Emotionality and regulation of communicatory activity

An attempt has been made to find some cause- effect relations between individual-typological properties of emotionality and communicability. Results obtained through application of an original prolonged procedure show that activity connected with the search of individually conforming, favourable conditions for communication is determined by stable individual-typological characteristics of emotionality. It has been established that besides the traditionally studied kind, of communicatory activity there exists another kind which is manifested in avoidance of wide contacts, in selective choice of partners, of the time, conditions and manner of communication. The second kind is typical of people with negative emotional disposition. The study show that stable tendency for experiencing negative emotions is associated with wider scope of deeper nuances of positive actual emotions which appear in comfortable communication as compared with domination of positive emotional disposition.
