Intertype Relationships

Intertype relationships refer to the pattern of functional interaction between two socionic types. This pattern of functional interaction can also be thought of as describing the psychological compatibility between types. There are 14 such relationships: 12 symmetrical relationships and 2 asymmetrical relationships. Because the asymetrical relationships each have 2 distinct roles, there are a total of 16 different relationship roles.

Some of the intertype relationships are more psychologically compatible (or favorable) than others. The different relationships are listed below in order of most to least compatible. Keep in mind that this order is very general and may vary significantly depending on one's subtype and other factors.

  1. Dual
  2. Identical
  3. Activity
  4. Mirror
  5. Kindred
  6. Look-a-like
  7. Semi-dual
  8. Illusionary
  9. Super-ego
  10. Benefit
  11. Supervision
