Abstract- Stress, conformity, groups and self-worth in high-school girls

The aim of this questionnaire-survey was to investigate the experience of stress and symptoms

of stress in high-school girls, and to examine if the experienced symptoms of stress could be

predicted by groups, self-worth and conformity. Another purpose of this study was to describe

the girls own thoughts concerning these factors. 80 girls between the ages of 15-18 years

answered the questionnaire. The results showed that stress could be predicted by the

experience of conformity, but not by the experience of belonging to a group and self-worth.

The most common symptoms of stress were tiredness, problems to concentrate and headache.

The girls reported that they thought that girls of their own age were “slutty and cocky”, and

they thought that it was important to look good, but at the same time many girls were happy

about themselves and they had realised that they had to live with who they are.
