In this paper, attention has been paid to the study of the individual psychological and criminological features of acquisitive and violent criminals. The purpose of the research is to find out the peculiarities of unconscious aggression of nonchronic, chronic and extreme-chronic acquisitive and violent criminals. The non-chronic type included twice sentenced criminals; the chronic type -criminals who had served their prison term 3-5 times; extreme-chronic type -those who had 6 or more
... 6 or more convictions. The research tool used was the test "Hands" by Wagner, designed to diagnose the indicators of personality aggression. The study sample included male acquisitive and violent criminals with a total of 294 people who were sentenced to imprisonment for unlawful acts. The participants of the study were divided into groups of corresponding criminal orientation and a certain type of crime reproducibility. The group of acquisitive criminals comprised 143 people, 29 of them were non-chronic, 86 -chronic, 28extreme-chronic. The group of violent criminals included 151 people, 29 of who were non-chronic, 93 -chronic, 29extreme-chronic. The results of the study indicated a combination of aggressive and directive indicators of the identity of criminals that proved an increased probability of aggressive behavior, the lack of desire to take into account the opinion, feelings, rights, and intentions of others. The indicators obtained can promote the development of effective methods of rehabilitating those who serve the prison term for acquisitive and violent crimes.
