The paper analyzes the problem of the civil identity of personality in conditions of the intensive development of a modern system of social relations. The need for studying the formation of civil identity as a factor of the psychological security of different age groups justifies the relevance of the study. The study used an authorial model of personality civil identity. This model included these components: civil self-identification, moral attitudes, social distance, and personal agency. The sample consisted of 70 students aged 18–20 and adults aged 40–47. The author applied this model to assess the maturity of civil identity statuses – the achieved, moratorium, pseudo-identity, the forced, and the diffused. The results showed that adolescence is a period of uncertainty for the development of civil identity since infantilism contributed to this process. Pseudo-identity and a striving to distance from social problems calling for an active life stance act as dominant when lifestrategy shapes. Adults exhibit a more mature civil identity, a deeper understanding of the need for personal agency evolution. The correlation analysis has identified the linkage between the components of civil identity and statuses and indicated the necessity to harmonize personalities of both groups through self-examination, selfreflexion, and independent judgment that lead to the promotion of internal control and nationhood.
