Workers’ Conformism

Nikolay Ivantchev


Conformism was studied among 46 workers with different kinds of occupations by means of two modified scales measuring conformity by Santor, Messervey, and Kusumakar (2000) – scale for perceived peer pressure and scale for conformism in antisocial situations. The hypothesis of the study that workers’ conformism is expressed in a medium degree was confirmed partly. More than a half of the workers conform in a medium degree for taking risk, and for the use of alcohol and drugs, and for sexual relationships. More than a half of the respondents conform in a small degree for anti-social activities (like a theft). The workers were more inclined to conform for risk taking (10.9%), then – for the use of alcohol, drugs and for sexual relationships (8.7%), and in the lowest degree – for anti-social activities (6.5%). The workers who were inclined for the use of alcohol and drugs tended also to conform for anti-social activities.
