    Exclamation Socionics Test: Which description do you most relate to?

    1) Te is efficiency of an action, technical processes, the accomplishment of work, the efficient and prudent use of resources, factual accuracy, and the acquisition of relevant and useful information. Te understands the difference between effective and ineffective behavior when performing a procedure or accomplishing a task, and aspires to increase the frequency of productive outcomes within a system.

    2) Fe is responsible for the perception of an emotional state in an individual and the bodily and linguistic expression of emotions. Fe is able to influence others' emotional condition and to communicate its own, "infecting" others. Fe is used especially in generating and recognizing excitement and enthusiasm.

    3) Se is responsible for the perception, control, defense, and acquisition of space, territory, and control. It observes outward appearances, estimates whether forces are in alignment or conflict, and uses strength of will and power-based methods to achieve purposes. Se understands territory and physical aggression. It is also the function of contact and apprehension of qualia.

    4) Ne is responsible for understanding the essence (permanent but not obvious traits) of a thing, estimating the potential and latent capabilities for people and things, and visualizing the likely outcome of events. It is responsible for the sense of interest or boredom. Ne will speculate as to why an event occurs, but sees the specific event as static and unalterable.

    5) Ti is responsible for understanding logic and structure, categorizations, ordering and priorities, logical analysis and distinctions, logical explanations. Ti interprets information according to how it fits into a validating system. Ti is particularly aware of logical consistency and how concepts relate to each other in meaning and structure, independently of particular purposes.

    6) Fi is responsible for understanding the quality, nature, and proper maintenance of personal relations; makes moral judgments; and aspires to humanism and kindness. Fi has a strong understanding of the social hierarchy and how people feel about each other, their attitudes of like or dislike, enthrallment or disgust, repulsion or attraction, enmity or friendship.

    7) Si is responsible for perception of physical sensations; questions of comfort, coziness, and pleasure; and a sense of harmony and acclimation with one's environment (especially physical). Si understand how well a person or thing's behavior agrees with its nature as well as the differences between comfortable behaviors and positions and uncomfortable ones.

    8) Ni is responsible for the estimation of the passage of time, the understanding of a course of processes in time, and forecasting. Ni understands how things may change and evolve over time and throughout history. Ni is acutely aware of events that are occurring outside of the immediate perception of the moment, and sees events as part of a continuous flow. Ni perceives the possible ramifications of future events and notices ties to the past. Ni observes behavioral patterns and can assess a person's character.

    Step 2: optional

    For testing purposes, if you can't chose between 2 functions of the same ego block (like between Ni and Fe, or between Ne and Ti), then decide which of the super-ego functions you least relate to. You will relate more to your role function and least to your PoLR. (Then you can vote on the poll which is your real dominant function.) Simple enough.

    Ne I guess, but they all seem like pretty stereotypical descriptions of the IEs imo.

    Orly? I would hope people relate still to the very basic, mostly objective sense of their dominant information element description here, so they wouldn't have to gather tons of information to come to a simple conclusion, at least initially. That's how a Socionics test should be, anyway, especially for beginners.

    Fair enough, although I wouldn't call some of these "objective."

    Not as objective as something like "external dynamics of objects."

    I gotta say though, I like the idea of Fe "infecting" others. It seems like an apt descriptor to me lol.

    I am currently taking care of and focusing on the relationship between my mom and I and filtering for ideas to see how I can fulfill the idealized perception of where I feel we should be emotionally with my effort and investment.

    At the moment, I can't find myself relating to any of them. I'll try again when I'm more focused and not as sleep deprived.

    Well as much as you could agrue how good my logic is, I think the Fi could honestly be role (in that it looks real). I relate to what you say about Fi in a superficial way, most of the time analyzing, creating systematic constructs, and explaining how things are logically, or could be logically? This way or that way Ni is called the decisive type, but I'm telling you this, you aren't telling me. And now we're up a tree. But I think you'll find when I read the Fi description, this is how I see Fi people, and when I read the Ti description, it sounds more like what I do naturally. Yes I also use Fi. Maybe I'm more well rounded, but I don't honestly think Fi is my dominant function: I did consider it for a while and think yes, no, maybe so? Remember your strength of my typing was weak, so it didn't have reason to go to strong without thinking.

    people are most likely to notice their second function. Their primary function is stronger but to ordinary to stand out.

    Hmm I've heard this before, and relate to it. Ne does stand out more to me, and so I often think its my dominant function, but when I really look at my motives and what I really think about, what I'm more comfortable with too, it comes down to Ti. So that's why testmakers put other factors in there, to flush out the type: when its better to just think hard about what your dominant is and leave other factors like dichotomies out.

    I would find it a bit weird that you don't relate to any of these, because usually people come to a Socionics forum if they start to identify with the theory, and people who don't identify with the theory stay over at the MBTI place. What brings you here?

    Ni>Ne>Te I guess. The "Ni is responsible for the estimation of the passage of time" thing doesn't fit well though.

    I selected the number seven without reading the descriptions, because I like the number seven.

    I relate equally to Ti and Ni, but I was more aware of the Ti side prior to Socionics, so I figure I'd opt for thinking. Also the Ni description is poor.

    Two people mention this now. Really? This was one of my favorite descriptions here. It illustrates the Ni egos I know irl very clearly, and fits with how the description reads from aushra. (unless you're going with something more personalized?) Idk, I prefer it a lot.

    So I'm a Te subtype. I thought so. Apparently Airborne is a Si subtype. Good descriptions.

    Do people salute you even though you are not in the army? Then you are ESTJ-Te subtype.

    I don't see what's bad about them, I actually think they fit the people I've seen them associated with rather well, and they fit me well too. They might be a little more or less obvious for some people (I think that's what you're complaining about). No description is going to be perfect, but since Socionics is a system, a person should try to fit within the system and not try to manipulate it and create their own to where its noticeable that you're doing so . I also know that a lot of people have different descriptions for the IMs for some reason, like you for instance (and Dolphin actually fits with Fe in its more "normal" description ). The Fi one and Ni sound just fine to me. I don't think the Ti one sounds that much like a computer, or the Se one sounds like a controlling manipulator. Where do you get these weakly based impressions from? Yeah Ti types are kind of similar to their own personal computer, and might turn natural processes into computed processes, and Se types are often the more controlling people. I think that's obvious enough.

    That's true. I, for the longest time, thought I was ENTp, until I met and ENTp who talked way more then I did about ideas and how they fit into systems. Then I knew that I was more concerned about people and their well being first, then ideas, so it became clear from there on.

    Well they're not mine, but they are accepted by a lot more people which I think is a plus. These descriptions and similar ones have always been around.
