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

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

Passionate style: ExFx (SEE, IEE, ESE, EIE)

Passionate communication style group is comprised of ethical extroverted types: IEE, SEE, EIE, ESE. This group is most confident in their attitudes towards other people and not afraid to show their likes and dislikes and ethical evaluations. These sociotypes are the most sociable in informal contact.

In conversation, their position is an active search for feelings. They bring emotions to people around them. In their life scenarios, it is typical of them to marry earlier ...

Project and Implementation Groups by Gulenko

Project Groups

Projection is attribution of subject's properties and states to external objects. It requires first of all understanding of the problem and setting of goals. Compilation of projects as the next step in this process means development of course of action.

In practical psychology there are so-called projective tests that are usually made up of pictures. Traits that are most projective are intuition and sensing as well as left-ness and right-ness. Intuition shows itself in the measure of unconventionality of the picture of the subject, while right process manifests itself in selection of important details.

Left + intuition = general results (emotivism)
Left + sensing = concrete results (constructivism)
Right + intuition = ideational processes (constructivism)
Right + sensing = concrete processes ...

The Clock of the Socion: Energy Dynamics of Quadra and Benefit Rings

This is a transcript of the report made by VV Gulenko at the XXV International Conference on Socionics September 21, 2009.

Introduction

In my previous report I was considering the lowest level in socionics - the functional level. Now I will move in the opposite direction and we will address the socion as a whole.

Introduction

Attempts have been made to describe the socionic types in terms of temperament. The most well-known temperament system places sixteen types into 4 groups that share the same two sides of Extroversion/Introversion and Rational/Irrational dichotomies:

Ij temperament: Balanced-stable - Introverted, Rational, Static
Ip temperament: Receptive-adaptive - Introverted, Irrational, Dynamic
Ej temperament: Linear-assertive - Extraverted, Rational, Dynamic
Ep temperament: Flexible-maneuvering - Extraverted, Irrational, Static
*static/dynamic dichotomy is further expanded on here

Socionics: Typology - Small Groups
[See attachment for full text]

Socionics is defined and taught in many different ways. To me, it is defined as the science of types of individuals and their relationships. I would not separate it from psychology. It is the part of personality psychology that deals with personality classification, the study of relationships and laws of forming of groups with a wide spectrum of personality characteristics.

Psychologists practicing Socionics are often asked to analyze relationships in existing groups, to build teams for certain tasks, or to review conflicts.

Socionics has a wide spectrum of application to different areas of psychology – from career-guidance to family counseling and personal advice.

Socionics is one of the most effective tools of self-development useful for revealing personal problems, determining strong and weak traits of one's personality and correcting behavior. Socionics allows an individual to look at oneself from outside. I have a personal conviction that every psychologist before he/she begins helping people with their problems should acquire clear understanding of him/herself and have a professional attitude towards one's own personality.

Any expert's authority in a given sphere of knowledge depends on his/her skill of discernment of objects in the given field of study. An experienced steel maker can tell the exact metal temperature by simple observation; likewise an optic lens polisher who is an expert in his field can discern the precision of polishing by touch, and etc.

A psychologist's expertise is revealed primarily in discerning people's characters, their motives, problems, fears and behavioral reactions. I believe that Socionics helps its practitioners to considerably progress in this direction and widen the horizons of psychology as a science in general. On the other hand, Socionics – and here I absolutely agree with Igor Kalinauskas - is a science of banalities. But the knowledge of the banal, behavioral stereotypes, of standard reactions and standard scenarios in relationships, helps to sort through and set these things aside when dealing with people and their problems.....
