We all live in a physical and social environment, and try to cope with it according to our personal characteristics, and personal - social-cultural goals. The environment advantage is a new model which expresses the relative level of coping with environmental constraints, as a result of interactions between social and physical aspects of our activity patterns. The environmental advantage is based on the individual's accessibility to physical and social resources, which are reflected in his/her activities. The paper will present the conclusions of a study which examined the theoretical model empirically, by 400 interviews with men and women from different social groups, and in different environments. The hypotheses of the study are: * The broarder the variety and range of an individual's activity patternstructure - the higher the environmental advantage level. * There is a mutual dependence between the social and the physical aspects of the activity pattern and it influences the environmental advantage level. * Environmental advantage increases up to a certain level, beyond which a change takes place in one of two directions: either reinforcement and consolidation of the environmental advantage existing level or a change in the either structure
