TIM model structure of the psyche

Socionics, system, psyche, model, structure, information, TIM

The model’s structural elements – psyche functions – are virtual processors (information processing machines). Each of them has its own “operational system” (by analogy with computer) determined by the purpose (role) of the psyche function in the systemic TIM model structure and the combination of information processing parameters (Ex, Nr, St and Tm). Also each of these processors has «an application working program» determined by the information element being processed by this function. Different purposes of structural elements, i.e. their places in the model structure result in the differentiation of “operational system” of the virtual processor that models the psyche function.
