Background. The study of the value-meaning aspect of notions of professional responsibility is due to their potential impact on the efficiency of work and on psychological well-being of a specialist. The analysis of literary sources showed insufficient development of the emotional component of the studied phenomenon.

Objectives. The article focuses on carrying out a structural and informative analysis of the views of Internet users on professional responsibility as well as on selecting value-meaning factors from the general context of representations.

Study Participants. Users of the social network VKontakte and specialized Internet forums participated in the study. The number of author’s texts analysed was 1010. Each participant submitted one communication, i.e. the number of participants corresponds to the number of texts and amounts to 1,010 people. The total number of messages included 800 texts from the social network and 210 texts from the Internet forums.

Methods. The study of ordinary representations of Internet users about professional responsibility is conducted with the help of statistical analysis of word occurrence frequency (PyMorphy2). Classification of the analyzed units (nouns, verbs, adjectives) is made on the basis of statistical processing and expert evaluation, structural elements of the phenomenon of “professional responsibility” and its value-meaning characteristics are shown. The analysis of contingency on the basis of testing with corpus of Russian language dataset RuTweetCorp, based on Bernoulli distribution, neuronetwork model of analysis of emotional background of messages (FastText), neuronetwork model Dostoevsky and dataset RuSentiment.

Results. The conducted analysis allowed to present the structure of “professional responsibility”, to reveal cognitive, emotional, and behavioral components. The study identified a fourth meta-structural component, never previously identified by other authors, which is related to the “God” construct. The value-meaning patterns of professional responsibility have been identified and described. The analysis of the emotional background of the messages made it possible to highlight the trend towards negative assessments of the phenomenon of “professional responsibility” at the current stage of society development.

Conclusions.The approach proposed in the study allows to reveal the psychological essence of professional responsibility, to highlight the importance of the emotional component in the strategies of acceptance/avoidance of responsibility. The equation of professional responsibility with personal responsibility of a specialist has been revealed, while the notions of national, social, and corporate responsibility are manifested insignificantly. The study of professional responsibility through the value-meaning aspect can become the basis for analysis of social behavior in a person as a whole in the future.
