I've been working on a complete structural map of socionics for a few years and it it finally to a point that it is worth sharing. A few of you may be familiar with an old pyramid diagram someone posted from one of my facebook groups. This is the first part of my article explaining how they work.
I want to emphasis that this is pure classical socionics. I have not added anything new to the theory. These diagrams are simple a tool for understanding Model A, or any other similar model.
I invented these diagrams so the average person can use the dichotomy structure correctly. I originally had a more mathematical focus, but after talking to Gulenko and Reinin who told me they were not familiar with the math, I decided I should take a common sense approach instead and leave the math out. I haven't decided to what extent I will talk about the formal structure at the end. I'm posting this here to see if it make sense so far and I'll make changes based of your feedback.
This is the first part of my draft. I expect to delete this thread and start a new one once it is completed
Any suggestions appreciated!
I've rewritten the introduction thanks to a conversation I had with QuickTwist. I've also added page numbers and a table of contents
I realized I was using the term "small group" in the wrong way, and have changed it to tetrachotomy. I've refined the majority of this first section, so it should be getting pretty rock solid. I also added a few things like a list of each type in pyramid form
I made an excel program that calculates all this stuff for you. I'll probably make a new thread for it, but here it is in the mean time. I think it only works if you download it.
