Psychophysiologicaly caused model of an information metabolism (model "T") as a basis of psychological intertype differences and intertype relationships

In development of traditional for socionics of A.Augustinavichute model (models "A") the psychophysiological model "T", using not 8 but only C.Jung's 4 psychic functions where, however, everyone is characterized at once by two parameters: thresholds on exaltation and inhibition. In addition to partial thresholds of functions the common properties of force-weakness of the individual on exaltation and inhibition are specified identical to all functions. The common threshold on exaltation determines which of four functions will be program and which - mobilization. The common threshold on inhibition sets accentuation of TIM. Extraversion and extratimness are disjointed by model and appeared quasi orthogonal properties, the first (for the individual as a whole or his separate functions) corresponds to high thresholds on the exaltation, the second - to low thresholds on inhibition. Extra/intro-version of first two functions coincides with extra/intro-version of the individual, last two - are opposite to him; extra- or introtimness corresponds to standard socionic "color" of functions (black functions are extratimed, that is they have low thresholds of inhibition). The quantity of degrees of freedom of model increases (in comparison with model "A") from 4 up to 5 and becomes adequate to the standard five-factorial model of the person. The model "T" corresponds to experimental data, is simple in comprehension and application, binds in much clearer and integrated picture the numerous facts of socionics, differential psychology, psychophysiology and physiology higher nervous activity (HNA), easily explains psychological and socionic regularity, including difficultly deduced from model "A" (including properties of TIMs, intertype relationships and the content of a part of Reining signs ); it also predicts new regularities. Besides , the model eliminates series of collisions of modern differential psychophysiology and resolves the problems of physiology HNA which has arisen in researches of scientific school Pavlov-Teplov-Nebylitsyn.
Key words: socionics, psychophysiology, psychophysics, physiology of HNA, psychological types, model of the personality, extraversion , a threshold of sensitivity, exaltation of the analyzer, inhibition of the analyzer.

Intertype Relationships

In addition to the contacts entered by A.Augustinavichute between TIMs on functions of the identical form and extra/introversion interaction on functions of one form, but various extra/introversion is offered. The description of a relationships is resulted from the point of view of the entered interactions. It is shown, that intertype relationships in the Socion form system.
Key words: socionics, intertype relationships, strong ("orders") and weak ("requests") interactions, system of relationships.

About correct understanding of dichotomy logic / ethics

Typical distortions in understanding of dichotomy logic/ethics are examined. Correct definition of this dichotomy is given.
Key words: socionics, dichotomy, logic, ethics.


Yermak V.D.

Art of questions and some mistakes of interviewing during identification of TIM

Features of identification of TIM psyche are considered by a method of interview. The list of the most important qualities of the expert-socionist, and also the basic mistakes supposed in interview by entry-level interviewers is resulted. The knowledge of TIM model of psyche and skill of the interviewer to ask questions selecting the formulation corresponding to psyche function is one of the major conditions in many respects determining interview productivity.
Key words: socionics, type of an information metabolism, TIM of psyche, interview, method, art of questions.

Petrov A.Yu., Shmojlova A.A.

Research of socionic type of John Ronald Reuel Tolkien

On the basis of the analysis of the biography and creativity of J.R.R.Tolkiena on Jung dichotomizing attributes and functions of model "A" is shown to his membership to socionic type ILE (Finder). Brief discussion of creativity J.R.R.Tolkiena is given in a context of a problem of quadra values.
Key words: socionics, socionic type, quadras, quadra values.

Definition of classical music TIM as object of an information metabolism

It is offered and proved that the hypothesis about the type of an information metabolism of classical music is described by sensor-ethical extraversion structure.
Key words: socionics, classical music, typology of K.G. Jung, Reinin signs.

Bukalov A.V.

Whether it is possible to determine TIM of music and other general concepts?

The opportunity of definition of type of an information metabolism of such phenomenon as music or speech is discussed. Ambiguity of such definition is shown.
Key words: socionics, information structure of musical composition, speech.
