Estimation of typological delineation of emotional-dynamic pattern in practically healthy ukrainian women without and taking into account somatotype

Keywords: locus of control, level of subjective control, women, somatotype.


Annotation. The level of subjective control may vary in different regions depending on social and economic living conditions, moral attitudes and level of education of the population. Circumstances such as age, gender and constitutional variability in the locus of control cannot be ruled out (although there is very little research on this issue). The purpose of the study is to conduct a comparative study of the typological delineation of the emotional-dynamic pattern in practically healthy Ukrainian women without and taking into account the somatotype. Primary anthropo-somatotypological and personality indicators of practically healthy Ukrainian women aged 21 to 35 of different somatotypes were selected from the database of materials of the research center of National Pirogov Memorial Medical University, Vinnytsya. Determination of the components of internality by J. Rotter in the modification of E. F. Bazhin, S. O. Golinkina and O. M. Etkind included the definition (sten): indicator of the scale of general internality of the level of subjective control, indicators of the level of subjective control in the industry achievements, failures, family relationships, educational (professional) relationships, interpersonal relationships, health and disease. Statistical processing of the results was performed in the license package “Statistica 5.5” using non-parametric evaluation methods. The reliability of the difference between the values between the independent quantitative values was determined using the U-Mann-Whitney test. There was a lower level of general internality and subjective control in the field of achievement in mesomorphic women compared to women without taking into account somatotype and women of other somatotypes. According to the scale of internality in the field of failures in women without taking into account somatotype, endo-mesomorphs and representatives of the middle intermediate somatotype, the most developed sense of control over negative situations and the tendency to blame themselves for trouble compared to mesomorphic women. It is characteristic that in the sphere of family relations this image emerges especially clearly in mesomorphic women; they consider their partner, not themselves, to be more responsible for the events of family life. Women of intermediate somatotype compared to women without somatotype and women mesomorphs and ectomorphs have a higher level of internality in the field of interpersonal relationships. The level of subjective health and disease control in endo-mesomorphic women is significantly lower than in ectomorphic women. Thus, the level and various parameters of subjective control can be used as personal markers of the studied somatotype, which will create optimal and most individualized recommendations for psychological support, adaptation and coping strategies.
