The aim was to develop a Scale of self-assessment of social behavior of adolescents and to verify its psychometric characteristics, and we will attempt to replicate the scale structure in the main research. The semantic differential method was used with respect to postmodernist concept of reflexive projection of personality. In the pilot study with 300 students in vocational schools (58% male; 15-19 years, M = 16.06, SD = 0.96) a total of 64 semantic differential method pairs of adjectives were established, grounded in the implicit theories of personality. The factor structure was verified with exploratory factor analysis, and pairs of adjectives were selected to formulate subscales of satisfactory psychometric properties: Conventionality, Self-promotion and Sociability. The structure of the proposed scale was replicated in the main study conducted on 1125 students of vocational schools (63% male; 15-18 years, M = 16.46, SD = 1.01). There were relatively high average values found in all subscales. The intercorrelations among the subscales were high and positive, indicating a connection between the observed self-assessment. It was determined that female adolescents have a significantly higher score on the Conventionality and Sociability than male adolescents. The analysis of differences by age group indicated that seventeen-year-oldn participants had the lowest average scores on all three subscales. The obtained dimensions of adolescent self-assessment were discussed, and the possibilities of contribution of these results in advisory work with adolescents in vocational schools were implied.
