The criterion of personal psychological qualities implies a system of future border guards officers' internal capabilities and their ability to realize them. This component includes a number of elements, such as: professional orientation; future border guard officer's understanding of the significance of communicative and discursive culture as an important factor in their future service activity; axiological attitude to formation of communicative and discursive culture. The criterion of communicative and discursive skills relates to the ability of utilizing acquired background knowledge in practice.

Their display levels are defined as high, medium and low.

Communicative and discursive culture becomes a persistent feature of a person at the high level of development, based on favorable natural potential, needs, motivation for career growth, self-development and self-improvement. Medium level is characterized by the desire to comprehend more than expressed in spoken words; clear and correct understanding of the content of communicative and discursive culture; friendly style of communication both with colleagues and people who cross the border.
