Exploring How Society Works


What is a dyad?

yin-yang.jpgA dyad equates to a pair of types who share a duality, the relationship of functional equilibrium i.e. mental or emotional balance. It equates to two individuals maintaining a sociologically significant relationship.

Socionic dyads:

[Irrational pairs]

[Rational pairs]

Dyads – at a glance:

All dyads are a duality of two complimentary types. They often appear to others like a separated androgynous pair. In the images above I just happened to choose men for the extratim types and women for the intratim types.

Of course duality can and will exist in dyads of all gender combinations.
