5.How many sub-types you select the criteria for this are the most important?
A. When podtipnoy diagnosis we follow a specific purpose, which is set by the client or by us personally. This goal determines the level of expression of personality and the methods applied. In general, there are three levels. The main criterion for the first level - the relative abundance of the type of functions of the inert or contact block model "A". The criterion of the second level - the dominance of the type of one of the four forms of behavior - the normative, creative, volitional, or harmonizing. A criterion for the third level - the dominance of the type of one of eight accents, as manifested in the exterior, and in the patterns of thinking and behavior. It further takes into account the nature of personality - Introvert ekstravernoy-and rational - irrational.
In practice, the diagnosis of the first level (16 x 2 = 32 subtype) can serve as an indicator of the dominant temperament: static (phlegmatic, melancholic) or dynamic (sanguine, choleric),
and possible combinations. The second level (32 x 4 = 128) in practice is confirmed by the characteristic patterns of behavior - normalizing (formal), creative (informal), volitional (dominant) and harmonizing (compromise). The third level (32 x 12 = 384) is reflected in the exterior, the nature of activities and ways of solving problems, as well as forms of expression of feelings and relationships.
So, put simply, we distinguish 12 variants of each of the two subtypes of 16 personality types.
