What Is Possible In Socionic

It is demonstrated that socionics as a theory of informational metabolism contains its own basis in itself and thus does not need to search its foundations in other scientific disciplines. In particular, it does not need theoretical and system substantiation, because the theory of systems can itself be derived from the socionic paradigm. It is contended that the paradigm of socionics can serve as methodological basis of the whole modern science. All sciences and processes in the society can be considered from the viewpoint of socionics, and the whole psychology can be considered with use of the socionic concepts and terminology.
Key words: socionic paradigm, information, theory of systems, psychology.
