Time Perspective in Personal and Professional Self-Determination in Adolescents

1487

Abstract

The article describes results obtained in a research on psychological time perception in adolescents (the research was carried out under the guidance of L.F. Obukhova). The theoretical part of the article analyses the notion of time perspective in Russian and foreign school of thought; the empirical part analyses how adolescents making choices concerning their further education (i.e. choosing their academic curriculum) perceive psychological time and their own time perspective. The adolescents participating in the research were asked to write and essay reflecting their understanding of 'The Three Wise Men' parable. The article analyses the features of time perspective in adolescents and reviews five different strategies of professional self-determination.
