The article is dedicated to the study of professionally relevant personality traits, abilities and orientations of the officials of correctional facilities, holding senior positions in comparison to those of their subordinates. The traits are an integral part of the psychological and educational component of their professional competence. They reflect the most general, invariant psychological characteristics which ensure the success in their professional performance irregardless of their function or position. The hypothesis was that officials holding senior positions possess the professionally relevant traits to a greater degree, than their subordinates do. The processing of the obtained data demonstrated that senior officers surpass their subordinates in a number of professionally relevant traits (communicative, intellectual, emotional and volitional qualities). This qualities can be viewed as the psychological foundation for the formation of the subject position in professional development. The results are integrated into prospective studies of the factors and conditions for professional and personal development of penitentiary personnel. They are also used in designing programs for fostering their professional competence.

Keywords: professionally relevant traits, professional competence, makeup of one's professional competence, subject position, professional activities, correctional facilities personnel

Column: Psychology of Professional Activity
