Sažetak

The aim of this study was to determine the level of physical activity of the students at the University of Applied Health Sciences and its association with personality traits (shyness, self-esteem, extraversion, neuroticism and psychoticism), and to establish gender differences
in physical activity as well.

The data was collected from a group of 341 students (264 female, 77 male) at the University of Applied Health Sciences, with average age of 20,65. Physical activity was measured using the Baecke Questionnaire of Habitual Physical Activity (BQ), and personality traits were measured using the Cheek and buss Shyness Scale (CBS), the Rosenberg Self - Esteem Scale (RSES), and the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (EPQ).

The results showed that students are averagely physically active, and that male students are more active than their female colleagues. Furthermore, a significant positive correlation was established between the degree of physical activity and extraversion and selfesteem, while negative correlation was established between the degree of physical activity and shyness.

Further analysis should be conducted to examine the real structure of relationship between physical activity and personality traits, but, as these results also suggest, the relationship certainly exists and should be taken into consideration when creating new programs for promoting physical activity not only in student, but also in general population.
