    Default Poll: Functions by Ekaterina Filatova

    I just got the book, Understanding the People Around You: An Introduction to Socionics by Ekaterina Filatova. According to the book, "these are the general principles that guide the consciousness of the individual belonging to a certain psychological type."

    For the poll, please choose the letter of the 1st of the general principles that you agree with most.
    If you'd like, you can post your second choice and even guess what functions they are according to the book.

    Ok, here they are:

    A: Reality comes first. In order to survive, humans have to work efficiently, producing material profit. The only value of an idea is the possibility of it's realization.

    B: Everything in the world must comply with a certain order and system. This is the core of life on which everything else relies; if it is taken out, everything else collapses. It is crucial to understand this system, to develop and improve it, and to find everyone's place in it.

    C: All actions are influenced by emotions such as happiness, anger, grief, depression, etc. Emotions dictate everything a person does. Due to this, controlling one's own emotions and those of the others are very important.

    D: A normal life requires harmony in human relation. The most important thing is to determine the ideals of human life and human relationships. The norms of ethics and morals are crucial here. Actual relations with people must agree with these ideals.

    E: Life is a constant battle, full of vigorous action. It is vital to train your will and tone of your body in order to be ready for immediate response and prevail in a critical situation.

    F: The main condition for psychological equilibrium is balance, contentedness, and harmony in everything that constitutes a person's surroundings. For a normal life, it is extremely important to have equally good physical health and perception of beauty, comfort, and content.

    G: The most interesting thing in life is to find something new and exciting, discover a fresh, appealing opportunity, meet an interesting new person, or conceive an unusual project. The world is full of mysteries and secrets that have yet to be discovered.

    H:
    The main value in the world is the infinite and abundant reign of personal imagination. This imagination will never grow boring because with its help, new ideas, suggestions, and images appear so magically and easily. Imagination makes it possible to delve into the darkness of the past and the mist of the distant future, to grasp the world in its entirety, to capture the dynamics and tendencies of main events, and to predict the final result.

    This confirms it: publishing type theory will make me rich.

    All of those descriptions are predictable and boring, so I chose none of them.

    I picked D very quickly and surely. My second choice on that list is F.

    __________________
    P.S. I see being IEE I should have picked "H". That is not how I would proritize important life principles. The things in H are interesting, yes, but not what is important in life. I take a particular interest in H things that serve D and F....

    LIE in disguise?

    Not too fond of the descriptions myself, though.

    CEGH, in that order
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    All of the above depending on the area.

    These have little to do with me, and everything to do with socioeconomic classes and subsects of society that people find themselves in.
