A group of students enrolled in the 12th year of education was asked to answer a direct application questionnaire containing the following measures: Intimate Friendship Scale (IFS) (Sharabany, 1994), The Self-Perception Profile for College Students (Neemann & Harter, 1986) adapted for the Portuguese population (Ribeiro, 1994), and Family Social Notation – Adapted Graffar, adapted from the original (Graffar, 1956). The values of intimate friendship were found to be higher for girls and the values of perception of physical appearance were higher for boys.
