Despite a great interest of modern psychologists and sociologists to the problem of identity there is still no consistent approach to definition, structure, mechanisms of development and functioning of identity. Possibilities of applying the identity model proposed within psychology of corporeity to interpretation of different forms of identity and understanding identification mechanisms are discussed. Senses of management / authorship and affiliation are considered as a universal phenomenological basis of identity experience.

Keywords: identity, identity development mechanisms, identity disorders, psychology of corporeality
