Problem of Variety Inside a Type of Informational Metabolism

The variety observed within the informational metabolism type can be partially explained in terms of subtypes, communicative models and socionic accentuations. The problem of entirety of socionic representation of the human character can be resolved on the basis of the principle of fractal nature of the psycho-informational space postulated by A.V. Bukalov. In this case all existing personality typologies are fractal resonances of the primary psyche structure.
Key words: socionics, personality type, psyche structure, psycho-informational fractal space, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Kettell test.

Blocks and Levels of the A-Model: Different Nature of Links Between Informational Metabolism Functions

A concept of causal and non-causal links between informational metabolism functions of the A-Model is proposed. Characteristics of an elementary information processing act involving 4 functions are considered.

Graphical Interpretation of Psyche Structure

Possibilities of personality psychical space mapping and symbolic representation are considered. Generalized graphical interpretation of personality structure based on Jungian concepts is proposed. The achieved graphic includes a diagram of Jung's psychical sphere and at the same time reproduces structure of the Mandala considered by Jung as the Entirety Archetype. Psychical space is represented as a system of associative circles linked by informational channels. A specific of different psychological types is determined by activity of different circles and grade of resonance interaction between them.
Key words: psychical space, Mandala, psyche functions, informational channels, associative circles, adaptation, resonance.

On Socionic Metrology or Socionicometry

A concept of quantity of latent (i.e. failed to be implemented) values (LVQ) is proposed for studying relations in matrimonial pairs. Materials of 508 respondents display correlation between LVQ, evaluation of quality of relationships and the intertype relationships in socionics. It is proposed to implement attestation of methodologies of forecasting relationships between people.
Key words: socionics, personality typology, intertype relationships, methodology, matrimonial pairs, family relations, latent values quantity.

Stationary algorithmic model of social relations

In the article have been proposed a mathematical model of society as categories, which objects are the people, and morphisms is relations between them. The article's algorithms make possible to uniquely decompose a society to separate stratums, to choose a social influential members totality, to calculate influence kernel. For all developed algorithms the program realizations are created which can be applied for a solution of the customer problems. The offered algorithms are applied only to democratic society.
Key words: category, object, morphism, algorithm.
