Abstract
The article actualizes the problem of the formation of prosocial behavior in the younger generation as an important factor of socialization. It is shown that in modern conditions there was a transformation of value orientations and self-concept with the establishment of individualism and egocentrism, once alien to Russian society. The article presents the results of a pilot study of indicators of youth socialization: prosociality (altruism) and self-centeredness, aggressiveness, suggestibility and conformism. The study involved university students. The study revealed a high level of egocentrism and a low level of altruism among most students, as well as a high level of conformism. In the student environment, there is a tendency to conventional identity - conventional norms (norm-agreements, norm-rules). These trends can lead to serious dysfunctional consequences for the individual and society as a whole.
