The aim of this research was to examine whether girls differ from boys in respect of submissive behaviors and automatic negative thoughts. Psychological assessments were performed using the Submissive Acts Scale (SAS; Gilbert & Allan, 1994, adapted by Sahin & Sahin, 1992a) and the Automatic Thoughts Questionnaire (ATQ; Hollon & Kendall, 1980, adapted by Aydin & Aydin, 1990 and Sahin & Sahin, 1992b). Students’ t test and logistic regression statistics were employed to analyze the data. Results indicate that the mean of the SAS scores of the boys was higher than that of the girls. While there was a statistically significant relationship between gender and the SAS scores, no relationship was observed between gender and the ATQ scores. The findings of this study suggested that adolescent boys show more submissive behaviors than do adolescent girls.
