These activities relate to the isolation of psychological risks in professional activities, because allow to exclude the selection of workers who are not able to cope with extreme working conditions. The research involved 70 diamond workers from four professional groups: drivers; workers; inspectors and engineers. The research used methods of psychological testing and questioning. Thus, the controllers are distinguished by features of such types as dysthymic, pedantic and stuck. They are characterized by weak contact, laconic. In conflicts, they are initiators, an active party.
