Author(s): Dr. Satnam Kaur
Conformity is the act of matching attitudes, beliefs and behavior to group norms. The present study was conducted on a sample of 150 secondary school boys and girls (75 students of class 9th and 75 students of class +1) from three schools of Amritsar city affiliated to Punjab School Education Board. Conformity Behavior Scale, Standard Progressive Matrices and Socio-Economic Status Scale was used for assessment of variables. The data analysis clearly indicates a significant difference in conformity behavior of class 9th and class +1 students i.e. conformity increases with age. Significant gender difference in conformity behaviour also found at class 9th level, but no significant gender differences in conformity behavior were found at +1 level, however boys of class +1 shown more conformity than girls. Girls of both the classes belong to higher socio economic status and are more intelligent than boys but show less conformity. Results show significant positive correlation between conformity, intelligence and socio-economic status at both the levels.
