    Default Site-wide notice for people coming from MBTI, Keirsey, JCF

    2) Socionics types are not related to MBTI through a J/P switch for introverts. That works only if you are defining types according to ego functional ordering and assuming that Socionics functions = MBTI functions. That is however not helpful to find your true type, either in Socionics or MBTI.

    BUT


    The dichotomous types carry over from those systems to Socionics. If you were an 'actual' XXXX, in Socionics your theoretical type is still XXXx(but because of erroneous typings, faulty tests and general difficulties your type may be totally different).

    This is something that people don't usually talk about and get straightened out as they cross over to Socionics and they end up representing the Quasi/XXXy of their actual type. For example, if you were consistently typed as ESFP(Extraverted, Sensing, Perceiving) or INTJ(Introverted, Intuitive, Judging) in MBTI, you would assume ESFp/SEE or INTj/LII in Socionics.

    Still, keep in mind the above quote - that, in reality, and not theory, your type could still be inaccurate, but as for theory, type translates according to what I've demonstrated.

    Your previously perceived MBTI type is not your socionics type.
    Your newly found socionics type IS your TRUE MBTI type.

    Extraversion is extraversion is extraversion.
    Introversion is introversion is introversion.
    Sensing is sensing is sensing.
    Intuitive is intuitive is intuitive.
    Thinking is thinking is thinking
    Feeling is feeling is feeling.
    Rationality is rationality is rationality.
    Irrationality is irrationality is irrationality.
    That is all.

    Even better.

    Extraversion is extraversion is extraversion.
    Introversion is introversion is introversion.
    Sensing is sensing is sensing.
    Intuitive is intuitive is intuitive.
    Thinking is thinking is thinking
    Feeling is feeling is feeling.
    Rationality is rationality is rationality.
    Irrationality is irrationality is irrationality.
    That is all.
    This too, much more straightforward.

    All the PerNites already know about Socionics.
    Know I'm mistyped?


    Why I am now.
    Why I was , once.

It's necessary to understand Socionics functions also independently from Jung.
    This is incredibly relevant atm
