duality

  1. Socionics Forum
    I originally posted about this as a reply to a very old thread that I came across but thought I’d create a new “discussion” for those of you who are truly trying to understand duality... It took me YEARS of introspecting, extensive socionics ed, going back and forth & erroneously typing the same...
  2. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Jesus probably wasn't real and the new testament was most likely written by scholars in the library of alexandria for the roman emperor to keep the israelites subdued. Now it makes sense that both INFP and INFJ personalities amalgamated into a singular person because of the different authors...
  3. Socionics Forum
    When they say your dual is your ideal match, does that mean that you should be happier and healthier in a dual relationship than any other type of relationship? Or does it just mean that you understand each other better than other type combinations? I am pretty sure the most unhealthy couple...
  4. Socionics Forum
    First thread post! Am I doing this right? Eh, who cares (: (But seriously, tell me if I'm doing this wrong O__O) Anyone have any experience with their dual? How did you guys meet and where? How & when did you KNOW they were your dual? This stuff is fascinating to me and since I've had my own...
  5. Socionics Forum
    Everybody who's into socionics knows about a so-called duality. When it comes to IEI-SLE we have two polar opposites: non-materialistic, dreamy and abstract thinking IEI and materialistic, down-to-earth and practical SLE. As for myself, my experience with my duals, especially people of my...
  6. Socionics Forum
    Hello you all, i first learned about typology with mbti and there are many articles that state that working on your inferior function (socionics suggestive) will make you more healthy and balanced, and make you more capable in using your dominant. The explanation they give is that the approach...
  7. ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    Based on some of the forum posts I've read, ISTP's are often seen as cold and distant. But sometimes I actually do get those overwhelming feelings of love and affection (sometimes neediness) especially for my ENFP partner. I get butterflies thinking of him. My body feels like melting whenever...
  8. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    in a funny kind of way I think all types tend to self supply and 'get off' on their inferior function. I know my dad (ISTP), loves to get upset, he's secretly a huge drama queen, with a whole shakesperian play going on inside his head. I too (INFJ) tend to get a real kick out of Se. I secretly...
  9. Sex and Relationships
    Hi guys, Genuinely would like to know your opinion on Male INFJ's with Female ESTP's. I like a female ESTP at my college, and I think she likes me too, however, my lack of Se really prevents me from doing anything about it. She has actually initiated things, but I notice whenever she gets too...
  10. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi guys, Genuinely would like to know your opinion on Male INFJ's with Female ESTP's. I like a female ESTP from college, and I think she likes me too, however, my lack of Se really prevents me from doing anything about it. She has actually initiated things, but I notice whenever she gets too...
  11. Myers Briggs Forum
    Hi! Have any of you perceptors experienced lack of connective conflict in your way of reality checking to have an healthy meaning and termonology? I have done some research and i am pretty sure that judgmental conflicting views on the subjective meaning is totally of the roof! 1) connective...
  12. Socionics Forum
    I understand the concept behind duality, but I am having a hard time seeing it as anything more than a pretty theory. I don't have much personal experience to draw any conclusions on (although I can say that I have never met anyone I would classify as an extroverted feeler that I could stand...
  13. What's my Socionics type?
    Here we go! Type me. 1. What is beauty? What is love? I think I can sum up beauty as inner coherence and completion. For me, if something is beautiful, it is serendipitous, like order developing itself from apparent chaos. For example, if a sentence has a deeper layer of meaning beyond the...
  14. ESTP Forum - The Doers
    K, I will give a brief overview for people who don't know Socionics. INFp and ESTp are types in Socionics that generally correspond to INFJ and ESTP in Myers Briggs, this point can be argued but overall it can be directly translated over. I never knew about this experience until I gave it a go...
  15. Blog
    I think I may have left the wrong impression with my words in my last note, "It's Finally Over." I want to clear some things up. I appreciate what each of you has said in response, but I want to be clear that my words were not meant to be a pity party to gain sympathy or to demonstrate some form...
  16. Myers Briggs Forum
    Im an ENFP in love with an ISTP. Duality...at its best...sigh... My ISTJ mom and INFJ dad are furious that their daughter is in love with someone who is far from our culture. Example: Swedish and Somalian. Very very different. Just to give you an idea. My ISTJ mom doesnt comprehend how I could...
  17. Cognitive Functions
    The following functions respect each other: Ne <--respect--> Si Ni <--respect--> Se Te <--respect --> Fi Fe <-- respect --> Ti For this reason, there is one type to each of us known as the "conflicting partner". The conflicting partner is the type with whom none of your functions can respect...
