On the Concept of Psycho-Informational Space
The article presents a concept of psycho-informational space and its fields performing the role of substruc-tures, which involves the whole spectrum of psychical and social activity of humans and other creatures. In particular, this space includes a transpersonal part of psychical processes (as described by C.G.Jung and S.Grof), synchronistic processes, religious phenomena and corresponding psychical correlatives, psychical processes within an individual, types of informational metabolism (IM) within the structure of socion, and integral and social (societal) psyche. From the standpoint of methodology, the suggested theory allows de-scribing the whole spectrum of human psychical and social activities studied in other sciences (likewise the Maxwell's electromagnetic theory has united electricity, magnetism, light and radio waves by qualifying them different manifestations of the single electromagnetic field).
Key words: socionics, psycho-informational space, hierarchy of psycho-informational fields, the single theory of field, self, psyche, transpersonal, social (societal) psyche.

Finding a Correct Approach to a Child. Advices on Individual Approach towards Different Personality Types of Children
16 socionic types of children are described, advices given on development of each personality type. The authors propose an own test determining informational metabolism types of children of school age.
Key words: socionics, psychological type, informational metabolism type, personality development, pedagogy, education, testing.
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, informational metabolism aspect, intertype relationships, logic, ethic, sensation, intuition.
Once More on Detached and Virtual Components of the Tetrad of Informational Metabolism Type
While analyzing periodical system of socion structure, detached and virtual components of TIM tetrads have been discovered. Explanation is given to some behavioral reactions in humans with certain TIM characteris-tics, previously considered paradoxical.
Key words: socionics, periodical system of socion, type of informational metabolism (TIM), behavioral reactions, TIM tetrad, wholesome tetrad, tetrad components, detached and virtual components.
On a Group of Criteria in Socionics
The group of 15 orthogonal criteria describing a psychological type in socionics has been obtained. The correlation of all the 15 criteria with certain properties of the person opens opportunities for construction of highly reliable tests, and for application of the mathematical apparatus of the theory of groups in the field of socionics and personality typology.
Key words: personality type, socionics, socion, orthogonal attributes, theory of groups.
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.
Covert Struggle for the Throne
