The article presents the results of a comparative analysis of self-fulfillment strategies in ambitious and unambitious young people. Ambition is understood by us as the desire of a person to become a significant person and to be recognized by other people for their achievements. Self- fulfillment is a person’s empowerment of himself, his personality, his value, this desire for high appreciation and self-esteem, and the behavior corresponding to this desire. Self- fulfillment can be implemented in one of three strategies – constructive, aggressive, or in the rejection of self- fulfillment. We assumed that there would be differences in the representation of self-fulfillment on strategies among ambitious and unambitious young people. The study involved 94 young people aged 18-22 years. The majority of young people consider themselves ambitious or rather ambitious people (70.21%). Less than a third of young people consider themselves to be unambitious or rather unambitious people (29.79%). In ambitious young people, two strategies of self- fulfillment were identified – constructive self-affirmation (60.60%) and rejection of self-affirmation (39.39%). Three strategies were identified among ambitious young people – refusal of self- fulfillment (42.86%), constructive self- fulfillment (42.86%) and aggressive self- fulfillment (14.28%). There were no statistically significant differences in the representation of constructive self- fulfillment and rejection of self- fulfillment in ambitious and unambitious young people. The only difference is that aggressive self- fulfillment is presented unambitious in unholy young people and is not present in ambitious young people.
