Building Workgroups with Regard to the Agreeability Coefficient in Small Socionic Groups

Group effects of small groups of "equilibrium" and "resonance" are described, which have never been previously mentioned in the socionic literature. Analysis of correspondence of values of the agreeability coefficient in small social groups is performed. Shepetko's methodology is used to calculate the agreeability coefficient. Results of the research have demonstrated mutual dependence between the value of the agreeability coefficient and the observed group effects. A hypothesis is made about the possibility of application of this methodology to calculate agreeability of any group as a whole, as well as for its particular members.
Key words: socionics, small groups of sociotypes, agreeability coefficient, group effects, Shepetko's methodology.

Logos: Archetypes of Speech and Infinite Dimensionality of Semantic Spaces. Part I: Potentiality of Glosses

Genesis of the Word, as well as processes taking place in the consciousness at the level of appearance of thought are considered. Such key terms as Logos, gloss, subgloss are developed. The influence of the virtual field of consciousness, which exists around each word and each thought, on the process of word and speech creation, is demonstrated. It is pointed at the real possibility of managing human consciousness from non-realized levels, which are present also in virtual metal fields of glosses. Ways of recognizing such influence are proposed. It is also proposed to determine the sphere of knowledge that lies in the common space of linguistics, psychology and cosmogony of consciousness as Linguosophy. The objective of Linguosophy is comprehensive consideration and study of phenomenology of thought, word, speech and language in the context of internal human and general planetary processes on a scale of cosmogony.
Key words: speech, word, attention, psychology, linguistics.
