Fourth quadra (Delta) - types, values, mission of quadra in socionics
Quadra representatives: types Administrator (LSE), Master (SLI), Adviser (IEE) and Humanist (EII)
Quadra Delta is somewhat reminiscent of Beta in its commitment to public ownership. However, property becomes moderate in terms of the degree of socialization - not state, but corporate. It is governed territorially, not departmental. Over time, the Delta is naturally formed into a society of self-governing territories that are relatively small in size.
Socio-economic aspect. The fourth quadra (Delta) - values, the mission of the quadra. Humanitarian socionics
The Delta quadra has its own managers, these are the types Administrator (LSE) and Master (SLI). But they manage not departmental and centralized, but locally, taking into account the regional specifics. If local self-government is placed in the hands of the second quadra, then feudal fragmentation will inevitably occur - ignoring the central laws, leading to separatism. Territorial self-government, safe for the integrity of the state, is the function of the fourth quadra.
Thus, there is a certain contradiction between the departmental management principle of Beta and the territorial principle of the Delta. There are people who intuitively understand how the conflict between beta and gamma values can be administratively resolved. A. Solzhenitsin's struggle for the revival of the zemstvos, the rudiments of the Delta Quadra in Russian life in the 19th century, proceeds along this line.
Since I attribute this Russian writer to the EIE, I may be asked: how can a representative of Beta stand up for Delta? - There is nothing surprising. The values of one's own quadra lie in the realm of the unconscious. And what is deliberately declared is largely a matter of the free will of the person himself.
Power in the Delta belongs to the elders - experienced people who have earned the recognition of their many years of work. For this form of government, the term meritocracy has been adopted. True, there is also a negative version of it - gerontocracy. A vivid example of gerontocracy - the "Kremlin elders" who ruled the Soviet Union after N. Khrushchev - have not yet been erased in the memory of my generation. But this is Delta in Beta, that is, just the last stage in the evolution of power in a totalitarian state.
If for a gamma society the term consumer society is suitable as a key characteristic, then for a delta such a concept will be an ecological society. The bulk of the population of such a society will not live in a city, but not in a village, but in a suburb, an urban-type settlement, etc. In an ecological society, a person behaves not as a ruler of nature, but as a necessary element of biogeocenosis.
Spiritual and psychological aspect. The fourth quadra (Delta) - values, the mission of the quadra. Humanitarian socionics
Values of the types of the Fourth Quadra: Humane labor
Its cornerstone is real, not declarative humanism. A comparison of the Beta Mentor type with the Delta Humanist type reveals what lies behind this concept. The mentor preaches universal human moral principles by word (remember the Gospel of John: in the beginning there was a word ...), in fact he often violates them. A Humanist is unlikely to make a successful public preacher, since nature has not endowed him with eloquence. But in everyday affairs, he is closer than any other sociotype to the categorical imperative: act towards your neighbor as you would like him to act towards you.
In Quadra Delta there is no Scientist attitude that dominates the stage of industrialism. The reliance on science as a driving force of social progress is leaving, hopes are being placed on the moral sense of man himself. Delta will be completely different from the world of robots, clones, mutants and similar Scientist products that are stuffed with American gamma films about the future. The stream of scientific discoveries will dry up.
Religion will come to the fore again. However, it is no longer a question of confessional religiosity based on dogma and church organization, and therefore has little in common with delta values. Religion will be more like neo-paganism, something like a belief in "cosmic intelligence."
Socionics. Duality and a cozy family alone are clearly not enough for a person to experience the fullness of life.
Socion in Humanitarian Socionics
Delta types are united by moderate collectivism. They adhere to an orientation towards a time-honored tradition. Their life is organized within the middle groups, existing as a system of small groups. It is in such a society that the maximum level of mental comfort can be achieved. Duality and a cozy family alone are clearly not enough for a person to experience the fullness of life.
For the first time, the delta trend was vaguely captured by the anarchists of the 19th century. Peter Kropotkin, in particular, believed that in the state as a bureaucratic mechanism for coordinating the behavior of people with opposite interests due to their different social status, there would be no need. The future will belong to small teams united by a common goal. In this case, cooperation will prevail over rivalry. In our century, psychologist and philosopher E. Fromm wrote a lot about the transition from Gamma to Delta. He dreamed of such a structure of society, which he called "humanistic idealism." He imagined this painful process as a change in the attitude towards possession (centrality) by the attitude towards being (peripherality). In socionic terms, the nonviolent "being" of people who voluntarily abandoned the "grasping" F-values of people - this is society,
Another example of a primary island of humane and labor values is the trip on the Ra boat across the ocean by Thor Heyerdahl. His team can be seen as a small delta model of interpersonal coexistence. From this, however, it does not follow in any way that Thor Heyerdahl himself "by blood" is a type of Quadra Delta. He is just a pioneer grope for a nonviolent cooperative ecological society of Quadra Delta.
