Keltikangas-Jarvinen, Liisa; Terav, Tuuli
Journal of Social Psychology, v138 n3 p381-91 Jun 1998
Compares justifications for aggression and withdrawal in Finnish and Estonian adolescents. Evaluates responses given in a questionnaire asking participants to justify problem-solving strategies for two social problems. Concludes aggression may be perceived as more deviant in Finland. Finnish motivation for withdrawal is escaping harm, while withdrawal reflects helplessness in Estonians. (CMK)
