Anorexia nervosa among young people has escalated rapidly during recent decades. A key question in the investigation was whether this type of young person can always adequately adjust to the demand of her life-situation. Two representative groups were involved in the tested sample, namely an experimental group suffering from anorexia nervosa and control group with normal eating habits. All respondents were subjected to testing with the PHSF relationships questionnaire and the 16-PF, HSPQ. The test results were statistically analysed and the following conclusions could be derived: The young females with anorexia nervosa differ significantly from other young females regarding personality characteristics, the primary components of their adjustment to life and relationships with other people.
