Tożsamość człowieka i zaangażowanie w działalność proekologiczną
Rocznik: 2004 Tom: 10 Numer: 1
The article presents an empirical verification of the ecopsychological assumption that personal identity leads to spontaneous ecological behavior. The author has compared a group of ecological activists with a group of students who are not involved in environmental activity in descriptive and scope aspects of identity. The results of the research show differences in identity between the activists and the students. The people who are involved in ecological activity have a wider range of identity which contains various environmental objects. Besides, the activists' identity is not as conventional as the identity of other people. Self description is also more abstract in the group of ecological activists.
