Based on the model of personality by Roberto Assagioli and field theory of Kurt Lewin and as a result of our choice of the fractal model for representing the logical and information components of the mind, we developed a universal fractal model of the human psyche and its components in their dynamic interaction with each other and with the environment, as well as discovered the archetypal mechanisms of this interaction.

In the framework of the presented model, this publication also describes the mechanisms of development of the societal psyche of human communities, which to a great extent determines the same type of behavioral responses of most of its members to the same external challenges.

The fractal model of the human psyche makes it possible to quickly and comprehensively provide members of new political organizations able to operate effectively under the conditions of the information society with rather profound interdisciplinary knowledge about different approaches that explain the principles and mechanisms of their choice of behavioral patterns and strategies in the process of organizational interaction, as well as bring all these approaches into a coherent and consistent system of ideas and views about the interplay of the individual, the organization and the environment.

Keywords: Archetype, Archetypal Mechanisms, Fractal Model of the Psyche, Societal Psyche, Political Organizations, Dynamic Network
