The MBTI Socionics Correlations: 4- to 3-Letter Type Code

Who are MBTI Socionics Correlations?

At first glance, the Socionics Types are so confusingly different from MBTI. However, it is not that complicated once you understand the type codes and what each letter represents…

I organized this post by introversion and extroversion, then by whether the type leads with a judging or perceiving function.

Socionics Types Translated from MBTI

In Socionics, introverts are named differently than in Myers Briggs (MBTI).

In MBTI, the last letter of the type code indicates WHICH function is extroverted. As a result, introverts in MBTI lead with the opposite type of function (judging versus perceiving) than what is indicated in their lettering.

For example, an “INFJ” leads with the perceiving function of introverted intuition (Ni), and the “J” in their code indicates that they extrovert their JUDGING function. The second function of an INFJ is extroverted feeling (Fe).

The judging functions are Feeling (F) and Thinking (T). The perceiving functions are Intuition (N) and Sensing (S). All 4 functions can either be extroverted or introverted, which is why there are 8 total Jungian cognitive functions.

I’ll write a full post about understanding MBTI type code as well as Socionics type code soon so that you will be able to read and understand what the letters for each personality framework mean.

For now, let’s go ahead and get started with identifying the introverts in Socionics.
