I was watching the news report a few days ago and a piece of news caught my attention: some Russian astronauts (USA=Astronauts, Russia=Cosmonauts, PR China=Taikonauts) who are the crew for the next mission have been isolated for almost one year so that they get used to living in a closed space and get to know each other.
If Socionics is applied in this case, all the crew members should share the same quadra values: this would ease the difficult conditions they are probably undergoing. A Socionics conflict in outer space may be tricky.
From my point of view, I'd prefer to be launched with other alpha quadra members (I wouldn't mind sharing the rocket with Jenna Jameson, whichever her type is). Alpha quadra members should flourish in scientific missions.
I think this issue was discussed in this board years ago.
A conquer mission should involve a beta quadra team.
A mission related to build a new world should involve a delta quadra team.
A mission involving diplomacy with Aliens may need gamma quadra members.
I'll search for some links to the aforementioned mission.
