Identitatea multiplă și condiția cognitiv-axiologică a studentului
The Multiple Identity and the Students Cognitive-value Condition
Abstract (Rezumat în limba engleză): The study comprises a theoretical part providing an analysis of the relation between personality, self as well as multiple and situational identity. Further debate is dedicated to the cognitive and axiological features of college students. The application of the "Who Are You?" test is meant to reveal changes in the self- identification to Romanian students. The time interval considered is fifteen years (1982-1997). The results obtained in the ranking of some values are also included (the time interval is the same). Some comparations are suggested concerning longitudinal data provided by the application of the "Who Are You?" test to American students. The approach relies on the hypothesis of the simultaneous increase of the spontaneous (impulsional) self and decrease of the institutional self in global self-identification.
