The quanting of the collective information space
The socionics, being an information metabolism theory, is able to describe the psychoinformation spaces of the mentality of person, collective or ethnos by the models A or B. The existence of the information metabolism discrete functions determines the necessity of the quanting of the described information space. Such quanting can be revealed by the social roles of some groups, selected in collective or society (as well as in state, ethnos or set of ethnoses, in human civilization in general).
From this point of view the detailed distribution of roles has to be correspondent to the socionics A-model.
