A. A. Melik-Pashaev

The conditions of school education resulting in personal development of a forming person are considered. The author's opinion is that modern school is a system of objective knowledge transition and therefore it cannot perform the upbringing of full value.

The most important goal is to develop child's fantasy, moral qualities, ability for dialogic thinking. Then the mastering of culture is a discovery of new spiritual qualities and abilities in oneself.

On the problems of style peculiarities of activity self-regulation

O. A. Konopkin, V. I. Morosanova

The individual-typological differences of regulation processes are analysed, their main manifestations and connections with types of personality are shown. The level of style peculiarities accentuation and its functional specificity are considered as the basis of regulation styles' classification. It is concluded that the higher level of regulation function formation and self-regulation processes' harmonization leads to more freedom in vocation choise. When the marked regulation style exists, the importance of assistance in choise of vocation corresponding to interests and inclinations and regulatorial prerequisites as well increases.

A. B. Orlov

Stimulus reaction scheme and interaction one are considered to be the most important theoretical schemes of behaviour determination in foreign psychology. It is stated that progressive development of motivation theories demands the transition from these schemes to subject object one, which the theory of object activity is based upon.

A. I. Kagalnyak, K. E. Yashchishin

Structural and substantial characteristics of future teachers' self-appraisal and completeness




of reflection by it of their professionally significant qualities are studied.

Individual-psychological characteristics of external students and the success of their learning

V. I. Natarov, A. S. Soloviev

Psychological studies of TV-communications

L. V. Matveeva, N. B. Shkoporov

Informational paradigm of mass media, forming the basis of the most of psychological researches in the field, is critically analysed. The authors offer principally different ecological approach to mass media phenomena study, based upon the change of spectator's status from the object of influence to the subject of contact.

Individual emotional style

L. Ya. Dorfman

There are few researches of emotional sphere of a person concerning its style peculiarities. Most of them are based on personality concept.

The correctness of including IES into integral individuality studues is theoretically justified by the analysis of IES original conditions, its stability and the possibility to mark out its hierarchial levels. Like individual activity style hierarchy, IES contains such levels as intermediate purposes, operations, reactions, having special psychological substance.




Concerning I. P. Pavlov's doctrine role in modern psychology

B. I. Kochubey

I. P. Pavlov's conditioned reflex concept's application in modern science concerning human and animal behaviour is discussed. Science Citation Index and two different selections of articles, published in psychological magazines, are analysed for that purpose. The analysis shows that I. P. Pavlov works' influence on the development of psychology has considerably diminished in recent years as compared to W. James' and Z. Freud's ones. P. G. Kostyuk et al. analysis (1983) of psychological studies' dinamics in USSR for the last 20 years contains the similar data. Only animal behaviour research still is under considerable influence of conditioned reflex theory. Some methological and social aspects of I. P. Pavlov's doctrine's applications are discussed.

Logical analysis and comprehending problem in psychology

L. A. Radzihovskiy

Problems of analysis in psychology are considered in connection with previously published in "Voprosi psihologii" discussion. Two principally different kinds of analysis are marked out (this psychological tradition was neglected in our country for the last years). As applied to lower psychical functions exact analysis is used in accordance with general for all natural sciences precision criteria. "Comprehending" method is applied to higher psychical functions not allowing an accurate single localization. Comprehending itself can be exact or not because of non-formulated intuitive exactness criteria, none the less effective.

Classification of disturbances in mutual understanding (on an example of marital relations) is given. Their main varieties are: non-perspicacity, non-sincerety, distrast, myth, ritual lie, unjustified suspiciousness, discord. Humorous potential of the game can be used for correction of relations.

V. F. Odoevskiy's psychological views

V. V. Bolshakova

V. F. Odoevskiy's psychological views corresponded with general psychological scientific progress in the first half of XIX century and were based on native materialistic science achievements (M. V. Lomonosov, A. N. Radishchev, N. I. Novi-kov, V. N. Tatishchev). V. F. Odoevskiy was interested in self-observation, problems of theoretical thinking, ets.

Individual space lateralization's influence on perceptive processes' asymmetry

Yu. V. Braginskaya, B. M. Velichkovskyi, P. N. Prudkov

The connection between functional asymmetry of the brain and lateralization of individual space is studied. The new method based on a variant of Stroop effect of examining interference effects in visual reception is presented. The use of unconcor-dance between retinal and individual space coordinates enables the researcher to discern two different mechanisms of functional asymmetry. The machinery of solving left-hemispheric problems is connected to lateralization of receptor structures. The machinery of solving right-hemispheric problems is determined by the differences in representation of left and right halves of individual space.




Schoolchildren's theoretical analysis study

P. G. Nezhnov, A. M. Medvedev

Theoretical thinking by children studies are continued conforming to concept of learning activity. The authors offer original methodics for exposing of interior connection of theoretical analysis and planning and for objectifying of constructive aspect of analysis act. The experimental results show that planning as an action based on foresight mediates the transition to theoretical analysis from inferior forms of orientation. New methodics shows constructive aspect of analysis clearly enough.

The determination of developmental levels of verbal-logical thinking in schoolchildren

L. I. Peresleni, L. F. Chuprov

The extent of verbal-logical thinking formation is important for the definition of mental developmental level of younger schoolchildren. The authors' methodics contains a short version of the first four verbal subtests formed after R. Antho-wer's principle.

When the first attempt to solve the problem fails, stimulating assistance is offered. The success of problem solving was estimated in points. Four levels of success are considered. It enables one to find the lag in the development of verbal-logical thinking of 6,5 10 years old children.
