JORQUERA GUTIERREZ, Ricardo  and  GONZALEZ RODRIGUEZ, Sergio. Sense of labor individuation: thought processes in the current sociolaboral context. Subj. procesos cogn. [online]. 2018, vol.22, n.1, pp.43-64. ISSN 1852-7310.

The sense of labor Individuation is a process of social thought that refers to the awareness that the worker has of his life work project and the feeling that he can selfdetermine it. In this process takes part the willingness to review the course of the life project at work and to use the labor autobiography (Jorquera, 2012, 2016). This article, theoretical/empirical, focuses on a conceptual development of this construct and a description of this process in a sample of Chilean workers and university students. The results show differences between the sample of workers and students. In addition, they show differences regarding the age of the subjects. The results are discussed establishing the connection between this type of social thought processes and the social structure of late modernity or second modernity (Giddens, 1995, Beck, 2002).

Keywords : Sense of labor individuation; Individualization; Modernity.
