The article deals with the study of psychological characteristics in adolescence suggestibility, leading to the emergence addicted behaviors. Analysis of the literature on this subject made it possible to identify further research on the psychological characteristics of suggestibility.The purpose of this article is to study the psychological features of increased suggestibility in adolescence. Methods of research of suggestibility in adolescence are considered.The results of the study of psychological peculiarities of suggestibility prove that girls and boys of adolescence who have increased suggestiveness are more oriented to the reference group, parents and others.  They are not self-confident, they deny the lack of life's aspirations, find ways out in stressful situations, listen to the opinions of others, etc.  Also, high school students and students are characterized by stress, anxiety, high anxiety and low self-esteem.  Self-esteem is an integral part of the "I" -concept, "I" the image, a manifestation of the subjective activity of the individual.  Individual peculiarities of self-assessment influence the formation of such features of character as confidence, criticality, and others.  Undervalued self-esteem leads to the fact that an individual in adolescence can easily get addictive behavior.  Dependent behavior is one of the forms of destructive behavior that manifests itself in the desire to escape from reality by changing its own mental state by using certain substances or by permanently fixing attention on certain objects or types of activity that is accompanied by the development of intense emotions, a state of excitement and anxiety.  Correlation analysis revealed the nature of the link between the indicators of suggestibility and the indicators of "I-concept", anxiety and self-esteem, which correlate with suggestiveness (suggestion). The prospect of further research is to deepen the study of suggestibility as determinants of dependent forms of behavior in adolescence and to the correction of increased suggestibility.
