We show the historical conditions of origins of psychotechnics as direction in psychology, consider the evolution of psychotechnical approach in the context of Russian cultural-historical psychology. We described the characteristic of modern psychotechnical approach, essential for the formulation of the category of its development. The attention of modern psychotechnics is attracted to the term "combined subject", its importance is proved for context of psychotechnical practice, as well as for understanding the categories of development in the context of psychotechnics. We formulated historical model of development, according to which, instead of relying on periodization, we propose to consider the impossibility of overcoming the situation as a step development of the subject.

Keywords: psychotechnics, dialectics, development, subject, combined subject, crisis, critical situation
