Abstract
Current paper analyzes the role of mental inequalities in the formation of social inequalities in Russian province. Mental inequalities are persistent differences in the cognitive-value patterns of individual and collective consciousness. The authors attempt to identify mental inequalities of the Russian province inhabitants, as well as the influence of certain mental features on status parameters and dispositions of the respondents. Based on the results of a sociological study, mental characteristics differentiating provincial society are revealed: life goals, subjective criteria for success in life, a planning horizon, a set of mobility and entrepreneurial activity, work motivation. The identified mental inequalities make it possible to predict further stratification of provincial communities into an active minority, increasingly losing touch with regional societies, and a conservative majority experiencing social discomfort and feeling ineffective in the habitual forms of social behavior.
