I have seen many many people refer to MBTI istp as socionics ISTj, etc just because the first 2 functions in MBTI istp are TiSe and they translate this to ego and super-ego functions in socionics ISTj, which are TiSe but the thing is it is 100% wrong.
Actually when you read the desceiptions you see that MBTI istj is much more similar to socionics ISTj rather than socionics ISTp.
For example in both MBTI and socionics istp is called the artisan. In both MBTI and socionics isfj is called the guardian, entj is called the pioneer, entp is called the inventor, etc.
Is the description of cognitice functions different in MBTI and socionics? There is this video which I don't understand: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=UpjOqSuKgUI
What is this guy trying to say? He is missing out on a lot of things.
I am irritated. Even people who read about personality theories make this mistake. Not acceptable.
There are these accounts on instagram specially focusing on MBTI intj and intp and posting jokes and stereotypical nonsense.
This is dangerous for the socionics theory, it will be introduced to the majority as something stereotypical, psuedo-scientific, something like a toy. While it is not. I open my mouth to talk about socionics my friends say oh right that MBTI nonsense "which type is a better potato?" "Which type is fire, water, air, etc" as if this is horscopes.
What should be done about this?
