The transformations society has faced in the transition from modernity to postmodernityhave shaken the traditional group dimensions, and thereby, personal identity itself.The stray of the sense of belonging, linked to the consideration of some cultural, linguistic,religious traditions as our own, not only prevents from understanding the world: italso hampers the possibility to internalize all those aspects of the experience of "belonging" which, when lost, become nothing more than fragments of an essentially uncertain and provisionalworld.Taking up some of the concepts of the subjectual group analysis theory of personality, thearticle proposes a reflection on why some recent anthropological changes may represent athreat in relation to the development of individual identity, with a special focus on the conceptof dis-identity. It will therefore highlight the instability of identification dynamics andthe connection of this weak spot, to the development of new forms of psychopathology.After illustrating the fragility of the internalization process of the composing elements ofindividual identity, the article associates the partial shadowing of the intersubjective dimensionwith the emergence of new psychopathological figures.
