Comparison of Critic and Analyst types

A detailed analysis of the differences in types of intuitive-logical introvert (ILI, TP, Critic) and a logical-intuitive introvert (LII, LI, Analyst) is given. The images of these types are compared with images of INTP and INTJ types from the MBTI typology. Their considerable similarity is shown with some blurring of images of these types in the MBTI.
Keywords: socionics, MBTI, personality type, intuitive-logical introvert (ILI, TP, Critic), logical-intuitive introvert (LII, LI, Analyst), rationality, irrationality, INTP, INTJ.

“Basis of typology” and “basis of description” concepts by the example of quadras’ typology

Concepts “basis of typology” and “basis of description”, introduced by G. Reinin, are considered in the article. As an illustrative example, the typology of quadras is chosen. In this case, all the elements of the 8-element group of all possible sections of the 4-element set have a completely understandable meaning. Not only 2-element “bases of typology”, but also 3-element “bases of description” are explicitly presented. It is shown that the 3-element set of central traits of the quadras’ typology cannot act as a “basis of description”. The results obtained for the quadras’ typology are generalized to the case of a 16-element socion.
Keywords: socion, quadra, typology, basis of typology, basis of description, set, group of central traits, group of all possible sections of the set, generators of the group, identical section of the set, neutral element of the group, existence trait, typological and factor descriptions.

The prevalence of types and quadras: statistics of the Kaliningrad center of socionics and conclusions

The question of the distribution of types and quadras is considered on the basis of the statistics of the Kaliningrad center of socionics collected for almost five years of intensive work. The probable hypotheses about proportions presented as a part of socionic courses, and in projection on society are proposed. The article can be useful for those who deal with the issues of integral socionics, since it suggests, in our opinion, the most plausible to date assumptions about the actual distribution of quadras and types in society.
Keywords: socionics, psychology, psychological type, type diagnostics, practical socionics, quadras, quadral values.

Distribution of types in the society

There are analysed the data of various researchers in Ukraine, Russia, the USA and others on the distribution of socionic types in various professional and social samples. It is shown that the occupationally-social cluster, in which data is collected, has the greatest influence on the distribution of types in the sample. This cluster forms the profession, occupation, property and social status, educational and cultural level of the typed persons. The requirements for a minimum sample for statistical analysis of socionic data are formulated. It is shown that the data obtained and interpreted in a correct way demonstrate the similarity of distributions. The generalization of available information shows that the distribution of socionic types in society tends to be uniform.
Keywords: socionics, socionic type, dual dyad, quadra, club, MBTI, statistics, sampling, uniform distribution, occupational-social cluster.

TIM and love

The concept and manifestations of love are considered and described from the point of view of socionics and the types of information metabolism.
Keywords: socionics, psychology, love, experience, emotion, personality type, type of information metabolism.

Quantum structures and wave processes in living organisms

It is considered and justified the hypothesis of applying the physics of quantum superfluid structures, connected with the functioning of living organisms, to explaining the known experiments of Jiang Kangzheng on the wave transfer of genetic information from one organism to another, as well as the phenomenon of “space memory”. The connection of this hypothesis with the concept of the “morphogenetic field” of Rupert Sheldrake is discussed.
Keywords: superfluidity, quantum structures, phenomenon of life, DNA, morphogenetic field, microwave, electromagnetic radiation.
