Background: The phenomenon of longevity has been studied over recent decades by many scientists representing a range of scientific disciplines, applying different research strategies and methodologies.
Objective: Our team of scholars sought to study the phenomenon of longevity in Prykarpattia (Ukraine) by applying an interdisciplinary methodology, drawing on the experience of gerontology, genetics, psychiatry and psycholinguistics, and studying the effects that influence the state of long-living persons neuroticization during the Covid-19 outbreak.
Method: The study employed Ludwig Wasserman’s pen-and-paper method of determining the level of neuroticism, which allows for both group and individual use in the form of a questionnaire survey. The questionnaire consists of 40 questions, which must be answered by agreeing or disagreeing with a ‘yes’ or ‘no’. When processing the data, the number of positive responses was counted.
Results: Using Wasserman’s neuroticization methodology, the number of long-living persons with high and intermediate levels of neuroticization was determined to be 5.13 in 2021 compared to 2018 and 1.18 in 2018, according to the pre-pandemic questionnaire results.
Conclusion: In the course of the psycho-emotional state of the Prykarpattia long-livers study we have established that in addition to genetic determinants and external factors an essential part in shaping longevity is played by the mental state of a person, a wholesome coherence of emotionality and speech, harmonious balancing of non-verbal psycho-emotional resonances and logical iconic-conventional consistency in the speech practice of a person. An important demonstration of active and long-term physical existence is the formation of a special type of world-perception and world-experience, which arranges the inner emotional-neurotic space of a person through a system of coherent, logically and pragmatically aligned internal visual-verbal macro- and microcosms.
