Phraseological units containing national-specific phraseological images and associated with the person’s intellectual states have been singled out in the research as a result of the idioms’ comparative analysis which have been analysed within semantic groups under study. The authors came to the conclusion that the English phraseological units translated into Russian by means of the descriptive method may lose their associative image. The Russian linguistic world image is dual in associations with the word ‘mind’. In the Russian people’s consciousness human mind is associated with an intellectual ability as well with highest ethical categories. Due to this fact, reason is opposite to egoism and exaggerated sensitiveness. In the Mari paroemae, mind is also highly appreciated; man is attractive due to his mind and it helps him to become rich without great possessions; thus, an intellectual power is stronger than a physical one. According to the Mari people, only your own mind can help you when you face a challenge; you must also be independent of other people’s advice. It has been revealed that there are strong relations between mind and truth in the Mari paroemic view of the world. Numerals are used to show fluctuations in decision-making in the three languages. The concept MIND establishes and maintains order in social space, directs and improves people’s behavior and acts as a moral and intellectual sieve in the linguistic view of the world of the studied languages.
