The factorization of the results identified five significant (explaining 55 % of the variance) factors, the content of which allows to describe the role of different forms of aggression in the formation of the self-attitude, communicative competence, as well as in the functioning of cognitive, emotional and motivational components of the worldview. The prospects of using emotional facial expression recognition techniques for the study of motivational sphere of personality is shown.
