Personality Development: Reset In The Context Of Digital Reality


The paper analyzes personality development in the context of digital reality. It is emphasized that personal spiritual domain is being transformed; among threats to spiritual security there are several factors: globalization trends in culture, religious ecumenism, transnational confessions previously absent from the Russian society, bringing changes to personal identity. New features of communicative interactions are noted between elder and younger generations, manifesting in psychological communication barriers due to opposing attitudes to virtual reality and worldview. An important role of teachers is stated for every level of education, as they serve as tutors and navigators in the vast sea of information. A significant role of religion is identified in formation of the cultural component of personal communicative behavior in the context of influence from digital technologies. Formative and developmental features are analyzed for communicative behavioral models of non-standard situations, together with changes in personal consciousness that reset personal spiritual world and raising great concerns due to threats to spiritual security. It is emphasized that there is a need to develop along with the fast-changing world, taking into account both negative and positive influences of digital technologies onto intellectual, spiritual, emotional, volitional and behavioral domains of a person. A conclusion has been drawn that immersion into digital environment facilitates loss of personal individuality, changes in behavioral style following certain algorithms, estrangement of mental world, loss of freedom of choice.
