    Default Mbti roles and Socionics

    Does anyone know if the 8roles (archetypes) from Mbti carry over to Socionics? The trickster role for eg seems to correlate with polr, opposing with restrictive, etc

    Each cognitive function behaves different depending on which position / role it falls into in the Beebe Hierarchy.

    Function 1) Hero / Heroine Role

    Your strongest function will be in the hero / heroine role. This is how you "save the day." This is your dominant cognitive function.
    When life calls on you to save the day, you will call on, and depend on your dominant function.
    If you look at your life, at a time that you made the most progress, or you did something really significant, where you had to work hard at it, but you succeeded, it was your hero function doing the heavy lifting and saving the day for you.
    Function 2) Auxiliary / Supportive / Parent Role

    This is your second strongest function. It supports your Hero function. It's helpful to think that together the first two functions account for ~ 90% of your personality.
    It's called the "Parent" function because it's used in a helping, positive, supportive way.
    According to John Beebe, the Jungian Analyst who expanded Carl Jung's work of the 8 function model, when you reach out to help someone, it's your second function that you start with.
    Function 3) Tertiary / Relief Role

    Whichever function falls into the 3rd position, the "Relief Role," will be the one that is almost always weak and troublesome.
    It does not develop until mid life. Because of this it gets very little exercise and very little practice. Thus if you are called to use this function in your teens or mid twenties, you will fall flat on your face.
    You won't be able to count on this function as you do your top two functions.
    Psychologists suggest that you should get to know your tertiary function in a relaxed, playful, recreational, stress free manner. Thus it's called the "Relief" function.
    Function 4) Inferior / Aspirational Role

    Whichever function falls into the 4th position, will also be weak for you but it holds something special as the name "Aspirational" indicates.
    Whichever function falls here, describes what you aspire to.
    Yes, early on in life, using your 4th function is a source of weakness, maybe failure, maybe even shame. You probably can not perform the skills and tasks that are normally associated with this function.
    But you will find great satisfaction and maybe even breakthroughs, from periodically trying to exercise this function.
    In particular, the 4th function is considered the doorway to the unconscious. It's through using this function in a low pressure, low stress, friendly way that you can tap into the unconscious and all the energy and creativity that is stored there.
    So make sure you keeping trying to use your 4th function. It will help you become all you can be.
    Function 5) Opposing Role

    Your 5th function is used mainly as a defense. It's how you might become stubborn, uncooperative, unfriendly, rude, or obstructive.
    So look at the fifth function for your 4 letter type. See what it is all about, and ask yourself if that is not how you become defensive, stubborn etc.
    Function 6) Critical Parent Role

    We all have experienced a critical parent in our lives. It's when a parent tells you that you are doing something wrong or you are doing something poorly.
    The critical parent is a voice in your head that will cause you to criticize yourself and others.
    Whichever function falls into this position will determine the flavor of your self criticism.
    Function 7) The Trickster Role

    Which ever function falls into the 7th position will cause you grief throughout your life.
    The role of the trickster is to deceive and distort what you experience, or think you experience.
    Mike Shur the Assessment Specialist and personality type expert describes the 7th function as walking through the fun house at a carnival. This is the room full of mirrors that stretch you and distort you, making you taller and thinner than you really are.
    You will most often experience the 7th function when you are stressed or under pressure, or overly tired. You can not trust your perceptions or judgments when your 7th function is in charge.
    You will see things and believe things that are not real. You will put yourself or others in a double bind situation, which forces people to lose.
    People describe it as being in the grip of their 7th function.
    Function 8) Demonic / Transformative Role

    Which ever function falls into the 8th position describes how you are when you are the most destructive. Thus the term "Demonic Role."
    The 8th function can rarely also be transformative, propelling you to greater personal growth and maturity.
    But most often, when a situation calls for you to use your 8th function, it's not going to be pretty.

    For extroverts at least it seems like

    hero - base
    Supportive parent - creative
    relief - mobilising
    aspirational - suggestive
    opposing - restrictive
    critical parent -demonstrative
    Trickster - point of least resistance
    devilish - role

    Critical parent and opposing seems like they should be switched. You don't really value demonstrative, so it's unlikely you will self-criticize in the way they mention. Although it doesn't fit Ignoring great either...hm..

    I think Trickster fits Role better. I read somewhere that Role is used in attempt to a) conform with what's expected and b) manifest dual seeking.
    But over-using Role turns off your Base (both processes can't be active at once, at least on any deep level) and pushes your dual away. Instead of being energizing, you are drained.
    Also making decisions with your Role (2D) instead of Base (4D) will probably land you in completely wrong direction, where you look back and are like "da faq?"
    I promise if you keep searching for everything beautiful in this world, you will eventually become it.

    HERO - BASE FUNCTION

    Your strongest function will be in the hero / heroine role. This is how you "save the day." This is your dominant cognitive function.
    When life calls on you to save the day, you will call on, and depend on your dominant function.
    If you look at your life, at a time that you made the most progress, or you did something really significant, where you had to work hard at it, but you succeeded, it was your hero function doing the heavy lifting and saving the day for you.

    HERO - BASE FUNCTION

    Your strongest function will be in the hero / heroine role. This is how you "save the day." This is your dominant cognitive function.
    When life calls on you to save the day, you will call on, and depend on your dominant function.
    If you look at your life, at a time that you made the most progress, or you did something really significant, where you had to work hard at it, but you succeeded, it was your hero function doing the heavy lifting and saving the day for you.

    ESI is the "Hero" when it comes to
    subjective relationships between objects: feelings of attraction and repulsion, like and dislike, need and antipathy; morals, subjective judgments

    PARENT - CREATIVE FUNCTION

    This is your second strongest function. It supports your Hero function. It's helpful to think that together the first two functions account for ~ 90% of your personality.
    It's called the "Parent" function because it's used in a helping, positive, supportive way.
    According to John Beebe, the Jungian Analyst who expanded Carl Jung's work of the 8 function model, when you reach out to help someone, it's your second function that you start with.

    ESI parents others when it comes to
    outward traits of objects: form, shape, strength, power, readiness, willpower, mobilization, the location of objects in space

    RELIEF (Child) - MOBILIZING FUNCTION


    Whichever function falls into the 3rd position, the "Relief Role," will be the one that is almost always weak and troublesome.
    It does not develop until mid life. Because of this it gets very little exercise and very little practice. Thus if you are called to use this function in your teens or mid twenties, you will fall flat on your face.
    You won't be able to count on this function as you do your top two functions.
    Psychologists suggest that you should get to know your tertiary function in a relaxed, playful, recreational, stress free manner. Thus it's called the "Relief" function.

    ESI finds relief in using
    intangible connections between processes separated in time and space: sense of when things might happen, patterns of events, abstract representations of processes

    ASPIRATIONAL (Anima) - SUGGESTIVE FUNCTION

    Whichever function falls into the 4th position, will also be weak for you but it holds something special as the name "Aspirational" indicates.
    Whichever function falls here, describes what you aspire to.
    Yes, early on in life, using your 4th function is a source of weakness, maybe failure, maybe even shame. You probably can not perform the skills and tasks that are normally associated with this function.
    But you will find great satisfaction and maybe even breakthroughs, from periodically trying to exercise this function.
    In particular, the 4th function is considered the doorway to the unconscious. It's through using this function in a low pressure, low stress, friendly way that you can tap into the unconscious and all the energy and creativity that is stored there.
    So make sure you keeping trying to use your 4th function. It will help you become all you can be.

    ESI aspires to use
    external activity of objects: events (what, how, where), activity, behavior, algorithms

    OPPOSING - IGNORING FUNCTION

    Your 5th function is used mainly as a defense. It's how you might become stubborn, uncooperative, unfriendly, rude, or obstructive.
    So look at the fifth function for your 4 letter type. See what it is all about, and ask yourself if that is not how you become defensive, stubborn etc.

    ESI becomes stubborn about

    CRITICAL PARENT - DEMONSTRATIVE FUNCTION

    We all have experienced a critical parent in our lives. It's when a parent tells you that you are doing something wrong or you are doing something poorly.
    The critical parent is a voice in your head that will cause you to criticize yourself and others.
    Whichever function falls into this position will determine the flavor of your self criticism.

    ESI behaves like a critical parent regarding
    tangible connections between processes happening in one place and time: how events affect one's inner state; sensations, what one experiences physically

    TRICKSTER - POLR FUNCTION


    Which ever function falls into the 7th position will cause you grief throughout your life.
    The role of the trickster is to deceive and distort what you experience, or think you experience.
    Mike Shur the Assessment Specialist and personality type expert describes the 7th function as walking through the fun house at a carnival. This is the room full of mirrors that stretch you and distort you, making you taller and thinner than you really are.
    You will most often experience the 7th function when you are stressed or under pressure, or overly tired. You can not trust your perceptions or judgments when your 7th function is in charge.
    You will see things and believe things that are not real. You will put yourself or others in a double bind situation, which forces people to lose.

    Whichever function falls here, describes what you aspire to.
    Yes, early on in life, using your 4th function is a source of weakness, maybe failure, maybe even shame. You probably can not perform the skills and tasks that are normally associated with this function.
    But you will find great satisfaction and maybe even breakthroughs, from periodically trying to exercise this function.
    In particular, the 4th function is considered the doorway to the unconscious. It's through using this function in a low pressure, low stress, friendly way that you can tap into the unconscious and all the energy and creativity that is stored there.
    So make sure you keeping trying to use your 4th function. It will help you become all you can be.

    The critical parent is a voice in your head that will cause you to criticize yourself and others.
    Whichever function falls into this position will determine the flavor of your self criticism.

    intangible connections between processes separated in time and space: sense of when things might happen, patterns of events, abstract representations of processes
    TRICKSTER - POLR FUNCTION


    Which ever function falls into the 7th position will cause you grief throughout your life.
    The role of the trickster is to deceive and distort what you experience, or think you experience.
    Mike Shur the Assessment Specialist and personality type expert describes the 7th function as walking through the fun house at a carnival. This is the room full of mirrors that stretch you and distort you, making you taller and thinner than you really are.
    You will most often experience the 7th function when you are stressed or under pressure, or overly tired. You can not trust your perceptions or judgments when your 7th function is in charge.
    You will see things and believe things that are not real. You will put yourself or others in a double bind situation, which forces people to lose.
    People describe it as being in the grip of their 7th function.

    But most often, when a situation calls for you to use your 8th function, it's not going to be pretty.

    HERO - BASE FUNCTION

    Your strongest function will be in the hero / heroine role. This is how you "save the day." This is your dominant cognitive function.
    When life calls on you to save the day, you will call on, and depend on your dominant function.
    If you look at your life, at a time that you made the most progress, or you did something really significant, where you had to work hard at it, but you succeeded, it was your hero function doing the heavy lifting and saving the day for you.

    LSE is the "Hero" when it comes to
    external activity of objects: events (what, how, where), activity, behavior, algorithms

    PARENT - CREATIVE FUNCTION

    This is your second strongest function. It supports your Hero function. It's helpful to think that together the first two functions account for ~ 90% of your personality.
    It's called the "Parent" function because it's used in a helping, positive, supportive way.
    According to John Beebe, the Jungian Analyst who expanded Carl Jung's work of the 8 function model, when you reach out to help someone, it's your second function that you start with.

    LSE parents others when it comes to
    tangible connections between processes happening in one place and time: how events affect one's inner state; sensations, what one experiences physically

    RELIEF (Child) - MOBILIZING FUNCTION


    Whichever function falls into the 3rd position, the "Relief Role," will be the one that is almost always weak and troublesome.
    It does not develop until mid life. Because of this it gets very little exercise and very little practice. Thus if you are called to use this function in your teens or mid twenties, you will fall flat on your face.
    You won't be able to count on this function as you do your top two functions.
    Psychologists suggest that you should get to know your tertiary function in a relaxed, playful, recreational, stress free manner. Thus it's called the "Relief" function.

    LSE finds relief in using
    potentiality of objects: inherent possibilities, purpose, abilities, talents, content, values
