teenagers, terminal and instrumental values, body weight


Differentiated assessment of the judgments of adolescent girls with different body weights (normal and insufficient) made it possible to reveal a hierarchy of their value orientations and conditionally distinguish two main groups among them: with a high and a low ranking place. As a result of the study, reliable differences in terminal and instrumental values were established between teenage girls with different body weights. In the group of underweight girls, the following value orientations with a higher rating (in order of decreasing importance) prevailed: intolerance to own and others' shortcomings, cheerfulness, diligence, social recognition, happy family life, and equality.
