The Phenomenon of Relative Partner's Perception Dependence from a Motivational Preset of Subject

The effect of relativity of partner's perception and evaluation in intertype relations depending from motivational preset of a perceiving subject is described and explained. Thus, with a positive attitude towards a partner the latter can be perceived, evaluated and described in terms applicable for perceiving partner's dual (activator). This is related to selection (motivational selection) of information about partner coming acc. to the SuperID block by subject's consciousness. If an attitude towards the partner is negative, the latter can be subjectively perceived as a conflicting, or subject to revision person and be described in corresponding terms (as if qualified as the conflicting (subject to revision) person type). In this case, the consciousness of perceiving subject singles out and selects information according to the SuperEGO block. Here the partner's behaviour is tracked according to alike functions, but from the standpoint of a motivational preset having emotional, logical, sensoric, intuitive or combined character.
Key words: Keywords:socionics, psychology, motivational preset, intertype relations, interpersonal relations, subjective perception.

Secondary Preset of Type of Activity

The process of internal semi-dualisation, when a type of informational metabolism acquires a secondary preset of type of activity proper for its semi-dual is discussed. A short description of peculiarities of semi-dual bias in all 16 types is given.
Key words: socionics, type of informational metabolism, preset of type of activity, semi-dual relations.


Theoretical Analysis of the Typological Personality Descriptions

The comparison of the number of factor methodics, conceptions and various personality typologies is proposed.
Key words: socionics, type, psychology, typology.


Socionics Within Group Typology

It is stressed in the article that peculiarities of the consciousness, not only individual, but also that of masses, are differentiated by the perception of the surrounding world. Therefore, methodological use of socionics proves to have success in larger social group studies also. Nonetheless, socionic regularities proper for the individual level and inter-presonal relations can not be mechanically transposed over the social scale where groups and masses are the principal acting agents. Taking into account this social scale, one has to say about the mass-differentiated thinking and select types of group informational metabolism each with its proper particularities in perception of the surrounding world and hierarchy of values. In this case, a political party — a consciously organized and socially active representative of this or that kind of mass consciousness that manifests a certain position with regard to values — appears to be a perfect object of scientific investigation.
Key words: socionics, informational metabolism, mass consiousness, ideology, political party.


The Bouquet Group: Characteristics and Analysis

The A-model and Reinin traits are used here as the basis for investigation of correlation of characteristic traits of Reinin Bouquet small socionic group to super-ego, business and kindred relations in four variants.
Key words: socionics, Reinin groups, Reinin traits, extroversion, introversion, static, dynamics, logic, ethic, rationality, irrationality.


Interaction between Humans and Technical Systems Viewed from Point of the Theory of Informational Metabolism

It is shown that interaction of man with complex technical electronic systems can be adequately described within the socionic theory of informational metabolism developed by A. Augustinavichute in 1968. There are described 16 'operator-system' interaction modes are outlined, and their features are presented. Creation of customisable friendly interface for computing equipment, robots and other electronic systems required for optimal interaction with different individuals bearers of types of informational metabolism (psychological types) is shown as necessary. A necessity of socionics usage for creation of artificial intelligence systems is demostrated.
Key words: socionics, engineering psychology, technical systems, 'operator-system' problem, informational interaction modes, sociology, artificial intelligence.


The Level-Based Conditional Socionics

The author offers a level-based consideration of the model as supportive to the block-based one on the grounds of the original A-model interpretation by M. Kalman. Every level is made of pairs of equally dimensioned informational metabolism functions (acc. A.Bukalov).
Key words: informational metabolism (IM), dimensionality, A-model blocks and levels, conditions.

Notes on Radiation Impact Threat

TIM of radiation impact threat is used as an illustration to an Individual-Danger informational metabolism. The latter permits to broaden the sphere of socionic's application onto professional evaluation of employees abilities as related to a forced victimized behavior in dangerous situations that employees face when fulfilling their professional obligations.
Key words: type of informational metabolism, inter-type relations, logical-ethical, intuitive-sensoric, irrational-rational, extroversial-introversial, perception of radiation impact threat.



Materials for Ukrainian Ethnos Socionic Type Definition

Basic ethnographic notions are discussed and given a socionic interpretation. A hypothesis of ethnos bio-energy substrate existence is formulated.
Key words: socionics, ethnos bio-energy substrate, ethnography, model of ethnos.



Typology and Socionics: Phenomena Studies, Classification and Modelling in Psyche Investigation

Benefits of socionics and its modelling body before classification and typological approaches towards human psyche studiesa are shown.
Key words: socionics, personality types classification, typology, informational model of psyche.



Authorial Study Course

A socionic study course curriculum complete with its basic methodological principles is suggested.
Key words: socionics, study course, methodology, intertype relations, Yu model.



Characteristic Description of the Logical-Sensory Introtim

The article represents a detailed description of the logical-sensory introtim (LF, LSI) using the A-model.
Key words: type of informational metabolism, A-model, socionics, Ego, SuperEgo, Id, SuperId.
