ABSTRACT

This study examined the effects of adolescent biological and subjective age on their problem behavior with middle and high school students. Statistical analysis revealed male and female high school students had the highest biological age, and male middle school students had the lowest one. Also the biological age was only related with the problem behavior of male adolescents and male adolescents with high biological age engaged in higher levels of antisocial behavior and violent behavior than their lower ones. But adolescents with high subjective age engaged in higher levels of antisocial behavior, imitation of adult behavior and violent behavior regardless of sex and age. Moreover middle and high school male students and high school female students with high biological and subjective age were likely to engage in problem behavior than their cournterparts with low biological and subjective age.
