					For example, a living room cannot be altogether a dining room, a bedroom
cannot serve a function of a study at the same time. In terms of
psychology, the most important here is privacy and even intimacy of lives
of house dwellers. On the contrary, an open interior is a designer's
realization of conception of an available society showing off its life,
active, dynamic and communicative style of behaviour and, probably, the
priority of social and business interests over the personal ones.
Nowadays this type of house structuring is realized by way of flexible
house planning, organizing a space which can be clearly seen from any
place, which is divided not into rooms but into functional areas. Two
centuries ago architects reached this type by creating an enfilade of
adjacent rooms.       The problem of what type of planning to choose when
creating harmonising interior can be solved very easily. Those who prefer
loneliness, who avoid noisy parties and social contacts, will be
satisfied with a close interior. And people who got used to be in the
centre of attention, who strive for widening the circle of acquaintances,
often associate such a choice with a psychological solitary confinement.
Developing the design of a stimulating interior requires much more
responsible and creative approach. It goes without saying that the shock
therapy tactics is inappropriate here. Compensatory psychotherapeutic
idea of stimulating design is realized by way of efficient use of two
basic techniques: combination of close or open interior and some
intermediate variant - half-open housing space. Let's try to see
everything in practice.

  Suppose the task is in creating a stimulating interior for a person who
experiences some difficulties due to his being unsociable,
uncommunicative, being plunged into himself all the time. The first
method is to create a single open space instead of a number of separate
common rooms (for example, a living room, a kitchen and a study) with one
isolated room serving a harmonizing element. The second method is in
partial limiting the degree of isolation of each of the rooms when
massive walls are replaced by light transforming partition walls, curtain
walls or glass panels. An approach to planning the stimulating interior
for a person with impetuous, choleric temperament will be quite opposite
by its goals but will have much in common with the previous variant by
its practical realization. Dominating here will be the tendency of
enforcing and dividing single space areas by mobile partitions which
visually reduce the volume of a separate room but do not make an
impression of a completely isolated room.       Also very important is to
think over a colour palette of decoration, general style of the premises
as well as furniture and separate objects. With a psychological approach
to interior designing this is the most important stage. There is no
universal formula here. It is possible to give general recommendations,
but only proceeding from a conventional division of temperaments into
cholerics, sanguines, melancholics and phlegmatics and their
psychoemotional characteristics. As an alternative modern psychology
suggests similar gradation into extraverts and introverts of active and
passive types. It is clear that each type is very rare in its pure form -
temperaments of most personalities can be referred to the mixed type.
