What separates the compliant from the rebel?

As an assistant principal a large portion of my daily job involves monitoring student behavior during passing periods, classroom observations, break times, etc. This focus on student behavior brings about the question of the comparison between the compliant/rebel behaviors. I would be curious to know the thoughts of other people and what the beliefs are about why some students choose to be compliant, while others choose to be defiant.
