Seems the old thread is closed so I'll continue here:
I think I have enough proof at this point that duality will keep you focused on your conscious side, not taking on the challenges of superid. The dual provides it for you. That's the blessing and curse of duality. It's obvious that this will prevent growth.The flipside could be that they lack some other type of growth instead in this case so it's not necessarily any proof that dualization would be harmful.
hmm, I don't understand what you mean.I think it's funny how in thread SEI talks about the need of change and LII praises a tolerant and competition-free atmosphere.
Socionics idealizes duality but they have good reasons for doing so, especially within the limited framework of Socionics. Duality can be great, it is just that there are more things to consider. Socionics is not really psychology. Or very limited psychology.Many socionics texts on relationships seem surprisingly naive with their idealization of duality over other types of intertype relationships.
