Abstract(in English) Bullying is one of social problems and we have to solve this problem for happiness and well-being of the individuals. It is very important for junior high school students that, to make friends, they find conunon sense of values, such as similar interests, same hobbies, and some kind of common activity or striving. However, a few students who cannot find the common sense of values are capable to be the minority, or the potential victim of the bullying. To describe such phenomena, we proposed the formalized agent-based model of both the group formation and minority exclusion to clarify the appearance of the minority. Secondly, in order to model real organizations and social phenomena as hybrid multi-agent systems consisting of both human and machine agents, we upgraded the model to a participation type, so-called, multi-agent system model with making the gaming simulation possible. Thus, an actual player could interact the machine agent, or agent, who worked by the stochastic rules of the model. We examined the availability in both university students and a junior high school student, and obtained similar results so as to be shown by the formalized agent-based model.
