Personality changes are often viewed from the angle of big events occurring in personality structure during a considerable period of time. But how does one's personality develop at the moment of maturation? What happens to one's personality when it is being influenced by some illness? Psychology does give the detailed answers to these questions. But this article raises the question of personality changes in a different manner. There is an idea to conduct a series of experiments on the psychological microcosm by analogy with quantum physics that studies the physical microcosm. What are the "elementary particles" from which the process of personality changes consists of? What is the logic of this process? What prepares the macro changes in one's personality and what blocks these changes? These are the questions that need to be answered. The article describes the preliminary stage of the research on personality icrodynamics in the process of understanding psychotherapy. Besides that, it includes reliminary results obtained in a Ph.D. research. The research materials are the protocols of twentyminute consultations. Twenty five protocols were processed at the time of writing the article.
