When choosing a psychologist, the type matters. But not only. There are also some other factors which play their role. The age, the sex, the stile of a therapy she or he is using. Still they are not the only factors. Type actually plays a great role. Another place where socionics comes to play is the duality. I think that a good psychologist needs to be dualised.
I have a psychologist. Though I don't feel ok! to shout it out openly. And I have had differend psyhologists before her. Untill I settled down with her. So I am speaking from my own experience.
So how to choose one? Types and workers qualities pay the role. Qualities: age, sex, the school of the therapy, dualisation. And types too. You will have to know your type for sure. And after that, you will have to know how do you get along with other types. Use this knowledge to mark down the types you know are great fit with you. Then use the parameters to find a psychologist among the types. So if you are ENTp, he or she has to have at least . So choose ENFp for example. And among ENFps try to find the best. By age. By sex. By school of therapy. By dualisation. Like Jungian therapist who is ENFp as a result.
Some speculations on why to choose dualised and intuitives
There are also some questions I am having. I understand that the dualisation pays a great role. Dualised people are balanced. Your psychologist has to be balanced and being herself or himself. It turned out the best ones, being like this, are the ones who are dualised. Otherwise he or she will have it's own problems. And it distructs therapy.
Onether question I am having is intuitivness. I am not so sure weather a psychologist you choose has or hasn't have to be intuitive.
The best psychologists I have met have been Ns. And the ones who have poor understanding of what the psyche means inside, are Sensors. They seem to have problems at moving to inside the problem. Seing what is inside.
So I sugest to choose, if you can, the Intuitive psychologist. At least when you are yourself Intuitive. Otherwhise you will not be satisfied with the poor explanations from the Sensing worker, because they are not informative enough. They don't grasp the inner picture deep enough.
What types are the best psychologists?
I would like to know, what types are the best psychologists? I wrote down my own experiences. But! I would like to know what types others think should be the best psychologists. And why?
