    Default MBTI vs. Socionics: Which one is better?

    Which one do you guys prefer? I personally like socionics over MBTI. i feel that the descriptions used are way more accurate also than the ones you will find on an mbti website. I also like the fact that they also talk about the problems your type is likely to have. That is something I havent seen on many MBTI websites.

    Both have their merits, on a MBTI based forum however you will hear a lot of angst against Socionics, naturally the opposite happens on Socionics forums.

    I far prefer MBTI. It explains me better. I can see why some may prefer Socionics though - I think it comes down to the system that resonates better with you. I will say that I like how MBTI stays truer to Jung's descriptions of the types, as far as functions go. Socionics sort of puts its own spin on them, which is fine, but far less accurate for me.

    I like socionics better. But I can relate to both systems in ways.

    I like cognitive function theory. I don't think much of the specific branches known as MBTI or socionics.

    "Delta NF" explains me better than "INFJ or ENFP." Fi and Ne fit me well under Socionics, as does a huge abhorrence for what's considered to be Se under that system.

    I shift from Socionics to MBTI and back again when I try to "make sense" of other people.

    In my experience, and from my perspective, certain Socionics stuff such as the hidden agenda (a minor facet) and type relationships (a major facet) are bollocks.

    MBTI has its own bollocks, though, but they don't seem as consequential to the system as a whole.

    I don't know what my socionics type is exactly. I like Alpha quadra, but I don't identify with any types there (including ISFp). Go figure. I'll just stick with MBTI.
