Due to the number of inquiries about Socionics typings, I've compiled this brief guide for finding your sociotype.
Brief intro: Socionics is a system that is similar to 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. 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've had too many difficulties and dealt with much uncertainty settling on a type. Socionics also explores topics like the societal roles of types and their effect on progress and evolution of societies and cultures, but this is more advanced topics that those who study socionics get into later in their studies. Most comment 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 some 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 down this link: http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...sociotype.html
2. Fill out this questionnaire to receive feedback on your possible types: Socionics - the16types.info forums
3. Read through all type descriptions and mark down those which describe you more accurately: Socionics - the16types.info - Type Descriptions
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 out for some: http://www.the16types.info/vbulletin...Identification
