    Objectives. The aim of this study was to examine the connection between coping strategies and personality traits of novice class teachers while handling mistakes. Accordingly, the more accurate research questions concerned a) the experience of making a mistake among novice class teachers, b) the nature of the coping strategies used in mistake-handling and c) the correlation between chosen coping strategies and the personality traits of novice class teachers. Earlier research has shown the connection between coping strategies and personality. Methods. The subjects of this study were four novice class teachers who had graduated from the faculty of education within two years. The material of this research was collected through a theme interview and a personality trait inquiry. The material was then analyzed with the help of theory-based content analysis and comparison analysis. Results and conclusions. The results indicated that social coping strategies were popular among the novice class teachers. All of the subjects seemed to rely on social support while coping with errors. These social coping strategies were seen crucial to the occupational wellbeing. Therefore, the accessibility of social coping strategies must be enhanced in the work communities in the future.
