Socionics and other sciences



Why with one people it is easy and pleasantly,
and with others it is heavy and uncomfortably?
Why two persons - good and clever -
begin to conflict when meet?

Why there are happy and unhappy marriages?
What is necessary to do to avoid erroneous choice?
What profession to select to work with pleasure and success?

These questions are answered by socionics
a science studying information processes in a human society.

Place of socionics in system of sciences

Socionics in triangle: psychology - sociology - informatics.

As all new sciences socionics was born on a joint of old sciences: psychology - sociology - informatics. Socionics borrowed much from these sciences and number of other sciences about the man: accumulated knowledge of the man, basic terminology, methods of research.

Socionics is not only science and technology. It is philosophy. Acquainting with socionics you once would begin to notice and to understand the phenomena, which earlier slipped out from look. You unexpectedly would see connections and laws, which were not assumed.

Socionics and...:

And also Socionic Applications

Socionics, design, architecture and fashion

It is well known that the different people completely differently perceive the same style in design or architecture. Socionics allows to estimate an acceptability of that or other style for the people with the certain person type and to offer the most suitable design and architectural decisions. Frequently fashion styles, offered as a general sample, reflect perception features of small number of person types. The people of other types feel a little uncomfortable, the offered decisions do not suit them. Socionics can offer the decision of this problem.



Socionics, cybernetics and problems of artificial intellect

The effective models describing structure of human mentality and mechanisms of information processing are advanced in socionics. Use of the socionic model apparatus in development of artificial intellect systems and other information systems would allow increasing of their efficiency, productivity, and degree of similarity to human intellect. The socionic methods allow solving problems in construction of complex information systems, which can be arranged under the concrete man working with them (problem of the operator - system type).


Socionics, culturology, anthropology

The socionic analysis allows penetrating into essence of cultural points of view and traditions, inherent to investigated ethnos, features of its interrelation with an environment and others ethnoses. It concerns both personal and social level of functioning of investigated society.



Socionics, management and selection of the staff

The knowledge of the laws of the people interaction opened by socionics allows forming effective administrative, industrial and other staffs with high degree of psychological, informational and business compatibility. The International Institute of Socionics has much experience in reorganization and formation of staffs. The S-technologies developed in Institute allow to estimate potential of each worker, situation in whole collective, to specify weak places, potentially and really existing conflict situations, effectively to eliminate them, to free the hidden reserves, to increase collective efficiency, to improve its management. Formation or the reorganization of collective takes into account psychological features of its chief and problems, facing the collective.


Socionics in politology and history

Frequently politologs and the historians in their research can hardly estimate the reasons and motives of actions of political and historical persons, their influence on a investigated society, reaction of the society to their actions, reason of change of ideologies and psychological installations in socium. Socionics and ethnosocionics allow to answer these questions and to specify the hidden principles of psychoinformational dynamics in development of the society. It is possible to predict development dynamics of the certain state by socionic methods. The principles of psychoinformational systems development are formulated in socionics (for example, principle of quadras changing). The principles applicated to socium give new laws of historical development of a society, its policy and ideology. The features of some political person's behavior are easily described and are predicted by socionic methods.



Socionics and psychology

Socionics has discovered structure of the human information processing. The models of mentalities allowing rather detailed to describe feature of the perception, thinking and behavior of the human as determined psychoinformational type are developed in socionics. There is a typology in socionics that is developed from C.G.Jung's typology with higher model and prognostic level. The theory of intertype human relations is a part of socionics, which allows effectively predicting features of interactions and relations between two persons (in a marriage, friendship, business, and other activity) of preliminary determinated psychoinformational (socionic) type. This allows effectively using socionic methods during formation of collectives of any types.


Socionics, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, psychiatry and narcology

The structural description of mentality in socionics allows effectively using it in psychotherapy - both individual, and grouping. The socionic models describe both conscious, and unconscious spheres of mentality, therefore their practical use (socioanalysis) effectively supplements psychoanalitical techniques. The psychiatrists-socionics reveal predisposition of those or other types of the person to accentuations or mental diseases. Socionic techniques are used in treatment of alcohol and nicotine related addictions.



Socionics and advertising

The development of new advertising strategy for commerce is possible on the basis of principles of human perception discovered by socionics. This is also useful for electoral campaigns.


Socionics, ethnosocionics and sociology

The sociological methods in the analysis of public opinion not always completely reflect a society state. Frequently this is due to uncertainty in preference selection of the respondents. The socionic methods allow to develop psychoinformational models of investigated collective or society, which give possibility to lower this uncertainty, and thus to increase accuracy of such investigations.



Socionics and sociometry

Sociometry allows estimating of situation and relation of the people in the already existing collective. Socionics allows to solve this, and reverse problem, unsolvable by sociometric methods. It allows answering questions: which would be new collective and how the atmosphere in collective would change, when a new member would appear in it?


Socionics, engineering, engineering psychology

Information socionic models can describe the human interaction with technical devices of different complexity levels. Thus it appears, that for different personal types the interaction with the completely certain technical devices in productions is preferable. Socionics allows considering a problem "operator - machine" from new point of view. The account of socionic principles could significantly practically contribute to engineering psychology.



Socionics, Jung's and Myers-Briggs' typology

The idea of socionic types as types of information metabolism was developed from Jung's views on structure of mentality. Socionic typology is a direct development and expansion of Jung's typology. However opportunities given by socionic information model of mentality much wider, than has model offered by C.G.Jung. In particular, socionics has discovered the principles of human compatibility.

The Myers-Briggs' typology is another branch of Jung's typology. It a little bit differs from and not completely coincides with Jung's typology and only partially coincides with socionic typology, since it is based on different views on structure of mentality. Therefore in it, from the socionics point of view, the structure of mentality is described insufficiently and has no theory of intertype relations.


Socionics, philosophy and religion

Socionics, opening universalities of human thinking, allows the new look on genesis and classification of philosophical systems, and evolution of views of the different philosophers.

Socionics allows effectively to describe a significant part of religious systems and institutions, to classify their ideological contents in terms of culturological and anthropological researches.



Socionics and ecology

Socionics allows to allocate two ecological themes:

  • Ecology of the man and society in environmental world, their interaction with the world of technics and world of a nature,
  • Ecology of a society as movement to creation of harmonic relations in it.
