The article analyzes the genesis of personality based on concepts of medieval Western philosophical doctrine. Argued proved that the genesis of personality serves the fundamental problem of being individual. It was found that in the Middle Ages identity is understood as a set of specific qualities that are more or less characterize typical in it and so that each of the properties has independent significance and is not derived from the inner nature of the individual.
