  • "Socionics is a relatively young and dynamically developing branch of psychology which is based on Carl Jung's work on Psychological Types, Freud's theory of the conscious and unconscious, and Antoni Kepinski's theory of information metabolism.


    Socionics is based upon the idea that a person's character acts like a set of blocks called 'psychological functions'. Different ways of combining and chaining these functions result in different ways of accepting and producing information, which in turn results in different behavior patterns and thus different character types."

Socionics is the ancient discipline of studying the effects of electric charges of different polarities on socks, in an effort to understand why your clothesdrier always manages to transport only odd socks to the twilight zone, and never a matched pair.
