The types of transitivity – crisis and fluid, are described, and their differences are revealed. The connection of different types of transitivity with behavior in the Internet and in a pandemic situation is revealed. Along with different types of transitivity, we can talk about different forms of the Internet – online and offline. There is a connection between crisis and on-line situations, because in both cases it is difficult to change something. From this point of view, there is a certain similarity between fluid transitivity and off-line. Changes in the criteria by which people evaluate themselves in different spaces are shown. These are likes, and re-posts (on the network), and social status or the number of citations (h-index) in real interaction, while the number of socialization groups is an important indicator both in a transitive real society and in the network. Changes in these criteria for assessing and presenting oneself affect the content of identity. The changes in identity that have taken place in recent years are revealed. The concept of participation is analyzed and strategies for building identity are studied. These strategies are considered as compensatory mechanisms in a situation of uncertainty. The result of the influence of certain aspects of the offline and online space is the choice of strategies for participatory and biographical identity, as well as the formation of an identity style associated with the peculiarities of orientation in information flows when making decisions. Empirical data are presented that prove the similarity between the psychological state and the level of anxiety in situations of crisis and fluid phases of transitivity and the first and second waves of quarantine for COVID 19. The obtained materials showed a close relationship between indicators of emotional well-being during quarantine and crises occurring in socio-cultural reality. These data show the need for more multipurpose and comprehensive training of psychologists, including the programs implemented within the framework of Liberal Arts. It is proved that the experience arising in the Internet space can help to adapt to crisis situations occurring in reality and increase the emotional well-being of people.
