Socionics Resources

So far there are not many establish English sources on Socionics, since most of the psychological community surrounding it speaks primarily in Russian. However, there are several sites of note, where information should be taken as a whole, and with a grain of salt.

Good luck. :)

Aushra Agusta - Dmitri Lytov - Rick Delong - Other

Aushra Augusta

Aushra Agusta (1927—2005) "Aušra Augustinavičiūtė," was the founder of Socionics. A Lithuanian political economics professor, she pulled from the works of Carl Gustav Jung, Isabel Briggs Myers, and Polish psychiatrist Antoni Kepinksi to form the basis of Socionics.
