Summary: Shyness has recently emerged as a widely recognized psychological construct. Several psychometrically valid instruments for the assessment of shyness have been developed. Because of the cultural specificity of translated instruments and related methodological problems, the Shyness Scale for the assessment of this construct in Croatia was developed. The scale was administered to a sample of 518 female and 383 male high school graduates. The scale shows a high internal consistency, a practically normal distribution and a high correlation with self-rating of shyness. In accordance with the Croatian sex stereoptype, female adolescents reported a higher degree of shyness than males. No difference in the desired degree of shyness was found between the sexes. The rough comparison of the prevalence of shyness in Croatian subjects with an American polupational mean indicates a similar or somewhat lower degree of shyness among Croatian subjects.

Summary: The aim of this investigation was to examine the relations between self-reliance and some well known personality traits such as sensation seeking, Eysenck's personality dimensions, shyness, machiavellianism, as well as self-rated physical attractiveness. The data, obtained on a sample of 150 male and 211 female university students, were analyzed separately for each sex. Stepwise multiple regression demonstrated that a relatively high percentage of the total variance can be attributed to the set of predictors used in this study, but separate analyses for males and females revealed a somewhat different pattern of results. Self-reliant males are less shy and neurotic, show higher thrill and adventure seeking and lower dissimulation than their less self-reliant peers. Similarly to the males, self-reliant female students are low in neuroticism and shyness. Furthermore, they are more extraverted, have a ower score on the EPQ Lie scale and rate themselves higher on the physical attractiveness scale.
