This study investigated the major areas of interest to Israeli adolescents. An instrument was developed to determine relevant psychological/life-skills domains. Factor analysis revealed nine clusters of variables reflecting the following concerns: self-destructive behavior, close relationships, opposite-sex relations, school, military service, future vocation, physical fitness, social life, and health. Gender and age differences are discussed, and implications of the findings for the educational system are delineated.
