The issues of interrelation of a general and social intelligence development level and deviant behavior forms are considered in the article. The problematic issues of a high level of intelligence development are discussed not only as instrument of successful social-psychological adaptation, but also as a risk factor of delinquent behavior emergence. The data of the empirical research of interrelation of an intelligence development level (general and emotional) and tendencies to various forms of deviant behavior at the adolescence period are provided. The deficiencies of emotional intelligence as predictors of adolescents’ addictive and autoagressive behavior formation are highlighted; the risks of emergence of the deviant behavior at adolescents with highly developed social intelligence. It is shown that full prevention of various forms of deviant behavior has to assume the work of experts with children and adolescents in the sphere of communication, understanding of their own and others’ emotions, prediction of communicative situations consequences.
