2. Fractals, as they relate to cognitive styles, are said to be associated with Holographic, not Vortical/Vortex: Source
Another full-scale prototype of holographic thinking - fractal objects. They are open to the mathematician B. Mandelbrot in the 70s of last century. Geometrically fractal - a shape with the blurred outlines of which have self-similar internal structure. For example, a tree, snowflake, coastline, etc. They are characterized by multiple internal investments on the basis of dolls. As a hologram, a small piece of a fractal contains information on all the fractal. Part is always structurally similar to the whole.

Socionic objects and there are fractals. Hence, my concept of personality as a holographic system types that are nested into each other [4]. It conflicts with the dominant flat socionics that defend people, guided by reductionist thinking.

3. I haven't learned about what the 'vortical synergistic' or 'holographic' styles are yet, and I won't be reading about it tonight... but I can tell you that a couple decades ago, Michael Crichton wrote a book called Jurassic Park, which I read, and I watched the movie. I think it might possibly have been that movie that caused me to read a book about fractals. I'm not sure. Maybe my math teacher mentioned them.

Anyway I went through a phase where I felt as though fractals were the answer to 'life, the universe, and everything,' in my late teens, early twenties, whenever that was. I looked at the clouds in the sky and thought they looked like fractals, so fractals had to explain the processes that created clouds, and everything in the universe could be understood that way.

Later on I decided this was taking fractals out of context, and using them for things that were better explained in other ways. I decided fractals weren't quite as useful for explaining natural processes as I had thought they were.

So I still like them as a way to make complex images without doing much work - just program a fractal to draw the trees and the leaves for you, instead of drawing every branch and every leaf yourself, and it will look realistic. But I don't relate them directly to real things anymore.

So anyway, I'm a SLI, and this was a phase I went through, so you can sort of decide for yourself if it has anything to do with Ni, or with the vortical/synergistic/holographic styles, or whatever. Perhaps it's weak Ni role - trying to see too many connections between things that aren't actually connected. It could be anything.

Yeah, fractals were mentioned in the book - I googled it. http://sierra.nmsu.edu/morandi/cours...rkFractal.html

4. I'd say "series" could be a vortical-synergistic concept, and "limit" (functional limit, that is) could equally be one. For the others, I don't think so / I'm not sure.
