The rest of your argument has no interest to me other than MBTI = Good but don't consider it science. Socionics = Could be good but makes claims that I've found to be lackluster at best when applied.
Bump. Just because.
My two cents about all that Jung vs MBTI debate.
How do we know that Jung was right with his X chapter and his observations? it was his model and maybe it had some basis but maybe it had its flaws. In any other sphere and scientific field later researches expand and correct earlier findings.
With cognitive psychology as far as I try to understand modern tendency is to disregard Jung's view at all. I mean, modern psychology found out that people have 6 basic personality dimensions.
Agreeableness; conscientiousness; extraversion; openness to experience; and neuroticism, plus honesty and tendecy to arguments 9I don't remember the exact name).
I mean, whether we take Jung's theory or mbti or any other built only four dimensions it will be only a part of real personality.

is it really possible to debunk something that people subconsciously invest in the moment they find it?
doesn't matter how much the science says the astrology is wrong people will still use it to glean useful information about each other.
same thing here with mbti.
though granted some infograbs are sinister but alas that's just people.
People are so different from each other, that a precise classification of people is not possible, unless it has eight billion types, where each personality type is named after a specific person... Most people can be determined as belonging to multiple MBTI types at the same from different points of view, equally corresponding to the MBTI concept. :-)
