Is the Number of Accentuations Limited?

It is demonstrated that the entire psychological space is formed by 15 orthogonal factors. Possibility of reliable determining of all the 15 factors by answers of respondents to psychological questionnaires is substantiated; valid algorithms of diagnostics have been developed; psychological contents of all the 15 Reinin's criteria has been revealed in projection on specific questions of the questionnaire. Interaction between all the socionic criteria without exception by formula of their multiplication, where two criteria engender the third, has been proved experimentally. At the same time, high residual level of independence for each of the criteria from the other 14 (about 60% of free dispersion) has been revealed. Physiological "backbone elements" for several Reinin's criteria have been found. It is demonstrated that the second probable type in the individual typological profile may be any other type, which in turn confirms equal possibility of development of accentuation towards any intertype relationships. Variety of accentuations results in elimination of borders between types. The so-called terminal accentuation (according to Gulenko) is identified with accentuations towards illusionary, kindred and Super-Ego relationships, and the initial accentuation with accentuations towards semi-duality, back supervision and collaboration relationships. In other words, the "terminal" accentuation consists of 6 subtypes, not counting mixed cases. The connection of the criterion Rationality/Irrationality with balance of judging and perceiving functions is proved.
Key words: socionics, Reinin's criteria, psychological testing, psychological diagnostics, differential psychology, psychological accentuations, psychophysiology.

Accidental and Systematic Errors of the Socionic Diagnostics

The author proposes to borrow from metrology several terms and definitions and the method of error analysis in order to evaluate precision of the socionic diagnostics. It is demonstrated through the metrological error analysis that correctness of results of the socionic diagnostics is most affected by the methodological part of the whole system of errors. Several reasons of errors specific for socionics are attributed to Ukhtomsky's dominant and non-usage of Reinin's criterion Leftist/Rightist. Ways of increasing precision of socionic diagnostics are proposed.
Key words: socionic diagnostics, accidental and systematic errors of the diagnostics, methodological error of diagnostics, The Socion as 32 psyche types, Ukhtomsky's dominant, social progress direction.
