    Default Socionics Eysenck Stability

    Is there a correlation between stability-instability of Eysenck's theory and Socionics Rationality/Irrationality?

Activation can be measured by heart rate, blood pressure, cold hands, sweating and muscular tension (especially in the forehead). Neurotic people, who have low activation thresholds, and unable to inhibit or control their emotional reactions, experience negative affect (fight-or-flight) in the face of very minor stressors - they are easily nervous or upset. Emotionally stable people, who have high activation thresholds and good emotional control, experience negative affect only in the face of very major stressors - they are calm and collected under pressure.
    Not even close. Being base Se, Si, Ne, or Ni doesn't mean that one is neurotic, depressed, or anxious. Jung's dichotomies are meant to be value-neutral.

    If anything, I find more stable those individuals whose subtype is Dominant or Normalizing and more unstable to Creatives and Harmonizing subtypes. Therefore, Dominant Irrationals (N-SLE, for instance) are more stable than Creative rationals (H-EIE, for instance), IMO.
