Application of the Projective Drawing Methodology "Unreal Animal" in Determining Personality Types

A projective methodology analyzing Unreal Animal Drawings is described. The possibilities of its application are analyzed for determining the informational metabolism type. This methodology has been checked at the selection of 800 people and can serve as basis of determining the informational metabolism type.
Key words: socionics, psychology, projective methods, drawing test, informational metabolism functions, psychical functions, Ego-projection.

Target Diades

Combining the socionic personality types into multiple target groups especially efficient for certain tasks is proposed. Role of combining information metabolism elements in solving practical tasks is considered.
Key words: management, socionics, personality types, psychology, target groups, informational metabolism aspects.

The Problem of Differentiation Criteria in Psychology and Socionics

There is a problem of differentiation criteria in psychology, which arises from their logical non-precision or vagueness. The differentiation criteria become concrete only when they correlate with their position in the model of psyche. Based on the principle of dualism a hypothesis is proposed and partially substantiated on the unambiguous correspondence between the sets of personality types, intertype relationships and differentiation criteria. An idea is proposed and substantiated on the possibility of creating models of each criterion, which will allow eliminating its vagueness.
Key words: socionics, psychology, type criteria, personality traits, intertype relationships, informational metabolism types, psyche informational model.


Stovpyuk M.F., Lytov D.A.

On Semantic Contents of Reinin traits

The article considers so called Reinin traits, i.e. binary dimensions of the socionic personality types extending the 4 Jungian dichotomies (the latter called Jungian basis). Discrepancy in their semantic is considered in details. Also considered are the causes of the "privileged status" of the Jungian basis among all other bases created by Reinin criteria.
Key words: Augustinavichiute, typology basis, Gulenko, dichotomy, mathematics, Reinin traits, Reinin, socionics, test, personality type, Jung.

Litvinenko I.Yu.

Following M.Stovpyuk's and D.Lytov's Article "On Semantic Contents of Reinin traits"

The article of M.Stovpyuk and D.Lytov On Semantic Contents of Reinin traits is analyzed. It is concluded that the issue raised is not topical for socionics, by contrast to human science based on the dimensions, and that the critical contents of the article is of destructive essence.
Key words: socionics, type theory, Reinin traits, socionic A-Model.

Sayenko V.V.

On Critics of Semantic Contents of Reinin traits

Under consideration is the article of M.Stovpyuk and D.Lytov On Semantic Contents of Reinin traits criticizing discrepancy of semantic essence of these dimensions and maintaining they are useless for determining personality types. It is proposed to split the dimensions hierarchically into fundamental, macro- and micro- ones. Recommendations are given on using visual memory in the learning process, several details concerning quadras and progress loops are mentioned.
Key words: basis of Jung and Augustinavichiute, dichotomies, informational functions, quadras, social progress loop, A-Model, Reinin traits, socionics, informational metabolism type (personality type).

Karpenko O.B.

Reinin traits: Origin, Existence, Application

It is demonstrated that the existence of the dimensions Extroversion/Introversion and Rationality/Irrationality and the fact of splitting the Socion into Quadras inevitably result in revealing Reinin traits. Both Reinin traits and the A-Model manifest the united whole structure of the Socion and the informational metabolism type through different formal descriptions.
Key words: socionics, socion, binary dimension, quadra, quadral dimensions, diade, diade dimensions, Reinin traits, rationality, irrationality, extroversion, introversion.

Trekhov A.V.

Reinin traits: What Is Myth and What Is Reality

The article of M.Stovpyuk and D.Lytov On Semantic contents of Reinin traits is discussed, its several statements are criticized. It is emphasized that brightness of dimensions is possible to evaluate for real people, by contrast to the ideal informational metabolism type.
Key words: socionics, Reinin traits, personality psychology, typology, informational metabolism type, Jung scales.

Shulman G.A.

Several Words on Reinin traits

The article considers several manifestations of the following Reinin traits: static/dynamic, leftist/rightist, questim/declatim, positivist/negativist, aristocrat/democrat. Several aspects of application of the author's semantic test for determining personality type are described.
Key words: socionics, psychology, Reinin traits, Shulman semantic test, informational metabolism type.

Trekhov A.V.

On Reinin traits

The article raises the issue of semantic contents of the Reinin traits. A model is proposed in which Reinin traits (including Jungian dimensions) are derived from personal traits. It is demonstrated that such model implies broader understanding the concept of informational metabolism type. It is demonstrated that the concept of function (program, suggestion etc.) should be applied to generalized aspects. A system of subtypes is proposed and the question of intertype relationship within this system is asked.
Key words: Reinin traits, Jungian dimensions, multiple dimensions, accent, determining dichotomy, verification dichotomy, intermediate personality type, key personality type, redundant personality type, aspect, generalized aspect, basic dimensions, basic aspects, functions, intertype relationships, subtypes, biquadra.
