Personality Determinants of the Forms of Addictive Behavior of Internal Affairs Officers (on the Example of Urgency Addiction)

166

Abstract

The article examines the professional activity of the internal affairs officers who often con-centrate on the imposed work schedule, getting out of synch with their inner (body’s) clock. Disturbed synchronisation with one’s natural order is accompanied by psychoemotional stress, the latter becomes chronical and habitual. The study aims at revealing personality determinants of addictive behavior of internal affairs officers. The theoretical conclusions are substantiated with the experimental part of the research during which the following has been accomplished: 1) Relationship between one’s personality determinants and one’s ur-gency addiction has been established; 2) Personality determinants contributing to preven-tion of urgency addiction have been identified. Hence the need for developing one’s own personality determinants that would be able to deal with emergence and development of urgency addiction (positive value orientations, positive view of the future, well-developed personality’s regulatory qualities (flexibility and self-reliance)) during one’s training and performance.
