Evolution of competition and cooperation in nature and society
Self-organization of complex natural systems is investigated. The Darwinian struggle for survival (competition) has a place at the bottom densely populated floors of hierarchy. The highest levels are harmonized through cooperation. Disadvantages of a competitive market are the result of noncompliance with the laws of the natural harmony. Harmonising state administration is required.

Informational Structure of Society
Analysis of historical processes
Methods of integral socionics show the limitations and imperfections of many particular theories of the historical process. Only the synthesis of these theories are based on the concept of the information structure of society and the stages of its evolution allows us to give a comprehensive picture of the historical process. An analysis of some processes of ancient history shows the application of the principles of integral socionics in the synthesis and generalization of the theory of the historical process.

Socionics and psyche
The article is an attempt of psychological research of existence of 'conceptual bridges' between so-cionics and psychology. Certain issues of the system organization of information processes in human psyche, the basic provisions of A.Kepinsky's theory of informational metabolism and particularities of TIM as a multilevel structure are considered. It is concluded that it is TIM as a multilevel basic functional system that performs the role of a linking stage in research of various psychic phenomena and provides for the follow-up of multi-dimensional, multilevel, poly-determining and hierarchic character of different psychic phenomena manifestation in an individual.
Keywords: informational metabolism, psyche, system approach, structure, TIM, theory of functional systems.
It is proposed to order the understanding of information and aspects of the informational flow by Jung scales: logic-ethic, sensation-intuition, extraversion-introversion, rationality-irrationality.

The manifestations of the socionic type and external conditions
The correspondence between TIMs and intertype relations (IR) is discussed in detail; a notion of IR basis is introduced. A correlation between particular IR relations and TIM aspects, responsibility of the latter for the general IR properties understood in accordance with given notions is established. Human TIM's dependence from external factors is established.
Keywords: socionics, IR basis, external factors influence on TIM, IR aspects.
Psychology and Socionics
Type and typology in psychology
Theoretical description of the structure of personal traits from the standpoint of type and typology concepts is proposed. Comparison between the best known factor-based methodologies has shown that personality measurement methodologies use as a rule 15 ± 5 factors, whose orthogonalization results in 4 independent factors. Comparison between three clinical typologies allows finding 16 personality types. The same quantity of types exists in the most advanced theoretical typologies. Based on systematic analysis of sources, a hy-pothesis on existence of a uniform 16-element personality typology is proposed, which realizes the idea of mutual correlation and complementation of the typological and the factor-based approaches.
Keywords: type, typology, factor descriptions of personality, socionics, psychology.
