The First Quadra (Alpha) — types, values, and mission of the quadra in socionics

Quadra representatives: the types are Seeker (ILE), Analyst (LII), Enthusiast (ESE) and Mediator (SEI).

For the Alpha quadra, the family-type economy is organically suitable. With such an organization of work, all family members work according to their strengths and abilities. No one is overworked, but at the same time, no one is slacking. Produced and stored things match approximately how much the family can consume. This type of farm is fully adapted to the surrounding natural landscape.

Socio-economic aspect. The first quadra (Alpha) - values, the mission of the quadra. Humanitarian socionics This quadra is generally not in power. Of course, some of its representatives sometimes end up in central management positions, but only as an exception that confirms the rule. Alpha types have neither the power nor the financial leverages to effectively lead organized groups.

State institutions in the Alpha-society are not developed, and the authority of the older ones prevails. In this quadra, there are no managerial sociotypes endowed with logic and sensorics. State power is therefore exercised by outsiders, or anarchy reigns there. Not anarchy in the sense of "robber freemen", but as a situational leadership of someone who at the moment is able to interest, captivate, and demonstrate knowledge. There is no need for the state as an apparatus of coercion, since there is no serious aggressiveness, love of power, or an excess of product that could be appropriated by force. It is difficult for this democratic quadra to react to punishment, force coercion, the dictates of long-standing traditions or formally introduced law. An Alpha type, limited by such boundaries, psychologically perishes, just as the native who is accustomed to live in unity with nature perishes, when is placed in a city apartment.

Such a society can theoretically exist indefinitely, but it is destroyed by natural disasters or contact with more aggressive neighbors. It is possible only in the conditions of a very protected periphery, a special parallel world, which, knowing about the existence of a civilized world and even coming into contact with it, nevertheless remains outside of its direct influence.

Values of the types of the First quadra: Family-cognitive.

The types of the Alpha quadra have an orientation towards their neighbors and their own small group. In other words, they are characterized by moderate individualism. On the one hand, it manifests itself like a child's egocentrism-the inability to look at the situation from the point of view of another, a stranger. On the other hand, the strong dependence of this quadra on its immediate environment does not allow Alpha types to turn into anti-collectivists.

In a society where hostility and hatred have become typical, the family remains almost the only source of kindness and love and mutual respect. The most family-friendly types in the socion are Mediator (SEI) and the Enthusiast (ESE). The most in need of individual care within the family are the Analyst (LII) and the Seeker (ILE).

The knowledge of Alpha-quadral scientists has the purest and most harmless forms, based mainly on simple curiosity. It never becomes a dogma or a powerful creed that recruits fanatical adherents to its side, as in the Beta Quadra, and is not driven by material interest or direct monetary gain (applied science), as in the Gamma Quadra.

For Alpha cognition, you do not need special tools and research laboratories stuffed with expensive equipment. This quadra learns the fundamental laws by coming into contact with the matter under study in the normal course of life. Therefore, the laws it opens are not of the nature of rigid dependencies. These are just empirical generalizations of frequently repeated events. However, without such a work of the mind, a mature specialized science would not be possible.

In any quadra, there is not only the potential for moving forward, but also the mechanism of self-removal. The Alpha quadra eventually gets ruined by its own curiosity. Being the most open and trusting to new information, Alpha types are like a moth drawn to a flame, flying to their doom. The penetration by any perfect tools or techniques that dramatically increase productivity into the quadra awakens instincts of power and possession. And from here there is only one step to class stratification and the emergence of regular power, which is Beta quadra’s order.

People united by Alpha values are close to the model of harmonious (in the sense of L. Gumilyov) individuals. That is, they are hardworking enough to provide everything necessary for themselves and their offspring, but neither tempted enough nor competitive enough to create the surplus product necessary for expansion.

Читаю про квадры, и все это напомнило мне фильм "Дивергент". И как то прям печально стало. По описанию квадр отнесла бы себя к Гамме.

Никогда не говори никогда. И это не просто любопытный мотыль.
