The Case of the Nation’s Qualitative Transformation: The Spread of the Subtypes of Psychologically Deformed Personality in Lithuania

Romualdas Grigas


The article begins with a socio-political evaluation of nature, development and the role of national identity. The focus is put on the features of change and social deformations. The baseline for the developed theoretical construction is a concept of “crisis personality”, defined by Kavolis. The author of the article develops it further, makes it more specific by extracting the subtypes of the said personality that are present in the Lithuanian reality.
These include the following: a traditionalist (ethnocollectivist); a modernist(utilitarianist); an outcast; a simuliacr; a person of an “outside class”. Social portraits of these subtypes are defined. Exceptional attention is drawn to the determination of these subtypes and the conditions of their development.
