    I prefer Socionics. However, they both give me that general "This is NOT empirical science... approach with caution" vibe.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    I'm also active on the socionics forum, I enjoy the forum and the discussions the arise there. But since there's not a whole lot of literature out there (at least the stuff that's translated in English), there's alot more speculation and conjecture. Alot of the stuff I read on that forum is quite abstract and hard to grasp without any good, specific examples. There isn't even always a good general consensus on what some of the basic terms even really mean, which adds to the confusion.
    100% agreed. I'm a native Russian, and have spent whole my life in Russia, and so I can compare the texts on both languages. I have come to this forum occasionally from Google in search on the hidden agendas of MBTI types. There's not much information about it on socionics sites, and I need it for my friends have asked me to clear a specific question on "Reinin's signs".
    I don't think there's much information on the subject of Reinin's signs in socionics in English, though right now on russian socionics forum's there's a huge discussion about it going on. So the MBTI and socionics differ in many ways for me, both in the approach and the subject.
    Btw, i don't like much either MBTI or soconics, I'm just curious Sometimes. When been asked
