Names for the 4 support function pairs
Are there? If not, this would be quite useful. I don't have enough insight into socionics to even postulate some of my own.
Here's one reason why the support pairs need names: the fundamental dichotomy in society according to socionics is the split between alpha and beta on the one hand and gamma and delta on the other. That is: Ti-Fe vs. Fi-Te. That means the fundamental tension that exists in society should be found in the friction between those two support function pairs.
So: understanding & emotion vs. intimacy and knowledge, or... Gamma-Delta institutional and Alpha-Beta counter-institutional... Something like that?
Alpha, Beta: theorists, cheerful
Gamma, Delta: practical people, serious
Functions in blocks:
Alpha, Gamma: democrats
Beta, Delta: aristocrats
Alpha: initiation and entertainment
Beta: consolidation and management
Gamma: realization and ideology
Delta: stability and comfort
