The data used in this paper were collected for the first time in Russia within the mass sociological interrogation and psychological testing simultaneously spent (about 600 people). This allowed us to test at the micro-level if there are the interrelation between psychological components of the person and his behavior in economic sphere. On the basis of the big number of psychological variables eight integrated factors, characterizing expressiveness of different psychological components of the human capital have been constructed. At individual level significant interrelations of these factors with the major demographic, social and economic indexes, such, as a sex, age, formation, religiousness, a labor experience, the birthplace, smoking, the use of alcohol, a sport training, a self-estimation of the social status and a family financial position have been found out. Econometric estimations has shown that some psychological variables (reliability of memory and mistrust to a society, personal adaptable potential and situational uneasiness) have the contribution to incomes comparable with such of the education.
