Socionics is a personality theory developed primarily by a Lithuanian researcher named Aušra Augustinavičiūtė, also known as Aushra Augusta. Socionics explains human cognition and interaction using information metabolism (IM), the process by which reality is perceived, thought about, and affected by action. The structure of information metabolism is explained by Model A, which says that everyone has access to eight basic faculties called IM elements (IMEs), but that these levels of access differ according to certain traits, namely strength and boldness, and the level of priority we place on these aspects differ according to the trait called value.
