Status position of high school and university students at different stages of their entry into the students group



The article deals with relevant for social and developmental psychology problem related to specifics of intra-group status and entry stage of developing personality into its referent students group. The study was carried out on high school and university students. The results indicate that even a subjective representation of boys and girls about their entry stage to the class or a student group significantly correlates with the integral intra-group status they have in their referent community. Those high school students who are on the adaptation stage to a real students group almost never have a high status position, and university students usually have middle status. Actively individualized high school students mainly have a high status position in the group and only occasionally – the middle status position; university students on the individualization stage usually have either low or high status. Students (both high school and university) integrated into the group can hold any - high status, middle status or low status – position.
