Type and typology in psychology
Theoretical description of the structure of personal traits from the standpoint of type and typology concepts is proposed. Comparison between the best known factor-based methodologies has shown that personality measurement methodologies use as a rule 15 ± 5 factors, whose orthogonalization results in 4 independent factors. Comparison between three clinical typologies allows finding 16 personality types. The same quantity of types exists in the most advanced theoretical typologies. Based on systematic analysis of sources, a hy-pothesis on existence of a uniform 16-element personality typology is proposed, which realizes the idea of mutual correlation and complementation of the typological and the factor-based approaches.
Keywords: type, typology, factor descriptions of personality, socionics, psychology.
