Abstract
The article presents the results of a study devoted to the problem of psychological readiness of high school students to adequate professional choice. In the course of work the structure of professional readiness was clarified, the readiness of high school students choosing a profession technicians was described, defined quality of individual students, conducive to adequate professional choice (autonomy, willingness to take decisions, ability to plan) and impede it (limited knowledge, neutral attitude to the situation of choice). The study showed that the readiness of high school students who choose the technical sphere of professional activity differs from the readiness of those high school students who choose the Humanitarian sciences, according to the parameters of "autonomy", "decision-making", "awareness", "attitude to the choice of profession". More independent, realistic and purposeful were those students who are inclined to choose the technical sphere of self-realization. But they were less informed about the world of professions in general, less emotionally involved in the selection process. As a result of the study, the directions of work on the formation of psychological readiness of high school students who preferred the technical sphere of professional activity are determined
