    Post A new Perspective on Dichotomies in Socionics - Pyramid Diagrams, Draft

    pyramid diagram.png

    I want to emphasis that this is pure classical socionics. I have not added anything new to the theory. These diagrams are simply a tool for understanding Model A, or any other similar model.

    I invented these diagrams so the average person can use the dichotomy structure correctly. I'm posting this here to see if it make sense so far and I'll make changes based of your feedback.

    I have completed the first section, and am currently working on section 2.

    Any suggestions appreciated!

    Article Draft:

    I have also created an interactive excel program if you would like a hands on demonstration how these concepts work. Please download it and open in excel so it can work properly.

    Thank your for your post, I think the diagram pretty nicely encapsulate the relational structure of the reinin dichotomies and how they are connected to each other. I can promote this in viewpoints if you wish?

    Glad you liked it. Feel free to post this where ever you want. The more people who understand socionics, the better.

    Do you think this is a good enough basis to go into more complex topics?

    I'm not sure I understand all of it but some of the things are very interesting to analyze. You've put a lot of work into this so I should put the same work to understand it.

    I probably will need to ask some questions about this as I get into it. Some parts of it where you get into typing was interesting but not sure if it helped explain the structure, more application?

    I don't visualize the same way as you do but I see something interesting in the way this is being visualized.

    You spend a lot of time explaining how you came to these conclusions but I'm trying to grasp what the pyramid represents.

    Maybe when I see your multiple pyramid write up I can understand.

    Also your ENTP notation is arbitrary, but what does this pyramid represent, and what CAN it represent and how to do it. Can it represent the type? Does it represent model a relations in a "space of" all possible types? If so then does some point in this pyramid represent a type?

    I'm not very math saavy but these are things I'm getting from what you've written.

    I do think what you've written is thought provoking and attractive, and I hope I'm not totally confused.

    I went through most of it. Is there a way to say, plug in different types by default to see what out of two different types one is to choose from? For me this would be INTj and ISTj, so same leading function.

    I love it.

    having the four main variables map out to four dimensions is very intuitive to me.

    I like being able to look at a line and think: "Ahh so the combination of Extroverted/Introverted + Rational/Irrational is what makes Static/Dynamic (and by flipping one of the dimensions you go from static to dynamic and by switching both you just go back to the same". It's not "new" to me in the sense that I know these things, but I usually have to go back to the dichotomies themselves to figure out how they work. This encapsulates a lot of information in a very easy format.

    What would be the next step from my perspective is to make a web-tool that allows you to flip the variables into their opposites dynamically so you can just "click" you way through the socion basically.

    That would allow for a "ceteris paribus" approach of experimenting while keeping the overview intact \


    Edit:

    and then use highlighting within that 3d model to show the groups and lower level dichotomies like you did in the end of the article.

    Making it an educational tool instead of a document would probably do two things:
    1. make it much more likely to go viral (better marketing) 2. make it much more likely to get a longer exposure (play is easier then reading).

    I haven't read her stuff, but from the pyramid I gather you can make any type into the pyramid by switching the main dimensions (which I'm sure you have seen already).
    So the thing can represent the entire socion, but not at the same time.

    I think it's basically the four letter notation (or three letter notation) but then optimised for visually oriented people (or maybe HP-cog although op is IEI so....)

    I think what you are asking is if there is a way to compare two types? Yes there is, here is a comparison of LII and LSI. This is the basics, let me know if you want to see more.

    Bottom right are all eight dichotomies you must be to have introverted logic as your base. The other pyramids on the bottom center and left are the eight dichotomies that are different for each type. You are either all of one or the other. If you actually want to determine your type based on these, check out the 2003 reinin dichotomy study.

    You are right, the ENTP notation is arbitrary, but it is the standard established by Reinin himself in his mathematics and is standard practice for all socionics. This is already complicated enough, so let's go with it for now, but, you can redefine the system to have any type as the base type, meaning each corresponding dichotomy trait for that type is now the positive one.

    What can it represent? Pretty much any system in socionics because everything was made with the same logic in mind. Specifically, the pyramid represent the abelian group Z2^4 (Z2 x Z2 x Z2 x Z2). But I don't like talking about the math because it is unnecessary and it tends to turn people off to the actual idea.

    The image in the original post is a space showing all possible types, but a single type can be represented by defining the charge for each point (check out the post I just did for QuickTwist to see an example). For each type, all the small groups will have either 1 or 3 positive traits. They will look like the fano planes for the eight information elements and functions in the paper, except colored and 3d.

    Thanks for the compliment, I put a lot of work into the visuals so it would make it easier for people to get into such an intense subject ^u^

    OMG, thank you, this is brilliant!

    OK so basically how this works is you take a commonality as the center and work off that, right?

    Thanks so much! I tried really hard to make it understandable and I still am not sure if I succeed.

    An interactive tool is the goal. My vision is to have an online celebrity typing tool that can analyze everyone's aggregate opinion and provide a framework for pinpoint debates. Also to develop a standardize methodology that could one day become a test. I've taken a C# and C++ programming class and for my final I made a working test with the error correction I described. If you know anyone who can help me make a website with users, a database as well as 3d graphics, I'm serious about making this thing. Send them my way please.

    My short term goal is to finish this paper and then send it to Gulenko and Reinin, who both seem interested in this concept. If it is academic enough, I'd love to have it published in a journal.

    You could look at it like that.Since this is a system, you can isolate parts to focus on them, but remember, everything is happening at once and everything is dependent on everything else. This is every single socionics concept ever thought up in a single diagram. It is like a Rosetta stone because it shows how to translate one idea into another. Which specific part or property you want to use it up to you.

    I don't think the concept is hard to understand, meaning knowing that everything affects something else, but it is difficult to see the detailed aspects of these differences. I don't know the dichotomies very well so I am just giving you the benefit of the doubt that you did it correctly. I can see where Mu is coming from as well. Its one of those things that if you take on faith that it works, it works, if you don't its going to take some time to understand. As I see it.

    This is my delima - I can either write a popular paper that is easy to understand but not very technical, or I can use mathimatical proofs to prove this not only works but it is a mathematical fact. I've been trying to write this damn thing for over a year, but I finally got closure when I talked to Reinin and Gulenko and they both said that they don't know the math, so I decided to write a popular paper and trust they will see the truth in it. I was thinking of including annotated proofs in the appendix, but it is a low priority now.

    The basic flow of the proofs would be:
    Prove the reinin dichotomies are abelian groups
    Use the "fundamental theorem of abelian groups" to turn the abelian group into the internal direct product of Z2 cyclic groups
    Show the order of this group is Z2^4
    Show that is Isomorphic to the pyramid diagram
    Use this property to project each trait onto the diagram to create a type of block design called a steiner system
    Show the meaning of each subgroup

    But see, even though I just proved everything to you, you still have to take my word for it, because you need to know some high level math to evaluate my contructions hahahaha. I'd rather not confuse people.

    Do both, the universe needs stuff like this out there. I mean unless you really don't want to - I could understand that too, but by God it would be great knowing there was a proof about this out there somewhere.

    @sindri, There is only one other person I know of (with my very limited knowledge) who came up with mathematical equation to prove human behavior and that was John Nash, and he ended up getting a Nobel Peace Prize. You are in good company.

    Ok, cool, I wasn't criticizing with the ENTP being arbitrary btw, just wanted to understand the representation without any confusion on my part.

    I have some more question and comments. I've always seen information preference typing as a matrix of traits(whatever) for which the solution is the type. This can apply to a empirical model as well not just socionics. Most big data marketing categorize people by some kind of single value decomposition which solves matrixs for any number of traits.
    From what I understand a ableian group is just a special kind of matrix. This is essentially the same sort of technique you're proposing some sort of matrix solving technique.

    There's a few directions this can be taken which can,

    A. Guess at a type based on observed traits
    B. Check type for accuracy
    C. Derive additional traits

    There's a few ways to do this.

    Solve the Matrix to guess the type, then derive reinin from type and check this against traits

    So Traits -> Type -> Reinin -> Parity check, I think this is close to your methodology?

    This is pretty close to the way I see this occurring.

    However, with enough data you can do something else too, which is find clusters of traits that arise in the data that we would need for the above method because you wouldn't really know what traits are applied to reinin.

    So Traits -> Type -> Find traits clusters(should match Reinin)

    The way I look at a socionics is that it presents a plausible solution to information precedence so this would be solution of some big data analysis where you would have type trait clusters and reinin trait clusters.

    FWIW, you would not need to know what type these individual are or what even the data represents initially, you could do that by manually looking at the traits and associating with the sociotype.

    Any big data analysis should produce some sort of type and sub clusters of dichotomies that matches Model A and Reinin Dichotomies. I think if a system can be created to analyze traits and create something that's close to socionics model(maybe not possible to be perfect because measurable traits are going to be likely behavior or self reporting) and then empirical out of this system can be analyzed for problems(which it will have) and inaccuracies.

    I don't have a deep knowledge of the maths involved but you might so you might help me correct any understanding/misunderstanding I might have.

    @mu4 i think you have the basic idea correct but the order is more flexible.

    Once you have more than one dichotomy, you can begin to do a parity check. I see it as a dialectic process where the goal is to increase confidence and the problem becomes more complex as you go.

    In my paper, all I did was solve for type and then fill in the remaining dichotomies to save space, but you can calculate each point one by one.

    Basically these are the subgroups that I will get into later in the paper. I have a lot more to write about this topic.

    # of independent dichotomies # of dependent dichotomies in system that can be used for a parity check total # of dichotomies in system, excluding the identity element (points) total # of small groups in system (lines) total # of dyad subspaces in system (surfaces) number of possible types
    1 0 1 0 0 8
    2 1 3 1 0 4
    3 4 7 7 1 2
    4 11 15 35 15 1

    Great stuff! I love this kind of mathematical analysis. I assume the 16th "null dichotomy" is need in order to match the power set of the original Jungian dichotomies. I'd love to see a more elegant way of describing it though.

    I wouldn't quite go that far. For example, when it comes to kindred, look-alike, semi-duality and mirage relations, we don't classify them by traits but rather by functional equivalence in Model A.

    You don't know how happy it makes me to find a kindred spirit.

    Even those relations can be represented with dichotomies if rationality is taken into account (the dichotomies that describe a rational kindred pair is the same the describe an irrational business pair, ect). The only thing off the top of my head that cannot be represented as dichotomies is information flow.

    In general, I think that dichotomies are complementary to a model. Even if intertype relationships can be understood with dichotomies, the information element projection in model A is much more useful.

    @sindri,

    I have been debating my type and have some info on where I would classify myself.

    From LII I am:

    Intuitive
    Democratic
    Strategic
    Farsighted
    Judicious
    Results
    Asking


    From LSI I am:

    Declaring

    For both I can't decide:

    Positivist/Negativist

    Gereral traits I share with both:

    Introvert
    Merry
    Rational
    Logical

    General traits I am not:

    Emotivest

    So all the traits I have are:

    Introvert
    Intuitive
    Logical
    Rational

    Static
    Yielding
    Democratic
    Strategic
    Constructivist
    Farsighted

    Merry
    Judicious
    Results

    Declaring

    And I cannot decide:

    Positivist/Negativist


    What would that make me?

    Based on these dichotomies, you are most likely LII
    QuickTwist Pyramid Analysis.png
    Here are your relative dichotomies scores.
    0 Introvert +2 Static -2 Constructivist 0 Results
    +2 Intuitive -2 Yielding 0 Farsighted -4 Declaring
    0 Logical
    0 Democratic
    0 Merry +1 Negativist
    0 Rational +4 Strategic
    +2 Judicious

    The red represents the least harmonious. If you can prove they are wrong and changed them to their opposite, you will have 100% score of LII.

    If you are certain you are have introverted logic as your base function, that resolves yielding and constructivist, leaving "declaring" as the only contradiction to LII.

    My father is LII. One his sayings that demonstrates emotivism is "People rarely change their minds due to a good argument. You can prove them wrong but they will still not agree with you. The best way to change someone's mind is by being a friend." I personally would classify him as a declared because he does not like being interupted and he want enough time to make his point, but when he is teaching, he definitely uses the Socratic method. I've heard that asking/declaring isn't good for typing anyway. He definitely is obstinate, and my impression is the older he has gotten, the more time he has had to think out his own opinion and be certain of it. He's told me he wasn't like that when he was young. He is a negativist because he believes that any problems that are possible will happen. This may also be because he is a database administrator and given enough time, any error in computer code will happen. He is also very aware when a movie is presenting a philosophy he believes is false. Hope this gives you some ideas for yourself.

    And of course, you could look up the following descriptions of functions and information elements. All the elements are hyperlinked, the number is the function
    LII: 2Ne 4Se 6Si 8Ni
    LSI 2Se 4Ne 6Ni 8Si

    Oooooh here we go~~ Alot of these dichotomies really are shit, why? Well um how bout someone actually write about any of them?!

    //Bolded are the ones I think I am; Green means not enough info, Pink means I'm pretty sure :3 //
    ISxp ~ Dynamic, Irrational, Introverted, Carefree, Judicious, Caregiver, Strategic!
    INxp ~ Dynamic, irrational, Introverted, Farsighted, Decisive, Victim, Tactical!
    INxj ~ Static, Rational, Introverted, Farsighted, Judicious, Infantile Strategic!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Not really considered if below this line
    ENxp ~ Static, Rational, Extraverted, Carefree, Judicious, Infantile Tactical!
    ISxj ~ Static, Rational, Introverted,Carefree, Decisive, Aggressor Tactical!

    ESxp ~ Static, irrational, Extraverted, Farsighted, Decisive, Aggressor Strategic!

    @Chryssie, I'm a bit confused by your post but I would be happy to analyze your results if you can put them in a way I understand.

    The best Reinin dichotomy descriptions are the ones in the 2003 study [link]. Including the four Jungian dichotomies [link], there are a total of 15 dichotomies.

    If you could rank you dichotomies in a single list like this, it will make it easy to calculate your results

    Certainly: 100%-80% of the trait aspects fit you
    Mostly: . .80% - 60% of the trait aspects fit you
    Unsure: . .You are split between the two traits

    For example, you could be certainly judicious, mostly intuitive and unsure of tactical/strategic. Feel free to throw in any small groups you're pretty certain of too but separate them from the dichotomies.

    @sindri

    Mmkay, thanks for your help I'd love to see my results whatever they may turn out to be

    I put spoilers in just for unnecessary explanations on why I chose the dichotomy over the other, but it's not really something you need to read, it's just something to help me think through things. edit: forgive me, the text editor truly is a piece of crap -_-

    [Dichotomies] Certain (80-100%)
    Introversion
    I never really knew how to measure this in myself, I do think my focus prefer to remain in my surroundings even if I'm very seemingly in my head. I get very easily lost though, it feels almost like I am dissociating from the world a lot from feeling overwhelmed by my physical/emotional/mental interactions with my surroundings.
    I also don't have much initiative unless I'm in a situation that requires it.

    Static
    Unless I have this concept a bit warped in my head, I really do think I am a Static type according to the way my memory works and how I explain or describe things and events. I always see everything by its category, state, relationship with other people/objects, etc. and usually my stories are told in a very barebones way, like it's just a snapshot of what the event as whole felt like, with no added feelings or sensory details, usually just say it as it is. Also notable is my confusion of the Dynamic aspects of this world.. it's like it's turned off in my head or something, I'm really bad at following processes that take time where you have to focus on changes over states. I can't follow people's directions easily or remember how to get from one place to another, my memory in such areas are god awful. I really couldn't care less about how things will play out over time either, unless it is involving romantic fantasies. >w<

    Constructivist


    [Dichotomies] Very much relatable but still hesitant (70-80%)
    Strategic
    Intuitive

    Yielding
    But all this means apparently is your level of motivation vs. the required "energy" to achieve something... I have no energy nor desires so I stay with what I have...

    [Dichotomies] Less sure... (60-70%)

    Positivism (I actually relate more to Positivism as described as one of Gulenko's dichotomies for Cognitive Style, the "convergence of thinking". But this description by Reinin isn't as relatable.)
    Aristocratic
    Asking

    Merry
    Result
    Honestly I can do both modes, but Result is more natural and satisfying tbh. I relate to process when it says it feels lost when it comes back to something in the middle of the process, this is very disorienting for me and it actually makes me want to start it all over again (in the case of video games, books, movies.. I just need to do everything in one sitting so I can get the whole feeling of it). But I am more oriented towards getting to the end tbh and tend to skip over much of the process so it doesn't become a pain in the butt.

    [Dichotomies] Uncertain (50%)

    Decisive
    I think that I'm mostly hesitant about this because I'm not a very decisive person in the literal sense, in fact I don't do most of the things I consider doing on any given day, but if I do choose to actually go through with anything, it does feel like the decision is a part of who I am and whatever consequences happen are just of my own fault... even if it really isn't so, so I put alot of thought and energy into each decision, considering even the most irrelevant of factors, which is where my indecisiveness sets in. I do try to get everything done at once before considering relaxing at all, I feel guilty otherwise. I don't really "prepare" for anything, whether it involves relaxing my mind or body or spreading tasks over a period of time to make it easy on my energy reserves. I also dislike having others try and change my plans and decisions, it feels disrespectful and physically uncomfortable to switch over to another activity when I want to get what I'm doing, done now.

    Rational
    Ethical
    Farsighted

    @Chryssie I made an excel program to calculate your fuzzy logic, and I can conclude you are not asking or merry, making you decisively an EII

    This is what the program output looks like. I'll put a link up top if anyone wants to play around with it.

    Thank you so much, and yeah I didn't really feel like merry and asking were dichotomies very prominent in my personality, but they made sense upon reading the descriptions on wiki socion. I'm okay with ditching them though for Serious and Declaring.

    So you think I'm process afterall? It's cool I turned out to be an ethical/rational/farsighted type even when they were said to be 50% correct xD

    It's also good I finally have some evidence for being EII and not SEI/IEI/LII/SLI.

    In the description, I've added an excel program that allows you to click on each dichotomy to select it. Thanks for the great idea. It took me a bit because I had to teach myself VBA to get it to work. Hopefully people will find this concept easier to understand with an interactive model.

    I noticed you changed your avatar to LII, not EII. These are the LII dichotomies, with a newly designed interface:

    Awesome results: IEI 48%, 39% ESE and 30% LII.
    Positive + traits :
    Introvert
    Farsighted
    Posivitist
    Merry
    Result
    The rest is controversial...

    LII = LSI.

    Pretty sure I'm an LII though. I did choose 3 dichotomies that conflicted with LII plus 2 undecided.

I've been trying to write this damn thing for over a year, but I finally got closure when I talked to Reinin and Gulenko and they both said that they don't know the math, so I decided to write a popular paper and trust they will see the truth in it. I was thinking of including annotated proofs in the appendix, but it is a low priority now.

    The basic flow of the proofs would be:
    Prove the reinin dichotomies are abelian groups
    Use the "fundamental theorem of abelian groups" to turn the abelian group into the internal direct product of Z2 cyclic groups
    Show the order of this group is Z2^4
    Show that is Isomorphic to the pyramid diagram
    Use this property to project each trait onto the diagram to create a type of block design called a steiner system
    Show the meaning of each subgroup
    Just in case you're still trying to do this:

    Dichotomies form an abelian group under the XOR/interleaving operation (which has (A XOR B) and (A == B) as its two halves). It's pretty easy to show that this operation is commutative/abelian, and that X + X = 0 for all X. This immediately gives you that it's a product of Z2's. If you also define Reinin dichotomies as being generated by four independent dichotomies, then you get Z2^4.

    That's just the math part though. I'm highly skeptical of typing people by tallying up Reinin dichotomies, to say the least.

    Nothing in this thread to debate or assault. Sigh.
