    Think in steps
    Define the function and understand the meanings then understand what information is searched and how the person thinks and produces output. That's a lot of steps I know.

    ILE - gets evaluated as comes in the door
    IEE - gets evaluated as comes in the door

    It's not possible, at least from dichotomy perspective.. I'm assuming you're talking about socionics+MBTI. Both have defined N S T and F roughly the same. S focusing on "what is", T making decisions based on objective factors, etc.

    Yeah I thought someone could have a MBTI type different from their socionics type?

    No that's a myth.

    Here's some proof why it's not possible and how this myth evolved.

    It's not possible since they use the same dichotomies. Sure since they are independantely developed each has it's own definitions which might result in somewhat different scores, but overall they are the same.

    Secondly the type descriptions are the same. Most clear example is ISTP. He's 'the mechanic' in both systems. For other types they have different names INTP is critic in socionics but wizard in mbti (or whatever name) this doesn't make him a different type.

    If names would make types different, how about all the different socionics streams. Sometimes intp is observer, sometimes critic.

    The myth has evolved because of the slightly different criteria and definitions, you could end up being more of a sensor in one system and more of intuitive in the other. This doesn't mean you are two types. This just means that one system has worse criteria.

    Also, people tend to believe mbti functions are not flawed, and therefor they talk about different functions for different types. But MBTI is heavy flawed. They should make MBTI version 2 and leave everything how it is, and correct the functions. Then MBTI is exactly socionics. But at this moment MBTI doesn't use functions to type people only dichotomies so it shouldn't be a problem.

    Well, Ganin wrote that the types might be mixed up for introverted types, if they are typed using functions on MBTI system, but that problem wouldn't arise for extraverted types.

    I have to say though, that reading decent MBTI descriptions, ie ones in MBTI books not ones on internet, that they do seem to be talking about same type descriptions on both systems.

    I suppose it can be complicated, but also simple, depending on how it's looked at.

    yep, fortunately MBTI doesn't use functions for typing. Only dichotomies or questionaires not related to functions but to types.

    That's probably why they never discovered their inconsistency. They simply don't use functions, they just stick them on a type afterwards, for fun.

    I think it's much easier to be mistyped in MBTI, yes. About types' descriptions similarity (or lack thereof in some cases), see about the middle of this article: Introduction into Socionics . These are based on Keirsey but they're much closer to MBTI.

    MBTI tests for different things, and most people arrive at their type through test and reading the sugary description.

    So my SEI friend mistyped as ENTP. She's read short ENTP description, and with it being so positive, easily identified. Forer effect taken to the extreme by lack of negative characteristics. Later she's typed as SEI in socionics and I think she's one. It works better for her than ENTP ever did.

    I suppose my point is that while assuming your MBTI type will be the same as your socionics type might work in most cases, it doesn't work the other way. It's much easier to mistype in MBTI.

    I took the MBTI years ago and scored my dual's type and got so confused, when I looked at the descriptions I noticed I was INFj.

    That's interesting. I'm not particularly bothered either way in terms of somehow 'proving' something, I am curious though, using the dichotomies, what would you say is different that you identify with J dichotomy in socionics and P dichotomy in MBTI (i'm assuming you identify with said dichotomies in socionics and MBTI, or perhaps not)?

    I'm INTp and INTP. I first thought I was INTj because of functions but it didn't work for me at all.

    @Cyclops: MBTI generally simplifies P/J to be chaos + procrastination vs order + getting things done. No wonder there's a lot of confusion. (Okay, so maybe the official definitions are different, but these work for tests and MBTI forums' discussions.)

    yes you are right. The difference in definitions is what makes comparing sometimes difficult or confusing.

    @labcoat
    Being two different types sounds as ridiculous to me as saying you are a male according to European standards and female to USA standards. You can only be one, period.

    My sister's husband is ILE and every time he takes an MBTI style test he gets ENFP. I don't know if he's ever taken one given by a professional. I think he's only taken the free online versions.

    What's he like? Nice. Fun. Quirky. Well-adjusted. And very ILE. He's getting his PhD in math.

    I consistently test INFJ by MBTI, and am IEE by socionics. The two systems are different in my view. The functions are defined differently.

    In MBTI, I'm an INFP with a very strong Intuitive preference (usually, I test all over the damn shop, but INFP pops up a lot). I really don't think I'm either of Beta or Delta; and I think regardless of which Alpha you think I am, that can be agreed upon, yes?

    I think INTP and INTJ got mixed up in MBTI. It makes sense since INTp, in terms of values, does show more J-like tendencies, and conversly INTj P-like tendency at least relative to each other. Many INTP descriptions sound like INTj and INTJ descriptions like INTp. INTPs are bit more quirky and analytical while INTJs are serious and mechanical from descriptions I remember.

    However, these are the only case. ISTJ and ISTj are clearly the same for example. This also may be why the J/P switch came about considering that many people that get deeply involved in typology are INTx.

    I have about 10 mbti books in my book-case, which easely distinct INTP from INTJ. For example calling the INTP 'the planner'. Well that sounds Ni to me.

    It are probably those crappy internet profiles written that make the confusion. They also make lots of use of functions. Something mbti books do not.

    100% agree. Labcoat is most likely INTP and INTp. I got this impression after reading this thread. Everything strikes me as INTp there...

    those freaks are amateurs who like to juggle around with functions. Somehow functions are very addictive to people. They are more sexy then dichotomies. You can see it on this forum too.

    Labcoat seems perfectly INTj-Ti to me. I don't talk the same way like him. We are totally different. so...

    I think it's just a sheer weakness of the functions in general. There isn't a type that has my function strengths and preferences according to tests I've done, I think.

    I think part of the reason for Si-base testing as N might be that you guys are Ne-DS, so you're naturally attracted to Ne-related things... and then there are MBTI tests, on which many N/S questions are basically "innovative or traditional", and also phrased like "do you prefer...".

    Wikisocion lists it as ENTj trait rather than INTx.

    To answer the OP, I would say take the personality traits that are assigned by MBTI (social, abstract-minded, emotional, spontaneous, etc) and apply that to a person who's thought processes are dominated by the chosen IEs (, , etc). For an ENFP NeTi, E gives them (and any type really) the gregariousness and maybe chattiness that Socionics does not claim for (all the objective IEs don't cause extroversion), the N might show that their / is rather prevalent, so it makes sense for the N to exist, the F could possibly show that they are dependent or wanting to use their often enough to dominate their personality, which is not completely hard to see since the is in their mobilizing function, while P says this person is spontaneous and flexible, and covers an aspect that doesn't exist directly in Socionics (like E/I). You could do the same thing for the ENTP NeFi, but with instead of . I could see this being more understandable if the NeTi was female and the NeFi was male, and they were relying on more gender appropriate personality traits for themselves, which would be their respective mobilizing IEs in this case.

    More likely than not this is the reason for inconsistent conversion.

    As far as I'm aware though, N T S and F are impossible to convert inconsistently even with only a basic understanding of both systems. I think understanding E/I J/P in both systems correctly should also result in consistent conversion, but there are a lot of poor descriptions of those dichotomies in MBTI.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see people thinking they have different E/I and J/P between systems, but different N T S or F should be clearly incorrect.

    There was an explanation I forgot why this switch doesn't happen for ESxx, but part of it is indeed the fact that the ESxp are really much random and procrastinating than ESxj. Extroverted Rationals are the most planned types, it's almost impossible that a MBTI typer to take them as P.
    There's no magic involved.
    It's not always that clear in either system though. Decisive/planned doesn't instantly mean you're Ni. Being random, doesn't necessarily make you irrational or P, and being planned doesn't necessarily make you rational or J. No single external trait equates to a dichotomy or type.

    You might argue that MBTI does type this way, but it isn't meant to be that simplistic. MBTI just isn't developed enough.

    Oh I understand what youre saying now. I've thought something similar for INTxs as I partially stated earlier. I'm not familiar enough with MBTI INFP or INFJ to comment.

    I get the impression that people sit maybe one or two tests on MBTI, look at a tiny internet description then decide that's their MBTI type.

    Then of course they can spend possibly years looking for their socionics type.

    So eventually they go, I am a different type in MBTI than on socionics, without actually thinking that they've quite likely mis-typed themselves on MBTI in first place (if they've got their socionics type right).

    a) dichotomies are defined somewhat differently in MBTI and socionics, especially P and J
    b) information elements play a key role in socionics, and socionics is about relations with others. in MBTI you can get along pretty well with people who have similar dichotomies, or pretty much any type, depending on the person.
    c) the descriptions emphasize different areas of personality. there are correlations, but saying that an MBTI INTP description totally sounds just like ILI in socionics, is only appealing to your impressions, is limiting the true difference that exists in time and their name, their creator, the creators intention, and you're probably confused about some of the actual scientific difference between the two theories
    d) assume that there is a high likeliness of one being the same type in both systems, but that its not a rule and doesn't need to be pressed on to others like it is the truth, when its obvious they're somewhat different. read the descriptions, and understand how you get to one type is different for one theory than it is the other. you can reason it out how they're both the same to you, and there's nothing wrong with that, since you're referencing your subjective impression of the theory and not the actual study of it, and you're probably more obsessed with the similarities than the differences.

    then it wouldn't be such a mystery. Understanding socionics doesn't mean understanding MBTI, visa versa. You understand one, you can misunderstand the other. You can understand both, and you'd be understanding two systems that do have some very close commonalities, and you'd be keeping an open mind to their differences too.
