Abstract

The article presents the research data of the professional self-realization in the internal affairs officers of the Russian Federation. Also the study provided the data of a survey carried out among some internal affairs officers from the subdivisions of Moscow Head Office of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs. The respondents specified the motives and the work context that led them to resignation from service. The study shows how the notion of self-realization is defined in the international and in Russian Psychology. The work also contains the findings of average values of structural components of personal self-realization and the factor analysis of the data obtained. 190 officers (non-commissioned and commissioned officers with 2-15 years of service) from the structural subdivisions of the Moscow Head Office of the Ministry have been examined. Several conclusions can be drawn from the results of the examination. Firstly, the examined officers of this group mostly have not only a good idea of their ambitions, but they also have the ability to fulfill them. The officers are efficient and at the same time optimistic, they can redistribute their resources. They are distinguished by the yearning for their personal growth, professional excellence and social recognition. Secondly, the respondents' motivational sphere has certain contradictory elements. On the one hand, they have their own personal motives ensuring their career advancement (financial independence, prestige and power). On the other hand, they accept the socially upheld motives (to make a significant contribution to their collective accomplishment, to improve relationships among their colleagues etc.). At the same time, the socially upheld motives are considerably more prevalent (at a fairly high level of statistical significance p≤0.0002).
