Title: Pedagogue students’ opinions on ideal teacher interaction Abstract: Based on Leary’s interpersonal model (Interpersonal Circumplex), Wubbels elaborated the scheme of interpersonal behaviour that was completed by questionnaires (Questionnaire on Teacher Interaction (QTI)). Our research involved 336 students of four teacher training institutions of the Carpathian Basin. In our survey, we searched for the answer to the question of what opinions students held about the ideal interpersonal behaviour. The reliability of the Hungarian version of the QTI query proved to be similar to that of the English version. According to the students, the main characteristics of the ideal interpersonal behaviour are decisive, directive, helpful and understanding; it is less characterised by doubt and emotionality. In terms of imposing and compliant manner, opinions are rather divided. It is preschool teachers and teachers of lower primary school classes who prefer cooperation with the children the most, while teachers of upper classes tend to emphasise the importance of directive behaviour.
