Tolerance Development in Ontogenesis of a Personality

Paygunova Yulia V., Volga State Academy of Physical Culture, Sports and Tourism

The article is about the problem concerning tolerance development of a personality in ontogenesis. It presents the analysis data of psychological conceptions (conception of stage brain building, psychoanalytical conception of culture, socio-analytical theory) that form the basis for modern methodology in researching tolerance development of a personality and give an opportunity to confirm that individual tolerance development repeats the stages of its general social and historical development. The author presents his scheme of ontogenetic stages of personality development and levels of tolerance development the basis for which is the principle of phylogenesis and ontogenesis unity formulated by E. Haeckel. The article views the main stages of personality tolerance formation: latent; empirical; collectivist or conformal; maturating or crisis, egocentric; mature. It describes the main psychological barriers of tolerance formation at the stages of childhood and youth: non-formedness of cognitive sphere; weak ability to reflection; high suggestibility, behavioral conformism; low suggestibility, scepsis, and protest behavior. The author comes to the conclusion that tolerance as the feature of a personality is transformed, evolving in the process of life development, developing from its primitive up to more complex forms.
