If we consider the choice of rest through PCM method – The process of the communication model reveals why in the same family, team or group of friends there may be diametrically opposed preferences regarding recreation.

There are six personality types. Each of them has certain characteristics, and most importantly, their own psychological needs that must be satisfied.
“Touching”: loves family and friends, surrounds everyone with care and warmth.
“Rebel”: perceives the world through game contact, loves freedom and fun.
“Logical”: He treats any task responsibly, is punctual, disciplined, hones his skills in his favorite business with pleasure.
“Maker”: does not sit in one place, charming, fast, likes to compete, take risks and win.
“Dreamer”: fantasizes, prone to introversion, contemplation.
“Persistent”: perceives the world through values and beliefs, adheres to principles, argues.
Of course, several personality types can be combined in one person. For example, if you like to dream and fantasize, you often have your head in the clouds, this does not mean that punctuality or love of freedom and fun are alien to you. And yet, a certain type of personality is predominant and stands out against the background of the others, and the rest goes as an addition.
