This study purpor ted to anal yze and clarify factors that cause interpersonal stress, conflicts, infe- riori ty complex and dislocation in adolescence. Study I identified three categories of interpersonal stress: (1) interpersonal conflict, (2) interpersonal inferiori t y complex, and (3) interpersonal disloca- tion. Study II examined correlations between personali ty trai t scales and these three categories. These correlations were analyzed according to stressfulness and frequency of events. As a resul t, validi ty of the three categories was suppor ted, and it was suggested that different strategies were necessar y for intervention in order to reduce the impact of stress. Key
