Doctor of Psychology, Professor, Chair of the Special Psychology, Department of Clinical and Special Psychology, Moscow State University of Psychology and Education, Moscow, Russia

Earlier we have developed criterion for delimitation of psychic norm and pathology, which are then subjected to repeated analysis and evaluation in the process of our researches and practices (Belopolskaya, 1998). As a result, the combined test was developed, which includes three partial criteria. This article contains examples of usage of the criteria and their possible combinations. The problem of relativity of the concept of «mental norm» is under discussion.

Keywords: psychic norm, mental pathology, a single criterion, the combined test

Column: Psychodiagnostics
