The article studies, on the base of literature sources, self-concept as a structural and dynamic aspect of Self. It is shown that self-concept is an open, relatively stable, but, at the same time, dynamic, nonlinear system. Self-concept is formed, developed, changed during social interactions, it is a result of personal cultural development in the socio-cultural environment that is created on the basis of cultural etalons. A person seeks to acquire culturally accepted traits. This psychic formation is relatively stable and, at the same time, prone to fluctuations and changes influenced by both internal and external factors. External factors can be traditional: family, school, as well as new ones: media, computer virtual environment. The analyzed work give reasons to consider self-concept as a systemic entity, consisting of notions about person’s own characteristics and abilities, ideas about capacities to interact with other people and the environment, value concepts and ideas about goals that may have a positive or negative direction. As a complex, hierarchically constructed system, self-concept can be viewed according to different bases, but self-images can be regarded as structural elements of an integrated self-concept that reveal person’s subjective knowledge about him/herself and generalize emotional and cognitive information about personal self.
