The purpose of the work is to determine and analyze the peculiarities of correlations between indicators of personality features and anthropo-somatotypological parameters of the body of practically healthy women of middle intermediate somatotype. Primary personality indicators and anthropo-somatotypological parameters of the body of 17 practically healthy Ukrainian women of the first mature age of the middle intermediate somatotype were selected from the database of materials of the research center of National Pirogov Memorial Medical University, Vinnytsya.

In the analysis of correlations between personality indicators and anthropo-somatotypological parameters of the body of almost healthy Ukrainian women of middle intermediate somatotype, multiple, in most cases, moderate inverse, reliable and unreliable relationships of Spielberger’s personal anxiety index with all indicators of distal epiphyseal width (WDE) of limbs, almost half of the thickness of skin and fat folds (TSFF), endo- and mesomorphic components of the somatotype and bone and fat components of body weight; indicators of accentuation of the nature of the stuck and exciting types according to Shmishek with the majority of the transverse sizes of a trunk and a pelvis; indicators of accentuation of character of cyclothymic and demonstrative types according to Shmishek with the majority of longitudinal and third of circumferential sizes of a body; indicators of accentuation of the character of dysthymic and exalted types according to Shmishek with almost all indicators of WDE of the extremities, a third of the circumferential size of the body and the bone component of body weight; indicators of the scale of general internality of the level of subjective control, the level of subjective control in areas of achievement, and educational (professional) relations according to Rotter with the majority of cephalometric dimensions, body weight, most longitudinal, girth body sizes and indicators body weight; an indicator of the level of subjective control in the field of family relations according to Rotter with the majority of indicators of WDE of extremities and TSFF of extremities.
