This study is based on the question about latent maneuvering depression among men and how far factors such as helplessness, life satisfaction and achievement motivation are connected with that. Furthermore follows the question if variables like age, marital status, level of education, occupational group, child status and income have an influence on depression. This study relies on a three-part man typology.

The data collection is performed on a quantitative and a qualitative level. With the aid of a half standardized questionnaire 133 men, aged between 17 and 69 years, are asked. Important concerns in the men’s view are shown by an analysis of six interviews and five group discussions man biographies. The processing of the data is edited with the statistics program SPSS 16 and based on the contents analysis to Mayring (2008). Scientific knowledge of man research find their application as theoretical explanation approaches in attention and concepts of depression, learned helplessness, motivational and system theoretical concepts, need pyramid, flow experience, experience orientation and the individualization theory. Among other insights the central results show that the factor analysis confirmed three man types: the modern man, the traditional man and the mixed type. The type analysis reveals an advance towards the modern man. The modern man is on average a little younger than the traditional man and the mixed type. This study found out that from all 133 men six have a depression and two have a latently maneuvering depression. Taken as a whole, 41 men could be assigned to the tendentious depression type and 92 men to the tendentious non-depression type.

The mood type shows an important influence on the dependent variables, which is different to the not significant influence of the social features and the man type. Nevertheless, interesting differences between the man types can be established. The depression (emotional/physical impairment) reveals a stronger expression to the traditional men in comparison with the other man types. The tendentious depression type has a more intensive fear, is sadder and more hopeless in relation to the tendentious non-depression type. The correlations of constructs of depression show connections in conformity with the theory. There is a very significant positive connection between hopelessness and depression. The achievement motivation is hardly influenced by a depression, the life satisfaction, however, diminishes.
