The authors of this article present results of their research that was aimed at analyzing personal aspirations of different kinds of awareness in relation to kinds of life strategies used by young people. Personal aspiration is defined as a set of one's goals and motivation to achieve a personally acceptable target in certain life spheres that are important for an individual, or life in general. The authors of the article describe kinds of personal aspirations (global and partial). Life strategy is defined as a multi-component personality complex, personal style of life that helps an individual to express his or her individuality in certain living conditions. Depending on the criterion of a dominating personal life motive and preferred way of life management, the authors describe kinds of life strategies used by young people. Using the Locus of Control Inventory (developed by Julian Rotter and adapted by E. Ksenofontova) as well as the inventories developed by the authors (S. Janerian, A. Kim) themselves, in particular, the life strategy and motivation inventory, questionnaire and drawing test to analyze personal aspirations, the authors have discovered that global and emotionally important kinds of aspirations prevail in each life strategy while partial aspirations prevail in a group of respondents with different life strategies. Respondents with internal and external vital strategies demonstrate similar kinds of aspirations but different level of awareness of these aspirations. Respondents with internal and external sociolitary strategies have different kinds, contents and awareness of aspirations. Respondents with internal and external egometary strategies have a high level of awareness of their personal dispositional aspirations, each of these aspiration having its own variable individual content.
