This is a discussion on Socionics Love Types: ISTP within the Socionics Forum forums, part of the Personality Type Forums category; Originally Posted by Poko I read a couple of those. Honestly, it sounds like a lot of bullshitting. It's theorycraft ...
I am an ENFJ and I haven't experienced duality... that I know of.
My dad is my semi-dual and my best friend mirage and my mom is kindred.
ISTP would be fun though. they would have to be into my likings for the occult though.
I find your understanding pertaining to ISTp duality to be extremely inaccurate. You do not make use of MBTI functions and force them to fit within the Socionics parameters. If only you analyze a little bit more, MBTI functions and Socionics functions are really different. Socionics, explains to very specific details how ISTps interacts/relates to other stereotypes. It makes MBTI look so outdated with its insights. This thread on the other hand is not outdated, it's just wrong.
I'm confused. This is the socionics forum, so we are talking about Ti-Se ISTP which is in fact LSI - ISTj right?
O.o also the craftsperson is Si-Te SLI or ISTp....imo it has to do with Si. All Si doms I know enjoy stuff like cooking, crafting & making physical stuff with their hands. This one SEI perticularly enjoys arts and crafts, building film set props.
As far as I can tell Si ppl are also kinda layed back and not very "action" orientated...minimal effort if possible for maximum enjoyment, especially if cozy & comfortable.
I know only one guy who could be SLI...and he is lazy, emotional like rock, very quiet (as in he barely speaks and when he does its in short sentences) and loves doing his own stuff, especially if it involves hiking in nature alone. He is a systemadmin, down to earth as fuck, loves life....very chill.
...omg I know another guy who is the same..that makes 2 potential ISTPs.
O.o both are IT dudes who are into photography and hiking alone in nature (forest, mountains etc).
How are you all so sure that MBTI type descriptions will apply so directly to their Socionics equivalents? What if MBTI functions are simply different from Socioncis information elements? The epithet 'craftsperson' does seem to fit SLIs more than LSIs, but that does not mean that some other type will not turn out ISTP. MBTI is a corporate tool that judges by external, apparent traits, more than the functions themselves (because of that, one's result on an MBTI function test can very well be different from their result on those dichotomous MBTI tests) so you cannot just say that ISTPs and LSIs are the same just because their functions are both given the same symbol.
