Abstract

The article is devoted to the problem of outsidership in groups of younger and older adolescents. We assumed that there are personal qualities that distinguish outsiders from other students, which allows u s t o s peak o f o utsidership a s a s eparate g roup a nd p ersonal phenomenon. The study involved 246 students of Moscow schools of younger and older adolescents, 60 of whom took an outsider position in the group. To test the hypothesis were used: a personal questionnaire for adolescents HSPQ (R. Cattell), questionnaire Emin to determine the level of emotional intelligence (D.V. Lyusin), the technique of " Suggestibility " (O.E. Rybakov). To identify statistical differences, the Student's t-test and the Mann-Whitney Utest were used, p ≤ 0.05. The results of the study s howed that outsiders of adolescence are indeed characterized by a number of personal characteristics that distinguish them from their peers. Differences in personal characteristics of outsiders at different stages of adolescence have their own characteristics.
