The concept the psychological transitivity which includes uncertainty and transformations of time and space reveals. Influence of time (centuries) changes, modifications of world’s image and appearance of new technological space on emergence and development of transitivity is shown. Adequacy of complex construct “psychological chronotope” for studying of constancies and phenomenology of modern psychology is proved. Changes in phenomenology are shown in all spheres of mentality: first of all, in the ratio of image and the word, the accruing tendency of identity’s structure changes, difficulties in inter-generational transmission in transferring of values and rules, increasing influence of virtual space and the Internet on process of personal and social development. These transformations prove the grown need for methodology of modern psychology, creation of the flexible and easily transformed network of categories and research constructs which can study various aspects of mentality, changing them and changing together with them.

Keywords: transitivity, psychological chronotope, image of the world, identity, inter-generational transmission, real and virtual space, Internet
