Summary/Abstract: This report discusses theoretical statements concerning the structure and content of the self-concept, as well as its regulatory functions on behavior. The results of the research of 121 imprisoned robbers are presented. They were tested with the " Twenty Statement Test", which was processed through content analysis. Thus, the obtained data are coded into several categories, which are subjected to statistical analysis. Descriptive statistics, T-test for independent samples and correlation analysis were used. The results show a statistically significant relationship between negative self-descriptions and identification with the role of the offender and a significant relationship between criminal identification and social roles which the perpetrators of robbery are identified. These results are indicative of the relationship between negative self-perception and criminal identification. The results are viewed through the prism of an identity-based motivation mode
