I have a strong interest on Game Theory, so I have read Robert Axelrod's books, which I find amazing.
Read: Robert Axelrod and D. Scott Bennett, "A Landscape Theory of Aggregation," 1993.
The book "Complexity of Cooperation" includes a chapter related to coalition formation ("choosing sides"). When it comes to evaluating the "quality" of a (professional) match between people, the Socionics relationship between them is probably a valuable source of information, a way of evaluating the long-term potential of the aforementioned relationship. For instance, I will quantify the quality of the Socionics relationships:
Supervisee 0.20 (non symmetrical relationship, different values in the matrix)
Look alike: 0.70
Semi dual: 0.60
Quasi identical: 0.30
Super ego: 0.10
