Abstract

 The problem of girls’ running away from their homes has increased in the society in the recent years. It is one of the social problems, and controlling it requires strong management. But besides this factor, character attributes and personal motivation play a significant role in causing this problem. This study is of the retrospective type. Due to this, 120 subjects (60 runaway and 60 normal girls) were chosen. The RUNAWAY GIRLS were chosen from among the girls within 11-30 age range, who were arrested in 1390-1391 by the police and handed over to Tabriz Social Emergency Center. The normal girls were equalized with RUNAWAY GIRLS according to their age, level of education, and financial level. In this study, Carver and White’s activation/ inhibition behavioral systems module was used. The results obtained from the findings in the research showed that there is a difference between the two groups of runaway and normal girls in BEHAVIORAL ACTIVATION SYSTEM and BEHAVIORAL INHIBITION SYSTEM, and that both systems are more active in RUNAWAY GIRLS. The difference between activation/inhibition behavioral systems in runaway and normal girls is meaningful. The theoretical and research -based challenges in finding the character attributes have opened a new window to the questions the researches have thought about for decades. Due to this, the focus of the research is on studying the character attributes responsible for girls’ running away from their homes.
