Dual contact, dual relations, relationships of duality, relationship of complete mutual complementarity ... All of these phrases describe the same intertype relation, which constitutes the essence of discovery made by A. Augusta that paved the way to the amazing concept of socionics.

Indeed, when you're observing a dual pair, an impression arises, as A. Augusta writes, that in front of your eyes is a separated androgenous pair - so organic, natural, and comfortable... read more

I think IEI could make sense. You seem to imbalanced in someway it is like ignoring Ne in vacuum. Practice some role function to get clear your mind.

Somebody uses your ignoring function, do you get bored/lethargic?

It depends on who they are to me personally. If I am close to them (the relationship is meaningful to me), I may try to pay more attention to the lead

I was thinking more along the lines of Red Vines and Australian licorice.

Introduction to Socionics

Socionics is a theory of information processing and personality type, distinguished by its information model of the psyche, called Model A, and a model of interpersonal relations. It incorporates Carl Jung's work on Psychological Types with Antoni Kępiński's theory of information metabolism. Socionics is a modification of Jung's personality type theory that uses eight psychic functions. These functions process information at varying levels of competency and interact with the corresponding function in other individuals, giving rise to predictable reactions and impressions—a theory of intertype relations.

Socionics was developed in the 1970s and '80s, primarily by the Lithuanian researcher Aušra Augustinavičiūtė, an economist, sociologist, and dean of the Vilnius Pedagogical University's department of family science. A. Augustinavičiūtė has later shortened

Defining Specialized Logical Functions by V. Gulenko

Notes: This is Gulenko's early work that preceded his writing on cognitive styles.

Introduction

General logic, structuring, will be denoted by function L. Its varieties will then be called specialized logical functions. If one considers that not a single sociotype is same as the other in its logical thinking, from this follows that there must be as many specialized functions as there are sociotypes - sixteen. Specialized functions I will denote with + and - signs as well as make use of operations from propositional logic. In this article when the word "logic" carries the meaning of structural logic rather than business logic.

1. Sign dichotomies

Originally I have assigned the positive and negative signs of communicative functions, including logic, to the dichotomy "left/right" [also known as process/result]. "Right" logic I have denoted with symbol +L and left logic by -L. What is the difference between these two logic types?

Right/Process/Evolutionary logic: straight and absolute, has no reverse feedback. This type of logic as if delineates contours of forms on some background that is then discarded as insignificant. It is characterized by absence of context and is categorical, explicit in judgements.

Left/Result/Involutionary logic: inversive, derived from straight logic using the operation of subtraction. It is reflexive and considers not the upfront side as much as the back side of the coin. It underlines the background, contextual dependencies of judgements.

Right logic (process): ILE, SEI, EIE, LSI, SEE, ILI, LSE, EII
Left logic (result): ESE, LII, SLE, IEI, LIE, ESI, IEE, SLI

However, there is another way of assign + and - signs that is no less substantiated: using the dichotomy of negativism/positivism. Then +L will denote the logic of positivists while -L will denote the logic of negativists.

Positivist logic: unified, accordant in all parts. This kind of logic comes closest to what is known as formal logic. An example of this kind of logic is syllogism - inferential sequence of arguments described by Aristotle in "Organon".

Negativist logic: logic of contradictions. Dialectic, containing in itself oppositions and contradictions. This logical instrument works best when analyzing complicated multilayered systems.

Positivists: ILE, ESE, LSI, ...

Aspect Semantics

T. Prokofieva
Source: http://en.socionics.ru/index.php?opt...254&Itemid=137
You know, we cannot foresee
The echo of words pronounced.
F.I. Tyutchev

The matter of aspects semantics is one of the main matters of socionics. If socionics is the science of information metabolism, then its subject is the information exchange. Certainly, we communicate with each other both verbally and non-verbally. And a great role in information transfer belongs to gestures, mimics, and also the very image of the person speaking. But we can not deny the most important role of words in the information exchange.

Watching attentively the representatives of different types of information metabolism (TIM) we notice typical words for each TIM and reactions to them. One and the same word will activate one TIM, will cause irritation with another one, will upset the third one and so on in accordance to the force and deep understanding of the corresponding function.

According to this a socionics expert should know the results of his influence. Then we can foresee the effect of our words on different TIM representatives or at least understand post factum what happened when people did not understand each other, got insulted and quarreled not intending to do so. Analyzing all this “mess” caused by misunderstanding we give them a chance to reconcile with each other and not make such mistakes again. This can be called socionic diagnostics or even wider – socionic conflictology allowing to find a way out of conflicts or to prevent them.

About Aspects and Functions in Socionics

by T. N. Prokofieva

Would everything on Earth be dead,
As if the world has never had
The life in it that flowered,
If no living person yet
The source of life discovered.
S. Marshak

Basing on psyche functions Jung described psychological types, but he did not put in terms diagnostic method for real people. That’s why Jung’s typology was considered for long years to be working only when used by its author and is not good for practical work. As we see that this typology is very effective in practice and is certainly needed both for a psychologist and an average person, it would be good to find the means and tools for defining, diagnosing psychological types.

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.
