Crime Infestation of Criminal Personality from the Point of View of L. Szondi's Fate Analysis
Abstract.In this article the authors study the phenomenon of crime infestation of criminal personality depending on the severity of a committed crime. The research is based on the theory of personality and fate analysis offered by L. Szondi. Respondents include people who have been convicted of crime against person, property, sexual freedom and sexual integrity, as well as for illegal production, purchase, storate, transfer or sale of narcotic or psychotropic substances. The subject of the research is the structure of personal needs and motives, qualitative and quantitative description thereof depending on a group a respondent attributes to. The research method includes comparative analysis of needs and motives based on quantitative indicators (the level of needs structure tensity, evaluation of changes in 'mean motives' (Ð and Sch vectors), qualitative indicators (comparative evaluation of vector space histograms, interpretation of the leading needs and motives, comparative evaluation of horizontally fused one-direction tendencies of vector pictures), and analysis of data collected by usign the 'semantic key' method and relative parameters (vector space tendencies in needs and motives) of personality traits of criminals in aforesaid groups. The novelty of the research is caused by the fact that based on the foundation of personality (physical existential) one's personal criminogenic level (crime infestation) is defined based on particular parameters that describe personality traits of individuals depending on their attribution to a particular criminal group. Consequently, the thesis about systemic sustainable nature of the phenomenon of crime infestation based on the physical existential in humanistic structure of criminals' personality traits can be also used to analyze their needs and motives according to L. Szondi test.
