Abstract: Research object was senior adolescents’ expression of aggression. Research aim was to reveal the peculiarities of the expression of aggression in senior adolescents of different physical activity levels under the aspect of gender. Hypotheses: 1. It can be assumed that expression of aggression in boys is higher than in girls. Verbal aggression is more characteristic for girls. 2. Expression of physical aggression in physically active adolescents is higher than in physically passive adolescents. Research methods and organization. The research was carried out in Vilnius and Kaunas schools in March, 2014. Research participants were 245 students (128 girls and 117 boys) of age 15 ± 0.6 years. Physical activity was established using IPAQ questionnaire. In order to establish aggression, the study employed A. Basso’s and A. Darki’s questionnaire (Волков, 2002). It allowed assessing various forms of aggression expression: physical, verbal, indirect aggression, irritation, and negativity as well as grievance, suspicion, and feelings of guilt. Statistical data analysis was performed using SPSS 19.0 software package, whereas conclusions were drawn referring to Kolmogorov-Smirnov, Shapiro and Wilk tests, Mann–Whitney U criterion, and Student’s t test. Results and conclusions. Comparing expression of aggression in physically active girls and boys, it was established that physical aggression was more common in boys compared to girls (p < 0.05). Verbal aggression and irritability were more typical for girls demonstrating insufficient physical activity levels; expression of grievance was more typical in sufficiently physically active girls (p < 0.05). Physical and verbal aggression were more typical for boys with sufficient physical activity than for boys who were not enough physically active.
