Individual and social in personality type

The relation between the levels of Individual and Individuality in the subject of psychical reflection are considered in details. It is shown that socionics as a particular humanitarian discipline is located at the level of Individual, and its practical application – at the cross-section of the levels of Individual and Individuality. Based on this, conclusion is made that problems some authors consider to belong to the sphere of socionics in fact belong to the field of its practical application. Methodological suggestions on transition from the typological to the social level are given.

The description of a questionnaire "LOT"

A model of links between separate Jungian functions and dichotomies represented as multilevel lever scales is proposed. It is presumed to be more correct, due to non-rigid nature of reciprocal balance between the function in dichotomies, to measure not dichotomies, but each function separately. The article gives detailed history, procedure of creation and structure of V.L.Talanov’s LOT Questionnaire of 340 questions (a short version consists of 240 questions), which has higher sensibility and reliability compared to other analogous methodologies, and is designed for independent measurement of each of the 8 functions — extroverted and introverted components of logic, ethic, sensation and intuition. Examples are given to illustrate unique opportunities of applying this new methodology in Jungian psychology, in socionics and in researches adjacent to physiology and neural psychology.
Key words: psychology, neural psychology, personality psychology, psychical diagnostics, logic, ethic, sensation, intuition, extroversion, introversion, dichotomy.
