The article is devoted to the technology of developing students‘ socially psychological competence of forming an image based on a conscious categorization of their personal qualities in accordance with theoretical concepts of personality in psychology. To achieve a certain level of self-actualization, purposeful practical activity, combining into a single system the inner desire of a person for the most complete identification and development of his personal capabilities with external rules for building assessments and judgments about the psychological characteristics of personal and social potential is necessary.

As part of the approbation of the program of work with students, testing using the methodology of a multilateral personality study (Cattel questionnaire), followed by rechecking the features of their answers to the questionnaire questions and their relationship with the obtained indicators was carried out. The students were faced with the task of rethinking test results by comparing them with their subjective assessments of expressing measured qualities. The students had to pay attention to the interrelation of the individual indicators of the questionnaire with each other, rising in their internal subjective space to larger, generalized personal characteristics. This work was organized through consistent psychological tasks which were performed as part of the educational process. The multidimensional and versatile nature of understanding the personal qualities inherent in particular students was provided by technologies for comparing individual data with statistical indicators of a sample of students (potential competitors in the labor market).

The materials presented in the article are the continuation of the scientific generalization of the practice of forming students competitiveness. The conducted research shows that the proposed psychological practice, built on the basis of a systemic methodological approach, is a mandatory starting point for the correct presentation and mastery of the tool for forming one’s image. Access to stable, conscious and accepted personal qualities can be considered as the basis for their development in the direction of the formation of the student’s image.
