Ethnosocionics consider nations as psychoinformatoin systems (integral persons), of which the Jung's persons' typology is true.

It is not new idea to consider ethnos as integral person (collective subject). This idea was advanced and was substantiated in the works of Wilhelm von Humboldt, Nikolay Berdyayev, Nykolay Lossky, etc. In particular Carl Jung wrote that "people's psyche is only more compound structure than person's psyche". It is logically to consider this integral person to be reasonable, i. e. this integral person has consciousness, memory, action logic, emotions. Ethnosocionics considers ethnos as psychoinformation system, of which the persons' typology is also true. In each ethnos there are persons of different psychological types.

So this science studies ethnoses' psychological types, features of their behaviour, mutual relations with other nations, etc.

Ethnosocionics is one of the directions of socionics, a young science, which was born on the boundary between psychology, sociology and information science. Socionics is based on the Jung's typology and Augustinavichjute's Intertypes' Relations Theory. It is considering persons as bearers of the certain types of information metabolism, which are developing and interacting on the base of objective laws.

Each person is being examined over 4 main pairs of signs (coordinates): logical "o ethical (emotional), sensorical "o intuitional, rational "o irrational, extravert "o introvert. While studding the concrete person one can determine the mentality type, this person inclined to: logical or emotional, concrete or abstract etc. Having determined each of 4 pairs of signs one determines the one of 16 sociotypes the person under determination belongs to.

Let us remind their names:

ƒ{Intuitive-logical extravert (ILE, ENTP*)

ƒ{Sensoro- ethical introvert (SEI, ISFP)

ƒ{Ethico- sensorical extravert (ESE, ESFJ)...
