New notion “socio-psychological capital” is proposed and operationalized. From the author’s point of view, socio-psychological capital is a certain psychological relations that are a basis for social capital forming. I. Ajzen’s theory of planned behavior is used as theoretical bases for entrepreneurial behavior study. It is shown that there is an infl uence of some components of socio-psychological capital (institutional trust, social trust and perceived social capital) on socio-cognitive phenomena underlying the intention to open person’s own business. It is stated that socio-psychological capital does not infl uence directly on intention to open one’s own business.

This article discusses and analyzes the emigration intentions of youth (N = 203) using the theory of planned behavior (Ajzen, 1982) and their relationship with socio-psychological factors. In particular, we study relationship of emigration intentions with the fairly new concept - the socio-psychological capital. Socio-psychological capital is seen as a resource of psychological attitudes, accessible to individuals belonging to a group. The structure of the socio-psychological capital are: trust, , civic identity, ethnic tolerance and perceived social capital. Case studies on the youth (18 to 24 years) showed that civic identity negatively correlated with emigration intentions. This research also provides a brief analysis of the socio-psychological capital of young people.
