    Default Possible analogy between Socionics and Computing.

    I used to be a fan of x86 assembly language, so I can make this analogy.

    The four cognitive processes are :

    Intuition : input, internal ; input of mental images
    Sensing : input, external ; input of sensible things
    Logic : output, internal ; manipulating input
    Ethics : output, external ; expressing input

    The four attitudes are :

    Intuition blocked with Logic : manipulation of mental images
    Intuition blocked with Ethics : expression of mental images
    Sensing blocked with Logic : manipulation of sensible things
    Sensing blocked with Ethics : expression of sensible things

    On a computer :

    Sensing : Keyboard, Mouse, and other external input buffers.
    Ethics : Video, Sound, Printer, and other external output buffers.
    Intuition : CPU registers and other memory devices*, like RAM and HDD.
    Logic : CPU procedures (like MOV, ADD, IN, OUT, JMP, etc).

    * On human beings, memory is more related to Sensing, when referring to sensory memory.

    Sensing blocked with Logic : CPU downloads input buffers.
    Intuition blocked with Logic : CPU processes memory.
    Intuition blocked with Ethics : Output ports downloads memory.
    (Computer's Output and Input ports' direct relationships are either inexistant or very limited...)

    Computer and Human are connected with Sensing and Ethics.

    Here's an hypothetic diagram :



    All of this is hypothetic, incomplete and potentially wrong. Please correct me if it do be the case.

    I like the basic idea. But the concept of input and output is closer to the concept of accepting vs. creative functions. Hence, any function may be the output if it's the creative function.

    Accepting and Producing coincides with Input and Output, but only in Percieving types.
    Judging types have Accepting Output and Producing Input.

    According to myself, Accepting means Rigid, and Producing means Flexible.

    J means Rigid Output, Flexible Input based on Output.
    P means Rigid Input, Flexible Output based on Input.

    This could be explained also like that :

    I means Rigid Fields, Flexible Objects.
    E means Rigid Objects, Flexible Fields.

    Positivism means Rigid positive things (solutions), Flexible negative things (problems).
    Negativism means Rigid negative things (problems), Flexible positive things (solutions).

    That last example could explain how are Negativists deal better with problems than Positivists.
