    Default How to figure out your Socionics type

    Due to the number of inquiries about Socionics typings, I've compiled this brief guide for finding your sociotype.

    Brief intro: Socionics is a typology that has same origins as MBTI, but unlike MBTI it offers an extensive study of relationships between different types (Wikisocion, 16types), which is one of the incentives that many take an interest in studying it after they study MBTI. The typing criteria and methods in Socionics are also much more precise and stringent than those of MBTI, which has been of help to those who have experienced much difficulty and uncertainty settling on a type. Additionally, Socionics explores topics that go beyond the domain of MBTI, such as the social roles of types and their effect on the historical progress and evolution of nations and cultures; however, these are more advanced topics that those who study socionics get into later in their studies. Many people have commented that they've found Socionics useful for expanding their understanding of MBTI and typology in general.


    How to find your socionics type, a brief guide:

    1. Take a couple of socionics tests and write down your results. The more the tests overlap - the more likely that it is your main type or a closely related type. You can find a list of tests in this discussion thread: http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...sociotype.html

    2. Fill out one of these questionnaires to receive feedback on your possible types. You will need to be registered to view them. Make sure that you save the questions as you're filling them out, such that if you browser crashes you don't lose your replies. You can post your answers across several socionics forums and facebook groups to get more feedback about your type, bonus points for including a few photos and/or a video.

    3. Read through all type descriptions and mark down those which describe you most accurately: Socionics Types

    4. If you are into visual component of typing, check your photographs and videos for visual signs of different dichotomies. Not everyone believes that type can be estimated visually, but it has worked well for some (about 25% of people report using the aid of visual cues to support their typing opinions):
    Filatova's portraits,
    Gulenko's distance typing,
    Socionix gallery,
    and other materials.

    Early vote for sticky.

    PS - I don't know shit about socionics. I'd like to get into it, if only I wasn't so lazy.

    It's correct. When I click on that link it shows a member questionnaire to fill out, then you can get feedback on your type.

    much fewer know anything about socionics types here, this site doesn't even have a forum dedicated to the subject unlike some other typology sites, but you can post the questionnaire here and see what kind of responses you get
