Abstract

This work deals with psychological peculiarities and age-related capacities for personal self-designing in adolescence that is viewed as self-prediction on the basis of authorial formation of the life strategy with own goals and guiding lines of self-actualisation. It was empirically proved that sensitivity towards self-designing is characteristic of adolescence. That is also underpinned by the following conclusions: adolescent boys and girls perceive their life as unique within the framework of its socio-cultural context; they view their own life history events as emotionally full. Furthermore they are uturedirected and search for the life meaning. A certain amount of selfdesigning in different spheres of activity is determined in the development of the adolescent personality. Self-projects by adolescent personalities mostly take place in the sphere of self-actualisation and hobbies. The boys do not make authorial self-predictions in the sphere of intimate life (as in the sphere of interpersonal relations) yet. The investigation of sense structure of the narrative texts by boys and girls showed that the establishment of the independent personal projects is caused by the capacity for meaning creation; orientation towards the events-rich present and towards positive active future; and reinterpretation of the past "duties" by means of іnterpretation of the personal experience within a framework of self-designing. The given characteristics of discursive practices facilitate the higher level of controlling own meaning space. Among those are: logical order of a many-sided view on own life history; active and positive interpretation of own experience, event-richness of the present; responsibility for the life events; future orientation of the narratives.
