Relationship Of Individual Psychological Personalities With Coping Behavior In Generation X

Abstract

The study of coping behavior is one of the most rapidly developing areas in the field of health, social and psychological research. Russian psychologists are actively developing theoretical and practical aspects of coping behavior as a phenomenon of regulation and self-regulation of the subject's behavior, personal development, well-being, health, resources, and human productivity. The article analyzes the relationship between individual psychological characteristics of personality and coping behavior in elderly people. The study involved retired persons living in the city of Vladikavkaz (Republic of North Ossetia-Alania). There were revealed positive correlations between emotionally oriented coping and demonstrativeness, suspicion, impulsivity, anxiety, tension, and depression. It is described that problem-oriented coping is typical for extroverts, sociable and gullible people, inclined to self-control, persistence, and responsibility. Avoidance-oriented coping is characteristic of people who are expressive, inquisitive, flexible in their behavior in external circumstances. Coping behavior of elderly people is associated with a system of goal-setting actions, predicting the outcome of the process, and creatively solving a problem situation. It is a complex multifactorial phenomenon that provides a person with productivity, good health, and well-being, through the conscious choice of behaviors following personal characteristics and the requirements of a stressful situation. Avoidance-oriented coping is characteristic of people who are expressive, curious, seeking new impressions, and flexible in their behavior in external circumstances. The data obtained can be considered in the development of educational and methodological programs in social psychology, developmental and developmental psychology, gerontopsychology, crisis psychology, psychological counseling, personality psychology, stress psychology, etc.
