The problem of self designing considered in the context of postnon-classical psychology. Self designing is defined as a way of the personality to act on the basis of their own plan, design. Self-designing is based on the interpretation and understanding of previous personal and socio-cultural experience by immersion in a socio-cultural discursive space and by creation of own sense space as important factor in personal development. Interpretation of the personal design as a meaningful version of human existence is proposed. Being embodied in the discursive form, it rsonality awareness and builds the trajectory of its development corresponding to own aims and objectives. Such design becomes a sense dominant, basic centre of meaning creating that opens prospects for further personal growth. The ways of personal designing are identified: interpretation and reinterpretation of personal and socio-cultural experience, own symbols building; generation of personal narratives and of conception of human life. It is shown that the main discursive forms, which may implement personal design, are narratives, myths, legends about yourself, personal conception. The features of the construction of personal design at various stages of development are characterized. At the first, biological, stage personality acts on regulatory design, specified by adults. On the second – the social, design are given by sociocultural space. And on the third, personal, stage there is an ability to create specific designs to build the trajectory of his own life and own development.
