We study distinctive characteristics of lingvo-cultural type “teacher” in educational sphere in Russian and English lingvo-cultures. A comparative analysis of the given type on three linguistic levels is presented: conceptual, perceptual and associative fields. The choice of the lingvo-cultural type “teacher” for analysis is justified by the present global situation which highlights the importance of the profession regardless of time and place. The paper consists of the 6 main sections (abstract, introduction, methods, results, discussion, and references). The body of the research includes the experiment section. We conducted a survey: an internal (among the bachelor students of Moscow Region State University) as well as an external (administered via online among the English natives). All the respondents were offered a sample questionnaire (a set of questions and prompts to collect information about a “typical” teacher’s appearance, age, gender, family status, origin, occupation, communicative behavior, etc.) Analyzing survey experimental data we came to the conclusion that the typified personalities are socially significant and vital both in the English and Russian lingvo-cultures, have fixed conceptual characteristics, recognizable and easily identified on mental and linguistic levels. Though the existing and revealed due to the experiment differences in mentality, world-view and religion between the West and Russia find their expression in a certain aloofness and detachment of an American /British teacher / professor from social life. The overall positive attitude to the image of the teacher / professor in both lingvo-cultures is connected with a high social position of this type of personality and shows an everlasting respect to the status of the mentor in the mind of English or Russian speakers. The carried out research has shown the increasing interest in linguistic personology as a new branch of linguistics. The research can be continued and advanced from the point of view of lingvo-culturology, psychology and sociology.
