The history of psychology in its entirety is connected with the search and determination of its own scientific paradigm. Modern psychology possesses methodological means allowing efficient use of both nomothemic and ideographic approaches. However given the emergence of chaos and complexity concepts within every sphere of life, things cannot be the same as before and approaches, hitherto highly effective, leave a lot to be desired. In the recent years therefore, a new line of research, synergetic approach has been forming. Psychic new formations appearing in an individual psyche under the influence of a complicated and unstable reality, acquire multidimensionality and temporality of their functioning increases, new features appear integrating history of individual and society existence, actual state of this existence and focus on the future. A determiner of psychic reality evolution and search for new grounds are necessary for adequate description of psychic reality. One of the ways could be application of the diachronic approach in psychological research. The school environment example showed that the problem of adaptational capabilities of personality must be solved in accordance with the specific character of the preceding development of the personality. Adaptational capabilities of personality play a significant role in the process of his/her interaction with the environment, they are complex multi-dimensional systemic unity where interconnection of heterogeneous psychic phenomena and personal traits provides systemic new-formation; that is adaptational readiness of personality.
