Abstracts
The purpose of this study was to test the mediating role of
loneliness in the relationship between social anxiety and
subjective well-being while taking into account the
multidimensionality of social anxiety. Reaching this aim was
preceded by examining the psychometric properties of the
Croatian translation of the SPIN on a sample of 202 students.
The results show support for the one-dimensional structure of
the SPIN. However, it has also been shown that several items
of the inventory may be redundant and that a 2-factor
structure (12 items) fits the data better. The first factor was
described as "observation situations and negative evaluation",
while the second represented "social avoidance and fear". The
total SPIN score showed convergent and divergent construct
validity as well as high levels of internal consistency and test-
-retest reliability. Loneliness fully mediated the relationship
between social anxiety and subjective well-being. The
symptoms of social anxiety that contribute to its relation with
subjective well-being through loneliness are those related to
the concerns of being negatively evaluated or merely
observed by others when experiencing or doing something.
