This investigation explores people's attitudes towards frustrating environmental ani social situations they could face in their home environments. It was carried out in different types of neighbourhoods, in Recife, Brazil: poor settlements built spontaneously by the people according to their conditions, like slums and favelas; public housing estates presenting standardized housing solutions provided by the government, and middle class neighbourhoods supplied with infrastructure and all kind of services desired by their inhabitants. The investigation makes use of a projective technique based on Rosenzweig's Frustation P-F Study. There are twenty figures presenting situations where daily social, personal and environmental constraints are given by someone stating a problem. The subjects should present their attitudes to the situations giving their immediate responses for each case. The answers are categorized according to three criteria: 1. the perception of the situation (frustrating, not frustrating, frustration being minimized); 2. the attitudes' direction (aggressive, assertive, defiance, defense, conciliatory, conformist, inferiority, alienated); 3. the kind of proposed solution (by the subject, jointly, by others, by the government, absolving from solution, do not proposing solution and regarded as inevitable.) The results where analysed by multidimensional statistical programs (NSA -- POSA). The article discuss the different attitudes presented by these dwellers; regarding the social, personal and environments situations and develops a comparative analysis of results considering the influence of their present social environmental situaLions in determining people's attitudes.
