Отождествление-разотождествление с собой посредством Другого: парадокс самотождества Я
The research is focused on the problem of personality reaching its self-identity through identification and de-identification with I through the important Other, during reflexive dialog. Personological approach has been used to solve this problem, which is based on consistent creation and mutual refraction of conceptual, cultural-phenomenological and reflexive-dialogical models of identification and de-identification of I with Self in relation to the Other. The novelty of the research consists, firstly, in raising the issue of the self-identity of I in terms of paradoxically inseparable unity of identification and de-identification with I as opposite I-actions. Secondly, the research offers psychological consideration of the importance of the Other in mediating the acts of identification and de-identification of I with Self during reflexive dialog between I and the Other. Thirdly, existing understanding of the genesis of dialogical I is enriched by the idea of the structure of dimensions of the internal dialog I – Other, considered as the dynamics of identification and de-identification of I with Self. Fourthly, the processes of identification and de-identification with self and reaching self-identity of I are analysed from the point of view of search and discovery of unknown I. Fifthly, empirical research resulted in defining of the forms of self-identity of I in the aspect of openness to experience, which depend on the level and dynamics of identification and de-identification of I with Self though the Other. There are developing, maturing, controversial, rigid and regressing self-identity among those forms.
