    Semantics and Vocabulary of Information Elements

    Cognitive linguistics is the field of research that studies the relationship between language and cognition.

    Information Element Semantics by L. Kochubeeva, V. Mironov, M. Stoyalova

    The tables below present phrases, topics, themes, and words that are commonly associated with different socionics information elements. They was taken from a book published in 2007 titled "Semantics of Information Elements" authored by L. Kochubeeva, V. Mironov, M. Stoyalova, and translated to English language by Rick. More on this study's methodology is covered here.

    Introverted Intuition

    time, processes, speed - crises
    - sense of time
    - a person's influence on time, and time's influence on a person

    the "music" of the inner world (of a person or any object, figuratively speaking)  
    uncertainty - perceiving imagery
    • water-related metaphors and expressions

    Features of Ni speech
    Ni types naturally look beyond what happens on the surface to the underlying dynamics and thus omit many specifics in conversation. To Si-ego types this may give an impression that they don't know what they are talking about or are being intentionally vague which evokes suspicion. Ni-ego types may have difficulty putting their thought processes into exact words. Since these are dynamic types, their imagery is not static but evolving due to their progressive thought process. When you hear to them tell a story, it is similar to watching a video i.e. one easily sees how one thing leads to another (if-this-then-that).

    Ni types may talk in terms of probabilities and likelihoods when referring to past situations and information. When talking about future course of events, instead of using conditional tense ("what might happen") they will more frequently use affirmative future tense ("this will happen").

    Features of Se speech
    Statements of Se leading or creative types often reflect what currently *is* rather than how events are evolving (unlike Ni-ego types) since all Se-ego types are static. On forums, Se types may suddenly switch to writing in large font sizes in order to make an impact.

    Features of Si-speech
    A preference for mentioning details and specifics: instead of saying "a newspaper" a Si-ego type will specify, "my copy of the May 18 edition of the Atlanta Times that I picked up last Tuesday from Lucky's supermarket". Si-egos are dynamic types and will express how something has happened rather than how something is. Their speech can have a flow-like quality to it where they are listing a sequence of events supplying plentiful sensory details and specifics to their stories as they remember them.
