Motivational Typological Attitudes: the Individual Level of Psyche
The phenomenon of motivation is considered in relation with its subject consisting of four level corresponding (in the narrow sense) to the four approaches: biological, psychological, typological and social. The typological level where inborn motivational attitudes exist in the form of hierarchy of 4 system components of activity (SCA) according to M.Kagan is considered with special thoroughness.
Key words: socionics, psyche, methodology, human, personality, individual, individuality, motivation.
The Energetic Approach to Description of the Structure of Psyche
A psychic model uniting in one-channel homonymic functions of different rendition is suggested. Conclusions in favour of an energy-driven character of psyche functioning are given.
Key words: structure of psyche communication channels, energy of functions, energy exchange, informational exchange.
"Climatic Types" of Love and Distances of Relations
Different types of love, their groups and psychological distances corresponding to these groups are described in this article.
Key words: socionics, psychology, types of love, psychological distance, relations between people.
Synchronistic Events in the Space-Time and the Structure of Psycho-Informational Space
It is shown that the phenomenon of psycho-informational (psychic) environment structuring and quantitation (as discovered by the author earlier) manifests itself also in the structure of physical temporal-spatial environment on the causal level, thus forming a 'magic row' of numbers: 7±1, 10±1, 17±1, 27±1, 44±1... which act as indicators of integral patterns characteristic to any given event. As processing of statistical data related to 850 information on accidents and catastrophes has shown, the number of individuals involved in each such accident has been truly correspondent to the 'magic row' numbers. Therefore, it shall be possible to use causal models (analogous to socionic ones) for description of the internal structure of the physical temporal-spatial environment, and to create a singular fractal model (B(SIN)) that would include in itself structures of psycho-informational environment (Ψ, I), physical temporal-spatial environment (X, T) and energy impulse (p, E). The 'temporal-spatial' component of the model is semantically tied to the psychic one and synchronistically (as C.Jung put it) influences participants of the event forming indivisible synchronistic event patterns indicated by the number of participating subjects or objects. The B(SIN) model also gives explanation of some paradoxes related to 'recurrence of humane history' and discovered by N.Мorozov and А.Fomenko, and certain other phenomena.
Key words: socionics, structuring of psychic environment, synchronistic model, synchronics, Bukalov's "magic row", synchronistic archetypes, history.
This article explains basic prerequisites, categories and concepts of Socionics, a science describing a system of Socion (the unity of 16 personality types), socionic nature of a human being and socionic structure of the society, different informational metabolism types of people and different forms of interactions (relationships) between them. Aspects and model of the informational metabolism (A-Model) are described.
Key words: socionics, informational metabolism type, социон, informational metabolism aspect, intertype relationships, logic, ethic, sensation, intuition.
Modeling of intertype relationships
A new description of intertype relationships based on type and relation duality principle is suggested. Eight-component models of intertype relationships are formulated and discussed in detail.
Key words: socionics, type of informational metabolism, intertype relationships, duality principle, model of relations.
Socionics and Phylosophy
Dichotomies in Socionics and Philosophy
The close connection and parallelism of the basic socionic concepts - the theory of mental information metabolism - with a series of philosophical categories and systems is demonstrated. The use of quadruple socionic system of knowledge structuring, which covers all the information aspects, allows to expand and to complete many of these philosophical knowledge systems. The process of evolution of ideas in philosophy from antiquity up to the present days is considered from socionic positions.
Key words: socionics, philosophy, ontology, epistemology, thesis - antithesis, synthesis - anti-synthesis.
Type and Typology: Definition and Main Characteristics

Key words: type, typology, classification.
