Features of pupils’ and students’ perception of the future profession image as a part of social reality 1185
We discuss the question of the relationship of man’s place in the social system and his perception of social reality. Awareness of the place in the system of social relations implies acceptance of its norms and values, which provides a systematic perception of social reality and the ability to plan the future. If the inclusion into the system of social relations is limited, this leads to difficulty of the world systematization and future plans making. We present the study of the perceptual image of the future profession as part of the social reality of the students and schoolchildren. Both the first and second are on pre-working stage of socialization, but with similar nature of the interaction with the social reality, students and schoolchildren have different status, and therefore different positions in the system of social relations. We found that students are increasingly incorporated into the social system, and it affects their positive perception of social reality.
