    I agree there are pitfalls to mentioning MBTI alongside socionics. Just don't let it impair your judgement. I feel it is necessary because I am endlessly annoyed when people call the SLI an ISTJ. Other people disagree with me, and since people will continue to correlate between the two systems, this way we will have some data, even if it be fuzzy mistyped data.
    Too many people do, which is why including such a question is a mistake. If you're asking already-typed people what their MBTI type is, I have no problem with that; it just doesn't belong on a typing survey.

    This might just be my curiosity killing me. I understand there are many things people don't want to see in a survey, however I'm not sure I really care about making a concise end product as much as I care about asking as many questions as possible.

    Basically I care more about gathering data than helping you find out your type.
    If you're mostly looking to gather data, stay out of the "type me" threads and pose surveys to people who are reasonably certain of their types. You won't help type-seekers by presenting them with hopelessly bloated surveys containing questions that may not even be relevant to the typing process.

    all the more reason why you should design a questionnaire to discourage people from thinking in terminology to begin with, and to encourage them to share useful observations about themselves instead -- rather than asking themselves about categorizing a different system.

    Basically I care more about gathering data than helping you find out your type.
    it would be useful to examine MBTI only if you are specially interested in the question of how MBTI and socionics are intertwined. but, if you were interested in doing this, i strongly suggest you use a better measure of MBTI type than asking people what their type is.

    it is fine to discuss potential research approaches -- but if you are serious about discussing research approaches, well basically convince me you are serious by having planned out some useful operationalizations.

    ISF Hedonists

    I didn't know that ESIs are known for their hedonism, but I guess I was wrong here.

    That list is stupid. You are looking into behaviors and not into motivation and interaction between others. (which I thought socionics is all about)
    Kanerou thanked this post.
