ABSTRACT:  Thirty-two (32) sophomore high school students (16 male and 16 female) from Montessori Child Learning Center were randomly chosen as participants for the study which aims to answer three problems regarding the help-seeking behavior of adolescents: first, if there is a reliable difference task achievement goals and ego achievement goals' second, if there is a reliable difference between male and female participants; and third, if there is an interaction of achievement goals and gender. The instrument used was thirty-two (32) happy cube puzzles consisting of sic pieces for each puzzle. Statistical tool used was the F-test using 2-way anova. The results showed that: there is a reliable differences between task achievement goals and ego achievement goals; there is no reliable difference between the male and female participants; and there is no interaction of achievements goals and gender with regard to help-seeking behavior of adolescents. Implications of the results are the following: when learning is the objective of the initiation of the task, task-involved orientation would be better. But if the sense of competitiveness and independence are the attitudes to be instilled, the ego-involved orientation would be more suitable. Hence, both achievement goals can be applied and achieve positive results, depending on the situation. Thus, the following recommendations are presented: first, a further study regarding help-seeking behavior using age as one of the independent variables can be undertaken; second, future experiments could use a bigger sample size to reach a more valid result and; third, experiments can use the same methodology but utilizing a different test like a set of questions.
