Abstract
Cilj ovog istraživanja bio je ispitati odnos crta ličnosti, anksiozne osjetljivosti, netolerancije na neizvjesnost, samokompetentnosti i samosviđanja sa simptomima panike, brige i socijalne anksioznosti. U istraživanju je sudjelovalo 436 studenata fakulteta u Osijeku i Splitu. Sudionici su ispunili podatke o socio-demografskim varijablama, Petofaktorski upitnik ličnosti (Benet-Martinez i John, 1998), Indeks anksiozne osjetljivosti (Reiss, Peterson, Gursky i McNally, 1986), Skraćenu verziju Upitnika netolerancije na neizvjesnost (Carleton, Norton i Asmundson, 2007), Revidiranu verziju Ljestvice samosviđanja i samokompetentnosti (Tafarodi i Swann, 2001), Beckovu ljestvicu anksioznosti (Beck, Epstein, Brown i Steer, 1988), Ljestvicu brige (Meyer, Miller, Metzger i Borkovec, 1990) te Ljestvicu straha od negativne evaluacije (Leary, 1983). Pokazalo se kako studenti s višim razinama anksiozne osjetljivosti te niže savjesnosti pokazuju izraženije simptome panike. Neuroticizam ostvaruje indirektan doprinos objašnjenju simptoma panike putem anksiozne osjetljivosti i netolerancije neizvjesnosti. Nadalje, studenti s izraženijim neuroticizmom, netolerancijom neizvjesnosti i anksioznom osjetljivosti te s nižim razinama otvorenosti i samosviđanja pokazuju više simptoma brige. Neuroticizam doprinosi objašnjenju simptoma brige direktno, ali i indirektno putem anksiozne osjetljivosti i netolerancije neizvjesnosti. Konačno, studenti viših godina, s izraženijom netolerancijom neizvjesnosti te nižim razinama otvorenosti i samosviđanja pokazuju izraženiju socijalnu anksioznost. Neuroticizam i ekstraverzija doprinose objašnjenju simptoma socijalne anksioznosti indirektno pri čemu neuroticizam djeluje preko samosviđanja i netolerancije neizvjesnosti, a ekstraverzija putem samosviđanja.

Parallel abstract (English)
The aim of this research was to examine relations between personality traits, anxiety sensitivity, intolerance of uncertainty, self-competence, self-liking, symptoms of panic, worry, and social anxiety. 436 students from faculties in Osijek and Split participated in this research. Participants completed data on socio-demographic variables, Big Five Inventory (Benet-Martinez & John, 1998), Anxiety Sensitivity Index (Reiss, Peterson, Gursky, & McNally, 1986), Intolerance of Uncertainty Scale - Short Form (IUS-12; Carleton, Norton, & Asmundson, 2007), Self-Liking/Self-Competence Scale-Revised (Tafarodi & Swann, 2001), Beck Anxiety Inventory (Beck, Epstein, Brown, & Steer, 1998), Penn State Worry Questionnaire (Meyer, Miller, Metzger, & Borkovec, 1990) and Brief Fear of Negative Evaluation Scale (Leary, 1983). It has been shown that students with a higher level of anxiety sensitivity as well as with lower conscientiousness show more pronounced symptoms of panic. Neuroticism had indirect contribution to the explanation of symptoms of panic through anxiety sensitivity and intolerance of uncertainty. Moreover, students with higher neuroticism, intolerance of uncertainty, and anxiety sensitivity as well as with a lower level of openness and self-liking show more symptoms of worry. Neuroticism contributes directly to the explanation of symptoms of worry, but also indirectly through anxiety sensitivity and intolerance of uncertainty. Finally, university seniors, with more pronounced intolerance of uncertainty and lower level of openness and self-liking show higher social anxiety. Both neuroticism and extraversion contribute indirectly to the explanation of symptoms of social anxiety whereas neuroticism acts through self-liking and intolerance of uncertainty, and extraversion acts through self-liking.
