Theoretical aspects of professional “self-image” of a person

1894

Abstract

The paper analyzes the features of professional “self-image” of a person as a cognitive component of professional self-concept in the structure of the professional identity of an individual as a conscious indicator of belonging to a specific profession, which is determined by personally significant professional activity and is expressed through professional distinguishing signs. An important aspect when considering the substantial characteristics of a professional “self-image” is the relation of the categories of “Self” and professional self-consciousness as a multi-level representations of a man about himself as a professional in the unity of three components: cognitive, affective and behavioral. We reveal the influence of professional standard content for the content of professional “self-image” and rise of their content association in the process of professional development and professional maturity of a subject. We present the author’s position on defining a vector of personal development in a professional environment as a result of harmonization of professional positions of “real self” and “ideal self”. Structurally professional “self-image” of a person is revealed through four interrelated components: socio-perceptual, cognitive, emotional and evaluative, and behavioral.
