The “problem” approach to understanding individuality (PTL) attempts to provide insight into the consistent manner of behaviour of individuals in diverse (“problem”) situations. The starting points of the conception of this approach are the theory of choice and the logic of software programming in computer science. In their aspirations to both satisfy their respective needs and to develop (or grow), individuals attempt to effectively solve problems in as many life situations as possible. Analysing the preconditions of successful problem solving, i.e. the dimensions of the problem situations, PTL attempts to provide some insight into the phenomena of development, maturity and different forms of psychopathology from the point of view of the level of success in problem solving.
