Взаимосвязь самооценок агрессивного поведения московских школьников и общих размеров тела
The article presents the results of a study conducted among schoolchildren in Moscow of 10-17 years old. We were examined 491 schoolchildren (248 boys and 243 girls). The research procedure consisted of two stages: 1) filling out a demographic questionnaire and a personality questionnaire for the level of aggressive behavior of Bass-Perry, 2) anthropometric measurements of total body sizes of each respondent - body length and body mass (with further calculation of the body mass index). The theoretical hypothesis of the study was as follows: schoolchildren with higher indicators of body size (height, weight, BMI) will have higher scores for aggression, especially physical. Based on the results obtained, it can be concluded that there are significant morphophysiological predictors of physical aggression and hostility - height and weight: higher and larger boys had lower self-score for these types of aggression, while, conversely, low and thin boys were more hostile and prone to fights and quarrels. Similar trends were observed in girls on the scale of "physical aggression".
