I am really interested in understanding how the NFP pans out in socionics. I read, at some point, that Extoverts in mbti REMAIN extroverts in socionics... and that Introverts in mbti can vary in the p/j. It is infact this info, that has caused MUCH of my own E/I typing confusion. Yes i understand the systems are very different, apples and oranges some might say, yet I am still extremely curious on this topic.
I type as an IEI in socionics (INFP) AND I've come across a few other ENFP's on this forum that also indicate a socionics INFP typing. How is this so? Are we perhaps mistyped introverts? Perhaps we are so close in preference that we can go either way?
So I dug a little further into socionics.. read the IEE (socionics ENFP) description..MOST of it seemed to describe me. THen i read the IEI (socionics INFP) description, and found that MOST of it, also, seemed to describe me. So here is what I'm (kindly) asking of you;
After reading the type descriptions below.. if you could post what type you identify with the most.. and how sure you are of your Introversion/Extroversion preference. This is not an attempt to invalidate anyones mbti type.. I am simply looking for hard data that might shed some light in the transition of theories.
Also, if you have ANY additional insight on this.. I will ADORE you for sharing!.
