Tolerance attitude toward a perpetrator's mistake is one of factors forming interpersonal relations. This article is concerned with the problem of some situational conditions of tolerance attitude toward a human mistake. It shows the results of an experimental investigation with an analysis of variance. It emphasizes the fact that tolerance attitude toward a human mistake depends of the observer's gender, the characteristics of the victim, the perpetrator's age and the kind of mistake consequence. Women's tolerance attitude toward somebody's mistake is higher than men's. A situation when a child is the victim of the perpetrator's action is the cause of a more intolerant observer's attitude than some situations with another kind of victim. Sometimes a child's action evokes a more tolerant attitude, but sometimes an adults mistake is more tolerable. The results of the investigation are also discussed.
