Socionix or Socionics is a Russian study of MBTI type personality which has a face recognition model.

Socionics, in psychology and sociology, is a theory of information processing and personality type, distinguished by its information model of the psyche (called "Model A") and a model of interpersonal relations. It incorporates Carl Jung's work on Psychological Typeswith Antoni Kępiński's theory of information metabolism. Socionics is a modification of Jung's personality type theory that uses eight psychic functions, in contrast to Jung's model, which used only four. These functions process information at varying levels of competency and interact with the corresponding function in other individuals, giving rise to predictable reactions and impressions—a theory of intertype relations.[1]

IM Elements

[click for larger]
Alpha Quadra
in MBTI it would be ISFJ, INTP
Sanguine, Melancholic, Choleric, Phlegmatic
 Types from the Alpha Quadra enjoy freely exchanging new ideas and theories as a form of intellectual leisure. They like to systematize knowledge and create new categories and speculative hypotheses without necessarily intending to see their theories tested or implemented.

Beta Quadra
in MBTI it would be ISTP, INFJ
Phlegmatic, Choleric, Melancholic, Sanguine
 This quadra encourages dramatic self-expression with elements of theatricism and melodrama. They enjoy finding artistic means to express romantic, abstract ideals and feelings.

Delta Quadra
in MBTI it would be INFP, ISTJ
Phlegmatic, Choleric, Melancholic, Sanguine
 Types from the Delta Quadra value pragmatism, hard work, beautifully functional items, and earthy humor and enjoy "productive" relationships where people do projects together. They are usually emotionally subdued and like to discuss topics seriously with the intention of implementing their conclusions.

Gamma Quadra
in MBTI it would be INTJ, ISFP
Choleric, Melancholic, Sanguine, Phlegmatic
Types from the Gamma Quadra have a realistic, materialistic outlook on life, relationships, and society and tend to view life as a marketplace where forcefulness, positive thinking, social maneuvering, hustle and bustle, and direct humor get you where you need to go.

Temperaments: There is a basic Four Temperaments idea that's been around for the past few thousand years—Choleric (EJ), Phlegmatic (IJ), Sanguine (EP), Melancholic (IP). I don't have the source on this.

  1. Jane, Just came across one of your posts on Socionics. In it you say, "I utilize the basic Four Temperaments idea that's been around for the past few thousand years—Choleric (EJ), Phlegmatic (IJ), Sanguine (EP), Melancholic (IP). I'll find a decent source on this."
    Have you discovered a source for this? It's tweeked a bit from others I have read and am interested to hear more about this view. Thanks, Anita

  2. No, there are so many correlations, this is just one of them.

  3. Okay, thanks - just curious.
