Kovalenko R.K., Zvonareva N.A. - Study of interrelation between the socionic type and the “Big Five” personality traits pp. 62-88


Abstract: The subject of this research is the constructive validity of the provisions and diagnostic tools used in socionics. Socionics is viewed as a typological concept within the framework of cognitive psychology, which describes a type of information metabolism of a person based on the modeling method. The statistical verification of separate provisions of the socionic model is a relevant topic due to the fact that the socionic model is widely used in career orientation, team-building, conflict settlement, marketing and other spheres. The article provides the research results of the primary and secondary factors of the five-factor personality traits questionnaire the “Big Five” with the socionic characteristics. The article employs the method of determining a socionic type, a five-factor personality traits questionnaire, statistical comparison of the two groups based on the Mann-Whitney criterion, and calculation of the point-biserial correlation coefficient. The scientific novelty of lies in acquisition of the statistically important results that prove correlation between all secondary and twenty four primary factors with the socionic characteristics: “extraversion – introversion”, “logic – ethics”, “static – dynamics”, “assertiveness – inadvertence”, “irrationality – rationality” and “questimality – declarativeness”. Correlations between the “Big Five” personality traits with socionic characteristics correspond with the correlations within the “Big Five”. A conclusion is made on the prospects of research on the constructive validity of socionic methods, which would allow using the socionic model for a more extensive description of human capabilities.
Kovalenko R.K., Zvonareva N.A. - The study of correlation between socionic type and coefficients of empathy and systematization pp. 118-130


Abstract: The subject of this research is the validity of scales used in socionics. The authors view socionics as a typological concept that describes predisposition of an individual to learning within the framework of one of another type of information using the method of modeling. Special attention is paid to the relevance of examination of the concept of socionics, its scientific substantiation from the perspective of differential psychology. The article explores one of the socionic characteristics – “logics / ethics” and its interrelation with the coefficients of empathy EQ and systematization SQ. In the course of this research, the authors applied the methodology of determination of socionics type, EQ and SQ coefficient tests, as well as statistical comparison of two groups. The scientific novelty consists in the fact that the authors are first to acquire results confirming the hypothesis on correlation between socionic characteristics “logics / ethics” and coefficients of empathy EQ and systematization SQ. According to socionics, the people of “ethic” type are more predisposed to high level of empathy and low scores on the scale of systematization; while the people with “logic” type are predisposed to high level of systematization with low values of empathy coefficient.
