<p>Y-G test was performed to 224 adolescent boys between 14 and 19 years old. The results were analysed by ages and 4 criminal types, that is, larceny (L), bodily injury and violencies (V), extortion (E) and sexual misconducts (S). (Table 2)</p><p>We made “A” and “B” scales for discriminating the 4 types. “A” scales made of responses of over 50 % to every type. (Table 3) “B” scale made of the responses statistically significant to every type. (Table 4) Each scale gives 4 scores; L-score, V-score, E-score, and S-score per a delinquent.</p><p>Both scales discriminated the types with fairly good level, namely, the highest score tended to point out his misdeed. (Table 5 & 7)</p><p>This suggests that there is a new type of criminal theory which depends on the idea of vector.</p><p>In the future, the other types of criminal behaivor, as vectors, will be added to this study.</p>
