Appendix VI

Questionnaire Used in the Four-Country Study of Adolescent Boys and Their Mothers

STUDENT QUESTIONNAIRE

Here are some statements that people have different opinions about. There are no right or wrong answers. Just mark each one in the blanks at the left, according to the amount of your agreement or disagreement, by using the following scale:

+1 Slight support, agreement-1 Slight opposition, disagreement
+2 Moderate support, agreement-2 Moderate opposition, disagreement
+3 Strong support, agreement-3 Strong opposition, disagreement

Read each item and decide quickly how you feel about it: then fill in the number corresponding to the extent of your agreement or disagreement. Put down your first impressions.

1._____No sane, normal, decent person would ever think of hurting a close
friend.
2._____Nowadays with world conditions the way they are, the wise person
lives for today and lets tomorrow take care of itself.
3._____It is better to go without something than to ask a favor.
4._____I set difficult goals for myself which I attempt to reach.
5._____The negative opinion of others often keeps me from seeing a movie
or play I had planned to attend.
6._____Planning only makes a person unhappy since your plans hardly ever
work out anyway.
7._____There is no such thing as a really permanent friendship. Your friends
change with circumstances.
8._____If you get bad news it is better to hide what you feel and behave as
if you didn't care.
9._____There are some people like great artists and musicians who can be
forgiven for not being considerate of others, kind to the poor, etc.
10._____There is hardly anything lower than a person who does not feel a
great love, gratitude, and respect for his parents.
11._____It would irritate me very much to have a watch or clock which was
off by several minutes every day or so.
