I joined this forum b/c I want to confirm my MBTI. I'm not sure whether I'm a TeFi or TiFe user, but I'm almost certain that I'm an NeSi user.
Understanding socionics will take some relearning concepts from MBTI. This is a pretty good socionics site: Wikisocion
You also may want to post a type video and/or questionnaire on the forum.
We don't do no mbti round here
The Self is temporary but xSFxs are eternal
Just like they said this is a Socionics forum but if you just want to know your pure MBTI type, just read the dichotomies here. I know it's popular now to incorporate Jungian functions in MBTI and I'm assuming that's what you want since you mentioned functions (Te, Fi, etc.) so this is basically it:
Ti - decides based personal logic
Te - decides based on objective knowledge (i.e., second-hand information)
Fe - decides based on the collective
Fi - decides based on personal feelings
Once you dig deeper, MBTI typing breaks down because it's a faulty system. You can check Jung and Socionics if you want.
Common stereotypes (it would be easier for you to know your MBTI type by stereotyping yourself):
xNFP - idealistic, life is full of rainbows, I'm very sensitive
xNTP - I'm a genius but no one understands, I'm lazy and couldn't attend appointments on time
xSFJ - Very kind and happy, mom-type, I open the windows and greet the birds good morning
xSTJ - I like woodworking, I have to-do lists and I follow my plans, I'm very normal
The resource you linked seems extensive and helpful. I'll read through it. Thank you!
