Summary/Abstract: Purpose of Article. The article substantiates the psychological type classification based on universal ontological grounds, and demonstrates an ability to scan psychic characteristics of an individual. Thus, the mentioned idea provides an effective interaction of practices based on the psychoanalysis and art therapy. The certain claim opens the space for the actual interaction of psychoanalytic and art-therapy practices. Methodology. The methodology of the study applies methods of classification and typological analysis as well as integral and symbolic-numeric approaches. Their application allows to reveal the disadvantages of the existing quantitative classifications of psychological types and to offer the universal and qualitative ones instead. Scientific Novelty. The scientific novelty of the article is presented through the fundamentally new method of psychological types classification practice. The approach appeals to the conglomeration of objective psychic modes that form a certain psychological type (altogether there are 16 of them, which are systemically represented). In addition, the logical justification for the selection of mental functions, which are taken into account in the proposed qualitative classification, is provided for the first time. As a result, each person appears as a carrier of an exclusively individual set of specific mental qualities, unique as to their "bouquet," which can be "woven" from objective data, rather than reflections of a psychoanalyst. Conclusions. Only by using a qualitative classification of psychological types, psycho- and art therapy-related practices will develop a strong paradigmatic basis, thus, combining their actual ontological aspects in harmonious coherence, and allowing to accelerate the psychodiagnostic process radically. At the same time, from the scientific and theoretical perspective, the developed method will open new channel of the essence of man as a cosmic phenomenon realization.
