The Ukrainian Ethnic Mentality and the Orange Revolution Phenomenon. Part 1. The Socionic Type of the President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko

The article presents a thorough analysis of the socionic type of the Ukrainian president Victor A. Yushchenko, which is supposed to be a logical-sensory extrovert (PS, Administrator, Holmes). Victor Yushchenko's political success is explained by the relationship of psychological complement (duality) between his type and the integral type of the Ukrainian nation, ethical-intuitive introvert (RI, Humanist, Dostoyevsky).
Key words: socionics, personality type, informational metabolism type, Victor Yushchenko, ethnic socionics, Ukrainian mentality, integral type, psychical function, logic, sensation, extroversion, rationality.

The Jung's Basis vs. the Genuine Basis of Socionics, or Partial Reprogramming of the Socionic Functions

The Jung's basis having been analyzed, its efficiency for testing is evaluated. Concepts of partial reprogramming of psychical functions and of 'key points' of the informational metabolism type are introduced. An alternative basis of socionics consisting of Augustinavichiute's and Reinin's dimensions is proposed.
Key words: socionics, informational metabolism type, psychical function, Augustinavichiute's and Reinin's dimensions, Jung's basis, socionic basis, 'key points' of the informational metabolism type.

Name Matters

Based on ideas of semiotics and communication theory two classes of denotations applied in the socionics are described. They are systems of the formulas and the names. Further historical analysis allowed us to select the most widespread systems, whereupon their detailed analysis has been done, which results in the necessity of reevaluation of the problem of denominations in socionics.
Key words: socionics, socionic type, nomenclature, designation, formula, name, denotation, pseudonym, functional-role system, Myers-Briggs typology, semiotics, communication theory.

Mathematical Methods in Socionics

Khrulev O.A.

Reinin traits from the Mathematical Viewpoint

This article develops ideas of Gregory Reinin. It compares methods of determining types by the four basic dichotomies and by the Reinin traits from the mathematical viewpoint. The second method proves to be more preferable, although it requires more significant expenses, while one should be capable of determining 15 criteria instead of 4. Based on this model, a new socionic test can be developed as soon as adequate semantics of the Reinin traits will be found.
Key words: socionics, socionic type, Jung's dimension, Reinin dimension, testing.

Key words: socionics, informational metabolism functions.
