Jell uses a theory of personality type and information processing that blends Carl Jung’s work on psychological types and Antoni Kepinski’s concept of information metabolism. As a science, Jell’s roots go back to the 1960s, where a group of young scientists, led by the dean of the Vilnius Pedagogical Institute, wanted to define the most common models of peoples’ behavior and to predict their interactions with each other. The results of their research were widely used both in the world of science and in business, where socionics has become an effective tool for building a better team. Based on individual characteristics and compatibility between sociotypes, Jell helps to build a team with the most suitable people who will produce optimal results in the shortest timeframe. All while reducing drag and generating the highest levels of motivation and energy.
Jell works on the widely believed premise that everyone falls into one of 16 types, and the way we interact with others can be predicted. This can be seen in a number of popular psychometric tests, but Jell takes it to a whole other level. Widely used by a growing number of companies around the world to solve the ever-critical team-building issue, as well as to identify the best candidates for mission critical roles. In an office setting, Jell acts as a tool to create non-conflict teams and a low friction environment that caters to the specific needs of employees. Jell does this by identifying the particular skills and temperaments of each employee, and by making suggestions on how to mix them in a way that is both complimentary and conducive to success. You can also use Jell to optimize existing teams, enabling them to be more effective by capitalizing on individual strengths and talents.
Socionics began as a science in 1960s using the typological theories proposed by Carl Gustav Jung, and first published in his 1921 book Psychological Types (English edition, 1923). It has been widely embraced in over 150 universities, and implemented in more than 150 firms, banks and companies in Europe, Russia and the Ukraine. I would like to note the following: there are published several scientific journals on the socionics applications in management, psychology, pedagogy, sociology. International conferences are held regularly. There were published more than 200 scientific and popular books But up until now, there was no convenient, global, online tool to assess your type and compatibility with others. That is, until Jell. Based on decades of research, the Jell test has been built from the ground up, collaborating with the International Institute of Socionics and its director Dr. Alexander Bukalov, to create the most comprehensive and accurate individual and group typology anywhere.
