Age dynamics of formation of identity, degree of reflexivity and awareness of own psychological reality is shown and empirically proved upon transition from teenage age to youthful. Also specifics of a self-categorization of teenagers and young men in various groups and communities (educational student's groups differently of profile higher education institutions, a cadet boarding house for girls, summer recreation camp) are highlighted. It was shown that the structure of identity and characteristics of self-presentation of modern generation boldly reflect specifics of difficult social and psychological reality. In particular, the influence of the conditions of the standard restriction of freedom and variability of self-presentation on the structure and content of the identity of adolescent girls from the cadet corps was shown. And also communication of a self-categorization of the personality with a sociocultural context and being in demand in an in-group of these or those components was revealed. Empirical illustrations of age and sociocultural specifics of designing of identity are presented, that is expressed in differences of a dominant and rank disposition of its components not only in a vertical of development of the personality (teenage and youthful level of society), but also in its horizontals (groups with the fixed and diffusion borders and also features of the existential organization) (N = 228).
