Socionics and Psychoinformatics as Universal Instruments to Analysis, Structuring and Organization of Human Knowledge

Development of socionics, the theory of informational structure of psyche and society, lead to appearance of effective instrument to analysis of human knowledge in the humanities. A new psyhoinformational approach, using accurate and economy categorian apparatus, allows effectively to compress and work out the huge massifs of information, to solve the many-parameters problems, to reveal the hidden regularity of the running processes. In the human civilization evolution the application of the methods of psychoinformatics can play the same role as introduction of alphabetic script and move it on new, noospheric level.
Key words: socionics, psychoinformatics, psychology, sociology, history, phylosophy, political science, the humanities, informational structure of psyche, psychoinformational space, structuring and compression of information.

Typological Analysis of Vital Programs

In the article are analysed basic concepts of C.G.Jung's Psychological Types, where differences between types are described as opposite vectors of psychic energy (extroversion - introversion, thinking - feeling, sensation - intuition). Psychological attitude combined with the program function makes individual's vital program. Considering various combinations of attitudes and psychical functions one can research different variants of vital programs for psychological and socionic types.
Key words: psychical energy, extroversion, introversion, thinking, feeling, sensation, intuition, vital programs.

Fundamentality of the A-Model: Synthesis of Formal and Essential in System Approach

The article is aimed to substantiate the fundamental nature of information flow (IF) aspects and the socionic A-Model. It is also substantiated that both IF aspects and A-Model are, from the viewpoint of world outlooks, implied by dialectic philosophy, and methodologically by the system approach, which, in turn, is also dialectically based. Being, at the level of a certain science, a socionic model, A-Model thus finds its universality not only as a scheme of world outlook and basis to general methodology, but as a tool of cognition in other sciences as well.
Key words: socionics, informational model of psyche, A-Model, psychology, methodology, dialectics, informational metabolism functions.

Structure of Attention in the Information Metabolism Process

In this work a model of the informational metabolism process is constructed from the viewpoint of psyche processes aimed to elimination of uncertainty (enthropy), to organization of an individual's system of psychic activity in the process of attention.
Key words: algorithm, attention, individual, information metabolism, information, modeling, object, irritant, reaction.

Early Cretan Script Signs as Proto-Alphabet

Based on author's research of writing signs found at the basement of the palace in Phaestos (Crete), dated to beginning of the early Minoan period I, a conclusion is made that they may represent a script preceding the Minoan hieroglyphic and Linear A by 300-500 years, and may be a kind of a specific script which author called Alpha, whose signs are initial forms for all subsequent Mediterranean scripts. Moreover, the signs coincide with the signs on an engraved stamp seal from Anau (about 2300 BC, Turkmenistan). A hypothesis is substantiated that the development of this sacral script according to certain religious-mystical tradition could result in separation of consonant signs and creation of a sacred alphabetic script, both consonant and all subsequent.
Key words: proto-alphabet, Cretan script, Knossos, Phaestos, Linear A, Linear B, sacral script, alphabetic script, hieroglyphic script.
