Summary: The aim of the project is to evaluate, contrast and compare behavior prediction models based on the individual-psychological characteristics. The application of the basic findings in different areas of socially relevant behavior is proposed. The standardized procedures and instruments for measurement of manifest and intentional behavior changes are developed in order to evaluate the programs aimed at strengthening the desirable and eliminating the undesirable behavioral patterns in various areas of everyday life (health related behavior, AIDS, delinquency, parental behavior, displacement, etc.).

Keywords: attitude, moral development, behaviour prediction, psychological models, AIDS, attitude-behavior relation, self-monitoring, attribution, delinquency, ethnical stereotypes, SYMLOG, environmental psychology, displacement

Research goals: The aim of this project is to determine areas of validity for the proposed models of the personal characteristics-behavior relations. It has been done for several personal and situational variables. The latter refers to some socially relevant attitude/behavior objects, like AIDS, prosocial behavior, delinquency, etc. The findings enable better understanding of the processes that relate personal characteristics to the manifest behavior. That leads to more reliable behavior prediction on the basis of fundamental psychological constructs. Some procedures and measuring instruments are already developed, but their improvement as well as the development of the new ones is still in process. The application of these findings is expected in the sphere of extremly relevant aspects of social behavior where strengthening of desirable as well as elimination of undiserable behavior patterns is required.
