Gender differences based on socionics
Been wondering , and I have some hypotheses:
- Males have boosted logic and sensing, and females have boosted ethics and intuition
- The overarching type for 'male' is SLE, and for female is IEI (or equivalent).
-You can take a look at actors' Big 5 subt thread to see that females often have a higher Openess score, as well as Agreeableness score.
> Males have boosted logic and sensing, and females have boosted ethics and intuition
Tests shaw more T types among men (~60% of men). And the similar was about F types among women.
This _only known_ and not big difference has a chance to be explained by accuracy borders of tests.
N/S types were close to equal % in both sexes.
There seem to me to be more female ILE-Ti, LSI-Se, and SLE-Ti than male ILE-Ti, LSI-Se, and SLE-Ti and there are more male EIE than female EIE. I know that I've said that a million times but it's what I've observed.
I think that men are more likely to overestimate their logic and women are more likely to overestimate their ethics.
It does seem that men are more naturally logical and manifest more logical traits even when they're ethical types, and vice versa for women. Sensing and intuition on the whole seem like a wash. I've written more about it here: https://wholesocionics.blogspot.com/...emininity.html
Considering that type is very likely at least in part developed by nurture, it'd make sense that general gender norms would make women lean towards Ethics and men towards Logic, though there doesn't seem to be any other difference between gender that I know of. I'd bet money that transwomen are more ethical and transmen are more logical on average.

i think there are on average significant gender differences and it kinda bugs me if we all have to be the same bc there are some more "masculine" things i just cannot be... like i'm sorry... am i allowed to have a nature???
i remember when i took women studies the teacher was big on "equal doesn't have to mean the same" and i rather agreed with this. it's about equality in society not that we must all be uniform. but that was in the early 2000s.
Couldn’t you say LSE and EII with the same logic tho (as the OP)
Yeah, as a male IEI I'm basically a woman. =p
I'm not sure that I can explain logically how I feel like I'm 110% beefcake male even tho I don't like guns, am bad at sports- I'm not very 'logical' I'm more heartfelt/emotional... but I still do.
I agree that ethics are considered to be a 'female' trait but idk, a lot of 'morality' stuff is considered to be very male as well. A lot of misogyny in society has been rooted in the belief that women are wrong, sinful/evil, dark and/or bad. (Yin energy) They shouldn't have any power or respect because villains always lose and the bad guys don't deserve any power or respect etc.
Well instead of morality being "pure" male- it's probably more of a 'gay' male thing specifically. In tribal societies, two-spirit shamans, priests or medicine men have played the roles of spiritual functionaries in our communities. In a darker, realistic way- it's probably the common role a gay man had to take in societies that historically would never accept the gritty real nature of homosexuality. (it's a sin!) Also when young people tease each other they use phrases like 'moral phagg0try' this has a lot of real truth to it if you study history. Some theologians believe that the passage in the Bible about homosexual acts was a gay man telling himself not to do that with another man.
