Comparative Analysis of Behavior Self-Management and Self-Regulation in Adolescents with Different Levels of Autonomy


The article presents the results of a study in the formation of the ability to self-manage and self-regulate behavior in adolescents with different levels of autonomy (N = 117, aged 13–15), performed with the use of the following psychodiagnostic instruments: AutonomyDependence Questionnaire (G. S. Prygin), Style Self-Regulation of Human Behavior (V. I. Morosanova), and Self-Management Ability (N. M. Peisakhov). The purpose of the study presented in this article is to identify differences in the ability of behavior self-management and self-regulation of adolescents with different levels of autonomy. It is presumed that the autonomy of adolescents is determined by the abilities of self-management and self-regulation of behavior that act as psychological components, which allows it to be formed through these characteristics. It was established that adolescents with a higher level of autonomy have a higher level of development of the abilities of situation analysis, predicting, goal-setting, planning, modeling, programming, thinking of criteria for quality assessment, decision-making, self-control, correction, and flexibility; and as a result, they have better abilities of self-management and regulation of their behavior as compared to adolescents with a lower level of autonomy. The obtained data helps to consider the ability of selfmanagement and self-regulation of behavior as determinants of the formation of adolescent autonomy.
