Looking no further for a Socionics duality chart to understand the meaning of this term in MBTI relationships through the lens of Socionic intertype relations.
What is a Socionics Duality relationship?
Well first, you can understand what an intertype relationship is through this definition from the Socionics text:
Intertype relationships: “objectively forming communicative connections between the sociotypes of people. The stronger and the more intense the communication is, the closer the communicative distance becomes. There are, on the one hand, symmetrical relationships, in which energy-information exchange proceeds on an equal basis, and, on the other hand, asymmetric relations, which are unequal, inevitably leading to the separation of the leader and the subordinate.”
