    Key words: socionics, psychology, mental functions, the functions of information metabolism, information model of the psyche (model A), the dimensions of informational metabolism functions in A. B. Bukalov, соционика, размерность функций, Эглит, информационный метаболизм
    Abstract: In this article, we will describe manifestations of dimensions of functions of IM, which were introduced by A. V. Bukalov. This concept will be illustrated by examples of statements and actions that demonstrate the differences in dimensionality of functions processing the same information aspects.

    The model of A. Augustinavichiute (model A) in 1989 was augmented by the theory of dimensionality of functions.

    Wikisocion - Communication Styles

    Passionate style: ExFx (SEE, IEE, ESE, EIE)

    Passionate communication style group is comprised of ethical extroverted types: IEE, SEE, EIE, ESE. This group is most confident in their attitudes towards other people and not afraid to show their likes and dislikes and ethical evaluations. These sociotypes are the most sociable in informal contact.

    In conversation, their position is an active search for feelings. They bring emotions to people around them. In their life scenarios, it is typical of them to marry earlier ...

    Signs of Functions of Model A

    Keywords: TIM model of the psyche, mental function, signs of mental functions, the concept of signs of mental functions, aspects of information flow, соционика, знаки психических функций, Эглит, информационный метаболизм.

    Abstract: In this publication, we will examine the theoretical background, peculiarities of manifestations, and practical observations of signs functions of Model A. The results of this investigation will be illustrated by real examples taken from typing practice. We has also included practical recommendations for the experts on use of signs of socionics functions for the purpose of verification of TIMs.

    The signs of the functions are an important element of the type model. Initially, signs of the functions have been introduced to match the observations of the functioning of psyche of representatives of different TIMs with the theoretical model [1]. If we draw an analogy between mental functions and certain kind of virtual processors of information, the signs of the functions would pertain to the "operating system" of these processors that provides for the functioning of "working programs" of mental functions which process the information of certain aspects. It is important to note that the information aspects in themselves, as constituents of the informational flow, do not have signs in the sense that will be discussed below [4].

    Substantiation of sign notations presents a known difficulty, since it is tied to the system interactions in the socion, specifically, the operation of octave rings of the socion (groups of asymmetric interactions of TIMs − see [4, Sec. 8.3]). At present time (2007), there exists no clear theoretical basis for sign notation. There is also no consensus on sign definitions and implications. Despite this, the concept of sign notation has taken root, because it works well on a practical level and can explain phenomena of information processing that cannot be explained otherwise.

    However, not all socionics schools interpret and apply functional signs in the same ways. Due to different understandings of signs by different socionics schools, it is difficult, and sometimes even impossible, to approach this topic outside of the paradigm of a particular approach.

    The purpose of this article is to review the manifestations of signs of functions that have been observed in typing

    The Centripetal Law of Communication.
    Estimate Your Chances in Business Competition

    Victor Gulenko, April 25, 1998, Kiev.
    Translated by Dmitri Lytov, December 2005.
    Translator’s notes are given in italics.

    Even possessing enormous capacities of memorization, our brain “prefers” to compress information in order to fit it into the narrow space of our operational attention. The volume of unconscious information is huge, but our consciousness can master it only through consolidation into comparatively small number of rationally convoluted concepts.

    Only in course of time and with some galling experience many business people acquire a simple set of criteria that allow evaluating people and situations. Growth of vital experience is inevitably accompanied with more compact convolution of information and mastering of operations of its qualitative processing. In this work I would like to show that typology, as a specific form of classification, helps to significantly accelerate this painful process.

    Types of information metabolism and situations.

    An attempt to analyze behavior of people of different types of information metabolism in some typical situations might be presented as some kind of uniquely structured description of types, the latter being examined through the prism of interactions with the environment.

    To begin with, let us examine a spectrum of situations theoretically, taking into account the eight elements of information metabolism (IM):

    Positive subject intuition (+). Integrity of the inner situation: good, pleasant mood, harmony with the external world; fun, happiness; plunging in thought.

    Inverse subject intuition (-). Infringement of the inner peace: irritation, moral discomfort; internal contradictions.

    Positive objective intuition (+). Integrity of the environment: everything is known from beginning to end; the world as if rolls on straight tracks; there is a schedule; the world is predictable, people are predictable, too.

    Inverse objective intuition (-). Infringement of the integrity of environment: unexpectedness, breach of schedule; the result of events is unpredictable, or an unexpected event.

    Positive subjective sensing (+). Various bodily sensations: that of being strong and healthy, taste, color, smells. The practice of cleansing and healing techniques and diets; attention to health. Following fashions in the area of health.

    Inverse subjective sensing (-). Indisposition, pain, hunger, fatigue, unpleasant sensations of other origin.

    Positive objective sensing (+). Form, fashion, appearance. Movement, action, activity. Skills. Will.

    Inverse objective sensing (-). Beautiful/ugly (judgment). Physical violence, danger.

    Positive objective logic (+). External circumstances, events, facts. Personal space. Technology of arrangement. Statistics. The external world is the objective reality. Matter. Documents. Rules, laws. Material values. External social norms.

    Inverse objective logic (-). Loss of values, money. Infringement of the order. Natural disasters. Traffic jams. “Facts are the objective reality.” Numbers, statistics. Loss of territory. Car breakage; TV, home appliance breakage. Dirt in the hall on the carpet.

    Positive subject logic (+). Understanding, hierarchy, structure.

    Inverse subject logic (-). Difficult task; a challenge to the intellect. Necessity to figure out and understand.

    Positive objective ethics (+). External relationships. Relationships with people. People’s attitude to me. Negotiations. Meetings with friends. Fellowship with close ones.

    Inverse objective ethics (-). Conflicts. Intrigues. Slander. Quarrel with near and dear ones. Conflicts at work.

    Positive subject ethics (+). My attitude to people. Necessity to express my attitude, opinion, feelings of love. Pleasant/unpleasant. My evaluation of a thing, an object, a person.

    Inverse subject ethics (-). I abhor, reject, detest.

    Formally, this list can be regarded as an exhaustive one; however, at the same time it is rather abstract, remote from real life.

    Let us pick an example from the abundance of daily situations and examine the `0:00 ...
