Social goals and peer relationships in early adolescence.

Buts sociaux et relations entre pairs au début de l'adolescence

Abstract

The study was aimed to identify the main social goals of adolescents in peer interactions, the sex differences of these goals, and their relationships with sociometric variables: popularity and reputation among peers. 335 early adolescents filled out a questionnaire measuring their social goals, popularity and reputation. Relying on an exploratory factor analysis, three social goals scales were constructed: agency, communion, and betrayal. Agency and betrayal were higher for boys, communion was higher for girls. Popularity, aggressive reputation and isolated reputation varied according to the level of these social goals.
