    I've covered a few points in the OP. Most people become interested in it because they find descriptions of intertype relations to match their real life experiences, and they want to gain a deeper understanding with what's going on in their family or with their significant others, their boss or co-worers. Once you know your type and understand the basics, then you get access to detailed relationship articles like this one.

    Another interesting aspect is that socionics examines the societal impact of types. It doesn't treat them as separate and unrelated entities as does MBTI. From this come theories like quadra progression which attempt to explain what is happening on political scale in terms of jungian types and information aspects. This kinds of subject you won't learn from MBTI. The issue is that MBTI has been developed in the West as a corporate tool for career testing, while Socionics has been developed in the East as part of academic research and science. So they've discovered a number of interesting implications that MBTI never goes into, because MBTI is a simplified and dumbed down version Jung's typology created for corporate use.

    "Vivid mental landscape" doesn't really define the IEI type. Any type can be imaginative, just think about all the authors and artists and movie producers, living or decreased, who have been of other types besides INFx. If you type yourself relying on such stereotypes, then you may very well start to associate yourself with wrong types.

    I would not type myself on such a stereotype, but that is what the description said:

    "IEIs typically have richly developed mental landscapes." - See more at: http://www.sociotype.com/socionics/t....QbFGcRda.dpuf

    If anything my typing myself based on the description was my pointing out the flaws in the description vs actually believing them. The description was the one being stereotypical, not me.

    I seem to remember typing as IEI when I did a socionics test. Wish I'd saved the results to view later.

    How is it I haven't noticed this thread before? It seems like what I was looking for. I got more into socionics and I wanted to collect more data about it so this seems really interesting!
    The first test gave me these scores:

    Your Sociotype: EII-1Fi (INFj)
    Other Possible Types:
    IEE (ENFp): 92% as likely as EII.
    ESI (ISFj): 60% as likely as EII.
    SEE (ESFp): 45% as likely as EII.
    The second test gave me:
    IEE
    These types might also be considered
    EIE
    IEI
    EII
    The 3rd test gave me:
    INFP(Yesenin) - 280
    ISFP(Dumas) - 260
    INTJ(Robespierre) - 250
    I did fill a questionnaire in socionics forum and at first I was typed as INFp, then some of the members changed their mind and typed me as ENFj. It seems like none from this forum thought I am Ne+Fi, or Fi+Ne, but they thought I am Ni+Fe, or Fe+Ni. It brought me to some doubts, because I can very much relate to both INFp and ENFj, but for my MBTI type they don't make much sense...

    Socionics is great with analyzing relationships. At first glace it seems to have stricter type definitions, but at the same time it makes it easier to type yourself and others than with MBTI.

    The question is, why did you pick INFP for your MBTI type?

    Why this one out of the 16 types, then?

    I asked because knowing the reason(s) can help with the socionics issue.

    Oh, yes well...If I would be Ni+Fe that would mean I must be Je type, while I am sure I am very typical Pe and I don't see myself in any J characteristics so I doubrt there's a chance I would be NFJ. That's why I decided INFP. The 4 letter code fits me pretty well

    oh that, I don't think the correlation between J/P and being an introvert Je/Pe type works very reliably. So if you don't actually identify with FiNe, just INFP, you could very well be INFp in socionics too. Or not, that's again another correlation that's not 100% But apparently it works in your case...?
