I've been looking at Socionics, and one thing I know with certainty is that I'm not Beta, and others who've typed me usually come up with EII or LII, with approximately equal consistency. So I think it's likely I'm one of those two types.
Normally I'd assume that since I'm INFJ in MBTI, I should be EII (INFj) in Socionics, especially since I'm clearly not IEI (INFp). But I've heard of people's Socionic L/E not matching up with their MBTI T/F, and I figured it was worth investigating.
The main difference seems to come down to Role function and Base function:

Anyone familiar with Socionics, feel free to point out anything you feel I've overlooked. I haven't already dismissed all of the other factors (despite emphasizing these), but have provided this simplified framework so that those unfamiliar with the larger context will have a semi-reasonable basis for forming an opinion on the matter.
In all likelihood, I'm just going to assume I'm EII in Socionics (despite a few inconsistencies that make me question it) and leave it at that for now if no one suggests otherwise.
