What great lessons have you learned since discovering Socionics?
I have changed many of my rigid conceptions about what is needed to help people. Before knowing Socionics, I thought helping people was as simple as 1. Finding the problem and 2. offering an appropriate solution. I know, very simple, but I was sure that as long as people were honest that solutions could be found. I now believe and see that people sometimes don't know what their problem is and sometimes is buried in the subconscious and unaware to the individual.
I've also been open to Freudian psychology as possible helpful therapy to perceptual types as opposed to more Jungian therapy for conceptual (even though this might be a conceptualization of me to do - again I'm categorizing my understanding of what might help for who).
I'm much more relaxed about letting people come to me for help as opposed to overextending myself to help them first when I sense a need for it.
I understand others fears better, especially phobias and how they get engrained in the individual and how difficult it is for them to let go of certain neurosis.
