Hearing impairment is the factor influencing individual experience and development. However, as it influences the identity development, it might also impact the temporal processes. The article analyses the three levels of psychological time in the context of contemporary research. The results are discussed in the frame of particularly crucial factors such as communication, language and culture. Temporal perspective is described in the context of world representation understood as a system of knowledge comprising an individual’s beliefs. This system, which plays a regulative role in making choices, building attitudes towards the real world and solving problems, develops as the individual gains experience. However, hearing-impaired adolescents concentrate on the present events more than their hearing peers.
