Abstract

The article presents the results of a scientific study of attitudes towards the future in modern young men and women with low, moderate, and high degrees of social anxiety and social fears. Ninety young men and women aged 18-20 years and studying in higher educational institutions of Barnaul acted as respondents. The study used a number of psychodiagnostic technique: “Questionnaire of social anxiety and sociophobia” (O. A. Sagalakova, D. V. Truevtsev), “A acale of temporary attitudes” (J. Nyutten), factor analysis approaches and techniques. The results showed that social anxiety and social fears in adolescence act as a psychological component in the design of the image of a personal future. Depending on the severity of the studied phenomena, various attitudes towards the future are formed. A high degree of social anxiety and fear is associated with the ideals to idealize personal future, which makes the representations of boys and girls unrealistic and creates risks of not achieving their goals. For this category of boys and girls, designing the future is described by the “unassigned liability effect.” Attitudes towards the future are positive for young men and women with low and moderate levels of social anxiety and social fears. At the same time, they reflect their expectations of various events (not only positive) in the future, which makes the image of the future more realistic. They design an image of the future based on personal responsibility and pay special attention to the near stages of the future.
