The aim of our study is to investigate the personality dynamics of Chinese Qi-gong masters. To eliminatte linguistic obstacles, the projective techniques.

They underwent a bettery of tests, namely the Szondi test and Luscher Colour test.
The results of Szondi test suggested that their psychology had strong affinity with the affect drive (trieb) inpulse.
Especially, the finding of an affinity for the "P vector" is the same as of YAMASHITA's a study (1975), which used the esoteric Japanese Buddhist Szondi test. (A propos de l'application du Test Szondien au diagnistic de la transformationde la personnlite chez les religieux)
This drive may imply that we can see the mobility of P vector sphere in persons with ascetic self discipline.
The results of the Luscher colur test suggested that two of the Qi gong masters had a subconscious wish to influence people.
We cannot confirm whether this result from effect of the experimental conditions on their personality trait, but we think this finding is valuable in connection with the Chinese Qi gong master's transmission of Qi to the receiver. Further evaluations are required to explicity define the personality dynamics of Chinese Qi gong masters.
