Reinin Theory of Traits

15 traits characteristic for types of informational metabolism and necessary for the detailed types description are described. Consideration is given to the problem of developing a test based on the above traits.
Key words: socionics, psychological types, types of informational metabolism, Jung scale, Reinin traits.


On the Possibilities of Construction of a Psychological Personality Model for Modelling of Interpersonal Relations

A classic treatise covering the basics of socionics. Informational model of human psychics is discussed from the standpoint of the theory of informational metabolism, with consideration of the informational flow aspects, functions of informational metabolism and their physical and psychological contents.
Key words: socionics, psychology, informational model of psychics, informational flow aspects, functions of informational metabolism, types of informational metabolism, psychological types.



Quantum Changes of Informational Medium

The notion is suggested of the quantum change and structuring as per functions of informational metabolism of the informational medium within the collective or society in general. "Primitive" group is considered; it is shown, that 8 functional roles of this group correspond to 8 functions of the model of informational metabolism (A model). E.g.: the "chief of the gang" belongs to the first, i.e. programming function. Attention is given to the roles distribution in administrative group and A model function.
Key words: socionics, quantum changes of the informational medium, primitive group, administrative group, psychology, synergetics, model of informational metabolism.


Societal Personality Status

Being a societal system, the societal life can be divided into 4 components: political, economic, psychological and intellectual, which corresponds to the sensorial, logical, ethical and intuitive subsystems within the theory of informational metabolism (socionics).
Key words: societal system, socionics, political system, economic system, psychological system, intellectual system, social life.


Particularities of Higher Nervous Activity in Sociotypes Within the Scope of Hysterical Psychopathy and Psychoasthenia

Investigation of patient's signal system dependency of personal socionic type. According to experimental data, 75.9% patients with psychoasthenia belong to logic-intuitive introverts (LII), with 31.5% those suffering from hysterical psychopathy belonging to sensorial-ethic extroverts (SEE) and 45.6% - to ethic-intuitive extroverts (EIE). Data of associative experiment held acc. to C. Jung indicate that the second signal system plays a dominant role in the thinking process of LII, whilst the first signal system predominates in SEE thinking. It has been revealed during the experiment that the latency period in each type is changing (getting longer, or shorter) in response to emotional agents regardless of the illness; this can be explained by both polarities in clinical manifestations of each disease and conflict relations between mentioned socionic types.
Key words: hysterical psychopathy, psychoasthenia, socionic types, associative experiment acc. to C. Jung, speech responses, logic-intuitive introvert, sensorial-ethic extrovert, socionics.


TIM of the Man-Object System

Variants of informational interaction between human TIM and surrounding objects, esp. technical systems. It is shown that the effectiveness of such interaction as well as quality of working performance are determined by the degree of correspondence between personality type, proper functions of informational metabolism and their relevance to the particular types of technical systems.
Key words: socionics, type of informational metabolism, "man-object" system, human interaction with technical systems, relevance of the functions of informational metabolism, automation, effectiveness of working performance.

A Picture of Intertype Relations

A detailed description and a proper calculation procedure of the notion of the intertype relations relative intensity ratio are given. It is shown on the basis of sample socionic types that the particularities in intertype relations manifestations from the position depend from relevant type position within the periodic system of the socion (PSS).
Key words: socionics, Yu-model, types of informational metabolism, intertype relations, periodic system of the socion, intertype relations relative intensity ratio.


Philosophic Grounds of Socionics

A historical line of philosophical concepts if taken integrally, proves that it is precisely four-dimensional perceptions mode that is proper for human psyche. The scheme has been reflected in the C. Jung concept and in form of the theory of informational metabolism of psyche has become a foundation of socionics.
Key words: philosophy, human psyche, structuralism, socionics, psychical functions acc. to C. Jung.

Extroverts and Introverts

Differences in perception and modus operandi proper for extrovert and introvert personality types are considered.
Key words: Keywords: socionics, psychology of personality, extroversion, introversion, types of informational metabolism.



Socionics and Philosophy, or The World Never Changes

A new scientific paradigm related to the further broadening of the notions of "information" and "informational interaction" lies in the basis of socionics. Different informational aspects within the scope of the model of informational interaction between objects and subjects are considered. The author suggests a new notion of socionics as a science that investigates fundamental object - socion - and socionic structure of the socium.
Key words: socionics, scientific paradigm, theory of informational metabolism, informational aspects, socionic structure of the socium.
