    Default New Type Representatives

    Traditionally, the Russians have assigned names to the types to make them more accessible and understandable, and to provide a sort of "mental picture" of what the type is like. This includes names like Balzac, Zhukov, Gorky, Gabin, etc. This is all well and good, but these names don't exactly strike vivid mental pictures into the minds of English-speakers in the West.

    So, we need to come up with our own. Submit your nominations in this thread for characters and people from popular culture to represent each type. After a while, we'll compile the nominations and make a poll to vote on them.

    Don't feel obligated to pick someone for each type; just nominate people you feel clearly exemplify their type.

    Here are my nominations.

    ILE: Doc Brown (Back to the Future)
    LII: Spock (Star Trek)
    ESE: Bill Cosby
    SEI: "The Dude" (The Big Lebowski)

    EIE: Martin Luther King Jr.

    ESI: Martha Stewart

    SLI: Chuck Norris or Red Green (do people know who Red Green is outside of Canada?)

    I worry that Doc Brown might be a bit "mad scientist" for ILE.

    Similarly, Chuck Norris doesn't really conjure up images of an SLI for me. He's more "that kung-fu action guy who does the roundhouse kicks". Cultural thing perhaps?

    Another option for ESE: Jackie Chan.

    I like Spock and The Dude.

    mad scientist is perfect for ILE though.

    Sort of. It feels like a shallow stereotype though.

    well yeah, if that's all it was then you're right. But Doc Brown wasn't necessarily a shallow character, that's just the part of him that stood out at first.

    One vote for Larry David as ILE, but I'm not sure if he counts as pop-culture.

    I'm not against Larry David at all, but is he well known enough?

    we should have male and female for each btw. (I'm against Alice for ILE because you would need to specify which Alice, and there isn't total consensus)

    For the Aussies: Kevin Rudd is a good EIE. SLI subtype.

    Every Australian politician is SLI subtype

    That's a good point -- the character needs to be not only a clear and widely-agreed upon example of the type, but also a widely known character. That's kind of the point here -- the Russian examples aren't widely enough known in English-speaking circles.

    I was actually thinking of that. If we get enough nominations of both genders, I'll set the poll up that way.

    I think that we can come up with a list that most over one will agree with, if we just work at it.

    Perhaps get each quadra to chip in with who best represents their quadra's types? Male and female.

    idk, we have a lot of different approaches to typing here that it might be hard to come to any actual consensus (Model A, Model X, Model B, Reinin, Jung, Smilexian, Maritisian and God knows what else )

    if we were making lists of people for each type, I would agree. But we just need to come up with one male and female for each. and I think that having some threshhold of agreeability will help (since perfect consensus of anything in socionics has been proven to be impossible by this point )

    Doc Brown, for instance, is somebody that I would consider settled for the above criteria. (also the Dude )

    This seems like it will be a popular thread. Maybe have a poll in each individual quadra forums for each type with like 10 or so names to see is the clear cut choice for that type?

    My suggestion that best describes ILI: Demetri Martin

    I think this is not a good idea because every one of those individuals has a bunch of traits that are not even type-related. This has all the potential for spreading some more misconceptions.

    imo that problem comes from people taking socionics typings too seriously.

    I also agree with Steve McQueen and Red Green being SLIs (just by VI alone). Never heard of them before, just looked em up.

    I'd even venture to say:

    Steve McQueen - Te-SLI
    Red Green - Si-SLI

    By VI anyway. Will have to watch a clip of each at some point.

    These are fine examples with no arguablity factor to people who understand Socionics, because they're obvious examples that should lead someone to grasp each type well, which is why I said if you don't agree then there's no reason to tell me. However it might be useful to provide more main examples for each type to make a good comparison. Karl Marx is perhaps the most famous INTj there is, or at least one of them, but if you have a better idea than Marx for the INTj representative then speak it.
