The periods of adolescence and youth are strongly connected with the person’s search of his own uniqueness, with the formation of a system of moral and ethical beliefs, as well as the formation of new types of activities and forms of behaviour. The level of development of long-term planning skills determines the rationality, adequacy and appropriateness of behaviour. Therefore, the purpose of our study was to determine the personality traits and qualities that affect the formation of these skills in adolescents and youth. The research was conducted on the base of the Kyiv College of Light Industry and School No. 36. The total number of respondents was 211 people, 113 of whom belonged to the category "adolescents" (12-14) and 98 belonged to the category "youth" (17-19 years). The achievement of the research goals became possible due to the following tasks: 1) identification of personal qualities and manifestations of respondents; 2) studying the features of their long-term planning skills and features of constructing a picture of a probabilistic future; 3) the selection of factors influencing the specifics of the above processes; 4) comparative analysis of the results in adolescent and youth samples, finding specific and general trends. As a result of a study we investigated the personal qualities of adolescents and youth, determined the peculiarities of their setting goals and building a strategy for achieving these goals. In addition, on the basis of the received empirical data, we distinguished five types of respondents, which are characterized by specific features and methods of long-term planning. Prospects for further scientific researches we see in the improvement of this typology, as well as in the detailed study of the age dynamics of the formation of long-term planning skills.
