Throughout this paper, I wanted to highlight that a very high or  a very low self-esteem at  Roma teens may be the cause of a non-social conformism. The research sample was composed of a homogeneous group of subjects consisting of 40 teenagers, all students (boys) belonging to the same community. I have aimed to a group that comes from similar socio-economical and educational environment. The hypothesis hasn’t been confirmed, which indicates that there may be other factors that could cause significant changes such as personality factors, educational level, representative models of ethnicity etc.
