I don't know very much about Socionics,
but what I do know is that there are supposedly 8 functions,
thus there are 8 ways to order the 8 functions.
Thus, why are there not 64 types?
Types are determined by the leading function and the creative function,
but for a given leading function there are only 2 possible corresponding types. Why?
For a given leading function and creative function there exist 1 type.
Thus for someone with their first two functions as NiTe,
there is only one possible order of the remaining functions?
Namely, Ni Te Si Fe Se Fi Ti Ne. Why is, Ni Te Se Fi Ti Ne Si Fe, not possible?
Also, why is it not possible to have a leading function of Ni and a creative function of Ne?
As I learn more about Socionics, the more it seems like a quack theory.
I think I am going to stick to physics.
