Abstract
Cilj istraživanja bio je provjeriti učinak osjetljivosti na potkrepljenja te motiva za održavanjem pojma o sebi na evaluativnu koherenciju pojma o sebi. Istraživanje je provedeno online na uzorku od 406 studenata. Osjetljivost na potkrepljenja ispitana je BIS/ BAS skalom (Carver i White, 1994), dok je za ispitivanje motiva za održavanjem pojma o sebi korištena Skala strategija samouljepšavanja i samozaštite (Hepper i sur., 2010). Osim toga, sudionici su ispunjavali i Upitnike pojma o sebi (Marinić, 2014), na osnovu čijih se rezultata računala (evaluativna) koherencija pojma o sebi. Rezultati su pokazali da su pojedine strategije samozaštite pojedinačni prediktor koherencije negativnih aspekata pojma o sebi, dok su osjetljivost na nagrade i pojedine strategije samouljepšavanja prediktori evaluativne koherencije pojma o sebi. Dakle, istraživanje je pokazalo da, za razliku od osjetljivosti na nagrade i motiva za održavanjem pojma o sebi, osjetljivost na kazne nema učinak na koherenciju pojma o sebi. Nadalje, pokazalo se i kako pojedine strategije samouljepšavanja i koherencija pozitivnih elemenata pojma o sebi imaju ulogu medijatora u odnosu između osjetljivosti na nagrade i evaluativne koherencije. Zaključak izveden iz provedenog istraživanja je da se u osnovi evaluativne koherencije pojma o sebi nalaze određeni motivacijski aspekti i aspekti ličnosti, međutim strukturalni aspekti imaju veći učinak na evaluativnu koherenciju.

The aim of this study was to examine the effects of reinforcement sensitivity and self-evaluation motives on evaluative coherence of self concept. The survey was conducted online with a sample of 406 students. Reinforcement sensitivity was examined with BIS/BAS scale (Carver i White, 1994) and self evaluation motives were examined with Self-Enhancement and Self-Protection Strategies Scale (Hepper i sur., 2010). Also, participants completed Self-concept questionnaires (Marinić, 2014), based on this results was computed evaluative coherence of the self. Study results indicated that certain Self- Protection strategies are significant predictors of coherence of negative self concept aspects, while reward sensitivity and certain Self-Enhancement strategies are significant predictors of evaluative coherence. Therefore, study indicates that, in contrast of reward sensitivity and self evaluation motives, punishment sensitivity has no effect on the coherence of self concept. Furthermore, certain Self- Enhancement strategies and coherence of positive self concept elements were mediators between reward sensitivity and evaluative coherence of the self concept. The conclusion of this study is that some personality and motivational aspects are determinants of evaluative coherence of the self concept, but structural aspects have greater impact on evaluative coherence of the self.
