The Author suggests by various arguments that the usefulness of tests in the clinical field is overestimated nowadays, where they should be referred to in particular cases; on the contrary, tests are relevant to research. On one hand, he acknowledges the importance of categorial and dimensional diagnosis, on the other he stresses its provisional value for psychoanalysis (it can be reviewed along the treatment thanks to new understandings) and, first of all, its embrication with the developing clinical relationship and process. Therefore, diagnostic and therapeutical process should not be strictly distinguished. Then, the paper shows the parameters which the psychoanalytic diagnosis requires: istinctual points of "fixation", defence mechanisms, kinds of object relations, Self organization, reality sense and, particularly, transference and countertransference
