This article focuses on the development of methods to measure personality and cognitive predisposition to monosemantic or polysemantic context generation (PCG).In accordance with the concept of V.S. Rotenberg, we assumed that PCG was connected with manual functional asymmetry. We developed four tests: one was designed to measure personality PCG, the other three measure cognitive PCG. Approbation samples consisted of 160—736 participants. Cronbach's alpha (0.67—0.93) and split-half coefficient (0.72—0.93) were calculated for all tests, for two of them test-retest reliability (0.47—0.91) was measured. Variance of personal PCG on 21.7% is explained by the variance of personality traits “reticence-sociability” and “concreteness-abstractness”. Personality and cognitive PCG are interconnected, but they have a fair amount of specificity. Manual functional asymmetry is weakly connected with personal PCG (not more than 1.5% of the common variance) and is not connected with cognitive PCG

Keywords: personality trait, cognitive strategy, functional interhemispheric asymmetry, manual asymmetry, hemispheric specialization

Column: Psychological Diagnostics
