    Socionics isn't the same as the MBTI, although it's based on Jung's psychological functions. Some say that the types are the same, except the IN_p types in socionics are IN_j types in the MBTI and that IN_js are IN_Ps. I don't think it's that simple. I think that there is a rough correlation between MBTI and socionics types, but there isn't a one-to-one mapping between the two systems. In other words, a socionics INTj would normally be an MBTI ENTJ, INTJ, INTP, ISTJ, etc., but not an INTP for sure.

    I think the system has some merit, but I don't agree with the notion of visually typing someone; it's simply too inaccurate.



    In case you're totally in the dark, here are some websites to "enlighten" you:

    http://www.socionics.com
    http://www.socionics.us
    http://www.wikisocion.org.

    So, what's your socionics type, and/or what do you think of the system?

    That's my opinion. MBTI is far more accurate.

    Even though I'm not a big fan ofSocionics, I do like the idea of subtypes.

    When I took this Short Socionics Test I come out as INFp or INFj, both with an N subtype.

    I've looked a hell of a lot different from myself these past 5 years, i've changed body types, fitness levels, from fit to fat to fit to fat, everything about me constantly changes... yet i've the same personality.

    Goddam I got INTP again! At least with Socionics it looks right :D

    It said ENTj, N subtype OR INTj, N subtype.

    So what the hell is a subtype?


    Yeah so the visual stuff doesn't compute with me.

    ILI/INTp Subtypes

    LII/INTj Subtypes

    I'm not sure which fits me better:

    or

    If I am honest with myself, I relate better to the INFj N-subtype which correlates (supposedly) to the FiNe INFP (MBTI). :?

    Wow, those descriptions both seem rather negative.

    Can't relate to either that well :?
