In this paper two kinds of personal identity are considered – interpersonal (manifested in altruistic, egalitarian or individualistic orientations) and related to personal responsibility. 362 students at age 11–14–17 were examined with Pupil’s Behaviour Questionnaire (responsibility) and participated in the Ultimatum Game (interpersonal identity and cooperation). The results showed that interpersonal identity did not depend on age nor gender and young people manifested egalitarian orientation the most often. The congruence between behavioral and cognitive aspects was observed mostly among egalitarian oriented persons. The examined kinds of identity were related to each other. High responsibility and interpersonal identity focusing on differences between SELF and OTHERS hinder cooperation and undertaking behaviours for common good.
