I think most societies, especially lower tech societies, need lots of sensors. Meyers/Briggs is pretty much set up with the assumption that sensors are commonplace (muggles) and that the intuitives are an elite. I do not know if Socionics has this presumption, nor if it has any data about type distribution.
To put aside Meyers Briggs anti-sensor bias, what if a whole quartas are more common in the population? Like one outnumbering the other 3 quarta? Also, what if some quartas are not balanced – like having too many of one type – should not that weaken the quarta by leaving the over represented type without enough duals / activators / mirrors for maximum health?
How would the world be if the 16 socionic types had exactly even statistical distribution? As in each one of us existed as 6.25% of the population?
I think it would make finding relationships easier. I think morale would be higher. But it would certainly change the distribution of skill sets. Today, power (should be) found in the rarer socionic types. The rare ones present a chokehold in the “distribution” of information – and so they can leverage that into something that they desire – pay, fame, glory, popularity or what not.
What do ya think?
