CHARACTERISTICS OF PROGNOSTIC ACTIVITY OF CANCER PATIENT

Abstract


The article is about investigation of one of the components of the stabilization of personality - prognostic activity. The obtained results suggest that cancer patients have lower level of prognostic competence than healthy people. This phenomenon may be a consequence of psychological defenses like unconscious reaction to the disease, which is a stressful situation with an uncertain and threatening prognosis. However, we consider that the low prognostic competence is the premorbid personality trait of cancer patients.
