The objective of this study was to compare identity styles and friendship quality among female and male adolescent students in Khash. To this end, a corpus of 400 female and male students (199 female students and 201 male students) studying in Khash was selected using the cluster random sampling method. The measurement tools applied in the current study were the Berzonsky Identity Styles Questionnaire (1992) and the Hejazi and Zohrevand Friendship Quality Inventory (2000). For data analysis, the t-test was used to compare the means of the two independent groups. The obtained results showed significant differences between the mean scores of the female and male students on all the subscales considered in the Identity Style Questionnaire except for the diffuse-avoidant style. Moreover, there were not any significant differences between the mean scores of the female and male students on the total score of friendship quality and the subscale of satisfaction at the 95% confidence level. However, considering the subscales of proximity, self-disclosure, and trust, significant differences were found between the mean scores of the female and male students.
