# Thread: Socionics Contribution, Dynamic Mech Model of the Model-A

1. ## Socionics Contribution, Dynamic Mech. Model of the Model-A

Heres a little somethin somethin I cooked up. It's basically a mechanical model for the model-A. The dynamics are a bit complex if they were to actually be physically modeled. For the J/P both X's cris cross. By the way when I mentioned that model A isnt absolute but analog... i meant that based on visualizing it as a multidimensional mechanical model that can vary in angle of rotation.  Reply With Quote

2. ## Here is a formula I worked out for calculating quantized vectors for each function of the model-A. V1 through V4 represent socionics type letters where a possitive value indicates E neg. indicates I, possitive N neg. S, possitive T neg. F, possitive P neg. J. The formula if used as a function returns the function and its orientation. This formula can also be modified to give continuous output for a multidimensional continuous personality type spectrum.

3. ## Hmm....

...what the fuck does this all mean?  Reply With Quote

4. ## The first diagram shows how to mechanically transform the model-a from type to type continuously so that it doesnt jump around, so that you can have inbetween types with model-a. in the second post I wrote a mathematical formula for generating model-a data from the 4 type letters, if the function f(x) is modified then you can generate the continuous model-a for any type/inbetween type. i hope that explains it if its still not clear please ask specifics and I'll do my best to explain.

BTW: in the second post where you see the formula, the T S N F e and i are basically vectors, treat them as variables, the E I scale goes from negative infinity to positiv einfinity and same with N/S T/F P/J

The formula will actually return the cog function as a text if worke dout propperlyh... for ENTP the first formula would return N + e and the second formula T + i  Reply With Quote

5. ## Yet another idea... why move the functions around within the model-A when the model-A can be moved about a multidimensional representation of the functions. I'll look into this when I get a chance and will try to assemble a dynamic model.  Reply With Quote

7. ## I get the first model, but since I suck at math I remain at a loss as to what the second model is attempting to demonstrate. Sorry.

In hopes that this statement will alleviate some of the confusion, the first model depics the model-A of the ENTp and what would occur if one switched one pair of the dichotmies.

For instance, if the S/N dichotomy were switched, the position of Se and Ne functions would switch with one another, as would the position of the Si and Ni functions.  Reply With Quote

8. ## Thanks for explaining my first model that was a clear and correct explination... Let me try to explain the second one...

the second one basically assumes that each function place in model-a has every cognitive function inside of it F, S, N, T but with varying degrees. The formula I posted however doesnt vary the degree but it's binary and cancels out the congitive letters that shouldnt be there and the cancels out an e or i accordingly so you end up with the function letter followed by a lower or upper case e or i....

The f(x) function i defined because i didnt want to have it written so many times and because its interchangeable... what i defined it to do is return a 0 if its input is negative and a 1 if its input is possitive, thats how it cancels out the T F N S (they are treated like varaibles) by multiplication of zero, and if its multiplied by one it stays.

now if you change the f(x) to somehting like f(x) = (x + 1) / 2 then youll have a continuous model-a (as long as the domain of x is between -1 and 1)

so if im ENTP the input would be V1=1 V2=1 V3=1 V4=1

if i was ESTJ then ... V1=1 V2=-1 V3=1 V4=-1 and so forth

I hope that was more clear, i'm a bity too lazy/ sometimes   Reply With Quote
