    The best way to figure out your type (or place yourself into something) is simply to understand the system for yourself and then figure out from there. If you are blank, then you can get someone else to type you for you.

    Apparently I'm an IEI INFp despite being an INFP in the MBTI system. Could this be why in cognitive function tests my Fi and Ni are both high? Or is it just a totally different thing?

    I'm a noob to socionics.

    I did the questionnaire and ended up with a topic that now has 88 posts in it and is filled with the most incongruous typings imaginable: LSE (!), unspecified Ni-dom (ironic, considering that LSE has Ni PolR), ILI, LII, and LSI. The type that I'm most likely to be, given my life history, has barely even been mentioned as a possibility (that type is IEI).

    You can't really be both Fi and Ni dominant so something isn't right. Tests don't always give the right result, so the best way for you to figure this out is to figure out which IE definitions are most applicable to you:

    I didn't take the test. I figured out which definition was most applicable to me.

    Edit- just read the ones you sent me and... they're weird.

    I determined it from this: http://www.sociotype.com/socionics/types/IEI-INFp/

    Honestly, though, I could see either INFp or INFj sort of working. Neither seems all that great at explaining me.

    Have you looked into any other types if these two don't quite fit?

    Well there's no question I'm an INFP in MBTI, which I guess theoretically makes me an INFj in socionics. Maybe there's just something about socionics that I don't like. I think the EII doesn't sound creative enough, sounds more 'harmonious relationships' oriented. Many INFP descriptions are like that too so it's probably irrelevant. I have a vivid mental landscape like the IEI and very much get that out in art as they say Ni does.

    This isn't the first I've looked at socionics. It's just never resonated in the past so I tossed it aside. I thought I might as well check it out again. What's the point of socionics anyway?

    Fwiw, tested as an EII, IEE or IEI on test 1.

    Test 2, tested as IEE, IEI or SEE.

    Reading through descriptions the only ones that make any sense at all for me are EII or IEI.

    I got ILI-Ni, which is gamma quadra, so it's somewhat close.
