Abstract:

The present research study was undertaken to assess the social maturity of tribal adolescents in Adilabad district. A total sample of 120 adolescents out of which 60 boys and 60 girls in the age range of 13-19 years were selected through purposive random sampling method. Ex-post factor research design was used for the study. A self-designed interview schedule was used to study the socio-demographic characteristics of the respondents. Social maturity of the respondents was assessed by using Rao’s Social Maturity Scale. The data was analysed using Frequencies, Percentages, Means, S.D’s and ‘t’-test. The results revealed that, majority of the tribal adolescents had moderate level of social maturity, very few of them had high level of social maturity and none of them had low level. Early adolescents scored high in almost all the sub components of social maturity like Work Orientation, Enlightened trust, Social Commitment, Social Tolerance, Openness to change, Interpersonal adequacy and Social adequacy except ability to take stress, which was found better among late adolescents. The study also revealed that girls scored significantly higher on the components of cooperation, openness to change and interpersonal adequacy whereas boys scored higher on the ability to take stress component of social maturity.
