    Default What's my type?

    Hello!
    First of all: English isn't my native language, so if you spot any mistakes or any weird sentences, then I'm sorry, but I'll try to make this as understandable as possible.

    I have been studying MBTI for almost a year now, so I'm quite familiar with the functions. I heard about Socionics a while ago, I did some tests and stuff, but I really didn't delve into that. Lately I saw an article at PerC, which wrote about how good and accurate Socionics is and I became more interested in Socionics.
    It's quite confusing for me, because my MBTI is probably INFP while almost every time I do a test on Socionics type, I score INFp, which has opposite functions. Other popular outcomes are ISFp and INTj (which I probably am not, I don't believe I am a Thinking type). It would be really cool, if you could help me with typing myself, because I am quite confused. And please be patient with me, because I am very new to this and I don't understand many things yet, but I will learn :)

    A few things about me:
    I am an easy-going person.
    I am a romantic person.
    I like drawing, singing, cooking and dreaming.
    I hate sports.
    I tend to think about future a lot.
    I am a very playful person.
    I usually donít judge people, but when I do, I judge them by their personality (by ďwhat they areĒ) rather than what their hobbies are or what they do in their free time (doesn't really matter to me).
    I want people to feel comfortable around me.
    When Iím with another person, I want to know the line, which I canít cross. Itís individual for everyone. Like what sort of jokes are too stupid for this person, how close can I get without them feeling uncomfortable, what topics do they like to talk about etc. I adjust myself based on that.
    I am a humanitarian.
    I am interested in psychology and philosophy.
    I rather dream about doing something than really doing it.
    I procrastinate.
    I like mysterious things.
    I usually don't express my opinion, if it's different from what others think. If I do, then in a gentle manner.
    I'm quite stable emotionally.
    When I feel down, I tend to indulge in food (especially sweet). I also memorize all bad stuff that have happened to me and I feel useless.


    I'll edit the list if I remember something else. All questions are welcome :)

    The socionics functions are different and more accurate (even though they have the same names as MBTI). So you need to start studying all over from scratch.

    Read this: http://en.socionics.ru/index.php?opt...252&Itemid=189

    and this: http://socionics.us/theory/information.shtml

    and this: http://socionics.us/works/semantics.shtml
    (this last one is pretty good I think)

    Also keep in mind that there is a distinction between information elements (=functions in MBTI), for example , etc, and functions (=the "slot" in the psyche where the elements go in each type), for exampe: base, creative, role, suggestive etc..

    INFp, ISFp something like this.

    MBTI function organization is pretty messy, and makes converting from MBTI to Socionics unreliable.

    Socionics come to similar type conclusions as MBTI but the organization in socionics is Model A, and in my opinion. much more descriptive and accurate vs MBTI. It takes a while to grasp Model A however.

    Welcome to the forum, if you have any questions there will be helpful people to help answer them. Watch out for the trolls. ^_^

    Whoa, never thought so many people would answer to this Thank youu!

    Fireyed:
    You're INFp
    Yes, I thought about that too... Now I'm not sure Especially after I read this http://www.the16types.info/vbulletin...NFp-by-Beskova

    Yep, now that have read more about Socionics, I can totally see that it's more descriptive and accurate. It's more complicated too IMO, but maybe that's just because I learnt MBTI first and I'm not very familiar with Socionics yet.

    Thank you for your warm welcome!

    Welcome, Strawberry!

    First impression at a glance is ISFp. Then after looking for a minute, still think ISFp.

    Some reasons:

    You list descriptions of yourself in short-sentences, in a factual sense. Saying 'this is who I am, now how does this add up?' It seemed a very Si-style to me. And almost look for an intuitive to piece everything together.

    The username of Strawberry & the picture, the "Hello!", the friendly style of asking for something and keeping things pleasant, made me think Si & Fe-creative.

    Drawing, Singing, Cooking, etc., makes me think Fe-creative.

    Definitely not Ej temperament. When you mention "I procrastinate, I rather dream about doing something than really doing it, I like dreaming, etc.", that to me points more to Ip temperament in general.

    Indulging in food and only describing yourself on a literal, physical way is Si.

    "I also memorize all bad stuff that have happened to me" -> Si in general does this, actively cataloging and categorizing information and inputs for later recall.

    Welcome to the forums! Maybe ISFp would be a good place to start, and you could decide whether that ultimately fits you or not.

    Yes, yes, I totally agree about the Si-part.

    But Fe... I don't know, in my opinion I use Fi more. Then again, I have no idea, what is "Fe-creative". I did read some posts I found about it, but I still didn't really understand

    Huge thanks for the really informative post! It explained so much things to me

    Hey Strawberry,

    blackburry is evil. Don't listen to her. She's in Satan's Army. Kill her before she kills you; it's the only way.

    Hi blackburry!
    I lurked a while on these forums before registering, I also saw you there and I was thinking that it's such a cool coincidence, because my username at some places is "Strawburry". "Strawberry" wasn't taken on this site, so I decided to use that.

    Hi Tackk, she doesn't seem evil to me

    Hmm yes, I probably am ISFp then. I read some rational vs irrational posts and I can agree, I am irrational more.

    Tell me about your procrastination. Is it defiance to other people's force of will?

    Is it something else?

    If it is something else, is it because something is unsettled in your mind?

    Also tell me about your intuition. Is it something that you like to share with others? Is it something that you use to reach out into the world with?


    Is your intuition something that so strong that you decline to offer it up, as it is so right why should you share it?

    Seek to be understood and understand is the first thing that jumped up at me. In my case, I would just let people figure out that I'm not an English native speaker rather than establishing some sort of resonance as you try to do here; this I interpret to be a part of HA (hidden agenda).

    Easy going and relaxed points to some sort of Si activity; Si base, ego, demonstrative.

    Again, Si valuers tend to do a lot of this activity.

    More Si valuing stuff.

    Unwillingness to push physical boundaries are somewhat related to sensing objects. You tend to mention "comfort" and "feelings" a lot so this I gather is more in relation to Si.
