DESCRIPTOR POTENTIAL OF THE UKRAINIAN LANGUAGE FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF NEW METHODS OF LEXICAL ANALYSIS OF PERSONALITY STRUCTURE
Introduction. The relevance of the study is caused by the existing need to develop psycholexical research, which will allow the universalization and operationalization of theoretical psychological constructs and models. The specifics of psycholexical research are revealed. The main advantages and limitations of the psycholexical method are analyzed.
Methodology. Prospects for the analysis of the Ukrainian language with the help of a new method of separating the factor structure of low and high dimensions are presented. The initial provisions and procedure of psycholexical research on the basis of the Ukrainian lexicon of personality are described.
Results. Based on the determination of the appropriate number of factors and the comparison of different methods of data processing, the choice of personality descriptors and the rotation of the factors, structures of different dimensions are singled out on the basis of the same data.
Discussion. The authors emphasized on the need to analyze the resulting structures, taking into account the theory of the psycholexic industry, as well as giving theoretical meaning to open dimensions, checking their descriptive and explanatory meaning on the way to creating a theoretical model.
