Question #1190534287Sunday, 23-Sep-2007
Category: T/F S/N Theory
In determining socionic type, how does one categorically distinguish between dominant and auxillary preferences, when both seem equally developed? As an example, my MBTI type is clearly INFP, both in terms of preferences and in description. Socionic conversion demands that I know which of my S/N and T/F supressions is greater, something I am consistently unable to do. Perhaps it's a function of my F being introverted and automatic, coupled with the fact that I am more consciously aware of my extraverted N in daily life, but I cannot say with certainty that my T/F difference is greater than my S/N difference. Yet MBTI descriptions make no bones about which Jung type I am. Any insights? -- Chris

A1 err, u are probably hoping someone else will post at your pages. have u gone to Rick deLong has two tests. a long and short version. the short version is a concerns based test, and is best answerred spontaneously, and incidentally if answered with highest probability 'agreement' is able to type u in socionics. The long test is a tabular form, in-which u can pick ur brain, but it makes good account of these MIXING FUNCTIONs (i am coining your phrase def with a word def..haha). tell me what happens then?..okay. i don't feel like wasting insights today...except, because with this i can still laught at u despite being tired... 'these characteristics now described is not uncommon, the F/T and S/N barrier is often mixed, especially in such an individual who first grows, and from cognition recognizes F based characteristics which are summarized in T vectorized form, where-upon trends are noticed and purely T conceptions come about for the first time'. genuinely bedazled by your S/N confusion, unless u have also cognized your S action modes and described this for yourself as lack of N. about T/F, i have thought that Fs don't think about there mixed T/F variable sets. i thought this is only a T characteristic where the 'blame' is set on F-teaching societies, but also this is developmentally normal if u think we come originally from a child (or more specifically, that insight times for all the TF and NS bliss are emphasized in our minds). also, check Rick deLongs site, he typed himself as ENTP, and recently, if i would believe the moderators, typed himself as ENFP. so he might have some more insight on the exact T/F cognito-developmental phase. not all of your post is theory, the T/F and S/N dominance thing is rubbish, u will soon realize which of these are dominant if u do rick delongs action mode tests. -- @sirac
Moderator's comment
From what I know Rick was always considering himself an ENFp, I don't know where you get your information from.
A2 As far as I'm aware the T/F difficulty can also be a sign of being p rather than j -- Cyclops

A3 from my brain. a-famed as a ENTP,...that is she is the finder of socionics. i am pretty sure Rick typed himself in the same category. well whatever, it makes little difference now. -- @sirac
