2020. Vol. 17. No. 1. P. 60–72 [issue contents]
Malevolent creativity (MC) is manifested in the implementation of one’s own or somebody else’s original ideas that harm other people. Analysis of previous studies shows that there are age and gender specifics. We present the results of a study of MC predictors, taking into account age and gender of the respondents. The sample (N = 293): men (N = 192); cadets (N = 97), cadets of high school (N = 150) and students of high school (N=46, women). A battery of questionnaires was used to measure aggression, MAK-IV, emotional intelligence, personality traits of the Big Five, behavioral characteristics of MC. Qualitative gender characteristics of MC predictors were revealed: in men, this is hostility, and in women, aggression. According to the results of the regression analysis, the specificity of adolescent MC is that negative predictors include Consciousness and Agreeableness traits associated with deviant behavior, but not in adult respondents. The results obtained can be used to develop programs for the prevention of deviant behavior in adolescents.
