    Default Reinin dichotomies --- typing with triples

    There are 15 Reinin dichotomies. Every dichotomy can be derived from 7 pairs of 2 other dichotomies. Example:
    aristocratic/democratic = carefree/farsighted*yielding/obstinate.
    This means that a democratic type can either be <farsighted and obstinate> or <yielding and carefree>. That's a triple or small cycle...

    Some Reinin triples are obviously useful not only for explaining behaviour but also for typing. Example:
    If a person seems to be introverted and rational (s)he
    1.) has to be static.
    2.) has to belong to the IJ-temperament.
    Those two ways of verifying the typing are probably better than thinking about introverted/extraverted and rational/irrational again and again. I really don't know why those triples are mentioned so rarely on this forum and not at all on wikisocion...

    The temperament triple
    introverted*rational*static = Balanced-stable
    extraverted*irational*static = Flexible-maneuvering
    introverted*irrational*dynamic = Receptive-adaptive
    extraverted*rational*dynamic = Linear-insistent

    The club triple
    intuitive*logical*democratic = Researchers
    sensing*ethical*democratic = Socials
    intuitive*ethical*aristocratic = Humanitarians
    sensing*logical*aristocratic = Pragmatists

    The quadra triple
    democratic*judicious*merry = Alpha
    aristocratic*decisive*merry = Beta
    democratic*decisive*serious = Gamma
    aristocratic*judicious*serious = Delta

    The thinking style triple
    static*negativist*result = Holographic
    dynamic*positivist*result = Vortex
    static*positivist*process = Cause-effect
    dynamic*negativist*process = Dialectical-algorithmic

    The romance style triple
    static*intuitive*judicious = Infantile
    dynamic*sensing*judicious = Caregiver
    static*sensing*decisive = Aggressor
    dynamic*intuitive*decisive = Victim

    The communication style triple
    extraverted*logical*yielding = Businesslike
    introverted*ethical*yielding = Sincere
    extraverted*ethical*obstinate = Passionate
    introverted*logical*obstinate = Coldblooded



    There are 35 triples. Others might be useful, too:

    farsighted * introverted = intuitive
    farsighted * logical = negativist
    farsighted * rational = judicious
    farsighted * obstinate = democratic
    farsighted * static = strategic
    farsighted * emotivist = asking
    farsighted * merry = result
    obstinate * introverted = logical
    obstinate * intuitive = negativist
    obstinate * rational = merry
    obstinate * static = emotivist
    obstinate * strategic = asking
    obstinate * judicious = result
    static * introverted = rational
    static * intuitive = judicious
    static * logical = merry
    static * democratic = asking
    static * negativist = result
    democratic * intuitive = logical
    democratic * introverted = negativist
    democratic * rational = result
    democratic * strategic = emotivist
    democratic * judicious = merry
    strategic * intuitive = rational
    strategic * introverted = judicious
    strategic * logical = result
    strategic * negativist = merry
    emotivist * logical = rational
    emotivist * introverted = merry
    emotivist * intuitive = result
    emotivist * negativist = judicious
    merry * intuitive = asking
    judicious * logical = asking
    negativist * rational = asking
    result * introverted = asking

    What about my favourite Reinin dichotomy, asking/declaring? Hasn't Victor Gulenko worked out any small groups about it...?



    static * democratic * asking = Alpha NT / Gamma SF
    Like to discuss...

    dynamic * aristocratic * asking = Beta NF / Delta ST
    Prefer smalltalk...

    dynamic * democratic * declaring = Alpha SF / Gamma NT
    Like to tell stories...

    static * aristocratic * declaring = Beta ST / Delta NF
    Prefer to explain issues...




    merry * intuitive * asking = Alpha NT / Beta NF
    Ask a lot of funny questions with allusions...

    serious * sensing * asking = Gamma SF / Delta ST
    Ask questions to get answers...

    merry * sensing * declaring = Alpha SF / Beta ST
    Like to tell a lot of funny stories or issues...

    serious * intuitive * declaring = Gamma NT / Delta NF
    Like to explain complicated theories...




    judicious * logical * asking = Alpha NT / Delta ST
    Prefer to analyze answers thoroughly...

    decisive * ethical * asking = Beta NF / Gamma SF
    Hear one answer and ask the next question...

    judicious * ethical * declaring = Alpha SF / Delta NF
    Offer funny or interesting information...

    decisive * logical * declaring = Beta ST / Gamma NT
    Offer useful information or instructions...

    Perhaps not... could be an opportunity for you!

    I like those, especially the last one. I think these tend to make sense.

    I thought the dichotomies are really interesting. The two that I didn't think about before are democratic vs. aristocratic and asking vs. declaring. I definitely do group and label people and I monologue and hate to be interrupted. However, unlike merry vs. serious, I am not a believer in objective truths; I'm a nihilist.

    I thought static vs. dynamic (I know, basic socionics concept, it still confuses me) and judicious vs. decisive were confusing, though.

    Temperament, club, quadra and romance style are used quite often on this forum. Thinking style has been covered somewhat (Labcoat makes sure of that)... communication style also makes sense, though I'm pretty sure we use that already in some form ("extraverted feeler", "introverted thinker").

    That answers your question as to why they are mentioned so rarely - they are used often, they just aren't referred to as "triples" very often.
