A degree of divergence between real and ideal self-image performs essential role in a structure of personality and it is one of the tools to measure the level of self-acceptance. Basing on a theory of mature personality, we can assume that only low degree of divergence between real and ideal self-image has a positive meaning for individuals' functioning. The cohort consists of 111 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and 111 healthy persons. ln each cohort there were 81 women and 30 men. ln order to measure the level of divergence between real and ideal self-image the Test of Adjectives ACL-37 was used. The comparison of results should provide a level of similarity between real and ideal self-image through coefficient D. The analysis of the level of divergence between real and ideal self-image and its connection with psychical functioning was conducted with two methods: 1. Questionnaire CISS by N.S. Endler and J.D.A. Parker. 2. Questionnaire of Emotional Control by J. Brzeziński. Patients with RA have greater tendency than the healthy population to perceive themselves more positively. Psychological traits of individuals with lower divergence between real and ideal self-image indicate more proper and mature adjusted means of functioning.
