Minaiev Yu.P.

Group of transformations of 3D models personality types and its connection with classical intertype relations

Model’s A 3D version is considered in the article. The cell centers, which are filled with symbols of informational aspects, are mapped to the ordered triples of Cartesian coordinates. Permitted options for placement of symbols of IA in Model’s A cells were interconnected with symmetry transformations operators of tetragonal prism. These operators were put in one-to-one correspondence to operators of classical intertype relations.
Keywords: Model A, classical intertype relations, the operators of geometric transformations, symmetry groups, group isomorphism, matrix formalism, the canonical representation of intertype relations operators.

Provides a rationale for the number of theses or allusion to the rationale in other works of the authors. The article calls for constructive discussion.

On the article “Back to Jung: are the authors of this article socionics?” by O.V. Arinicheva and A.V. Malishevskii

Methodological analysis of the main provisions of the article O.V. Arinicheva and A.V. Malishevskii “Back to Jung …” shows that the authors, reducing socionics to some own version of the typology, simplify a number of provisions of socionics, refusing to consider the information model of the psyche created by A. Augustinavichute and directly stemming from the work of C.G. Jung. In particular, using the table of intertype relationships in practice, they ignore the fact that it can be obtained only by using information models of the psyche and considering their interactions. At the same time, they, offering their simplified model as a return to Jung's ideas, also ignore some of his own ideas, in contradiction to the stated thesis. This, in turn, can affect the degree of effectiveness of the practical methods developed by them. At the same time, many years of practical experience of the authors, their achievements in working with aviation collectives deserve attention and understanding and use within the framework of all theoretical and practical socionics.
Keywords: socionics, Jung's typology, civil aviation, personality type, information model of psyche, personality psychology.
