Abstract
This article shows actual continuity of the issue, related to studying personality’s psychological connection with the settlement area, which, according to the author’s opinion, is to the fullest extent possible reflected in the definition “regional personal identity”. The purpose of the work is searching for possibilities of formation of the “dimensional” identity in the digitalization epoch, which aren’t contrasted by a person himself or herself, but acquired by him or her in the process of interaction with the social environment. The authors have suggested the following component structure of the regional identity: cognitive-imaginative, dynamical/experienced, emotional-value-based and functional-regulatory components. The study has been executed among the students of the Sverdlovsk Regional Pedagogical College in the period from October 2018 to March 2019. The diagnostical procedure involved usage of the following methods: questionnaire survey, associative and narrative methods. The mathematical and statistical data processing expected to use Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient, G-criteria of signs, factor analysis execution. The diagnostics results have shown, that the students of the College have low level of formedness of the regional identity knowledge-imaginative component. The factor analysis of the data, obtained with the help of the “Regional symbols” associative method, has shown, that there are 5 factors in examinees’ regional identity sphere of concepts: “Natural and Historical Objects”, “Geographical Symbols”, “Climatic Conditions” and “Individually Significant Locations” and administrative and historical center of examinees’ residence region. The narratives’ content analysis and the factor analysis, executed on its basis, have shown, that the one’s understanding of being an inhabitant of a precise territory occurred in the process of overcoming difficulties, emerged on the territory of Sverdlovsk region in the process of execution of group type activities, connected to the work, study, leisure. The diagnostics data analysis allowed to reveal main directions of the forming work: completion of deficiency of the regional identity knowledge-imaginative component; forming of the respondent’s positive emotional and value-based attitude to the settlement territory, i.e. of the sphere of concepts of an inhabitant of Sverdlovsk region (regional identity emotional-value-based component); forming of the active social region-oriented position on the basis of respondents’ life experience, revealed on the basis of narrative analysis (dynamical/experienced and functional-regulatory components of the regional identity).
