One More Reason in Favor of Each Person's Using All the Types of Thinking

By the example of the relationship of contrast (total contrariness) peculiarities of different thinking styles described in terms of the information metabolism model (Model A) are demonstrated.
Key words: socionics, Model A, readjustment pair, the relationship of contrast (total contrariness).

On Ternary Structure of Intertype Relationships

It is demonstrated that traditional representation of intertype relationships in socionics as those existing in a pair of people is idealization which misses the third factor, influence of the surrounding society, which changes pair interaction of people into triple interactions. The ternary nature of intertype relationships is an important factor, which influences the characteristics of relations between people, and is evolutionally predetermined.
Key words: socionics, intertype relationships, pair relationship, triple relationship, informational metabolism type.

Seven Theses on the Necessity of Application of Socionics in the Pedagogical Process

During teaching pupils permanently encounter a number of obstacles inherent in this process, which distract their attention in course of information perception. The attention as such is a part and parcel of the informational metabolism. The necessity, which points out determining main tasks and directions of the analysis of socionic aspects of the teaching process as an information metabolism process, has matured. This article presents seven theses, which clarify this necessity.
Key words: information, informational metabolism type, communication model, training, socionics, pedagogy.

The Problem of Suicidal Risk among Persons of Call-Up Age: Analytical View

The article discusses the possibility of detecting young people's aptitude to suicide using both character accentuations and the theory of informational metabolism (socionics) and socionic personality types. A concept of pre-suicidal syndrome is introduced, whose detection can allow determining individual's aptitude towards suicide.
Key words: suicide, psychical infantilism, psychopathology, accentuation of character, socionics, psychological type.

Analytical Psychology

Kameneva I.P.

On Symbols of Psychical Energy and Some of Its Metamorphoses

C.G.Jung's ideas on psychical energy are considered in the context of his psychoanalytical experience set forth in his work Libido, Its Metamorphoses and Symbols. Symbols of psychical energy indicate the direction of its movement from the mother to other objects and images, which in general reminds dynamics of Kundalini energy in Tantra Yoga. In A.Augustinavichiute's model the scheme of informational metabolism of each type determines specifics of its energetic potential and in separate cases also aptitude towards certain esoteric practices.
Key words: symbols, consciousness, unconscious, archetypes, psychical energy (libido), system of Chakras, psychical functions, informational metabolism, energetic metabolism, mental loop, vital loop, socionics.

Psychical States in Socionics

A method of considering states of psyche using socionic methodology is proposed. In contrast to psychical states, which can be represented in terms of emotions and feelings only, the socionic approach allows extending their range and requires a new name for them: informational-psychological states. V.V.Gulenko's view on states as single-aspect is criticized. Instead, states are considered through pairs of aspects processed in Models A of informational metabolism types by multidimensional informational metabolism functions. In this regards psychical states are distributed into extroverted, corresponding to the "black" aspects, and introverted, corresponding to the "white", according to M.M.Kalman's approach. Differences between states corresponding to different levels created by pairs of homo-dimensional informational metabolism functions are considered. Such states for each pair of aspects with regard to rearrangement are deciphered.
Key words: socionics, psychology, informational flow aspects, states (conditions), homo-dimensional informational metabolism functions, informational-energetic level.

Saenko V.V.

Aphoristic Sayings on the Third Function

Manifestations of bi-dimensionality (according to A.Bukalov) of the third function in the Model A of the informational metabolism type are considered.
Key words: socionics, informational functions, dimensionality of functions, Model A, social role, norms, socialization, social expectations, collectivism, individualism, development of personality.

Dubrov Ya.A.

Modeling of the Holone Communication in the Psycho-Informational Space

A concept of Holone - a system of three hypostases and three essences, which evolves and interacts with other similar beings - is introduced. Peculiarities of holone communication are considered in the psycho-informational Bukalov's B-Space related to A.Augustinavichiute's socionics.
Key words: holone, psycho-informational space, socionics, intertype relationships, psycho-types, quantum physics.


Foris Yu.B.

Some Extensions to the Theory of Informational Metabolism

Possible development of socionic terminology is described from the viewpoint of socionic mechanics, together with determining the informational metabolism type by results of activity of its bearer.
Key words: socionics, informational metabolism function, psychology, informational metabolism type, Model A.

Historical Researches

Bukalov A.V.

On the Problem of New Dating of the Trojan War

Mistakes of traditional dating of the Trojan War (1250-1184 B.C.) and subsequent invasion of Dorians into Peloponnesus are demonstrated. Calculation by nine continuous genealogies of Greek kings with regard to natural and reliable biological terms of change of generations allows to date the end of the Trojan War 988±20 B.C. This agrees with the chronological gap (245 years) found by the author in the Paros Chronicle, which gives somewhat different, but close in time date of the end of the Trojan War: 964±15 B.C. The obtained result shifts the Mycenaean Greek and Mediterranean chronology due to shrinkage of the Dark Age by 200-245 years.
Key words: Trojan War, Greece, Dorians, Heraklides, People of the Sea, Paros Chronicle, chronology, genealogy.
