Social Capital


Some types are more likely to build strong social networks and connections in society. Social capital translates into a social network, support systems, and people who come to have your back in times of need. And social capital also translates into the need to be available for others and to give back to others.

How do we build social capital?

Social capital is derived from extroverted feeling, introverted sensing, extroverted intuition and introverted thinking. Subjective logic is often reinforced by arguments, and people who come to trust your judgement and your analytical ability. Objective aesthetics drive types to communicate and interact with others to reinforce arguments and values in society.

Subjective habitual thinking tends to also boost social networks. These introverted sensing types more naturally remember birthdays, events, faces, and people who are around them. Subjective habitual thinkers are better at keeping track of the people and the culture around them. Introverted Sensors are often regarded as more trustworthy and reliable, people you can ask when not sure, people who will show up on time, people who will try to follow their respective duties.

Objective creative thinking also has an interesting role in the building and shaping of social networks. Extroverted Intuition tends to make people see patterns and connections between themselves and everyone else. Everyone is connected to an extroverted intuitives life, so they naturally build connections between themselves and others. This makes it easier for others to feel like a part of an extroverted intuitives life and world.

Because of this, the types with the most social capital tend to be the ISFJs, ENTPs, ESFJs, and INTPs. Because of this, we often refer to them as negotiators. The types with the weakest social capital tend to be the INTJs, ENTJs, ISFPs and ESFPs.
