Worry is a common psychological occurrence. However, the existing researches mainly concentrate on pathological worries, and only a few studies pay attention to normal worries, especially the normal worry tendency in young students. In fact, such researches could not only draw people’s concern about the normal worries, but also are theoretical appeal to the study of worry and the need of subject development of psychological in students.In this thesis, the author explored the concept and structure of worry tendency by the qualitative methods of literature summary and open-ended survey, and then formulated a credible and applicable Worry Tendency Questionnaire in Chinese Young Students (WTQ-CYS). The results show that worry tendency, which is an inclination to worry and think about important things at hand and in the future, is a long-term and habitual cognitive style, and tendency to worry in young students is a conceptual structure of such five factors as learning worry, relationship worry, aimlessness in future, lack of confidence and health worry. Worry tendency is practically defined by WTQ-CYS which is produced by construction study, preparative test, formal test, analysis of exploratory factors and confirmatory factors. Meanwhile, WTQ-CYS has good qualities of psychometrics in inner consistency reliability, split-half reliability; re-test reliability, content validity, construction validity, criterion validity and empirical validity.The author investigated the characters of worry tendency in Chinese young students by measuring them with WTQ-CYS. The results show that the level of tendency to worry in Chinese young students is generally moderate, and it spirals up from Grade 4 and Grade 5 in primary school to senior high school, and then drops back in college. Moreover, great differences exist between sexes, grades, places of residence and parents’ education styles. Girls’ tendency is significantly higher than boys’; senior high school students are obviously higher than any other young students; and students educated by democratic parents are significantly higher than those educated by parents with autocratic, spoiling, and laissez-fairy style.
