I have quite certainly typed myself as an INTJ in MBTI, still socionics tests keep typing me as an INTp and I have to admit the description are quite more suitable than MBTI's INTP.
does it make any sense to you?
I have noticed slight variations in the definitions of functions, still I'd like to receive a confirm from people more knowledgeable than me

is it normal to have a different MBTI/ socionic type?

it happens but I don't know if it is normal or often.

I am considered as an ENTP for MBTI and ENTJ for socionics.
So one says I'm Ne dom while the other system says I'm Ti. I don't really care as we are made of everything
More seriously, I think I can be both : I'm rather ENTJ and wanna control many stuffs in my work environment.
I am much more friendly in my private life with my friends, family and close relationships.
If I compare myself to my actual ENTJ date I'd say I'm not ENTJ
+ I get on very well with ENFP generally speaking, clearly due to the fact we wear the same glasses whose brand is Ne
I can recognise very easily J and P types. Mainly NT and NP's.
If I was ENTJ I guess I would not often think (unconsciously and many times) :
"Hell, here this one does not understand me again ! They can't, that's all they can do !"
When most ENTJ fight for their ideas, I'm just trying to find another way at looking at the world.
It works pretty well, they like it (if they are open minded), and it's a lot of fun
To conclude on my example, I'd say I'm much more aloft than what socionics say after I took their test.
Maybe it has been invented for very competitive and work alcoholic people only
For me the socionics's description does not fit at all in my private life.ALL THAT WE SEE OR SEEM TO BE IS BUT A DREAM WITHIN A DREAM

A lot of INTJs are INTp in socionics.
Some say that MBTI IJ = socionics Ip.

In MBTI, it was initially easier for me to identify with INTP than ISTP (hence a lowercase s in my profile), but in socionics, I found that ISTj/LSI Ti subtype was a better fit.

It happens often. Whether or not people are mistyped in one system or the other is an entirely different matter and is highly controversial.
Advice: Choose one system over the other.

Yes, it happens to some, but it's rather an exemption. INTJ uses Ni+Te, your perceiving function is dominant, therefore you'd be a p in socionics and your type should be an INTp.
@ExNinjaTropPervertie socionics ENTj actually uses Te not Ti.Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.

In MBTI the last J/P letter is determined according to the highest order extraverted function. For NiTe type, this function is Te, a judging function. Thus the NiTe type is assigned the letter J.
In Socionics the last j/p letter is determined according to the leading or first function, always, and for all types. For NiTe type, this function is Ni, a perceiving function. Thus the NiTe type is assigned the letter p.
From this you can deduce how NiTe type is called INTJ in MBTI and INTp in Socionics.
What gets conserved are your cognitive functions, and not the 4-letter codes.

I do. According to me. Some people disagree, I have been told I have too much Ni to be SEE and have even been called ENFj in Socionics, but ESFp and ENFj are a common mix up in Socionics just like ISFP and INFJ in Jungian/Beebe related systems. ESFp and ENFj both have a dramatic bent, but ESFp is Gamma, more pragmatic, and ENFj is Beta, more socially aristocratic and obviously Fe. I would just be SEE-Fi, which could explain Fi dom in Jung.
My ENFJ therapist friend actually doesn't think Jung does people much good and prefers modern psychiatry, she's ENFJ in the best sense, and so is my ENFJ bestie from hs who owned her own design business and finished raising her younger sister by 30. I actually love a lot of ENFJ, they don't have the passive aggressive behavior of some INFJ, but I'm pretty sure I'm not one. It would actually make sense that sharing perceiving functions, being feelers, and having different social orientation would compliment and provide mutual admiration and respect.
