Sažetak

An investigation was carried out on 139 high school students
and 287 university students. The aim of this study was to
examine the factor structure of Jourard's self-disclosure
questionnaire (SDQ), separately for self-disclosure to six
different persons (mother, father, the best male friend, the
best female friend, partner and stranger). The other aims
were to examine the age and gender differences in self-disclosure as well as relationships among self-disclosure
and shyness. For the self-disclosure to mother and the best
female friend one interpretable factor was excluded. That
means that adolescents disclose themselves to these persons
similarly in more intimate and less intimate spheres. For the
self-disclosure to father, the best male friend, stranger and
partner two factors were extracted. One factor is related to
more intimate, and the other to less intimate spheres of life.
Adolescents disclose themselves to these persons in more
intimate spheres less than to mother and the best female
friend. Shyer adolescents disclose themselves less to father
and the best male friend, while there is no significant
correlation among shyness and self-disclosure to mother and
the best female friend. Girls disclose themselves to mother,
the best female friend and partner more than young men
do. This is related with the findings that adult women
disclose themselves more than adult men do. High school
students in intimate spheres, generally speaking, disclose
themselves less to partner in comparison with university
students. Similarly to that, male high school students disclose
themselves less to father, mother and the best female friend
in comparison with university students.
