Personal identity remains the dialectics of difference and identity since identification and differentiation are two poles of its construction process. Children find the answer to the question who they are by searching for their identity with reference to the group where they function as well as by experiencing the unity of their body and soul. An element of personal identity is gender identity, proper development of which – together with physiological course of psychosexual development – offers a possibility of undisturbed functioning of a child in adult life.
