SD total deviation from the autogenous norm

Interpretation of the eight-color test by M. Luscher

The Luscher color test is based on the assumption that the choice of color often reflects the focus of the subject on a certain activity, mood, functional state, and the most stable personality traits. Luscher’s color diagnostics allows you to measure the psychophysiological state of a person, his stress resistance, activity and communication skills. The Luscher test allows you to determine the causes of psychological stress, which can lead to the appearance of physiological symptoms.

One of the methods of interpreting the selection results is to estimate the position of the primary colors. If they occupy a position further than the fifth, it means that the properties characterized by them, the needs are not satisfied, therefore, there is anxiety, a negative state. Primary colors, according to Max Luscher, symbolize the following psychological needs:

No. 1 (blue) – the need for satisfaction, peace, stable positive attachment;

No. 2 (green) – the need for self-affirmation;

No. 3 (red) – the need to be active and achieve success;

· No. 4 (yellow) – the need for perspective, hopes for the best, dreams.

The interpretation of the calculated parameters characterizing the human condition is presented below.

G heteronomy – concentricity

The interval of change of the indicator from -9.9 to + 9.9:

Positive values for this indicator indicate that a person is heteronomous, and negative values indicate autonomous.

An autonomous person is independent of external influences and is able to influence events that happen to him, strives for success, and the characteristic of heteronomy indicates that a person depends on external factors that control him, a tendency to addiction, and spontaneity of behavior.

To concentricity – eccentricity

The interval of change of the indicator from -9.9 to + 9.9:

Positive values for this indicator indicate that the person is concentric, and negative values indicate eccentricity.

Concentric – means “occupied with the subjective”, i.e. showing interest only in himself and in what is an extension of himself, focusing on his problems. Eccentric – “occupied with the objective”, i.e. showing interest in the environment – objects and people, interested in others as a source of influence or receiving help.

LB personality balance

The interval of change of the indicator from -9.9 to + 9.9:

Positive values – personal properties are balanced, form an integral harmonious complex, negative values – an imbalance of personal properties, the personality is unstable, contradictory.

WB vegetative balance

The interval of change of the indicator from -9.9 to + 9.9:

Positive values – sympathetic tone prevails, negative – parasympathetic tone.

The automatic nervous system can be divided into two opposite subsystems. One of the systems, called sympathetic, controls all processes that are related to activity, emergency, or what you consider an emergency. The sympatheticus is activated when we get up in the morning, when we are physically active, tense, scared, need to protect ourselves, mentally astute and analytical, or about to have sex. In these situations, the sympathetic sends out information that releases hormones that speed up heartbeat and breathing, raise blood pressure, and break down deposits of fats and carbohydrates, as well as tissues in your body. This process, which happens to mobilize energy (called the catabolic process), sends blood to working muscles, increases sweat production, or lifts goose bumps. Sympathicus is often defined by the “fight or flight” system and corresponds to a situation where there is a need to be energetic.

The diametrical opposite of the sympathetic is the parasympathetic. They are like day and night. The parasympatheticus controls processes related to calmness and relaxation, sleep, digestion and creativity. Information from the parasympathetic and related hormones slows the heartbeat, lowers blood pressure, sends blood away from moving muscles and other organs, starts the process of digestion of food, provides tissue building (muscles, among others) and energy deposits (called the anabolic process).

Sympathic activation is the body’s positive response to stress. Sympathicus is vital because it helps us take action in a critical situation. Without him, we would not exist today. Stressful situations are actually good for our body as they train the sympathetic which learns from them and occasionally improves the body’s ability to handle stressful situations better. However, as you will see later, stress is only useful if it is replaced by a sufficiently long parasympathetic-dominated period. In other words, the system must recover in order to function optimally and improve.

RB operability

The interval of change of the indicator is from 9 to 20.9

The higher the value of the indicator, the higher the performance of a person.

With stress

Interval of indicator change from 0 to 41.8

The higher the value of the indicator, the higher the stress (tension) of a person.

Performance and stress are inversely related.

SD total deviation from the autogenous norm

The SO indicator allows predicting the effectiveness and success of activities (including professional ones):

1-2 points – the absence of unproductive neuropsychic tension. The subject is active, his actions are varied, the efficiency is high. Emotional mood is optimistic. Developed volitional self-control. At the same time, the will is not a tool for suppressing some part of the personality, it only harmonizes the various, but not contradictory desires of the subject. With the appropriate motivation, the subject is able to work intensively for a long time. In extreme situations, he effectively mobilizes and focuses on the task.

3 points – an insignificant level of unproductive neuropsychic tension. The subject is dominated by the installation of vigorous activity. His energy resources are sufficient for more or less regular outbreaks of hyperactivity and tension, inaccessible to most other people. In conditions of motivated (interesting) activity, he does not experience difficulties with operational and long-term memorization and reproduction of information. In general, he does not strive for thrills. Get out of stressful situations with dignity.

4 points – the average level of unproductive neuropsychic tension. The subject copes with his duties within the average established requirements. In a familiar environment, he moves from work to rest and vice versa, from one type of activity to another without significant difficulties. If necessary, he is able to overcome fatigue with an effort of will, but after that, a long “train” of reduced efficiency is visible in his affairs and well-being. To maintain health and performance, the subject needs a relatively clear subjective division of work and rest time.

5 points – an increased level of unproductive neuropsychic tension. The potential for expedient activity of the subject is very low. For this reason, he is forced to force himself to do certain necessary things. Constantly acting volitional control increases overwork. Long-term intensive work is likely to cost the subject a lot in neuropsychic terms. At the same time, it will be very unequal in terms of productivity and quality in different periods of time. The general emotional background is characterized by increased excitability, anxiety, uncertainty. In a stressful situation, disruption of activity and behavior is likely.

6-7 points – pronounced unproductive neuropsychic tension. The subject is highly fatigued. His attention is easily distracted by extraneous things, while being “stuck” on emotional experiences is typical. The absence of a stable hierarchy of motives makes the subject reactive and unfocused. The mood in the shortest possible time can fluctuate between exaltation and depression, excitement and impotence. The emotional state is dominated by anxiety, anticipation of trouble, powerlessness and lack of desire to do anything. In an extreme situation, the subject is unreliable.

With repeated testing of the subject in approximately the same conditions familiar to him, the SD indicator is relatively stable. The difference in the results of the two surveys in terms of SD in 2-4 points is not significant (the most reliable results are obtained by averaging the results of several tests).

In a tense, stressful environment, the CO indicator can change significantly. At the same time, a decrease in the CO value indicates that the subject has certain reserves of working capacity and stress resistance. An increase in SD values reflects low stress resistance, psychophysiological “helplessness” in the face of difficulties, and the prognosis for success in this case is unfavorable.
