DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE CONCEPT OF A LEADER AND ACTUAL LEADER TRAITS IN TEENAGE GROUPS
Psychological Institute RAE, Moscow
We studied the differences between the concepts of a leader with the qualities of the real leaders in groups of younger and older adolescents. It was shown that these differences exist, and that the choice of a leader in a group of teenagers is not associated with their idea of a perfect leader. In addition, age differences in leaders of groups of younger and older teens were demonstrated.
