Abstract: in the article the author considers the age-psychological content of adolescence, some sociocultural characteristics, as well as the formation of the personality of adolescents through the formation of a key quality of personality – subjectivity. Subjectivity is represented by the concept of an “active life position” and is considered as an educational component necessary for development and study in the conditions of various educational institutions. A conclusion is drawn that the phenomenon of “subject personality” is insufficiently studied. Based on the available materials, one can say that it is necessary to create conditions for the development of this component in connection with the accelerated pace of society’s change, the requirements for the level of formation and functioning of the person’s personality.
