also mean that you use on topics, on topics, on topics, etc. Basically, overlap your actual type on top of your secondary type; the function on top is the way you think, and the function on bottom is what you think about.

    I recall Tcaud typing Expat as LIE-ESE on the idea that Expat thought about in introspection (supposedly related to the id)... I was of the opinion that Expat was just contemplating his super-id values, but whatever.
