# Thread: Article: Socionics Type and Intertype Statistics by Filatova

1. ## Article: Socionics Type and Intertype Statistics by Filatova

2. The author doesn't explicate this but beta quadra is the most populous, followed by gamma, alpha, then delta. Definite implications for politics and business decision-making.

The author is also positing heritibility as a factor in type development. Another explanation is that mothers and fathers create the type of their children, in their parenting reinforcement styles. A conscious and unconscious process. Families can be preoccupied with resolving or "fixing" family issues or interactional patterns.

3. That's why they say that it skips a generation.

4. I've ran some calcs on type statistics at two online places - this forum & a Russian-speaking socionics site.
Here are the results. Keep in mind that these are online stats and distribution of types irl might be different.

Statistics of the16types.info - based on my 220 type entries community typing spreadsheet.

Alpha: LII(29)-13.2%, ESE(4)-1.8%, SEI(10)-4.56%, ILE(22)-10.0%

Beta: LSI(7)-3.2%, EIE(11)-5.0%, IEI(31)-14.1%, SLE(9)-4.1%

Gamma:ESI(14)-6.4%, LIE(8)-3.6%, ILI(7)-3.2%, SEE(5)-2.3%

Delta: EII(21)-9.6%, LSE(5)-2.3%, SLI(14)-6.4%, IEE(23)-10.5%

Total Alpha members: 29.6%
Total Beta members: 26.4%
Total Gamma members: 15.5%
Total Delta members: 28.6%

Overview:
Most common types on this forum: IEI (14%) LII (13%) IEE (10%) ILE (10%) EII (9%)
Most common types on this forum from each quadra: LII, IEI, ESI, IEE.
Least common types on this forum from each quadra: ESE, SLE, SEE, LSE (extroverted sensors basically)
The most common Ego element on 16T: Ne.
Most prevalent quadra on 16T: Alpha.
Least prevalent quadra on 16T: Gamma*.

By Ego elements:
- Ne-ego "Childlike" 43%
- Ni-ego "Victim" 26%
- Se-ego "Aggressor" 16%
- Si-ego "Caregiver" 15%

By dichotomies:
Intuitive 70% ----- Sensing 30%
Ethical 55% ------- Logical 45%
Irrational 55% ---- Rational 45%
Judicious 58% ---- Decisive 42%
Subjectivist 55% - Objectivist 45%
Introvert 60% ---- Extrovert 40%

* The low numbers of Gamma types is actually congruent with the low activity of the Gamma subforum which over the past years contains only half the amount of threads as the other three subforums (~25 pages of threads vs. ~50-60 pages in Alpha, Beta and Delta).

Introvert 56% ----- Extrovert 44%

Results: The distribution of types and quadra on Socionik.com forum turned out to relatively balanced, with slight predominance of Delta quadra (which could be due to Delta administration). Some of the type stats between Socionik.com and 16T were repeated e.g. most common types from each quadra were LII, IEI, ESI, and IEE on both sites, and most prevalent information information element was Ne on both websites.

5. Ne Egos are often more interested in Socionics, cause it's a very innovative theory which breaks with every junguian and MBTI paradigms. That's why they're more frequent in here.

Ni Egos are rarer cause they're often skeptical of new approaches to theories, specially ILIs. LIEs don't waste their time here cause they're too busy, and Beta NFs are probably 60-80% of the Victim's results - cause Ti valuers love complex theories.

These results aren't faithful to real life.

Another thing is that these statistics are from Russia. Each country has its own type distribution. In USA for example, it seems in the MBTI statistics that Si Egos predominante in there. In Brazil, where I live, it's very clear that Se Egos are by far the most common - maybe 30-40% of the population.

6. I think it is difficult to say which quadra is the most common because there are really uncommon types in each quadra. Regardless of culture, I think the most common types, BY FAR, are extraverts+intuition. EIE, IEE, ILE, LIE.

7. In Filatova's study, how do we know how random the sample was? Or whether the people were typed correctly to begin with? Also 299 is not that large of a sample size.

8. Some more forum demographic stats, from a few years ago: https://www.the16types.info/vbulleti...=1#post1014620

There's charts over several pages.

9. My only problem with this is that socionists type differently and there is no standard for socionists for typing. Self reporting could be a biased metric. That is why it is really difficult to accept socionics stats. I guess in the end you can just accept them but ONLY within the scope (or universe, if you want to call it that) of the socionist. The speculations that people come up with are interesting though.
