It is stated that there is a gap between existing sociological and psychological approaches to studying success and a lack of such studies in the framework of the social and psychological approach. It has been found out that psychological approaches are mainly focused on the research of procedural and motivational aspects of success, while sociological ones aim at studying images of success typical for mass consciousness. The author argues that the combination of those approaches could promote a design of a comprehensive study of those representations in the social and psychological dimension, which would unfold peculiarities and identify the content of the factors and the mechanisms of development of such representations in mass consciousness. The theory of social representations has been found the most appropriate one out of the available social and psychological approaches with regards to the set tasks. The use of the theory would significantly enrich the psychological science with new empirical facts or confirm those that are generally-known.
