    Various aspects of socionics, a theory of psychological types and their relationships, were critically reviewed. Philosophical underpinnings of the theory were discussed, including problematic concepts such as information and its metabolism. The mechanism of intertype relationships was explained with examples. The cybernetic structure of information transfer between all psychological types was presented and its possible implications for real societies were briefly discussed. The status of socionics as scientific theory was evaluated and the examples of its applications were briefly reviewed. Although there are doubts regarding its scientific foundation, socionics has interesting connections with modern philosophy of the mind and cognitive sciences. Some of its findings may be useful in the fields of occupational psychology and social analysis. ion_Metabolism_at_Individual_Interpersonal_and_Soc ietal_Levels/links/5c2d34c5a6fdccfc7078fd61/Review-of-the-Socionic-Model-of-Information-Metabolism-at-Individual-Interpersonal-and-Societal-Levels.pdf

    “My typology is . . . not in any sense to stick labels on people at first sight. It is not a physiognomy and not an anthropological system, but a critical psychology dealing with the organization and delimitation of psychic processes that can be shown to be typical.”​ —C.G. Jung

    They have found a small correlation between parents and offspring types. Also found that if you interact a lot with other people in childhood then your weak functions might be better developed since you share information. A lot of information in this one link Aylen!
