The article shows that a person’s self-reliance significantly depends on the proportions of the components of the own psychological gender. Men are more confident when they have all the components of their self-reliance (a general self-reliance, a social courage, an initiative in social contacts) describing in masculine qualities, in so-called “masculinity”, together with the total number of masculine and feminine characteristics (a total gender amount). The masculinity has also a positive impact on women in all three components of self-reliance, as well as a total gender amount impacts on a general self-reliance and an initiative in social contacts. It is also observed that women (unlike men) were very sensitive to their parents’ estimates in their childhood and this fact effects more strongly on women’s self-reliance.

Key words: self-reliance, psychological gender, social boldness, initiative in social contacts, male, female.
