Portrait as an instrument for measuring interpersonal relations

A new modified version of the semantic differential (SD) technique is tried wherein a human portrait is used for measuring interpersonal relations in a group and their dynamics. The technique is based on the expert evaluations of graphic pictures of a human being which disclose the attitude of an author to other group members and to himself. Is has been shown that the specific graphic form of these pictures translates subjective meanings of the relations between the authors of the drawings. The technique makes it possible, in contrast to direct verbal SD evaluations, to get deeper and more objective information on the character of interpersonal relations between men in the situation of group interaction.
