The article is devoted to the analysis of the specifics of self-designing as the intentional self-development background in the elderly age, as well as an amplification tool of self-development. It is shown that the specifics of the self-designing in the old age manifests itself in all its phases, namely at the stage of the reflection of development tasks, the stage of the design results determining, the design of self-development process and related technologies, as well as the criteria for self-development events. The acceleration of mental development in aging is obviously unacceptable, because of limited vital resources. Therefore, we can only speak about the specific amplification, enrichment of the mental development in aging. The conscious personal self-designing in the old age requires a special decision on the direction of such amplification-based understanding of their involution deficits. Every of the above steps of self-designing requires appropriate level of the conceptual thinking and reflected intellectual actions. Therefore, the mutual amplification of self-designing and intelligence of an elderly person may be considered as a factor-protector of dementia during the normal aging. At the same time the self-designing should be directed also to the general reinterpretation of the mental model of the world in the old age.
