Levels of Socionic Knowledge and Understanding Laws of Informational Metabolism

Hierarchy of socionic knowledge levels is considered in the framework of socionics as a science - from lower ones related to elementary typology, middle, relevant to A-Model and the system approach, up to higher ones, relevant to psycho-informational space structure.
Key words: socionics, psychology, sociology, informational structure of psyche, A-Model, psychoinformational space, synchronics, intertype relationships, interpersonal relationships, ethnosocionics, integral socionics, psychoinformational structure of ethnos, theory of systems.

The L.O.T. Questionnaire - a Method of Measuring Jungian Functions with New Possibilities

A model of links between separate Jungian functions and dichotomies represented as multilevel lever scales is proposed. It is presumed to be more correct, due to non-rigid nature of reciprocal balance between the function in dichotomies, to measure not dichotomies, but each function separately. The article gives detailed history, procedure of creation and structure of V.L.Talanov's LOT Questionnaire of 340 questions (a short version consists of 240 questions), which has higher sensibility and reliability compared to other analogous methodologies, and is designed for independent measurement of each of the 8 functions - extroverted and introverted components of logic, ethic, sensation and intuition. Examples are given to illustrate unique opportunities of applying this new methodology in Jungian psychology, in socionics and in researches adjacent to physiology and neural psychology.
Key words: psychology, neural psychology, personality psychology, psychical diagnostics, logic, ethic, sensation, intuition, extroversion, introversion, dichotomy.

Ranging Quadras according to Information Flow Aspects

From the viewpoint of the theory of dimensionality of information metabolism functions the article considers ranging of primary information flow aspects by quadras in the socion. It is shown that the types - quadral programmers contain in the Ego block the aspects, whose dimensionality is the greatest for the certain quadra (four-dimensional aspects).
Key words: socionics, information flow aspect, dimensionality of information metabolism functions, quadra, programer.

Scales of Brightness of Dimensions

A method of building scales of brightness of dimensions between any two socionic types using different combinations of Reinin traits is considered, examples are given. A method of discovering correlation between personality traits and the socionic types is proposed.
Key words: socionics, personality typology, traits, periodical system of the Socion, Reinin traits, typing.

Litvinenko I.Yu.

Informational Flow Aspect as a Quantum Operator

The issue of interaction between informational flow aspects is considered. It is proposed to consider information metabolism aspects as chains of quantum operators. Problems of functioning of the psyche informational model are considered.
Key words: socionics, psychology, informational flow aspect, quantum operator, informational metabolism function, informational model of the psyche.

Personality Typology on the Basis of the Comprehensive System of Rorschach Test

Using Rorschach Test based on the Exner Comprehensive System allows to determine the subject's certain style of problem solution behavior. The problem solution style is stable configuration of emotional and cognitive strategies in decision making process at the confrontation with a problem situation. At the frameworks of Comprehensive System the main styles are following: emotional (extratensive), ideational (introversive), nondifferential (ambitent) and avoidant. The allocation of each style is based on definition of proportion which includes chromatic color, human movement and pure form determinants.
Key words: Rorschach Test, typology, making decisions.

Psychological Modeling at School

A hypothesis is considered that the human psyche possesses two information metabolism models, the basic and the program one. Role and dynamics of the said models are described in the process of personality development.
Key words: socionics, psychology, pedagogy, basic model, informational structure of the psyche, psychological type, extroversion, introversion.

Some of the symbols (Wheel, Flower) may be used for analyzing processes of transformation in socionics.
Key words: way, personality transformation, consciousness, unconscious, Golden Flower, vectors, socionic types.
