    Summary: In the period between November 7 and December 6, 1991, 419 citizens of Zagreb were examined concerning their behaviour and reactions during the emergency alarms. A quota sample was designed in order to represent two endangered parts of the city and the two less endangered ones, and to include residents of both old and new buildings. The basic statistical indicators for the overall sample are reported, along with some specific features in answers related to the residence of subjects.

    Summary: A research was carried out to establish what bothered people during the air raids. The research involved a quota sample of 419 citizens of Zagreb. 23 variables were analyzed by the two-way analysis of variance and by the factor analysis. Three factors were obtained: the physical features and the conditions in the shelter, the insufficient and untimely information and the social surroundings. The article suggests measures for eliminating the discomfort for possible future situations of taking shelters.

    Summary: According to the previous findings, a higher level of shyness and fewer romantic relationships could be expected among high school graduates than among university students. The Shyness Scale, including the question on the number of longer and more stable romantic relationships, was administered to the sample of 385 male high school graduates and 244 male university students. The results confirmed both our expectations, but also revealed certain age differences in the structure of the results.

    Summary: The strategies of making decisions to take shelter were analyzed on the sample of 419 citizens of Zagreb. Differences between four groups of subjects varying in strategies of making decisions to take shelter were analyzed by the discriminant analysis. Two discriminant functions significantly differentiate the groups. The first one is defined by the civil defense education, age and family responsibility. The second function is defined by secondary aggresivity and intolerance of conditions in the shelter.

    Summary: On a sample of 211 male convicts the relation between cognitive and conative personality characteristics (both defined according to the cybernetic models) was analyzed, as well as their adaptation to penal treatment. Canonical analysis of co-variance resulted in two significant pairs of quasi canonical factors. The first pair shows that conative factors are more important in adaptation to penal treatment. The second pair stresses relatively frequent personality disorders among the convicts.

    Summary: The relation between the efficiency of the cognitive processors and the system for the integration of regulative functions, both defined according to the cybernetic models, was examined on the sample of convicts. Cannonical correlation analysis of the data revealed significant relation between the first pair of cannonical factors, showing that lower efficacy of cognitive processors is accompanied by the lower efficacy of the system for the integration of regulative functions.

    Summary: Differences between the groups of citizens with different frequencies of taking shelter during alarms were analyzed using the discriminant analysis technique. Two discriminant functions are obtained, showing that groups with different frequency of taking shelters differ regarding the tolerance of the physical environment in a shelter, family status and age. Dominant group of citizens, i.e. those who take shelter regularly, better stands physical conditions in shelter and has family responsibilities.

    Summary: Stress reactions, defined according to the cybernetic personality model, were examined on a sample of 162 females. The data were analyzed by the discriminant analysis techique, separately for the emergency alarm situations and for the situations which remind on the emergency alarms. Obtained differences between the group of mothers and group of women without children support predictions derived from the Lazarus model of psychological stress, revealing that mothers were reacting with the more intensive stress reactions in both types of the situations.

    Summary: A comparison of the behaviour of citizens living in the area strongly affected by the war operations (Sisak) with the citizens in much less endangered area (Zagreb) was carried out. Two highly comparable samples of citizens in Zagreb (N=211) and in Sisak (N=207) were examined. The results of this comparison show the expected differences in the civil defense education, behaviour and experiences, and they clearly reflect the real differences between Zagreb and Sisak in the exposure to the war destruction.

    Summary: The latent structure of reactions to the sound of alert siren and the latent structure of reactions to the sound that is similar to the sound of alert siren is examined on the sample of 419 subjects. The sample of reactions has been selected on the basis of a cybernetic personality model in the area of four regulatory systems. Dysfunctions of these systems are responsible for anxiety, conversive, dissociative and aggressive reactions. Results of the factor analysis show high correlations between the first main components. Anxiety, conversive and dissociative reactions are dominant in their structure, whereas aggressive reactions are found to be the least frequent. The actual number of factors found in reactions to both examined situations is not four, as it was expected, but three. Namely, anxious and conversive reactions defined the common factor, showing that mutually connected processes occur in the situation of an intensive stress in the systems for the regulation and control of defense reactions and organic functions. Basically identical or very similar structures of reactions in both examined situations can be interpreted as an indicator of the phenomenon of the increased sensitization, i.e. generalization of stimuli in situations of frequent stress.

    Summary: Two parallel forms of an objective test and two parallel forms of an attitude test were given to 60 female students under different instructions.Subjects were also asked to report a degree of their confidence in answers they have chosen. Different instructions affected the number of responses to false questions and the degree of subjects' confidence in their correctness. Furthermore, it was shown that there is a differential effect of two types of instructions on objective and attitude tests.

    Summary: in 1966 M. Marković developed a conservativism scale, adapted to the students of Zagreb University. 25 years later scale was administered to the sample of students analogous to the initial one. In this administration the percentage of neutral answers increased from 8.2 in 1966 to 13.4% Interitem correlations are dominantly low and only 44 out of 190 exceeds .33. Item correlation matrix yielded 7 significant eigenvalues with, consecutively, small differences in the percentage of explained variance. Structure of the first principal component confirms that sclae is not factorially simple. Response distribution, interitem correlations and significant eigenvalues reveal that scale is now out of date and therefore is not a valid measuring instrument.

    Summary: As a part of the evaluation of the recently developed Shyness Scale, the Scale's sensitivity to developmental trends was also examined. According to previous findings, shyness reaches its peak in early adolescence. Therefore high school gaduates should have higher level of shyness than university students. Shyness Scale was anonymously administered along with two seven-point scales for the self rated shyness and desired degree of shyness to the sample of 903 high school graduates from Zagreb (518 females and 385 males) and 631 students of Zagreb University (387 females and 244 males). Subjects were aslo asked to indicate a number of longer and more stable romantic relationships. High internal consistency of the scale was found. As expected, high school graduates had higher level of shyness than university students. Sex was also a relevant factor - females report higher degree of shyness, regardless of age. Sex or age differences in desired level of shyness were not found. High correlations between scale results and self reported shyness, as well as significant negative correlation between scale result and number of longer and more stable romantic relations provided evidence confirming validity of the Shyness Scale.

    Summary: Alarm situations are a source of strong sress, although all categories of citizens will not perceive these situations as equally stressful. It can be expected that motherhood is one of the factors that intensifies experienced stress. Thus stress reactions were analyzed on a sample of 162 women up to 50 years of age, out of whom 102 mothers and 61 without children, separately for alarm situations and separately for situation that reminds on alarm. The differences in reactions of the two groups are analyzed using the discriminant analysis.Results clearly show the polarization of the two groups regarding the obtained discriminant function in both situations. Discriminant function for both situations could best be described by variables defining anxious-conversive syptomatology. Mothers in both situations show more of the described symptoms, what could be explained under Lazarus stress model.

    Summary: The behavior of taking shelter during alarms proves that a number of citizens considered these alarms as a series of mutually dependent events. A number of citizens took shelter more frequently at the beginning of alarms period, while a number of others took shelter more often after the alarms became more frequent. Two discriminant functions show that groups of citizens with different frequency of shelter taking during alarms differ regarding the tolerance of physical environment in shelters, but also regarding their age. The younger took shelter more frequently at the beginning, and they are less tolerant of teh conditions in shelter: they are similar to the group that took shelter equally irregularly during the etire alarm period. Later, shelter was taken more frequently by older persons who dislike it: they are placed within the same quadrant of discriminant functions as those who did not took shelter at all. The dominant group of citizens, i.e. those who took shelter regularly, are those who are more tolerant of physical conditions in the shelter, what differs them from other groups.

    Summary: On quota sample of 419 citizens of Zagreb latent structure of reactions to the sound of alert siren and latent structure of reactions to the sound similar to the alert siren were examined. The sample of reactions was chosen according to a cybernetic personality model, in the domain of four regulatory mechanisms. Results show a high correlation between first principal components. Dominant in their structure are anxoius, conversive and dissociative reactions, while aggresive reactions are less frequently present. The actual number of factors obtained for two examined situations is not four, as it was presumed, but three. Namely, anxious and conversive reactions defined the common factor. Basically identical or very similar structures of reactions in two situations can be interpreted as an indicator of the phenomenon of increased sensitization, i.e. generalization of stimuli in situations of a frequent stress.

    Summary: The aim of the study was to examine several concurrent models of relationship between masculinity and femininity and broadly conceived concept of psychological health on a sample of 464 high school graduates, 232 males and 232 females. Bem Sex Role Inventory for assessing masculinity and femininity, and six personality scales of cybernetic model were administered. Results of the multivariate analysis of variance with masculinity, femininity and sex as independent variables, and personality scales as dependent variables resulted in statistical significance of all three main effects. Masculinity main effect is the strongest, resulting in statistically significant differences between high and low masculine group on all six personality scales. Generally, high masculine subjects report less psychopathological symptoms, i.e. more efficient conative functioning compared to the low masculine group. Thus this investigation provides further support for the empirically best confirmed masculinity model which emphasizes the crucial role of masculine, instrumental traits in efficient conative functioning. The aim of the study was to examine several concurrent models of the relation between masculinity and femininity and broadly conceived concept of psychological health on a sample of 464 high school graduates, 232 males and 232 females.

    Summary: The purpose of this research was to examine whether dating behaviour could be predicted by a set of well-known personality dimensions (extroversion, neuroticism, psychoticism, sensation seeking, shyness and machiavellianism) and by self-rated physical attractiveness. The sample consisted of 211 female and 150 male university students, dominantly aged 19 to 23 years. The results indicate a very weak possibility of predicting dating behaviour by the set of variables used in this research. Furthermore a different pattern of results was obtained for males and females. Males who date more frequently are more extraverted and show some signs of machiavellianism. According to the trend of results, females with more dating experience tend to be more disinhibited, less shy and lower in psychoticism than their peers who date less frequently. It can be concluded that dating behaviour is a very complex phenomenon, probably influenced by a number of socialization variables not investigated here, than by set of personality characteristics assessed in this research.

    Summary: Previous research has revealed that shyness reaches its peak in early adolescence. Therefore it can be expected that high school graduates have higher level of shyness than university students. In order to check this hypothesis, a recently constructed Shyness Scale was administered to the sample of 903 high school graduates (518 females and 383 males) and 631 university students (387 females and 244 males), along with two seven-point scales: self-rated shyness and desired degree of shyness. Furthermore, students reported the number of longer and more stable romantic relations with the opposite sex. The results revealed higher level of shyness in high school graduates compared to university students, as it was expected. Gender of subjects has emerged as a relevant factor as well - the females reported higher degree of shyness, but the interaction of gender and age was not found. No sex or age differences were found considering desired level of shyness. In general, subjects do not prefer a complete absence of shyness, but rather choose its moderate level.

    Summary: The results of the 445 female and 369 male high school graduates on newly developed Shyness Scale were related with subjects' self-assessment on three seven-point scales: a) self-assessment of shyness, b) desired degree of shyness and c) physical attractiveness. Students also reported the number of longer and more stable relationships with opposite sex. Girls had higher results on both measures of shyness than their male colleagues. No sex difference in desired shyness was found. Men reported a higher number of romantic relatiosnhips than women, who, on the other hand, assessed themselfes as prettier than men. In the male sample significant correlations between results on the Shyness Scale and self-assessment of shyness, as well as between self-assessment of shyness and desirable degree of shyness were found. In the sample of women, the obtained resultsshow that shier women report fewer romantic relationships and assess themselves as less attractive. Interesting enough, perceived physical attractiveness was not predicive for the number of romantic relationships in both sexes.

    Summary: The aim of this investigation was to examine the relations between self-reliance and some well known personality traits, as well as with self-rated physical attractiveness. The data, obtained on a sample of 150 male and 211 female university students, were analyzed separately for each sex. Regression analysis showed 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 lower score on the EPQ L scale and rate themselves higher on the physical attractiveness scale.

    Summary: This investigation examined several concurrent models of relations between masculinity and femininity and broadly conceived concept of psychological health on the sample of 464 high school graduates, 232 males and 232 females. Bem Sex Role Inventory for assessing masculinity and femininity and six personality scales of cybernetic model were administered. Results were clearly in favor of masculinity model, which has gained the most empirical support in previous research. Namely, the possession of instrumental, masculine traits was related to lower levels of psychopathological symptoms, i.e more efficient and healthier personality functioning in both sexes.
