Data collection was conducted through the use of 6 Questionnaire that modified by the investigator. The data was analyzed by the SPSS win 10.0 program using Descriptive statistics, Pearson Correlation coefficient and stepwise multiple regression. Result: 1) The mean of total item score the Deviant Behaviors scales was 1.59, which was slightly low. 2) There was a significant correlation between Deviant Behaviors, Type A Personality, Aggression, Impulsivity, Stress and Social Support(γ= .11 ～ .65, p<.001), but It was no significant correlation Type A Personality and Stress(γ= -.01). 3) Stepwise multiple regression analysis showed that (1) Impulsivity, Social Support and Type A Personality were the predictors of Deviant Behaviors and account for 18.6％ of the variance in Deviant Behaviors. (2) Impulsivity account for 3.6％ of the variance in Deviant Behaviors in Subjects with a lower degree of score the Deviant Behaviors. Impulsivity and Social Support account for 23.2％ of the variance in Deviant Behaviors in subjects with higher degree of score the Deviant Behaviors. (3) Impulsivity account for 18.3％ of the variance in Deviant Behaviors in High school girls (n=350). Impulsivity and Social Support account for 20.1％ of the variance in Deviant Behaviors in High school boys (n=347).
