The article considers the problem of studying the need-motivational sphere of teenagers who tend to become the Internet-addicted. Using M. Rokich’s techniques the authors point out and rank two classes of values of the risk group adolescents: terminal and instrumental ones. The analysis of the data shows that on the background of the lack of a clear hierarchy of motives, the Internet-addicted teenagers’ dominant values are the following: striving for entertainment, public recognition, independence, and material wealth. At the same time, such values as: active life, creative activity, spiritual and physical development, intellectual development, happiness of others, happy family life, and love, are placed in the lower position in the hierarchy of values. The results presented in the article allow to improve preventive work with adolescents, who tend to become the Internet-addicted.

Key words

the Internet-addiction, motivation, needs, hierarchy of values, terminal and instrumental values, a person’s orientation
