In this article, we analyze the results of a study of intercultural interaction of college students. The study tested the hypothesis that students oriented to a subculture and to the dominant culture, differ in their manifestations of authenticity, destructive communicative attitudes and forms of overcoming behavior in conflict situations. The study involved 134 college students, the average age is 18.5 years. According to the survey, they were divided into groups of students, focused on the subculture of gamers and the dominant culture. On the basis of a set of diagnostic techniques and factor analysis, we revealed the specifics of intercultural interaction of students, depending on the orientation on the subculture of gamers or on the dominant culture.
