The paper presents the results of the phenomenological study of the dependence in close interpersonal relationship between a man and a woman. Phenomenological analysis of interviews of respondents experiencing their close interpersonal relationships as dependent, conducted by the technique of A. Giorgi, allowed to propose a structural model of this phenomenon, highlighting the invariant and variable components of dependence in a relationship. A special attention to the vicious circle “closeness – estrangement” specific to dependent relationships is given in the paper. It is shown that differentiation of interpersonal dependence is based on the type of the deficiency that is characterized by the specific need of compensation by the partner from whom one depends. This deficiency corresponds to the content of the fundamental existential motivations, allocated by A. Laengle: lack in support, lack of experience of life, lack in self-acceptance and self-esteem. Frustration of fundamental existential motivation for the meaning was present in all cases of dependence.

This article discusses the problems of professional formation. The subject of this research is the self-esteem of the level of professionalism. Based on empirical data, the authors examine the self-esteem of professionals depending on the periods of their lives, associating with the stages of professional career. The theoretical basis leans on the ontogenetic approach, the foundation for periodization in which are the stages regarding the chronological age of a worker. Significant advantage of such periodization can be considered not only the possibility of studying the universal trends in professional development that do not depend on the type of activity and profession, but also the clearly specified stages of professional cycle viewed as a component of the human life cycle. The study is based on both, theoretical developments based on the study of the Russian and foreign scientific literature and empirical data obtained during statistical calculations based on RLMS-HSE (2014). The article presents data that testify to the fact that the subjective assessment of the level of professionalism increases at certain age periods, which may be due to the character of work, level of involvement into it, as well as personal qualities and abilities for self-realization in the selected discipline; all of these aspects allow considering this process in the context of ontogenetic approach.
