We have studied personality traits of the gifted freshmen students of Department Design and National Arts of Institute of Philology and Intercultural Communication L. Tolstoy, Kazan Federal University. A total of 40 students aged 17-19 participated in the study. We used the following methods: Mini-Mult abridged version of the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory, the method of assessing the level of neuro-emotional stability, degree of integration of personal properties, the level of individual adaptation to the social environment; Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (EPI) defines extraversion (orientation of the personality to the outside world) and neuroticism (the result of an imbalance of excitation and inhibition - properties underlying temperament); Lüschercolour test measures the psycho-physiological state of a person, reveals the emotional and character logical basis of the personality and characteristics of its current state.

As a result of the EPI test, the number of extroverts in the study group is a little more than a half, and the rest of the examinees are of a mixed type and introverts. The Mini-Mult test showed a high level of the emotional stability of the students. It is associated with reduced sensitivity to the environment with a relatively low social climate sensitivity.

Correlation analysis, that allowed us to study the structure of diagnosed indices, showed that there is a legitimate interdependence of emotional state (determined by means of the Lüschercolour test) and personal qualities (defined with the help of Mini-Mult, EPI test). The results of this study will enable to complete the elective courses groups most effectively, as well as to distribute creative tasks and to do psychological adaptation training in a more goal-oriented manner.
