I went over to PersonalityCafe because it's one of the biggest forums about the Myers-Briggs. I've become a socionics 'convert,' and when I look at them, I feel like they are 'hopelessly lost' and they 'need to be saved.' They're struggling to work with a mess of logical contradictions and disorder, without using the tool of the intertype relations to help them figure out their types. They think that an ISTP's functions are TiSeNiFe, for instance, and as far as I understand, all introverts' functions are set up that way, with a reversal of the perceiving and judging functions, and the opposite in terms of extraversion/introversion than what they should be, and... it's a mess. Help! I'm not very good at evangelizing. I just want to tell them 'But wait! There's hope! Go here and read about socionics instead of wading through all this contradictory crap!'
If someone started teaching socionics in the United States, there would be an obstacle: the existing belief system. If, for instance, you put up a sign or an advertisement inviting people to learn about socionics, a system of personality types, a large number of people would say, 'But I already know my personality type - I took the Myers-Briggs - what else is there to know? Why should I learn some other "wrong" belief system?' You'd have to catch people who had never heard of any personality typing systems at all, rather than people who already know the Myers-Briggs.
