The first objective of cognitonics (or the science about the human being in the digital world) is to explicate numerous distortions in the perception of the world caused by the information society and globalization. The second, principal objective of cognitonics is to cope with these distortions in different fields by means of elaborating systemic solutions for compensating the negative implications of the kind for the personality and society, in particular, for creating cognitive-cultural preconditions of the harmonic development of the personality in the information society and smart society and for ensuring the successful development of national cultures and national languages.

The aim of the study was to find out the extent of universality of perception of the emotional tone of information for three types of stimulus material: human behavior, music, and non-musical auditory stimuli. A distinction between two aspects of emotional tone perception was proposed: accuracy of evaluation of its modality and sensitivity to its intensity. Methods to measure these two aspects were developed for three types of stimulus material. The hypothesis was proposed that sensitivity is more universal, whereas intensity is more specific regarding the type of stimuli. Empirical evidence in support of the hypothesis was found.
In this paper, we examined Budner’s (1962) intolerance of ambiguity scale with respect to its reliability and factor structure on a sample of 1082 Russian-speaking participants. The questionnaire demonstrated a two-factor structure and showed satisfactory internal consistency (reliability) and validity. We also report on a set of correlations between the questionnaire’s scale
This article studies a contemporary state of the problem of emotion recognition ability. Main contradictions in research are deconstructed, as well as possible perspectives and solutions. The results of empirical study testing the hypothesis whether emotion recognition ability is a general ability of a human being are presented.
Period of training in a higher school is a threshold on the professional life way, therefore, it reflects the willingness to vigorously respond to all the vicissitudes of life and desire for constant self-improvement.
