The article considers the concept of the personality's goal orientation through a certain hierarchy of human goals and motivational content that reflects a personal position. The influence of this position on the achievement of long-term goals is shown mainly in future time situations. The components and forms of expression of the personality's goal orientation are defined. Four positions are singled out: rationalistic, altruistic, rational and egocentric. The terminological apparatus for qualitative comprehension of the investigated concept is made. A psychological construct of the personality's target orientation has been developed in the article.
