    I don't see why it's not, and I don't see why you think it's not. The human brain is a very malleable thing: given the circumstance (childhood experiences, religious beliefs, culture, etc), any type should be capable of doing anything.

    Augusta, the creator of Socionics. I am curious, where does your understanding of Socionics elements arise, if you consider everything malleable? Such radical malleability is, in fact, inconsistent with the original Socionics model - Model A, which classical Socionics uses.

    I don't see why it's not, and I don't see why you think it's not. The human brain is a very malleable thing: given the circumstance (childhood experiences, religious beliefs, culture, etc), any type should be capable of doing anything.
    The science of genetics has disproven that humans are born tabula rasa, and proves that some determinants of behavior like intelligence are to some degree genetic in nature.

    There's too much to argue here so I'll stick with the main points.

    Which anybody can do. I ask any and all members of this forum to raise their hands if they have not given a fuck about something at one point in your lives.

    Also I don't know what movie you're watching, but the Timon and Pumbaa world seems pretty damn relaxed: I imagine anybody would relax were they in a position of "no worries for the rest of your days".

    You're looking at the way small details and fail to look at the big picture of the film. He's pretty relaxed at the beginning of the film, before the part where Mufasa died. He in Hakuna Matata world his life is nothing but rest and relaxation. All other parts are just him filled with anxst or regret, so of course he won't be relaxed then.

    Quote Originally Posted by Aleksei View Post

    How are you so uninformed of what it means to be a human? All people are capable of remembering things, this is not type related in the least. If you have a brain and some semblance of emotion, you can have evocative memories.

    Furthermore, Simba wasn't simply "feeling nostalic," he was miserably guilty about what he believes he's done to his father.

    Quote Originally Posted by Aleksei View Post

    I still don't see how this isn't an 8 motivation.

    wtf yes they can. My dad is an 8w9 and he has no problem with confrontation in the 8 sense of the word. Regardless of the wing, that style of confrontation is such an E8 way to be.

    Hmm, this makes sense.

    My point precisely, thank you for agreeing with me. He was not looking for relaxation, he was merely looking for escape. And he found it. Ergo, Hakuna Matata is not type-related, and not a valid argument towards him being IEE.

    Also I don't know what movie you're watching, but the Timon and Pumbaa world seems pretty damn relaxed: I imagine anybody would relax were they in a position of "no worries for the rest of your days".
    That's Timon and Pumbaa. Both Si-valuing, and in fact both Si-subtype. We're talking about Simba here.

    You're looking at the way small details and fail to look at the big picture of the film. He's pretty relaxed at the beginning of the film, before the part where Mufasa died. He in Hakuna Matata world his life is nothing but rest and relaxation. All other parts are just him filled with anxst or regret, so of course he won't be relaxed then.
    Simba was most definitely not relaxed. Simba's attitude as a kid: WOOHOO! I'M GONNA BE KING, AND ZAZU WILL BE MY BITCH! LET'S GO RUSH INTO THE ELEPHANT GRAVEYARD, NALA!

    That is not relaxation. That is being high on cocaine.

    How are you so uninformed of what it means to be a human? All people are capable of remembering things, this is not type related in the least. If you have a brain and some semblance of emotion, you can have evocative memories.

    Furthermore, Simba wasn't simply "feeling nostalic," he was miserably guilty about what he believes he's done to his father.
    Ni:

    is associated with memory, uncertainty, state of mind, understanding trends or ongoing processes, incommunicability of subjective mental images, and a state of inertia. If types are likely to branch out and explore all possible concepts to find something interesting, types are likely to replay the conceptual associations that they have already made in their head. They may mentally replay things that have happened from their past or especially focus on the importance of concepts in memory, especially those relating to their personal history.
    Naturally all people have memory, and indeed all people have somewhere in their psyche, but some people prefer it -- and/or are more adept at it -- more than others. hence types are differentiated. An valuing type, racked with guilt and looking to escape it all as he was, would simply block the pain out and enjoy the moment, as Pumbaa and Timon were doing. He couldn't.

    I still don't see how this isn't an 8 motivation.
    wtf yes they can. My dad is an 8w9 and he has no problem with confrontation in the 8 sense of the word. Regardless of the wing, that style of confrontation is such an E8 way to be.
    Now who's ascribing nonexistent stereotypes to a type? Confrontation is not an exclusively 8 phenomenon, even if 8 is the most confrontational of all types. 8 is defined, nothing more and nothing less, by a desire to not be controlled. Mufasa did not seem to display such a desire, and did on the other hand gush forth about his perfect, beautiful kingdom.

    Actually you know what I think he's a 1w2.

    Fe doesn't mean "not being stuffy or uptight," again you're delving into stereotypes.
    Pray tell then, what is Fe?

    IPs are both dynamic and irrational, so they see reality as in continuous, gradual, often imperceptible change. An IP is soothed by this, seeing reality through his leading function. This leads to a relaxed inclination to take things as they come and adapt to them.
    As introverts, IPs tend to be relaxed and somewhat passive about initiating relationships with other people, mostly assuming that others will take the initiative.

    EJs are both dynamic and rational, so they see reality as in continuous, gradual, often imperceptible change. At the same time, an EJ has his own views of what reality "should" be. This inclines him to be quick to take action, normally using his leading function, in order to make sure things will remain, or become, as they should be, before change can get too far.
    As extroverts, EJs tend to feel that it is up to them to initiate contacts with other people, whether in the context of establishing or maintaining a relationship. They will not necessarily act on that, though, and sometimes wish others would take over this role.
    Scar:




    now, which of those descriptions does this resemble?

    Though mind, this is the single typing I care about least. I actually want Scar to be my type, because Scar is fucking awesome.

    As I said, if Mufasa is not a 2 or a 1, he is the healthiest 8w7 character ever to be created.

    He's probably a 1, though. He seems, as I said already, unconcerned with maintaining his own independence, and quite concerned with maintaining the delicate balance of the ecosystem of the pride -- with perfection.

    Memory and nostalgia have absolutely nothing to do with IEs.
    Augusta obviously disagrees. I agree with Augusta, who, um... created Socionics and is thus trustworthy about what the model entails.

    The link you posted explicitly correlates Ni with time perception. It references "roots in the past," And the correlation between events that follow each-other - so it'd easily perceive the connection between the past and the present. Which Simba was doing in that scene, perceiving how he lived then versus how he lived now.

    And, no, 8w7. There is nothing 9-ish about his behavior, at all.

    That is called "being a kid" and "being an extrovert." Physical relaxation and emotional relaxation are two very different things, I can't tell which one you're talking about.

    / valuers aren't repressive by nature. That's a difference of personality and not type. Again, please brush up what it means to be a normal human being.

    Then let's try the one Ashton linked on for size. Ni is time intuition -- it is thought processing intimately related to the passage of time, and is thus linked to a strengthened focus on foresight and memory. In a quiet moment of contemplation, Simba's memories came back connected to something his dad told him as a kid (pulling away from the motivation of merely enjoying the sensation of lying there under the stars).

    I never claimed that Hakuna Matata was about not giving a fuck; that's what you said. I don't hold what you say about Hakuna Matata to be true, so it's not a contradiction as far as I'm concerned.

    I still don't see how this is related to anything other than extroversion.

    Relating to something doesn't mean being an exact definition. That's like saying the number of cars you own is the same as yearly income simply due to them being "related to each other."

    The link explicitly states that time perception is Ni. Did you actually read it?
    What do these signs mean—, , etc.? Why cannot socionists use symbols Ne, Ni etc. as in MBTI? Just because they have somewhat different meaning. Socionics and MBTI, each in its own way, have slightly modified the original Jung's description of his 8 psychological types. For this reason, (Ne) is not exactly the same as Ne in MBTI.

    Just one example: in MBTI, Se (extraverted sensing) is associated with life pleasures, excitement etc. By contrast, the socionic function (extraverted sensing) is first and foremost associated with control and expansion of personal space (which sometimes can manifest in excessive aagression, but often also manifests in a capability of managing lots of people and things).

    For this reason, we consider comparison between MBTI types and socionic types by functions to be rather useless than useful.

    It doesn't state that Ni is all perception of time in general; any type is capable of this to some degree. Rather, Ni is a specific kind of time perception, one in which the passage of time is felt on a very personal and very subjective level.

    Also I would request that this thread be split off from where it stops talking about Lion King.
