Abstract

As there are only a few empirical investigations of female deviant behavior in this article it was examined a sample of 184 female secondary school pupils between 15 and 19 years old. This research has the aim to establish which personality characteristics feature are predictive for girls, future problematic behavior. In our research we used three tests of cognitive functioning, which measure efficiency of perceptive, serial and parallel processors and nine conative tests with the aim to estimate extraversion psychosomatic disorder, anxiousness, the most important modality of aggressiveness, dissociation and disintegration of conative functions. One variable, derived from the appraisals of 21 characteristics by which school psychologists and homeroom teachers had estimated the level of deviant behavior of girls was attached to the results of mentioned these tests. Regression analyses of that variable in the area if cognitive and conative characteristics indicated that deviant behavior of adolescent girls significantly depends on disorders of conative and insufficiency in cognitive functioning. Multiple correlation of 0.48 could be attributed to conative and cognitive constellation which was defined with lower cortical control of activity, primarily and psychopathic aggression, disorders of regulation and control of organic functions and lower efficiency of serial processing of informations. As dominant partial influence on forming regression function had lower levels of anxiety and higher level of aggression it was postulated the hypothesis that the main generator of deviant behavior of girls in these age is higher levels of primary aggressiveness.
