The object is to compare leisure patterns in adolescents (15-18 years) and adults (35-55 years) and the logic of their formation in Iranian families. Gender identity and religiosity role in these patterns are also investigated. 2615 adolescent and adult using cluster random sampling in 15 districts of Isfahan were chosen in this survey. Leisure practices were analyzed in three groups (individual, family base and friend base leisure) using factor analysis to obtain patterns. Family leisure in adolescents had two patterns. Individual leisure had three patterns and friend base leisure in two patterns was categorized. Individual and family leisure in adult group had 3 patterns each and finally friend base leisure was categorized in 2 patterns similar to adolescents. Findings show that individual patterns are different in adolescent and adults qualitatively. Film and music are matter a lot for adolescents and it is religiosity which makes the patterns different. In adult group gender identity and education make patterns distinct. Some individual and family patterns had significant negative relationship with religiosity. We did cluster analysis using individual leisure patterns for age groups. We found a high religious and three less religious clusters in adolescents and an educated, less traditional cluster along with a less educated, traditional group of adults. First group got high scores in religious patterns of leisure and second group had lower scores in religious patterns but they are more active in family base patterns.
