    Default Quasi-Identical relations

    What are your thoughts on the Socionics Quasi-Identical relations? To be honest, I can't say I've had experiences with ISTjs like the this link describes it. I had an ISTj co-worker once, and I did find it odd we felt pretty similar but it took a lot more work to get on the same page than it did with my INTj or INTp co-worker. It was a little baffling, but I didn't feel frustrated or dislike towards him.

    However, I do have a few friends that feel -exactly- this way towards a lot of their quasi-identical types. This pretty much summarizes (from my perspective) how my INTp friend feels about a lot of INTjs he comes across:

    One partner may think that the other partner complicates simple things and simplifies the important points, trying to deliberately confuse and mislead them.
    Thoughts? Have you experienced Quasi-Identical types in mostly a postive or negative way? How have you handled it?

    Oh ya bb, definitely, I heart labels so much, I don't give two fucks about people or their distinct personality, but just throw me the right typology-bone and I'm all in.

    No worries, I can relate. I was just teasing :P Obviously this is pretty generalized if I can't relate to the Quasi-Identical thing myself. I was just more curious if other people could relate to it.

    Bolded is relevant, the second part is a bit dumb. We can't assume our partners have bad intentions - that would be an enemy, not a partner.
    Anyways, I like (most of) my stubborn INTJ cousins. We sort of speak the same language, so even when I don't agree with them, I still understand them very well. Which is a good first step.

    Most of the INTJs I've encountered have broadened my perspective, not trifled with or over-complicated the little things I've already figured out. :P

    I think quasi-id would help each person grow more, but I think it can be frustrating a lot of the time too.
