With my bacculaureate all but finished (it will be by winter), I am ready to begin leading the entry of socionics into the mainstream. My strategy is as follows: I'm going to prepare a paper, publish it in a journal, and gauge the psychology community's reception to it. I'm in no hurry to write the paper... I would prefer that it were a collaborative enterprise with many signatories and contributors. The paper will be submitted to one of the analytic psychology journals, perhaps one with a more modest reputation. Obviously if the modest credentials of the authors are given more weight than the substance, that's a setback we would like to avoid. A poll I saw on one of the major journal sites surveyed the academic community's opinions on the stringency of editor requirements for a journal. By a wide margin, the community agreed that the requirements should be in proportion to the reputation of the journal.
My topic for the main paper will be to integrate Brian P. Mitchell's types with the sociotypes. I do not intend to half-ass it: it will be an exceptional treatise on par with foundational works of the past. It will be long... maybe as much as 30-40 pages. I will briefly touch on the EM types... true understanding of the nature of the 2nd type requires reference to Mitchell's types.
