Education is necessary for the survival of the society and therefore must also cater to the complete development of a man and to make him a very well adjusted person in the world. Education should aim at harmonious development of an individual. A harmonious balance should be kept between feeling, knowing and doing. In this study descriptive survey method is done. Research design depends upon the types of research, Best (1983, pg25) classified all research into three types namely historical, descriptive and experimental. Descriptive research deals with the present status of phenomenon under study. It tries to answer questions through the analysis of variables relationship. The present investigation fell under the category of descriptive research. Fox (Lemans & Mehrens, 1971) categories all the research into various categories namely historical, survey, descriptive. The research design refers to the overall strategy that you choose to integrate the different components of the study in a coherent and logical way, thereby, ensuring you was effectively address the research problem, The study has been under taken to gain new insights into behavioural style, and adjustment of adolescents with regard to certain selected variables like tactics, view, morality, self-adjustment, peer group-adjustment and school-adjustment of adolescents.. It is found that individuals differ in behavioural style dimensions in levels of adjustment and their relationship. However, the difference is not significant enough with regard to most of the variables selected for the study, tactics, view, morality, self-adjustment, peer group-adjustment and school-adjustment of adolescents. It can be inferred that Adolescents have grown up significantly to meet the challenges of adjustment problems. This development could be due to the influence of spread of literacy, mass media and similar other factors. The instant access to day to day events might have helped the adolescents to acquire the needed skills and strategies to meet the day to day adjustment problems. Self-adjustment, peer group-adjustment and school-adjustment did not have a significant influence on the behavioural style of adolescents. This could be because of small family norms adopted. However, type of school makes a significant difference in the decision making of adolescents. In schools under government management, less importance is given to spoon feeding methods where as in schools under private management students get few opportunities to think independently and arrive at suitable decisions on their own. Behaviour factors of adolescents influence their decision making process It is because the decision making styles adopted by individuals have the foundation in the personality makeup of the individual. There is no significant difference in behavioural style of adolescents girls and boys. Much behaviour in day to day life goes a long way with the adjustment process. This could be because of the present educational system which is highly independent of personality factors as it stresses more on rote memory and reproduction skills at examination situations rather than all-round development of personality. There is no significant difference in the level of adjustment of adolescents girls and boys. This could be because of the present educational system which gives little scope for development of adjustment skills. There is no significant relationship between behavioural styles and levels adjustment of adolescents girls and boys. It may be because of the present education system which is highly structured towards academic excellence alone and better grades at the final academic results. Hence the behavioural styles and levels adjustment naturally function independent of each other. It can be understood that the gap in the behavioural factors that are seen before 80s are gradually disappearing and at present adolescents are uniform in their personality factors irrespective of order of birth and economic background.
