The leading tendency is the steady, pivotal quality of an individual, which by the roots reaches the type of higher nervous activity, constitutionally defined properties of a man and determines individual characteristics of adaptive mechanisms, the style of thinking and interpersonal behavior, the power of needs and motivation, the type of reaction to stress. The steady leading individual tendency affects the formation of higher levels of personality – social orientation, hierarchy of values, conscious motivation, moral orientations. The ITQ methodology allows to diagnose individual and psychological features according to eight basic scales: 1 – extraversion; 2 – spontaneity; 3 – aggressiveness; 4 – rigidity; 5 – introversion; 6 – sensitivity;
7 – anxiety; 8 – lability (emotion).

The results of the study proved the diagnostic verification of the stated questionnaire and the possibility of its use for the purpose of psychological selection of the personnel of the National Police of Ukraine.
