Violent antisocial behavior in adolescent boys will be associated with high competition, low cooperation peer activities and inculcation of certain personality traits (142).


Significant relationships are found with high peer competition (r = 0.47), high peer cooperation (r = -0.41), and inculcation of conformity (r = -0.33), trust (r = -0.59), and competitiveness (r = 0.36).
