Question #1319231921Friday, 21-Oct-2011
Category: INFj INFp j/p Typing Theory
Could someone explain to me the difference between INFJ (MBTI) and INFj (socionics) as well as INFP (MBTI) and INFp (socionics). I'm not understanding the subtle differences. Also, the whole triangle-circle-square thing is totally confusing to me. Please help! -- Todd

A1 At socionics,people who their dominante function is rationl (feelin/thinking: )are j's,and those who their dominante functions is irationaly (sensation,intuition: )are p's.So: FiNe=INFj NiFe=INFp On the MBTI : INFJ =intervote, intuitive ,feeling, judging / NiFe INFP=intervote, intuitive ,feeling,perceive /FiNe So intrevotes usually/always (not sure) do not have the same type at both of them. I think that for finding your socionics type you should learn the functions and how they manifested (for exmple:Ni have different qualities than Ne,and Fi have different qualities than Fe).(there is a lot of information in Wikisocion).learning your relationships also can be helpful .Socionics tests (as not like on the MBTI) are not very reliable. Good luck! -- NiFe
A2 My view is rather unique so seek other opinions. MBTI seems to describe how the casual observer may visualize behaviour (an outside perspective of people) while Socionics descriptions focus on the effect that actual preferences have on functioning (an inside perspective). In a sense, both are correct but one has to be aware of the limitations of both types of description. Neither classification system describes actual function although they use the term rather liberally. Both systems need a unifying theory, which is what I have been suggesting in some of my articles. -- I/O
