Security –Insecurity are two factors which to a great extent determine the personality of adolescents. Security is a state of mind in which one is willing to accept the consequences of one’s behaviors. Modern psychologists have shown that the most important factor for an adolescent’s healthy development is love and affection, adjustment and sense of security which is further dependent on the attitude of parents towards their children (Bossard & Boll, 1954). Main objectives of the present research work are to assess the level of adjustment and security insecurity. Appropriate standard tools of adjustment and security insecurity were used and the random sampling technique was used in the selection of the sample for the present study. In the present study, a sample of 80 rural and urban adolescents was taken – 40 rural and 40 urbans. The age range of the subjects was 15-17 years. Two-way ANOVA (2×2) factorial design was used to see the effect of the main factors. Findings of the present study indicate that the rural adolescent showed a higher level of adjustment as compared to urban adolescents, whereas urban adolescent had shown a higher level of security insecurity feelings. On the other hand, the gender difference was reported insignificant among the adolescent for adjustment and security insecurity level.
