Education for social work requires students to perform many tasks, ensuring interdisciplinary preparation for this profession. The usefulness of social design and its didactic value should be seen in this context. Didactic projects, thanks to multi-tasking, stimulate students' activity, teach responsibility, moreover, they enable combining knowledge with action, and develop reflectiveness. The implementation of social projects requires cooperation of students in project teams. However, the efficiency of team cooperation is determined by the proper configuration of the individual characteristics of team members, in accordance with the assumptions of M. Mazur's (1999) psychocybernetic theory of character. In terms of this theory, a man with a specific dynamism of character has a better chance of effective cooperation when he cooperates with people of the same dynamism. These chances are greater because allied people have a greater sum of their powers (synergy effect), it is easier for them to take challenges together. The aim of that paper is to present the results of the conducted diagnostic research - questionnaire research, in the field of the character of students in psychocybernetic terms. In total, 19 students, who were registered for the implementation of didactic social projects, took part in the study. Based on the estimations of character parameters, the most favorable configuration of members of 3-person project teams was indicated. This procedure is part of the knowledge management process - as improving the education process in the field of dynamic, time-limited, temporary and team-implemented didactic projects, where the problem is sharing knowledge in order to achieve team effects (through a group), resulting in low effectiveness undertaken projects, low quality of results, etc. Research objective: researching the usefulness of knowledge in the field of individual, autonomous character traits of students for designing effective teams implementing didactic social projects.
