Humans at their birth enter the network of social relationships. The primary relationships are a necessary presumption of good relationship in a family and later in partner-like and parent-like relationships. Children, later adolescents must create a lot of relationship to other persons, that means the relationship to significant others (partners, friends). Finally, some relations to groups should be created. Those relationships rake a significant part of self-system. These three kinds of relations are used both mutually and differently in a process of situation representation and one‘s action. And vice-versa, these relational components of selfystem are further developed in the course of the action
Our research problem is related to the presumed differences in the origin of particular types of relationships. We would like to include not only developmental difference in these relationships connected to the self-structure development, but we would like to create and verify a dynamic model. This model should allow the description and explanation of processes in interaction of three components of interpersonal self in different ages.
the solution will be focused on the experimental method with the use of free-recall, playing games, group and individual interviews
