The participants were all middle-class females between the ages of fourteen and seventeen. One had been sexually abused as a child. Two were voluntarily sexually active at the time that the questionnaire was administered. Of the five participants, three were Caucasian, two were African American, and one was Asian American. Their family income range was between forty and fifty thousand dollars a year. None of them had ever been diagnosed with mental or mood disorders. The average age was 16.2 years old. The overall mean Likert scale score was 37.1. The median score was 37.1. However, for the two girls aged fourteen and fifteen, the level of their distrust was 32. The standard deviation was 1.7. It is important to remember that the Likert scale is more interpretive of the range of trust and distrust. Given such a broad scale, the careful and slow process will be essential to the cases of those participants with scores of forty or more. Furthermore, because critically analyzing and comparing is typical of distrust, the administrator must be prepared to endure any remarks made in the attempt to create a distance from the participant, such as insults, lewd behavior, etc. The mean score of our study was higher than anticipated, but the adolescent years are typically years of upheaval. However, these results imply that other developments, as in social or psychological arenas, come to bear at an average age of sixteen. The standard deviation was startlingly small in the three females aged sixteen or seventeen.
