The basic purpose of this study was to define qualities of self-knowledge in the transitional period between late adolescence and early adulthood. For that reason there has been constructed "The self-knowledge questionnaire". That tool has been created in a way enabling in the future research to compare the youth developing properly and youth with light mental retardation. The research was based on the assumption that cognitive definition and judgment oneself are made in the context of judgment of other people. The results indicate that most people reaching adult age do not notice the features that differ them at the essential level from other people of the same age level. Relatively high self-judgment may be considered to be a characteristic trait of the presented group. The results suggest that the process of getting out of the identity crisis being characteristic for adolescence is accompanied with high optimism and high self-judgment. That article presents the first step of the more complex research project concerning the self-structure of adolescents with the light mental retardation.
