16 personality types in socionics

Why 16 types?

The sociotype is formed by a set of psyche features identified by Carl Gustav Jung, namely: rationality / irrationality, extraversion / introversion, logic / ethics, and sensibility / intuition.

Four pairs of traits form 16 sociotypes.


Humanitarian socionics in the description of types is based on its own Energetic model of the psyche - Model G. Descriptions of types, features of behavior are presented from the point of view of "pure types".
It should be understood that the behavior of each type in real life is greatly influenced by the subtype and accentuations formed under the influence of the surrounding reality.
