Summary/Abstract: The article deals with the personal qualities of the tenth grade pupils which are perceived as the disturbances and the stimulus of educational interaction by physical education teachers in physical education classes. Research results have shown that all physical education teachers participating in the study (both men and women) are positive about three personal qualities of pupils: curiosity, self-confidence and initiative. According to the respondents, those qualities mentioned above help develop pedagogical interaction in physical education activities. Physical education teachers (women) distinguish the following less favorable personal qualities of pupils as anger, hypocrisy, revengefulness and avoidance of responsibility, whereas men more often indicate only one quality interfering with pedagogical interaction – poor physical health. In general, all physical education teachers agree about such pupils’ qualities as indifference and laziness as the sources of disturbances in the educational interaction. Besides, poor teaching / learning environment in physical education classes is one of the main reasons of unconstructive pedagogical interaction according to the respondents.
