The article presents the classification of individual stylistic features of the instrumental behavior of operators in the process of collective solution of homeostatic problems. The classification is based on the assessment of the level of motor activity and the level of leadership activity. Two-level motor activity gradations: a motor active and motor inactive levels, and the three-tiered gradation of leadership activity – a clear leader, the obvious leader and the nonleader (pedant) are used. On the basis of the selected levels, the classification has been developed that includes six styles of individual instrumental behavior.

On the basis of the developed classification, the concept of an individual style portrait, which characterizes such features of the operator's instrumental behavior that are fixed in the structure of his personality is formulated and justified. The style of the operator's activity is a unity of individual personality traits and situational features of instrumental behavior, which are formed in the process of group interdependent activity when the Homeostat technique is performed. Thus, it is established that the developed classification allows us to evaluate the features of the instrumental behavior of the operator in the process of solving homeostatic problems.


Keywords: group interdependent activity; group efficiency; Homeostat technique; motor activity; leadership activity; individual styles of instrumental behavior.
