This technique clarifies the roles, values and behaviours that are important in this period of life.
For advice on marriage and family is the most important reflection in the answers on the topics of family and marital relations, present and future family roles, how they are valued by the individual.
Job to execute this technique:
- Write the answers to the question "Who am I?" Necessary to answer in a column, numbering the answers.
- Next to each answer, draw a spontaneous way – an illustration to the word.
- name each figure.
- Rank color - make the strokes of the colors present in the picture from the most pleasant to least pleasant.
Two ways of running jobs allow to compare the verbal and nonverbal characteristics reflecting the interaction of conscious and unconscious aspects of the psyche.
Consider the implementation of this technique on the example of the thirty years ' woman, we'll call her Alya. Ala is married, has four sons, works as an accountant.
Here are her answers to the question "Who am I?".
the analysis of the obtained results we note how many answers, in our example, eight. As a rule, less than ten of the answers people give modest, insecure. It is difficult to be in the spotlight, to discuss the features of his personality.
the Fact that the responses more than half of social roles, says that Asya used to live, focusing on the rules and expectations of society to a greater extent than on themselves.
see what roles are presented in figure ASI. All five of them. In the first place the designation of her gender, she is female. Then be presented to the family roles – wife, mother, employee. The list of answers completes – girlfriend. There is no role of "daughter", "sister" although life ASI mom and younger sister take a big place. On previous visits I already know that ASI complex relationship with his family, so worked an unconscious unwillingness to draw them.
Adjectives reflect the personality, allow us to see the emotional attitude of man to himself. Asya allow himself to Express only three emotional characteristics, she loves to swim in the pool, dreamy and caring.
Look at the appeal for the author used colors (ranking) and their representation in the drawing.
So, the first image associated with ASI with joy, the flower drawn in red, the most attractive for ASI color, but the color of the dresses women is on the last place for attractiveness.
Pay attention to it ASI. It is the awareness of your body is the leading factor of cumulopuntia. Asya says with her recent history. The seller in shop of clothes drew the attention of the ASI that she's too modestly dressed, and with her looks, can not afford much. She tells the story quietly, but smiling, it is seen that young woman a nice compliment to the seller. It is really very attractive, tall, slender, with regular features. In her answers to the question: "Who am I?" there are no definitions associated with appearance and the woman in the picture looks more like a girl, the female form is not drawn. My mother always told ACE that she is ugly, pitied her for it.
We can see such a flower and a figure of dreamy ASI and drawing when she is a friend.
Second response ASI: "I – wife". I draw her attention to the fact that the figure is not visible the hands of her husband.
On the third picture Asya's mother.
the following illustration Asya – worker.
the following illustration Asya – loving to swim in the pool.
On the sixth picture Asya – dreamy.
seven figure Ah – caring.
At last, the eighth picture Asya – girlfriend.

and Kosintsev, V. G.
At the end, Asya shared their experiences from the implementation of this technique, it was found that she was easy and interesting. At the same time clearly manifested the problem area, first of all, it is the non – acceptance of my own body, a conflict communicating with the son, and the jealousy to the husband.
Those responses that the client writes at the beginning of the list, the most conscious of him. As the performance of the technique may appear first announced, surprising for a man answers. If he's underdeveloped view of themselves or the client closed, he had difficulty answering the test question.
If the responses represented a variety of social roles in the absence of individual characteristics, this may indicate a lack of confidence, fear of self-disclosure, self-defense. The lack of social roles in the presence of individual characteristics may mean: personality; difficulties in the implementation of the rules; the identity crisis; the immaturity of the person.
If the self-describing present verbs, is a sign of activity and consciousness of human actions.
Well, when nouns, adjectives, and verbs are approximately equal numbers.
part of speech
the Prevalence of
the human Need for certainty, consistency
lack of responsibility
a weak differentiation of the identity
the activity, independence
self-doubt, underestimation of its effectiveness.
the Integration of the individual time is manifested in the case, if the answers are characteristics that are relevant to different time periods - past, present, future.
a Sign of psychological maturity is the presence of goals, future plans in connection with the satisfaction that is in the present.
If the subject of the request is different from the problems shown in the test, it says not enough deep understanding of the client or that he does not dare to tell that it really excites.
This technique helps to not only better understand the personality of the subject, but also to identify areas of concern, therefore, directions for future work.
