We present the data of empirical research on the relationship of antisocial directed creativity and values. Football fans and teenagers with different levels of aggression (N=124) were involved as subjects. Used aggression questionnaire Bass-Perry, TCI-125, block of social situations, "Portrait value questionnaire-revised PVQ-R" and the Russian version of the questionnaire "The malevolent creativity behavior scale "(Hao et al.). The main hypothesis of the study, according to which the relationship of creativity and values is fundamentally different in nature in groups with different levels of agression, has been confirmed. Of particular importance is the expression of the values of the subjects of personal focus "Independence of thought", "Stimulation" and "Reputation" and reducing the value of social focus "Tradition"and" Conformism-Rules." The data on the combination of values and personal characteristics (hostility and self-orientation) as predictors of antisocial creativity and its realization in deviant behavior are analyzed. Directions of further research are offered.
