Adolescent Hypocrisy

Journal of Moral Education 5 (1):19-23 (1975)
Abstract: It is argued that adolescence is a developmental phase which is especially prone to certain forms of hypocrisy, and that though the adolescent can be very perceptive of the hypocrisy of adults he is usually blind to his own. To a large extent adolescent hypocrisy is a function of those expectations of adults and peers which conflict with the adolescent's own feelings and desires. Several different forms of adolescent hypocrisy are distinguished and the factors which induce them are described. It is concluded that a close analysis of these phenomena would throw much light upon the social predicament that adolescents find themselves in
