Vertness spirals

Working together of functions of same vertness is described in the article as work of vertness spirals. There are considered the semantic intersection of aspect of same vertness, that allowing transmission of information and exchange on the scale of Socion through the vertness spirals. It is proposed the hypothesis about the dominant role of functions from extroverted spiral in the development of speech and their connection with the mechanism of mental preferences, which was described by Jung.
Keywords: socionics, extroversion, introversion, speech, information.

Intertype relationships

Linenko V.I

Supervision is not so scary, as it is painted

The article is devoted to the review excerpt from personal observations and practices concerning the relationship of social control (supervision). It is made an emphasis on the positive sides of uncomfortable intertype relations in order to demonstrate the manifold manifestations of socionical theory in real-life conditions. Material can be useful students of socionics (section ITR) for of extending representations about work of socionics in practice.
Keywords: socionics, intertype relations, supervision relations, supervisor, supervisee, uncomfortable relationship, motivations, communication styles, quadral values, practical observations.

Mathematical Methods in Socionics

Banaru A.M., Enina D.A.

Geometric representation of the intertype relation group

Isomorphic mapping of intertype relations onto symmetry elements of a tetragonal prism was considered. Symmetry subgroups of the socion were derived, big and small type groups in it listed.
Keywords: symmetry group, intertype relations, subgroup.

Problems of Socionic Education

Didactic aspect of question about the choosing the basises of the bipolar significances

It is discussed the boundarings on choosing the basises of the bipolar significances both information aspects and for TIMs case from the didactics point of view at socionics. It is shown that the basis which wouldn’t be contradicted the Jungian typology is producing the case of 15 bipolar significances which is coinciding with case of Augustinavichute-Reinin significances only particularly.
Keywords: socionics, information aspects, Jungian basis, Augustinavichute-Reinin significances, types of information metabolism.


Litvinenko I.Yu.

Where is socionics moving? (the critical notes to some web content)

It is watched the temporary condition of socionics knowledge including through the analyzes of sentences in the social networks. It is made the conclusion that socionics is often appearing in awareness of some people as psychological typology. There is a kind of people which are rejecting the base items (such as information aspects, functions of information metabolism and A-Model) but nevertheless declarating themselves as socionicists.
Keywords: socionics, typology, psychology, information aspects, A-Model.

Informational aspects

In the article you will find a new approach to the classification of functions from the perspective of basic dichotomies (perception–judgment, statics–dynamics, extraversion–introversion and concreteness–abstractness). This concept of the functions is best compared to the psychophysiological theory of associative socionics and the Information-Energy Model (IEM). The author have described the aspects of information semantics in the classical socionics sense with a strong emphasis on intuitive functions.
Keywords: socionics, information, energy, dichotomies, semantics, informational aspects, features, type of psychic energy.
