The paper highlights the importance for social psychological research practice of the task of defining integral intragroup status positions of particular members of a real functioning contact community. The following three methodological tools are described: sociometry, ref- erence measurement technique, and a technique for identifying informal intragroup power structure. In its final part the paper proposes an algorithm that enables one to identify the categories to which members of a small group belong (i.e. high-status, middle-status and low- status member categories) basing on the integral indicators of intragroup structures related to attraction, reference and power.
