    Identical Relations

    Chapter 1. Dual relationships.

    As has already been mentioned, this is the most favorable combination of sociotypes. These relations are called dualization, or full complementarity. Obviously, for any of us the most favorable relationship forms with the person who has a complementary asymmetry of functions.

    What is the meaning of the above statements? Mainly that the individual meets a partner whose energy support (by strong function) he readily accepts via his suggestive function, and vice versa - he himself supports the suggestive channel of his partner. Such complementary types in socionics are called duals. Information coming from dual partner is seen as support, correction, willingness to facilitate resolution of any difficult task. At the same time, neither of the partners feels the pressure on their vulnerable function, because here the orientation of functions of the 2nd and 3rd channels is different.

    Thus, in each dual pair, in the first two channels there are four complementary functions. Two dual pairs with the same set of functions form a quadra. Total Total number of quadra is four; in literature one can find their names: Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, or simply I, II, III, IV, respectively.

    Below we refer to the lead unit for all four Blocks:

    I Quadra (Alpha)
    Don Quixote, ILE (Ne-Ti) - Dumas, SEI (Si-Fe)
    Hugo, ESE (Fe-Si) - Robespierre, LII (Ti-Ne)

    II Quadra (Beta)
    Hamlet, EIE (Fe-Ni) - Maxim, LSI (Ti- Se)
    Zhukov, SLE (Se-Ti) - Yesenin, IEI (Ni-Fe)

    III Quadra (Gamma)
    Napoleon (Se-Fi) - Balzac (Ni-Te)
    Jack (Te-Ni) - Dreiser (Fi-Se)

    IV Quadra (Delta)
    Stierlitz (Te-Si) - Dostoevsky (Fi-Ne)
    Huxley (Ne-Fi) - Gabin (Si-Te)

    In each quadra, the types are arranged in such a way that none of them exert pressure on "painful" functions of others - to the contrary, information sent by the strong functions of any partner is perceived as support by others. Thus, the quadra provides more complete cooperation than an isolated dual pair: psychophysical regulation in this group is by far the best and all of participants have a sense of mutual understanding and support ... But back to duals.

    It is easy to see that duals are different from each other in several characteristics: extraversion - introversion, ethics - logic, sensation - intuition. However, on the aspect of rationality - irrationality they are the same. It turns out that in these three features duals complement each other, while similarity in rationality or irrationality ensures the same rhythms of life. In each quadra, there is one rational and one irrational pair.

    We now turn to the examples of dual relationships.

    Dual friendships easily originate already in childhood. Here is a description of this friendship Maxim-Hamlet, from Hamlet's point of view:

    Hamlet - Maxim (EIE-LSI)

    Valerik is my friend; from childhood we couldn't do without one another. When we met, we could play together for a long time. True, sometimes it seemed to me that he would offend me, because he did not always agree with me. Then I demonstratively would leave and go home, but soon our quarrel would be forgotten.

    In high school, without noticing it, I was very dependent on Valerik, felt protected by his side. In the sports section, I agreed to go with him but could only play only on the same team with him; and if it was needed to make a trip to town to buy something - then again only with him. He had difficult time befriending others guys. I always had to help him in this. All the holidays and birthdays he again went only together with me.

    Later, when we were teenagers, it could be that we would criticize one another: I was critical of him for his predictability and his desire to be always right, he on his end thought I was too thoughtless and pretentious. Nevertheless, we remained the closest of friends. We always really needed one another, because with him I could take off the tragic mask, and he, in turn, could feel comfortable and open up his heart without fear of any betrayal. Positive aspect of our friendship was the fact that we were happy to listen to each other: I was happy to listen to his successes in programming, and he - about my new love. I myself, of course, was not very interested in programming. But when Valerik talked about it, I would be lit up by his ideas and experience it together with him. The same can be said about his relation towards my "little tragedies" ... We were very fortunate that during the school years we could be together.

    In this story, as we see, dual relationships are presented in a, so to say, ideal, perhaps the refined version. All the best aspects of these relations have manifested in this case: a successful combination of temperaments, support of the weak features, intelligent and productive mutual criticism.

    The latter is particularly interesting and wonderful in dual pairs. For example, a scene between fellow students Jack and Dreiser.

    Dreiser - Jack (ESI-LIE)

    Many think that our Oleg (Jack) is a conflicting person, but with Alex (Dreiser), they have never had a fight during all the years of studying - they study, prepare for tests, and relax together.

    One time, they went for a swim to the Ob Sea (Novosibirsk Reservoir). Oleg left his clothes on the bench somewhere far away from the shore, and Alex - took his clothes with him and laid them on the sand near the water. After they had their fill, they left the water happily. Oleg went to get his things, but they went missing! Clothing, watches, money, documents, keys ... Only shoes were left.

    - Oh, how cool, I've never robbed! - Oleg exclaimed in excitement.
    Alex did not share his enthusiasm:
    - Well, you unlucky bum, what is to be done with you now?
    - Come on, lets look in the bushes, maybe they are there!
    - Uhu. As if they left you anything.

    So they went back to the boat station and called the police, which arrived after three hours. They were taken to the police station, where Oleg made a stunning impression on everyone with his beach looks combined with an ever enduring sense of optimism. Alex trudged home to bring Oleg at least something to wear.

    Then they started to make an inventory of the missing items. Attendant policeman asks Oleg:

    - What did you have?
    - Mm-mm ... Pants.
    - What kind?
    - Well, simple, black.
    - And approximately how much did they cost?
    - Fifty rubles - shrugs Oleg.
    - What? These pants today cost no less than a hundred! - resented Alex

    In this short story, it is easily to track the complementary effects of the opposites, which are typical for dual pairs. Discontented grumbling of Dreiser is nothing more nor less than show of care about his carefree companion, who, of ...

    Roles of Intertype Relations

    Original article: http://socionics.kiev.ua/articles/fe...oup/ascension/ (only sections 1-4 of this article have been translated)

    Psychological "division of labor" is a mark of a mature and rationally structured society. Ancient societies received powerful stimulus with invention of division of physical labor. We stand on the threshold of a new step forward when professional specialization will be supplemented by psychological one.

    The construction of such classification provides us with the answer to an important question: why does each intertype relation exist? Which relations are optimal for achieving these or that goals? Which communicative issues naturally arise for each type of relation? Using intertype relations for purposes that are different from their intended ones often leads to stress and frustration.

    Within each orientation, I will distinguish two sub-groups that are specialized for solving light tasks and serious or heavy tasks. Their separation is directly related to the Dynamic/Static dichotomy. Light relations (variety and expediency of communication) correspond to dynamic aspect, heavy ...
