The work examines ideas about the peculiarities of empathy and strategies of behavior in conflict situations of young men 21–22 years old. It was found that at this age, the average level of empathy prevails, which is characterized by a selective attitude towards people, the ability to separate their and other people's emotions in communication, understand the experiences of the other and take them into account when interacting. A third of students show a high level of empathy, are distinguished by the ability to maintain friendships, easy understanding and empathy of other people's emotions. From the sample, significant gender differences in the manifestation of empathy in favor of girls were calculated. Also, students of a technical university have revealed values of the conflict coefficient above the average, although compromise, avoidance and cooperation are the predominant strategies for behavior in the conflict. It is determined that the average values of all strategies of behavior in conflict, except the strategy of adaptation, are in the range of the average level of development. We also proved that there are gender differences in the manifestation of behavior strategies in conflict and the level of development of empathy in late adolescence. Girls are dominated by compromise behavior, and guys are dominated by adaptive behavior in conflict.
