The purpose of the work is to compare some theories of personality structure according to the mutual correspondence of the choice of “identical” people in the same life situations.. Initially, a test of 47 questions was formed. It opposed each other 11 of the most common motives. The questions of such a test were answered by people assigned to a particular group: by type of personality, by type of character, Big Fife, by type of personality and character. A total of 420 people participated. It was assumed that a better theory would give a higher percentage of mutual correspondence of answers to questions for "identical" people. The largest percentage of the same answers was shown by people close in age with identical types of personality and character. For people over 33, the effect of the age factor on the relevance of responses is significantly reduced. The Big Five concept (TIPI) showed more modest results, apparently explained by the inadequate replacement of only two variants of emotional stability / instability with a more detailed format of 8 character types. The results are unstable due to significant changes in the responses to the motivational test during repeated testing. This suggests that 100% compliance with any personality model is unattainable due to the difficulties of self-identification of the tested. The results can lead to a change in the methodology for assessing personality structure models, the allocation of alternative abilities from the traditional Big Five to four, and the replacement of emotional stability with character types.
