Experience of many years gained during studies into the clinical picture, the time-course of changes and diagnosis of psychopathies in young men as well as the clinical and catamnestic examinations and investigation of the medical documentation on over 1,000 psychopathic personalities enabled one to discover certain clinical facts and regularities pertaining to the structure of psychopathic reactions, types of psychopathic responses and decompensations, transitory personality disorders, and dynamic (staged) diagnosis. The classification and nomenclature of psychopathies have been specified. The data obtained attest to the necessity of elaborating new approaches to the problem of psychopathies.
