The present study is devoted to the definition of main qualitative and quantitative characteristics of emptiness of meaning in life (according to Frankl’s concept of noogenic neurosis) and its connection to personality traits: motivation, alexithymia, reflexivity, action control and temperament. A sample was taken of respondents from different social groups and included 28 female and 22 male with an age range of 17 to 24.
