So the Enneagram is basically a person's deepest motivations. The Myers-Briggs is a person's cognitive filter. What is Socionics exactly?

Socionics is just another interpretation of human cognition.

It the same as MBTI - it's another interpretation of cognitive functions and information metabolism that flows through those functions, but socionics went way further into the study of cognitive types than MBTI and studied cognitive functions from pov of psychology, social and personal development, whereas MBTI is typically used as a career research tool. For instance socionics has something called quadra progression that explains how information elements also affect development of society at large which is something you won't find in MBTI.

In short socionics is like MBTI Advanced++

Socionics is taking Jung seriously and trying to figure out how types actually work.
Myers Briggs is watering Jung down to make mass appeal.
