There seems to be a desire among many to get more attention, more input with regard to socionics. The following are some suggestions as to how the socionics community might attain this attention.
1) Get published in North American psychology journals. There are several psychology journals some 20 feet away from me this instant and none of them say a thing about socionics. We need some initiative regarding the American / Anglo-European academic outlook; in particular, we need voices. People willing to vouch for socionics on Oprah, on CNN, FOX News, Dr. Phil. This wouldn't be very difficult, because the duality concept is right up thier alley. We just need people who 1) are willing to get the credentials (we have this academic establishment for a reason) and 2) are willing to put themselves in front of the national news media. I'm speaking in North American terms in particular, but that's just from a cultural point of reference. Socionics enthustiasts in every nation would be advantageous.
2) Get ready for criticism. There will be a lot of brilliant people paying attention once word gets out. What will happen is something along the lines of Aleksander Boukalov's mathematical justifications of Socionics, but on a much larger scale. Augusta will not be regarded as the new social messiah the Russians seem to consider her as being; rather, she'll be torn to shreds. A new chapter in psychology will emerge with the information elements as base. Nietzsche once said psychology is the queen of the sciences; the information elements affirm his hypothesis. There will be attention, a lot of attention. In fact, the Russian school might get completely phased out of the discussion. History, once set in motion, has powerful inertia: if and when socionics is demonstrated to be profitable, power elites will begin moving in and... well, that's one of the concerns. Do we overhaul our social system on the basis of socionics? Do we demand that everyone marry their dual and regiment people towards one discipline or another, as was tried in Russia? Certainly with some 73% of Americans saying that they hate their jobs in a new poll, there is basis for a new level for social guidance; increased efficiency alone would be a motivator for change. Will we experience new forms of hate, of aggression, promulgated by new Hilters? Will there be anti-type groups desiring typological purification of various disciplines, and if there are, will we be courageous enough to deny these groups what they seek?
All of these are good questions to ask ourselves when we consider making socionics more widespread and widely discussed.
