The study can be seen as a pilot one to investigate the intrapsychic bonds of coping strategies, rigidity and a part of creativity (divergent thinking). The main results show, that more rigid individuals have tendencies to be submissive and nonintrusive in social relationships, they are emotionally instable, hostile and not confident to their environment. Creativity can be an effective regulator of successful coping. Prosocial fulfillment can boost successful coping with demanding situations, it is an important precondition of effective 'functioning' of a healthy and integrated personality. This obviously assumes increased level of flexibility and it means that by a slow removal of manifestations of an individual's rigidity, by a more effective education, the selection of coping strategies can be channeled in an adequate direction. And this is the reason why it is also inevitable further to observe and examine their intrapsychic bonds.
