    Type Compatibility- Which type would you choose?

    If you had to choose a marriage partner...which of the three relationships would you prefer that are listed below? I think these are the best possible matches available and yet each has a downfall and decide which one you could put up with for the next 50 years...post your opinion.


    a.(Myers Briggs pedagogue or cohort depending on type) Illusory relations - Mirage - Opposites attract. Their dominant function is well matched with a partner whose personality is dominated by the opposite bent of the same letter. Both have something to teach the other about their subject of interest. They enjoy the lesson. They share ideas well and are true mindmates.

    Downfall: After the mirage wears off, the relationship no longer feels perfect and you start to see weaknesses and argue more. This doesn't mean you are any less compatible, it just means that your relationship may not be the most peaceful one.



    b. (Myers Briggs Contrast relationship) Contrary relations - Extinguishment -Opposites attract. Their dominant function is well matched with a partner whose personality is dominated by the opposite bent of the same letter. Both are confident in the same areas so they strengthen one another's ego. This relationship is great for healing when insecure and unsure of yourself. There are hardly any differences of opinion or argument in this peaceful relationship. So they both have the same focus on life and they accept each other as they are. This is the option to choose if you want to be the couple that has been together ten years without a single argument and little to no resentment or hidden angst either.

    Downfall: This combination is not the most passionate one and can sometimes get boring. It can also get stuck in a rut because it does not expect either one to change.



    c. (Myers Briggs Supplement relationship) Relations of activity - Activation -Best friends and lovers. Their primary function Fe is your tertiary function and your primary function Ne is their tertiary function so both will become a better person when together because they can help to strengthen each others weaknesses. This is a relatively peaceful relationship that encourages more than it degrades as you both strengthen your weaknesses just by being together. You are never bored together and fights end passionately with a deeper love and appreciation for each other. This match brings out your inner child and you will laugh more than you ever have in your life because it is very easy to have fun together. This connection does not lack in passion by any means. True soulmates of the heart!

    Downfall: This relationship can leave you feeling like you are constantly improving but that may make you insecure like you are never good enough the way you are and at time when you need healing, this could be detrimental to your self esteem.



    And in case you are wondering...here is a list of each of these relationships by type so you don't have to look elsewhere to find out who your favorite of the above matches is...so find your type below and it will outline a-c from above. (I have already adjusted the types to fit Myers Briggs from Socionics so just look for your Myers Briggs type.)

    ***DISCLAIMER- Generally, ENFP's, ENTJ's, ESTJ's, and ESFP's do not like their Supplement option C. The differences are too great.***

    In socionics, we still have same personality types?
    Anyway, when I first read the options, I thought c (best friends) sounds the best for a long-term relationship but I'm not that sure after the suggestions given. I would not go for a) in any case. I doubt a relationship with an introvert will be fun because I have been there already and it was awfully quiet and serious. But I wouldn't mind having a feeler around. Also, the b) variant is not bad because we would definitely complete each other and I feel comfortable with ESTJs but we probably wouldn't ever solve any arguments because they would be always right.

    I guess I'll just go with the flow ;)

    No, we do not have the same personality types in Socionics.

    13. INTJ-

    a. ENFP
    b. ENTP
    c. ISFP
    I would have to pick A or B. . .

    ENFP - The Inspirers

    For choice B you list ENFP with INFJ but the site lists ENFP with INFP.

    I don't see myself with any of these types (of course I'm already with an ISTP and our duality works nicely) but I'd take choice B, then A (though I had a bad experience with an INTP..still..I really cannot see myself with an ESTJ)

    I adjusted the p/j difference to fit Myers Briggs...the only thing socionics about it is the description further into the supplement which is their relation of activity, and further into the contrast which is their contrary relation and further into the mirage which is either pedagogue or cohort in myers briggs depending on the type. The supplement is their activity of relation because of where the third function falls on myers briggs. If someone has the letters INFp in socionics, then they are an INFJ in Myers Briggs. The exrovert letters do not change however and the first two functions are the same between Myers Briggs and Socionics and some say that the third letter and beyond are debateable as to order anyways so I see no conflict with discussing compatibility in terms of the other systems research into the area.

    That website is wrong and I wouldn't reference it for any socionics info. For example, take a look at INFp and INFj profiles and you will see that they give functional assignment of Fi-Ne-Si-Te to INFj profile. Since when do we INFJs use Fi, introverted ethics, as our primary function? When I tried to bring it up to their attention they just say that definitions of functions between two systems are not same, so you cannot directly convert from socionics to MBTI. If INFj profile is indeed correct for me then I use Fi-Ne-Si-Te as my functions and I simply am ignorant about my true functions. That I just haven't introspected enough and don't know myself to figure this out. When I tell them "no, by MBTI I have Ni as dominant function and I associate with it the most. I do not use Fi but instead I use Ti in my reasoning" they proceed to tell me MBTI is bollocks and that in MBTI system functional assignments are all wrong and that indeed I use Fi. Their primary argument for this is to say that definitions of functions in socionics and MBTI are not same. However if you read through functional definitions in MBTI and socionics they are very similar. There is no way a person can use MBTI Ni and socionics Fi, so this argument fails.

    Also look at what historical figures they associate with their profiles. Dostoevsky is in Socionics.com a FiNe personality, INFj. Since when is Dostoevsky using Fi and Ne in his works? Anybody who has read anything that he has written - Crime and Punishment, The Insulted and Humiliated, The Idiot - knows that is is very heavy NiFe stuff. It focuses on topics such as societal issues, politics, philosophical problems and moral dilemmas, psychology and spirituality. He is NiFe all the way but Socionics.com assigns him functions of FiNe of MBTI INFP. And then Esenin, the romantic, the lyricist, the poet, is assigned functions of NiFe. Anybody who has read any Esenin's poems will see how this is completely wrong. They do the same horrible injustice to INTj and INTp historical figures on Socionics.com. Balzac, who painstakingly described all kinds of physical objects in his literally work in great detail (Si) is given functional assignment of Ni-Te-Fi-Se of INTJ while the Si slant in his work is so heavy it is just gives me a headache to simply read through it. And Robespierre, the well-known French revolutionary, "The Incorruptible", is given functions of Ti-Ne-Si-Fe of INTP while he fits TeFi functions much better.

    Wikisocion has the profiles, functional assignments, and relationship table figured out correctly. This is the only website I'd reference for good socionics info. The conversion there is very straightforward. The last letter in socionics represents your dominant function while in MBTI it represents your highest priority extraverted function. So for all extraverts the four letters stay same because their extraverted and dominant function are the same thing (ENTP stays ENTp). While for all introverts the last letter is switched because their dominant function is not same as their primary extraverted function. INFJ becomes INFp because Ni is a perceiving function.

    I have already corrected the P/J difference from Socionics to Myers Briggs for the introverts. You can just pick your Myers Briggs type from the list and it will have the results written out according to Myers Briggs otherwise I would have lowercased the last letter.

    INFp is on the site because that is what Socionics calls it...but in Myers Briggs, it is really an INFJ. They switch the P and J in socionics for the introverts only.
