Finally, there is a Socionics book in English. This book describes the four dichotomies: Perception - Conception, Extraversion - Introversion, Intuition - Sensing, Intellect - Emotions. It gives an elaborate description of Psychological Functions and Scales. The authors introduce a completely new approach to intertype relationships, subdividing the sixteen types of relationships into four clusters and seven compatibility levels. This book offers a unique and authentic method of Visual Identification of types, including references to pictures of real people placed face to face by their Psychological Functions. The reader should be able to instantly identify Psychological types by their facial features. Distribution tables show the distribution of Psychological Functions, Scales and Types in the population, as well as the probability of finding the best match for each type. List of celebrities by their types is included.

This book is highly misrepresentative of socionics as a whole and describes the authors' private interpretation of it. Visual identification as described in the book is the authors' invention and is not a widely accepted method of determining type because there are many problems with this method. The authors list psychological characteristics associated with the four basic socionic dichotomies, but they don't seem to use these when typing celebrities. The problem with visual identification is that there are no "quality control" criteria in the typing process, and thus no way of discovering a mistyped individual. The incredibly lopsided type statistics the authors present are a sign that something is up. 46% of all women belong to just one of the 16 types??? 93% of people are sensers??? This is absurd. The percentages are a lot closer to 50-50.
