Objective: This scientific article aims to identify and analyze the multidimensional and structural features of personality formation. The study explores the interplay between content and evaluation components within personality formation and examines its temporal dimension. Additionally, the research investigates the theoretical aspects of personality formation, distinguishing between personal and social dimensions, and considers its ontogenetic development in relation to social categorization processes.


Methods: The study employs a comprehensive approach to understanding personality formation, drawing on psychophysiological, personal, social, and deep characteristics. Various types and influences of the social environment on personality formation are categorized based on parameters such as the presence of formation crises, decision-making strength, openness to new choices, and more. This classification serves as a framework for analyzing the diverse expressions and substantive characteristics of personality formation.


Results: The research reveals that personality formation is a dynamic, lifelong process that can undergo both progressive and regressive changes. It is shown that personality formation is rooted in social interactions and language assimilation, with alterations in the individual's social environment leading to corresponding changes in formation. Various types of personality formation, including ego-formation, group formation, and positive and negative forms, are identified and examined in detail.


Conclusions: The study concludes that an integral approach, encompassing psychophysiological, personal, social, and deep aspects, offers a promising avenue for comprehending personality formation. This research contributes to a deeper understanding of the complexity and diversity of personality formation processes, moving beyond surface-level classifications. Furthermore, it underscores the significant role of social interactions and environments in shaping personality formation, providing valuable insights for psychological research and practice.
