The article reveals the problem of theoretical understanding and practical investigation of the relationship between the concepts of consciousness, selfconsciousness, ‘I-concepts’, ‘I-image’. The criteria for the correlation of the concepts of consciousness, self-consciousness, ‘I-concepts’, ‘the I-image’ have been developed. The systematization of the conceptual apparatus, expressed in the clarification of the essence of the phenomena of consciousness, self-consciousness, the ‘I-concept’, the ‘I-image’ as a special form of the processes of isolation and identification of the individual, is made. Ontological and epistemological aspects of the content of concepts of consciousness, self-consciousness, ‘I-conception’, ‘I-image’ are singled
out. The results of the pilot study testify to the presence of a broad scientific interest in the subject of consciousness, self-consciousness, the ‘I-concept’, the ‘I-image’ of the individual. The dynamics of the scientific interest in the phenomenon of consciousness, self-consciousness, the ‘I-concept’, the ‘I-image’ of the personality is shown. Investigating the dynamics of the study of the problem of consciousness and self consciousness, the ‘I-concept’, the ‘I-image’ in psychology in the twenty-first century, the author developed categories: the content and structure of the ‘I—concept’ (we-concept) of the individual; self-consciousness of the person; structure of the self-consciousness component of the individual (self-assessment, self-knowledge, self-perception, meanings, self-realization, etc.); self-consciousness as a factor of professional self-determination of a person; the content and structure of the personality of the ‘I-image’ of the individual; ecological self-consciousness of the individual; and the content of the personality consciousness.
