Informational Metabolism Model
Fundamentals of Socionics, the theory of psyche informational metabolism, are considered. Separate aspects of informational flow perception and intellect types are described.
Key words: psyche, informational metabolism, information flow, intellect type, Socionics.
Socionics and Ethnic Cultural Types
Considering the concept of culture as integral super-organism allows detecting psycho-informational types of cultures and describing them using socionic methods. Integral types of cultures or ethic mentalities of France, Ancient Athens and Sparta, India and Russia are described.
Key words: socionics, society, psycho-informational system, cultural type, ethnic mentality, totalitarian structures, informational society.
Evolution of Society and Quadral Succession Law
A new law of historical evolution of society as a psycho-informational system is formulated. This law is called Quadral Succession Law, where quadra is a specific group of informational metabolism types. Dynamics of society is described in terms of this law. It is demonstrated that such regularities are possible to trace back at various time spans and make together a hierarchical evolutional structure: from small workgroups up to nations.
Key words: socionics, evolution of society, quadral succession law, sociology, social psychology, informational metabolism type, informational model of psyche.
On Several Regularities of C.G.Jung's Typology
The results of A.Augustinavichiute's researches in socionics are presented (interpretation of intertype relationships as a system of 'strong' and 'weak' interactions, the Socion Cube as informational and reference system, the Periodical System of Socion, which allowed to introduce 4-component binary coding of the types and quantitative correlations represented as agreeability coefficient, forming together a picture of intertype relationships). A hypothesis of possible application spheres of socionics is proposed.
Key words: C.G.Jung, A. Augustinavichiute, socionics, informational metabolism types (IMTs), regularities, System of Relationships, Socion Cube, Periodical System of Socion, IMT code, agreeability coefficient of intertype relationships.
Quadras and Their Social and Psychological Peculiarities
The Quadra is a group of four mutually compatible socionic types united at the first stage of their coexistence by similar characteristics of mutual perception, at the second by mutual vital values, at the third by the common social role and at the fourth by their initial development point (psychological age). Psychical and informational peculiarities of the quadras, their social roles and dynamics of succession of these roles in the society are considered.
Key words: socionics, psychology, psychological type, small group, intertype relationships, quadral succession law.
The Concept of Socionics
It is proposed to consider socionics as a combination of knowledge about external and internal manifestations of human psyche. Directions of application of socionic technologies in education, management and social reforming are described.
Key words: socionics, psychology, social and psychological human life, education, pedagogy, personnel service, management.
Socionic accentuations of the informational metabolism type (IMT) are considered, which make personality demonstrate symptoms and characteristic traits, up to physiognomic similarity, of another informational metabolism type, e.g. a dual one. Such accentuation may take place for all kinds of relationships up to the conflict ones.
Key words: socionics, psychology, personality type, subtype, socionic accentuations, informational metabolism type criteria, physiognomic similarity.

Compatibility and Duality
New binary dimensions of personality called initiality / terminality and ignorativity / connectivity are found. Subtypes of the socionic types created at the intersections of these scales, as well as relations and interaction between them are described.
Key words: personality dimensions, socionics, psychology, typologies, dominant subtype, creative subtype, harmonizing subtype, normative subtype, intertype relationships.

The Concept of Energetic Exchange in the A-Model and Building Two Basic Vertical Subtypes
Correlation between the A.Augustinavichiute's informational model of psyche with neural physiology is considered. Using 32 personality subtypes is proposed. Several peculiarities of their occupational attitudes are described.
Key words: socionics, psychology, personality type, subtype, temperament, neural physiology, occupational choice.
Functions and Perception of Information
Detailed description of the mechanism of information perception and processing by human psychical functions is presented according to the informational model of psyche (A.Augustinavichiute's model).
Key words: socionics, psychical function, informational metabolism function, information flow, informational metabolism type, rationality, irrationality.
Perception of World Aspects
Semantics of informational flow aspects - sensation, intuition, logic and ethic in extroverted and introverted variants, their verbal and non-verbal components, and levels of psychological perception are thoroughly considered.
Key words: socionics, informational metabolism type, sensing, logic, intuition, emotions, extroversion, introversion.
Determining Sergey Korolev's Socionic Type
Detailed research of personality and activities of Sergey Korolev, the Designer-in-Chief of Soviet aerospace ships, demonstrated his being a representative of the socionic type sensory-logical extrovert (SLE).
Key words: socionics, psychology, space, Sergey Korolev, action attitude: pragmatic (sensing + logical), workgroup, quadra.
Socionics in Creation of Learning Groups
Peculiarities of behavior of pupils of various personality types - sensory, intuitive, logical and ethical - are considered. Advices are proposed concerning creation of learning groups and working with them.
Key words: Socionics, psychological types, sensing type, intuitive type, logical type, ethical type, pedagogy.
On Several Principles of Developing Tests Identifying the Human Informational Metabolism Type and the Methodology of Typing
Several variants of building tests identifying the informational metabolism type are considered. Correlation between the test preciseness and the socionic type of its author is discussed.
Key words: socionics, psychology, testing, informational metabolism type, psychical functions.
Churyumov S.I., Vakulenko I.N.
Using the Method of Expert Evaluation in Determining Socionic Types
Peculiarities of determining a person's informational metabolism type by a group of experts are analyzed; working style of such a group is discussed.
Key words: socionics, psychology, personality type, expert group, tests.
Causes of mistakes in determining personality types in socionics
When an expert attempts to determine other person's informational metabolism type, he most often makes mistakes in estimating the aspects which are weakest for his own type, few-dimensional from the viewpoint of information. A method of reducing such testing mistakes is proposed.
Key words: socionics, psychology, testing, determining type, dimensionality of informational metabolism functions, logic, ethic.
