Introduction. Children's and youth's interests are of great importance in the view of pedagogical science. It is an element of a human's personality which makes people take action and for endeavours to achieve particular aims. Material and methods. The method applied in the research was the diagnostic survey based on a questionnaire. The questionnaire used in the research was the Springer's Interests Questionnaire adopted by Cekiera and an open question like ‘What are your interests?’. The survey was conducted in Academic Year 2008/2009 among 667 first-year physical education students of the first level of full-time studies in eight academies in Poland. Results. The conducted survey indicates that, among all the first-year physical education students' interests, there is a clear tendency for students to be interested in sport and tourism. The majority of respondents tends to be interested only in sport and tourism, they are defined as one-track mind students, and this can be proven through their deep and extensive knowledge in these subjects. The factors that significantly influence and differentiate the statistics of the survey were: sex, social background and place of residence. However, the type of school finished does not have an impact on the result of the survey since there is no connection between the finished school and interests. Conclusion. Owing to the fact that the majority of respondents definitely show a one-track mind interest in sport-tourism and care-education, it can be suggested that they tend to have the right qualities to be teachers of physical education.
