Annotation: In the course of formation, a society can regress to earlier stages of its development. Even solved problems can become topical again. In a crisis situation, there is a danger of an increase in the number of people confirmed by the anti-democratic ideology (fascism). That is why it is important to investigate the structure of the authoritarian personality and what contributes to its development. Empathy as a way of knowing other people is considered the best means of humanizing the individual and forming understanding. When considering the relationship, this hypothesis was refuted. The interaction of vulnerability to anti-democratic ideology and empathy is ambiguous. In this study, it was found that the channels of empathy make a destructive contribution to the structure of the personality. Positive relationships between the components of fascisation and the parameters of empathy aimed at collecting information from the external environment are established. In line with the systematic and acmeological approaches, it was revealed that the irrational channels of empathy: intuitive and emotional-contribute to the growth of Superstition and stereotypy, the Complex of Power and Projectivity. Basic in the interrelated components of fascisation and empathy channels is the irrationality and complexity of explication (deployment), explanation, verification of information. Thus, the heterogeneous and destabilising contribution of empathy to the structure of personality is shown.
Keywords: components of fascism, authoritarian personality, empathy channels, students
