Interdependence between cognitive style parameters and features of learning for adolescent individuals

The study of correlation between the cognitive style and specifics of learning features allows us to understand better the mechanisms of mental activity. Styles characterize intellectual activity at different stages. Such a cognitive style as fielddepence-fieldindepence is charactarized by selectiveness of attention and belongs to the group of cognitive affective styles. Stable diversity of prevailing perceptual strategies causes a diversity of educational activity. However, the style properties, influenced by specially organized learning, have a resource of mobility. In the process of learning, the purposeful evolvement of the ability to perform spontaneous intellectual control is important. According to the results obtained, we assume that subjectively specified ability of learning at the level of the individual experience or the theoretical foundation of gained experience combines with cognitive style parameters. During the investigation, we have found out that for solving puzzles about physics both verbal (applying conceptual apparatus) and nonverbal (imagination, creative thinking) intellect are required. Therefore, we assume that effectiveness of solving puzzles is caused by fast exchange of information between right and left hemispheres, because they are responsible for different strategies of thinking. Probably intelligence is a cognitive style, which appears to be a grade of complementarity of left hemisphere’s and right hemisphere’s thinking when solving non-standard intellectual tasks. Consequently, the most effective way of processing information for a student to some extent depends on his/her intellectual skills and cognitive style.

Key words: cognitive style, cycles of learning, intellectual ability.

There have been defined the phases, mechanisms and forms of individual transformation in the social subject. The role of intercourse as a form of transfer of individual culture, social norms and values of society is studied. The socialization is found to be an important mechanism for personality’s entering in the society, its development and implementation of various social roles and gaining status. It is a double-sided process, where the personality, on the one hand, learns the culture of the society, on the other – shares with them its individual culture. The socialization is shown to distinguish two mechanisms of person’s integration in a social system: proper socialization, where the basic parameters of the personality and social control as preventing deviations from existing standards of behavior in society are formed by means of cultural patterns. The socialization is established to be divided into primary (formation of personality structures) and secondary (identification of the individual with the universality) according to stages. The process of socialization is proved to have two forms: social adaptation (adaptation of the individual to the norms and values of society) and interiorization (the process of formation of internal structures of the human psyche, transferring of the elements of the environment in the inner “Me”).

The low and middle level of the spiritual potential is inherent for the 18% and 78% of the senior pupils, correspondingly). Young people with «high spirituality level» manifest negative emotional states to the less degree (anxiety, inferiority complex and hostility).

Pragmatic evaluation of overcoming behavior’s religious methods

In the article a pragmatic assessment of religious ways of overcoming difficulties is given. It was found that the tendency of adult efforts to involve God to solve the problems associated with positive changes only in the emotional sphere – believers experiencing peace and confidence. Despite the dominance of individuals with positive self-image, who cooperate with the highest power, we notice decrease in self-esteem and self-acceptance in them. Strict adherence to religious teachings on how to overcome difficulties, accompanied, however, the appearance of rigidity behavior. It becomes more difficult for a person to adequately respond to the changing situation. Pragmatic evaluation of negative type of religious ways of overcoming difficulties indicates predominately negative consequences for the individual. It was found that the faithful easily gets into depressed mood and desire to respond to changing situations disappears quickly. Persons emphasize negative aspects of self-image, the level of self-esteem and selfacceptance gets lower. The most useful change for the individual will be observed in the cases where believers will effectively combine different ways of overcoming religious behavior – cooperation with God the revaluation of His omnipotence. Adult Christians will be characterized by elation, positive self-perceptions and behavioral flexibility, which provide fast and adequate response to the situation.

This is the language dictate as signifier over the subject as a significant.

On the problem of the formation of Ukrainian people’s psyche

An attempt to analyze the original approach of prominent psychologist of Ukrainian Diaspora of XX century A. Kulchytskyi to the problem of formation of Ukrainian people’s psyche was made. Alexander Yulianovych understands the Ukrainian psyche as perfect, that means only in «ideal» the existing type of the «structure», connection of qualities of mind, will and heart, which most real Ukrainian psyche is close to. The main factors that shaped the national psyche, hence the Ukrainian human’s psyche are specified: racial, geographical (geopsycical), historical, social and psychological (public), cultural, deep psychological factor. It was found that the scientist examines the human psyche as a structure consisting of three layers: somatopsychic (feeling), tymopsychic (sense) and poyopsychic (thinking and will). The sun affects the lowest layer of psychic structure – somatopsychic. More or less sunlight causes vitality or depressed mood. The perception of the landscape, that is the perception of all forms of geographic terrain affects the middle layer of psychic structure – tymopsychic. The top layer of psychic structure – poyopsychic is affected by the qualitative and quantitative peculiarity of the geographical environment in its relation to the needs, aptitudes and attitudes of a person influencing on his perception of the world, therefore, his relation to the world. Thus, the many-sided talent of O. Kulchytskyi as outstanding by the concept of Ukrainian people’s psyche requires additional research and study, which is essential for a holistic understanding of the outstanding Ukrainian.

The effect of an employee’s professional identification on organizational climate

The aim of this article was to examine how the strength of an employee’s identification with work-related groups (profession, organization, work team) and leader group prototypicality depends on different aspects of organizational climate in context of traditional organizations, such as number of employees, workplace (high-comfort and lowcomfort workplace) and organization success: high-status and low-status organizations. The results suggest that an employee’s identification with organization depends on two quadrants of organizational climate: open systems and rational goal. Conversely, an employee’s professional identification associated with internal processes of organizational climate, in particular, formalization and tradition. Leader group prototypicality was positively correlated with such quadrants of organizational climate as human relations that include organizational processes relating to employee’s autonomy, integration, involvement, supervisory support, training and welfare. The significant differences of the strength of an employee’s identification with work-related groups (profession, organization, work team) between groups with different organization success support social attraction hypothesis (social identity theory) that individuals identify with groups that are prestigious or distinctive and enhance self-esteem. Future research could build on these results by testing theoretical mechanisms and empirical evidence that may explain how various aspects of the organizational climate affect the organizational identity and leader group prototypicality.

Key words: organizational climate, identification with work-related groups (profession, organization, work team), leader group prototypicality, organization success.

Psychopathic traits as a risk factor in developmental process of behaviour disorders in children and adolescents

During the last two decades in the professional literature there has been increasing interest in research on «psychopathic traits» in children and adolescents and their association with other kinds of behavioural disorders, for example, aggression and antisocial behaviour. What is more, a growing number of mental health professionals believe that an early confirmation of the presence or absence of these features may help to identify unique etiological factors involved in the development of antisocial behaviour. This belief is based on a notion that the psychopathic traits are associated with the development and persistence of conduct disorders and antisocial behaviour both in adolescents and adults. Adult psychopaths commit a disproportionate amount of violent crime and are at a heightened risk for recidivism. The research suggests that youth with psychopathic traits present with deficits similar to their adult counterparts on measures of passive avoidance learning and emotional processing. There is also evidence to suggest that these youth engage in differential forms of aggression. In addition, research suggests that adult psychopathy develops early in life. In this context, an early diagnosis may be very useful in predicting these kinds of problems in later life. The purpose of this paper was to evaluate the cognitive, emotional and behavioural characteristics in children and youth with psychopathic traits and their relationship with aggressive behaviour and conduct disorders. The special emphasis was on the correlation between basic dimensions of psychopathic traits in children (e.g. the callous-unemotional traits, impulsivity, and narcissism) and two forms of aggression, i.e. reactive and proactive aggression. The findings of recent research provide support for the developmental theory of psychopathy and help to explain the potential role of psychopathic traits in development of aggressive behaviours. Recommendations for future research and the clinical implications of these findings are also discussed.

Key words: psychopathic traits, children, adolescents, emotional processing, cognitive processing, antisocial behaviour, reactive aggression, proactive aggression.

The development of a child’s emotional sphere and volitional qualities as a condition of psychological readiness to school

Bringing a child to school is the turning point of life, it is a meeting with the new world – mysterious, desirable and at the same time very difficult. A child of elementary school firstly becomes a subject of social activity when it is necessary not only to carry out what I want and what you need, as it is required by adult teachers. Most children want to go to school and this is very important because the need for «open» semantic scope of the individual make it flexible and responsive to new influences and changes. However, in psychology there is a known fact that the first desire is very superficial and unfounded: a child wants to have a new social role of «student», which draws its external attributes. But it turns out very quickly that it is not like that. And then when a child faces with these problems of school life he begins to experience psychological discomfort to the scene and desperately important factor for school readiness. This important level of psychological structures, which were combined with the motivation and form, has been called child’s readiness for school in psychology. It is established that child’s readiness to school is a multicomponent formation, which requires complex psychological research. The structure of psychological readiness is established to provide the following components: emotionalvolitional , motivational and mental readiness. The school focuses on the development of students’ cognitive activity, creativity, willingness and ability to work independently, to produce new knowledge, it is impossible to master the system knowledge required for a modern man.

Theoretical analysis of the young personality’s spiritual self-consciousness development mechanisms

According to the results of the theoretical analysis, we identified development mechanisms of spiritual self-consciousness. Since the spiritual self-consciousness has been a complex systematic and structural formation of the psyche, the mechanisms of its development, in our opinion, are beyond the scope of classical self-consciousness mechanisms and include broader functional procession of psychical formations. Mechanisms of spiritual self-consciousness create content deployment of other mechanisms; determine the character of teaching and educational influences that are designed to achieve social, psychological and educational purposes and processes of self-development. Mechanisms of the basic components of youth’s spiritual self-consciousness include dynamic conversion process of self-awareness from self-centeredness to decent ration from self-knowledge to self-understanding (basic dynamics of cognitive component), self-conscious expressions of empathic from empathy to compassion, from self-acceptance to self-treatment (basic for the development of emotional and sensory components), from identification through self-identification and obtaining feedback to self-actualization and self-realization (determining the dynamics of behavioral activity component) reflexive orientation to self-control, self-management, conscious volitional efforts and conscience (basic for the development of the motivational and volitional component). Transcendence mechanism potentially sets the direction of obtaining the transpersonal experiences, setting the stage for the perspective transition of the individual to the subject-transcendent development level. Of course, not everything reaches that level, but we believe that everyone has the chance to reach it, including through appropriate organization of the formal education system and religious education.

Key words: self-consciousness, development mechanisms of spiritual self-consciousness, young age, self-understanding, self-attitude, selfidentification, self-realization, self-control, self-management, conscience, transcendence.
