Totally false. MBTI is pretty well-known in most Western countries, and used by organizations and companies to test personnel. Socionics is pretty much never heard of in the West.

So first you got it right, and now you have brainwashed yourself and got it wrong. The usual pattern emerges; people come here or to the 16types, and they have often got a roughly correct view on what type they are. And then the madness begins. People's brains start spinning. They spin around and around, faster and faster, until everything is a mess in their heads and they have lost all contact with reality and the basic facts they started with.

It's not . It is definitely not . It is disgusting to have to listen to charlatans who don't have a clue what they are doing in Socionics. You spreading bullshit. That should come to an end.

That's a different thing entirely from what you describe in the quote that started this thread. What Aushra describes has nothing to do with information gathering and pulling together all relevant facts. People simply must see that they are two different things, otherwise you are just blind or don't understand what you are reading.

Yes, that has always been the sad truth on these forums. Most forum members just don't get it. They never learn the functions correctly, and they continue to mistype -- over and over again. It's disgusting.
