    Thankyou, @chubber

    How can anyone recognise their dual unless they know Socionics? Now I know what an SEI is when I see one but that's because I actually know Socionics and have been practising my identification skills for a while.

    Nevertheless, people without an understanding of socionics do find themselves attracted to things that stimulate their Suggestive function. As such you can be drawn to someone without consciously deciding to pursue them.

    Often people find themselves attracted to the qualities of what would be their dual but this can sometimes mean that a person will become attracted to their Conflictor (Quasi-identicals have similar qualities) and be heavily disappointed by this attraction.

    At the same time, Extroverts might not even notice the people who would be their Introverted duals because they're busy doing so much other stuff.

    Do you feel that instant pull, that supposed connection when you meet someone who is your dual and what is it like? How do you know for sure? What is the dual connection about for you?
    I did feel instant pull before but the person was a T type. Supposedly I have a T preference too. I never tried to get closer to them because I was aware it would not be fulfilling. At least not easily. It would be nice to have a real friendship with them though. Maybe it just takes time because otherwise we get along very well. She definitely is very strong T type and strong introvert so possibly Ti for strongest function. In MBTI, she tests as INTJ, sometimes INTP, ISTJ once. Socionics I don't know, LSI/ISTj or ILI/INTp?

    There was another person who's an F type and I didn't really notice her first. She sought out the chance to talk to me instead. After a few days I started warming up. That was the best friendship I ever had. Until she decided she had a problem. Maybe this one was a dual. She tested as INFP in MBTI. Socionics I don't know, some F, NF probably, IEE/ENFp, IEI/INFp and EIE/ENFj all came to mind but I thought of SEE/ESFp as well lol.

    As for love relationships, god no idea... haven't experienced anything like that with guys. Some guys did experience it with me though, thinking I was their ideal or whatever the reason for their inexplicable attraction to me. One such guy F type, tested ISFP then ISFJ in MBTI, I think ESI for socionics but at least some Se/Ni and F type for sure. Another guy didn't take MBTI, so dunno, I always think of him as some F type though, MBTI ISFP but I'm actually thinking of SEE/ESFp in socionics, though I really am not sure? One more guy comes to mind, a very strong T type, socially introverted, LSI/ISTj or LIE/ENTj in socionics, yea I can't ever tell these types apart it seems lol.

    I am typed xLE so far for socionics by @edchidna1000 :P I myself am looking at the T types of Se/Ni quadras except for ILI/INTp. In MBTI I'm somewhere between ISTP and ENTJ.

    Well hope this gives you some data points eh.

    Oh and instant pull (the T type girl), it was because something about the person was unconsciously making me feel like we had a lot in common! On a closer look we are not all that extremely similar down to the smallest details of course, but many of our issues are strangely similar. Not all of them though. And communication style, kind of similar too. Actually scary - Soo... I sometimes feel like she's a more extreme version of me. Maybe that's Mirror or Identical and not Dual, but oh well. This is where I felt "instant pull" so I am describing this one.


    The F girl, our communication style has some things in common but is not the same in a such scary way. Hers is a lot more disorganized and "feeler-y" yeah. But I dunno, I just never had to explain exactly what I meant and I don't remember if she had any problem with me understanding her. I think I understood her well on a level. She also told someone else that if she had a question, I explained it well to her, while that other person (a friend of hers) didn't. Basically she said I was able to explain in a straightforward way, instead of BS'ing, if I recall right. Maybe that's the dual but no instant pull there as OP mentioned. It was more slowly developing. I got interested first when I noticed we liked the same kinds of books. I was then tolerating her really extremely disorganized style more (Which initially was a bit off-putting tbh. But no real problem afterwards)

    Nah, not really. I think SLIs are generally pleasing to interact with, and for the most part I easily understand their logic and appreciate their hearts. But I don't feel all the magical thingys. I usually am more drawn to Ethicals/FJ types.

    I have never really searched for an ISFp (SEI) but some of the descriptions have me worried. I want a woman that is strong, independent, opinionated and fiery. I don't want a peacemaker. I know that a peacemaker might be good for me but I want a fire starter! There are certain aspects that seem interesting and I would love to have an instantaneous attraction to someone and have a strong pull towards that person but I don't want to think illogically or be fueled by emotion.

    Yeah, I have taken tests for both MBTI and Socionics and get the same result. I've also looked at descriptions for both and they seem to describe me well. I was looking at some SEI celebrities and I changed my mind. I guess their description can be deceiving. It makes them sound unmotivated and too concerned with making peace with people but they aren't all like that.
    Wow! I have actually been attracted to quite a number of ISFp celebrities and fictional characters from TV shows and stuff.

    SLE here. my dual is claire forlani, so yes. strongest bond evar.

    What I've come to realize is, that if you cannot handle this kind of music playing 24/7 almost every day, we probably aren't going to get along. For this reason THE ONLY TYPES I AM WILLING TO DATE are SEE, EIE, IEI, and possibly LSI. I'd go for ENTj's but there is something unulfilling and empty about being with them. I'm a little too high energy for many, and on the 7th day I rest.



    IEI's are great because they don't know what they want in life, so they just follow me in my impulses, and they start fights for me at bars and get me into unnecessary drama. They also hold my place in positions of leadership, with just as much authority and gusto. And when this fighter jet is done flying, I can collapse on their lap with exhaustion and not feel threatened.

    There are also a great number of IEI's who I think are fucking worthless pussies who drive me nuts.

    Interesting, I also like SEE / EIE.

    kindred / activator right?

    Lool never hurts to have a tiny little bit of a god complex

    How many IEIs did you go out with? It actually sounds so simple, you're making me interested in IEI! :p

    Though yes that passivity seems to have its drawbacks as well.
