Geometric Model of Informational Metabolism

The article presents a new geometric model of informational metabolism called Info-Cube. It is demonstrated to help explain such phenomena as the signs of aspects and the natural masks. The Info-Cube served as a basis to a hypothesis of building the Model A for each of the quadras. A possibility of existence of masks having no analogs among the classical informational metabolism types is demonstrated.
Key words: Model A, mental loop, vital loop, verbal functions, labor functions, program blocks, basis blocks, contact blocks, inert blocks, quadra, biquadra, progress loop, programmers, fulfillers, accumulators, coordinators, accentuation, mask, dimensionality of functions.

Increasing Efficiency of Socionics through Complex (Multifactor) Approach to Forecasting Relationships, Standardization of Research Methodologies and Techniques

The results of research performed in small factory groups and young families demonstrate that communication depends not only on combination of socionics types, but also on moral qualities of the partners. It is proposed to consider socionics as a science of human understanding, its analysis and synthesis, and to call the field of metrological provision of socionics research the socionicometry.
Key words: socionics, psychology, personality type, Kettell factors, intertype relationships, socionicometry.

On the Difference between Socionics and Myers-Briggs Typology

The socionic typology and the typology of Myers and Briggs (MBTI) are different and do not coincide with each other, although they both descend to C.G.Jung’s typology and in spite of superficial resemblance in descriptions of certain types. It is demonstrated in the article that the Myers-Briggs typology, unlike socionics, does not completely comply with the Jungian typology. This is why it is, unlike socionics, unfit for building of a theory of intertype relationships and makes obviously erroneous and inadequate conclusions and advices concerning intertype relationships. At the same time methods of socionics allows precise prediction of interpersonal relations, both in marriage and work, which has been confirmed by observations of more than 10000 people made by independent researchers.
Key words: socionics, typology, informational metabolism type, psychological type, C.G.Jung’s psychological typology, Myers & Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), psychical functions, informational metabolism functions, forecasting intertype relationships.
