Mirage relations chart - is it correct or not?
I've spend time to read this socionics chart: http://www.socionics.com/rel/relcht.htm
But I've noticed something strange:
ENTp - INTp = ILL (Mirage/Illusionary relationship)
ESTp - ISFp = ILL (Mirage/Illusionary relationship)
... and so on for a couple of types,
so I got the rule for this ILL (Mirage/Illusionary relationship): second and last letter - the same, and the others are opposite.
Also, MBTI consider this pairing to be the best for romantic relationship (Kersey books), of course, for introvert types, j->p...
My question is: why Kersey the rule is not the same for all types?
Look here: ENFj - ISFj = ILL (Mirage/Illusionary relationship)... why so?
According the rule (first examples), ESFj should have ILL relationship with INTj!... but there is ISFj!!!
Please somebody inspect that chart and set things clear!
Thanks a lot! Any feedback will be much appreciated!
Mirage types have the same creative function as the dual, but a different base function.
ENTj/ISTj = Mirage/Illusionary
ENTj/ISFj = Dual
ENTp/INFp = Mirage/Illusionary
ENTp/ISFp = Dual
The table there has: ENTP - INTP = Contrary

if you're looking at this through the 4 dichotomies:
Duality = types are the same on Rationality-Irrationality (j/p), and opposite on the other 3 dichotomies
Contrary = types are opposite on Extraversion-Introversion (E/I), and the same on the other 3 dichotomies
Illusion (p types) = types are the same on Intuition-Sensing (N/S) and j/p, and opposite on the other 2 dichotomies
Illusion (j types) = types are the same on Logic-Ethics (T/F) and j/p, and opposite on the other 2 dichotomies
but i think if you want to understand what these relationships really imply, it's better to look at the functions involved, rather than the 4 dichotomies alone. in the case of Illusion relations, for example, the types involved have complementary 2nd functions (which satisfies each other's 6th functions), but non-complementary 1st functions. the fact that the types share complementary 2nd functions is what produces the "illusionary" effect, because each type is getting their 6th function satisfied, but not their 5th function (which is related to the 1st function). a Duality relation would satisfy both. this article on Illusion relations discusses how the functions come into play: http://wikisocion.org/en/index.php?title=Illusionary
Complementary IM elements/functions:
Ne and Si ( and )
Se and Ni ( and )
Fe and Ti ( and )
Te and Fi ( and )
also be careful about assuming the J/P switch for MBTI introverts into Socionics introverts. a lot of people who know Socionics would not assume that MBTI types can automatically be made equivalent to a Socionics type (though a few might agree). read this for more info: http://www.wikisocion.org/en/index.php?title=J/P_switch
welcome to the forum btw (:
