- I'm having some difficulty finding (and reading/translating) articles written by Augusta, Reinin, Gulenko, Boukhalov and the other socionics top dogs out there. Is there a centralized deposit of their articles somewhere?
- 'Augusta created a mathematical theory of thinking'... I'm dying to learn more about this feat. How deep did Augusta go with her analysis..? Does anyone know more about this?

http://www.socionics.ibc.com.ua/socpubl.html#top < Int Soc Institute Russian articles sections
http://ru.laser.ru/ < good library
http://daer.narod.ru/ < loads slow but has a nice collection of full books and stuff
all three sites have the fundimentals of Augusta's work. If you don't know Russian about the best I can suggest is using the combination of Systran Professional Premium 5 and the multitran site. I do pretty good by this (much, much better than babelfish will ever give you). The only harsh part (depending on your views towards software piracy) is that Systran costs about $799 to buy and yes, you really do want the full professional version, it has key features that are needed for producing coherent Russian-English translations that don't make your eyeballs scream. If your not uptight PM me and I can point you towards where you can download the cracked full licensed version of it (you'll need a real internet connection as it's around 650 mb)
Kepinski's work I've found is much, much harder to get ahold of. All sources I've found in English require rediculously high regristration fees to access. I did one time get ahold of a pdf version of his book were he lays out the information metabolism theory, but it turned out to be a straight picture scanning of the book in Polish. Not speaking Polish and not being able to select out the text for translation it turned out to be a dead end.
The second site (ru.laser.ru) uses the opposite notation convention than what we're used to.

They decided to use the "J-P flip" for introverts. Quite a few of their typings are rather offball, and they've listed their rate of correspondence to other socionists in the right hand column. Quite low. Also, they give great weight to facial features and are very bull-headed about it. When I wrote to them once they insisted I was an ILE based on one picture on my site (of course, I did not ask to be typed). Stuff like that makes me depressed, but, naturally, these people are not particularly mainstream, despite their large socionics library. According to them, Sergey Ganin is LIE, not LII, Stratievskaya is IEE, not ESI, Tsypin (whom I have met) is LII, not IEE, and Mironov (whom I have met) is ILE, not LIE (of course, they are wrong).
