The article describes intercorrelations between character traits of adolescents and their stress coping strategies. The authors indicate that many researchers have studied correlations between coping behavior and different personality characteristics such as anxiety, creativity, the locus of control, self-regulatory function, self-efficacy, academic achievement, etc. However, up to the present, there have been no researches of intercorrelation between coping behavior and character peculiarities in adolescence when these psychological characteristics are being dynamically developed. The study revealed that accentuations of character in adolescence have three types of intercorrelations with stress coping strategies: compensatory, decompensatory and trait-related, incorporated into the corresponding character accentuation.
