    Be advised, Socionics started in the Russian-speaking world. As a consequence, most Socionics experts write their descriptions in Russian. Socionics in the English-speaking world is mostly limited to the internet, leading most English type descriptions to be written by the average Joe, not necessarily someone truly educated in Socionics.

    That being said, while there are some descriptions missing, I find this site to have the most accurate descriptions:
    Socionic Types

    There's a decent translation of SHORT profiles of the types and their subtypes here:
    Full type and subtype descriptions by V. Meged & A. Ovcharov - the16types.info Socionics Forums

    As a slight side measure, I've made a table below for the various names of types, their first two (ego) functions, and their respective quadras (quadra being the the most prominent grouping in Socionics):

    Alpha Quadra:
    ILE - Intuitive Logical Extratim - ENTp (Ne-Ti)
    SEI - Sensing Ethical Introtim - ISFp (Si-Fe)
    ESE - Ethical Sensing Extratim - ESFj (Fe-Si)
    LII - Logical Intuitive Introtim - INTj (Ti-Ne)

    Beta Quadra:
    IEI - Intuitive Ethical Introtim - INFp (Ni-Fe)
    SLE - Sensing Logical Entrotim - ISTj (Se-Ti)
    EIE - Ethical Intuitive Extratim - ENFj (Fe-Ni)
    LSI - Logical Sensing Introtim - ISTj (Ti-Se)

    Gamma Quadra:
    ILI - Intuitive Logical Introtim - INTp (Ni-Te)
    SEE - Sensing Ethical Extratim - ESFp (Se-Fi)
    ESI - Ethical Sensing Introtim - ISFj (Fi-Se)
    LIE - Logical Intuitive Extratim - ENTJ (Te-Ni)

    Delta Quadra:
    IEE - Intuitive Ethical Extratim - ENFp (Ne-Fi)
    SLI - Sensing Logical Introtim - ISTp (Si-Te)
    EII - Ethical Intuitive Introtim - INFj (Fi-Ne)
    LSE - Logical Sensing Extratim - ESTj (Te-Si)
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    That's my favourite site for Socionics too but the type descriptions aren't good.

    Cool! That helps.

    Thanks for the second link!

    Thought I might share this bit:

    "Intuitive subtype appears by the calm, tactful, sluggish, uncertain of itself person. It seems torn from the reality, inert and little fitted out to the life. But this impression is erroneous, since it possesses the excellent intuition, which helps to it to establish useful connections and to find support in men of weight."
    Spot-on. I'm what you would call a fat people magnet.

    The very best description are the male and female machine-translated ones, available at wikisocion:


    http://www.wikisocion.org/en/index.p...e_descriptions

    they're not that long. 3-4 paragraphs.
