Humanitarian Socionics


Humanitarian (humanitarian-artistic) orientation

Humanitarian orientation is defined by the following attributes: ethics, intuition, and aristocracy.

This orientation includes intuitive-ethical and ethical-intuitive types that are designed to work with the idealistic sides of human nature – spirituality, worldviews, ideologies, education, psychological assistance, and so on. Humanitarian orientation is most effective in the fields of culture, art, religion, psychology, and other humanitarian disciplines.

Humanitarians are noted by their special spiritual mood associated with their experiences of human imperfection. All of them are mostly pessimists, although they do try to suppress their discouraging misgivings. They often have prophetic dreams that predict unexpected events and changes in everyday life.

Humanitarians, unlike the more optimistic and democratic socials, do not show tendencies for gathering together. They prefer either to intimately communicate with a selected group of people, or to speak in front of the large audiences.

Despite their lack of everyday practicality, people do turn to them in difficult moral situations. Humanitarians are characterized by a special psychologism and an ability to empathize with a human grief. Moreover, humanitarians suffer not so much about a particular person, but about universal problems of humanity. This leads to their moral and ideological searches, doubts, and hesitations.

Heavy humanitarians (sociotypes Advisor and Humanist) work better with the fundamental, conscious, but very inert mental problems and prejudices. They are strong when you need to dig deep into problems of an individual. They do the "heavy" humanitarian work of fostering tolerance and tackling relations with people who have views outside of the socially accepted norms, the so-called "dissidents".

Light humanitarians (sociotypes Lyric and Mentor) work better with the dynamic and changeable psychological states, which are usually rooted in the subconsciousness; they work with a part of the psyche that is suggestible. They tackle superficial, current psyche problems of the masses, they better cope with extreme cases and rally people to oppose alien values.

"Гуманитарии в отличие от более оптимистичных и демократичных социалов не обладают даром коллективизма." Вот эта фраза теперь многими воспринимается как в чём-то устаревшая.
