Psychosophy proposes that human personality is comprised of four basic aspects: Emotion, Logic, Physics, Will

Man realized himself early as a multi-faceted, heterogeneous being, composed of some independent, little dependent on each other primary elements. It all started with an epiphany of an obvious thing for everyone now: a person consists of a body and a soul.

Further, complicating this situation, which has not yet become banal, the person divided the soul into the actual "soul", i.e. the emotional function, the area of feelings, moods, heart reactions, experiences, and the "spirit", i.e. the volitional function, desire, control, character, personality, temper, "I".

With the beginning of the cultural revolution, when man gradually began to turn from a hostage of nature into its tyrant, another completely independent element of his nature was revealed - "mind", "reason", "intellect", i.e. a logical function, the ability to mentally see the essence of things, the connection between them and accurately describe them.

So, gradually, the idea of the internal architecture of a person, consisting of four mental modules or functions: EMOTION ("soul"), LOGIC ("mind"), PHYSICS ("body") and WILL ("spirit"), was formed.
