Problem of elite personality in modern psychology
Dmitry Olegovich Kuleshov, the junior research associate, St. Petersburg Military Institute of National Guard Troops of the Russian Federation

The article contains the theoretical analysis and systematization of the existing philosophical, political, sociological, pedagogical, psychological approaches to elitism, elitist orientations, and an elitist personality. The author made an attempt to highlight the qualities of an elitist personality, such as spirituality, responsibility, patriotism, commitment to the organization, meaningful life orientations, creativity, and risk appetite. The named qualities are highlighted on the basis of the analysis of psychological, pedagogical and ethical-philosophical approaches and concepts. Highlighted as a result of a theoretical study of the quality of an elitist personality can be a guideline for the formation of a highly effective professional personality. These guidelines can be especially relevant for the formation and upbringing of representatives of law and order, who, by their own example, affect the worldview of a growing person.
Keywords: elite, elitism, personality, spirituality, meaning-life orientations, elite orientations.
