The results of a cross-cultural study of volitional regulation in Komi-Zyryans and Russians are presented. Two samples of 100 representatives of Komi (Syktyvkar) and 100 representatives of Russian (Moscow) was compared. The samples were balanced by gender, age and other socio-demographic characteristics. To diagnose the individual characteristics of volitional regulation of the respondents, the following methods were used: “Action-control scale” by Yu. Kuhl, “Questionnaire for revealing the expression of self-control in the emotional sphere, activity and behavior”, self-evaluation of volitional qualities. The significant differences between Komi-Zyryans and Russians in behavioral (p=0,05) and social self-control (p=0,01), self-appraisals of volitional qualities: disciplined (p=0,01), persistent (p=0,01), strong-willed (p=0,05), initiative (p=0,05), restrained (p=0,05), patient (p=0,01), stubborn (p=0,01), calm (p=0,01), attentive (p=0,01) were showed. The obtained results confirm the hypothesis about the presence of cross-cultural differences in the parameters of volitional regulation and confirm the ideas of the volition as a higher mental function.
