Abstract
The article highlights the results of a comprehensive study of collective feelings in relation to significant social phenomena among students resident in the district center in comparison with the capital’s students. The sample was 127 people (67 people — residents of the regional center and 60 people Muscovites). A combination of quantitative and qualitative-quantitative methods was used: interview, questionnaire, tests, unfinished sentences and focus groups. The results show that the complexes of prevailing feelings in both groups differ — in the group of residents of the district center there is a frightened-passive coloring of feelings, while in the group of metropolitan students there is an irritated-active coloring. Positive feelings among representatives of both groups relate primarily to entertainment and leisure, technological innovations in the field of communication, performing a compensatory function in stabilizing the emotional state. Strategies for mental coping with social problems in the two groups were similar: “flight-avoidance” (31%) and “negatively-helpless” reaction (20%). Strategies for finding social support, taking responsibility, planning a solution to the problem, etc. productive strategies are poorly expressed. in comparison with the capital’s students.
