    Red face MBTI youtubers

    It was interesting hearing about Nathan Glass. However, now I'm curious about the types of all MBTI youtubers (some of which also discuss Socionics). I've listed some of them here. Feel free to add more if you desire.

    Frank James:

    I think he's IEI, so I think INFJ definitely works in terms of cognitive functions. His videos are entertaining, but they're not insightful enough to really grab my interest.

    Casual Cognition:
    Calypso:


    I'm seeing Fe here, so maybe also IEI, but Fe subtype? Could also be IEE though. Those videos are very interesting lmao.
    Alex:

    She looks similar to some of the SLI girls I've known. I haven't looked too deeply into her yet, however, I've not really seeing any Ni so far.

    Michael Pierce:

    I love his videos. His ramble about masculine and feminine principles were surprisingly similar to the process and result dichotomy described here in socionics. I think he's LII though, since his Fe is quite weak based on his body language on some of the videos. Could also be IEI-Ni, but LII seems more likely.

    Davesuperpowers:

    His straightforward style sounds very gamma SF. I think he's ESI based on his VI.

    CS Joseph:

    I haven't really watched a lot of his videos, but he definitely seems to annoy me for some reason. I feel like he's not saying anything really important, and I don't like his tone and body language. I don't really have any idea about his type. I've seen him typed as LSE, however, the people I've known who looked like him were all intuitives. What do you guys think?

    It seems like Socionics is starting to get mixed into MBTI... Oh boy!

    Yes, todays MBTI seems totally different from the MBTI I knew from about 15 years ago, which was full of meaningless Forer-effect mumbo jumbo at the time.

    protip: if a girl types herself INFJ in MBTI then she EII. If a guy types himself INTJ in MBTI then he is IEE.

    Lmao that makes sense I guess. I always felt like the INTJ profiles don't really make any sense at all. It literally just sounded like an LSI who happened to be very smart. When I first got into MBTI, I always had a feeling that the types were too shallow and didn't really represent real people. However, I soon realized that socionics had the descriptions I was looking for.

    I think she values Si/Ne.

    Watched some of Frank’s first video posted here and yeah, he does have some good content. I think I kind of get what he’s doing with his style and it’s not as serious as Bogdan I do think Fe-valuing works best for Frank in both MBTI and socionics

    Frank James - INF*
    Casual Cognition - ESTJ
    C.S. Joseph - I*TJ
    Psychology Tea - ESFJ

    MBTI itself is one of dichotomies tests similar to used in Socionics. It's compatible with Socionics by dichotomies theory and hence in types said by them. There are mistakes in typing, mistakes and expansions in some parts of the theory on both sides. Types are the same.
    So would be more useful to note about Jung types youtubers. They have similar content, except some parts of the theory.

    Theory: Calypso (an IEE), mistakes INTJs as SLIs, and that's why she labels them as the most attractive type in "society's opinion".

    Isn't that a good thing? To me, Socionics was always a part of MBTI. (Though I only got into MBTI/Typology in 2016). I remember someone asked a question on Quora, "What does an INFP look like?" I answered like "Blank, expressionless face. Look innocent, harmless. Teddybear look. ISFPs look more intense, almost evil looking eyes." This was obviously regarding EIIs and ESIs. I don't think I even knew this came from Socionics at the time. Type Tips (an MBTI YouTuber) would often talk of Socionics. He would compare the look of Jennifer Lopez (ESFJ) and Tyra Banks (ENFJ) and say that Tyra has a more 'darker' look/vibe. He would say that INFJs and INFPs both have equally strong Ni and Fi, but INFJs prefer to use Ni and INFPs prefer to use Fi. I didn't know this was from Socionics at the time either. I had no idea where it came from. So, to my perspective, Socionics was always a part of MBTI.

    I've been noticing some rather stark differences between the Se of Jung and MBTI and that of Socionics recently. Socionics Se has basically nothing to do with Jung's Se.

    There's also the stripping out of meaning that happened in Socionics by changing the idea of F into ethics rather than feeling. There's probably more, but that's enough I think to call into question whether or not Socionics had the right idea.

    I think Socionics has some good ideas, but I don't think of it as highly as I used to. MBTI is also flawed, so maybe the best solution is some kind of hybrid that doesn't exist yet. The MBTI people seem a lot more willing to adapt. Socionists are more dogmatic. MBTI peeps are willing to follow observation if it doesn't fit the theory. With socionists, be ready for the holy Inquisition if you challenge anything. Lol

    Intensity probably relates more to Enneagram type and stacking than anything else, along with upbringing.

    I also don't think of MBTI as shittily as I used to. It has some good points and thoughts. There is good writing out there from an MBTI perspective. There's a lot more writing in MBTI that is geared towards personal development, and the general idea of using the auxiliary to balance the type is going in the right direction.

    I've noticed some differences too.

    "Intensity probably relates more to Enneagram type and stacking than anything else, along with upbringing."

    But doesn't Se have to do with 'intensity' also? By 'intensity', I meant people who look intense on the outside. Since Se folks are very in tune with the external world, they tend to look more intense and present. Whereas N types look more like they're somewhere else, off in a different dimension, or like they're high or something.

    The instinct variants have the most profound effect here. Sp doms no matter what type are still going to look like wallflowers who are just peeping outside when they do engage with the external world.
