Our study was devoted to identifying and clarifying the relationship between psychosomatic and conflict-generating personality factors. The optimal ratio of the structural components of a personality and the maintained hierarchical subordination of levels ensures the preservation of basic intrapsychic connections, fortitude and stability of the psyche at a current stage of development (the structural aspect of health). At the same time, the interactions of these components and the coherence of the main mental processes determine the unique nature of an individual's holistic and unique personality (the dynamic or procedural aspect of health).
By determining the characteristics for impacting conflict-generating factors in terms of forming a specialist’s personality and maintaining the optimal functioning, we found that somatic pathology had different intensity and the links the psyche-somatic problems are various: some correlations increased, others faded. Thus, a restructuring took place during the disease; changes appeared in the information and energy components of the state. We proved that conflict-generating factors are a prerequisite for an occurrence of somatic diseases. Changes occurred in the states were interpreted as an influence of conflict-generating factors.
It was found that the most important factor influencing psychosomatic disorders was a social stress: problematic relationships in the professional sphere, including insufficient professional fulfilment (non-professional work, forced labour, unemployment, etc.), interpersonal conflicts with the leader or the team and related domestic problems. The second most important cause of these symptoms was emotional discomfort in the family and a family stress: unfavourable relationships with loved ones, difficult financial situation, lack of reliable support, and so on. So, the main guidelines in the life of psychosomatically healthy people are orderly life, not limited by the space of the existing environment and interpersonal relationships.
