    The study tried to determine some of the characteristics of students opting for the study of primary-level teaching and social pedagogy. We wished to examine the conformity of the characteristics of the students with the competences that are important for carrying out their future professions. The study included students of the Faculty of Education in Ljubljana who were in October 2008 enrolled in the 1st year of primary-level teaching, the 1st year of social pedagogy, and the 2nd year of primary-level teaching. In all the groups of students their character traits, attachment styles, and selfrespect were determined. The results show that all three groups of students have a relatively high degree of selfrespect and that they mostly feel safe in interpersonal relationships. The students of both courses and generations achieve average results in the personality dimensions of energy, susceptibility, conscientiousness, and emotional stability, and low results in the dimension of openness. It is important that the future experts who will be working with people possess a high level of susceptibility and openness, which was not the case in the results of the study conducted on the students of primary-level teaching and social pedagogy.
