The results of empirical studies of relationship between information preferences and personality traits in young people aged 18–20 (N = 109) are presented. It is shown that subjective characteristics prevail in modern students’ descriptions of “self”, “we” and “they”. Open, sociable students are more inclined to trust the opinion of friends/relatives and the media, and their “self”, “we” and “they” concept are highly differentiated. Independent, “fenced off”, introvert students are critical to other people opinion, less susceptible to socializing influence, and their images of themselves, relevant groups and other communities are less differentiated.

Keywords: information socialization, personality traits
