Μάνδραλη, Μαριάννα/ Mandrali, Marianna

The aim of the present study was to explore the associations between Theory of Mind (ToM), Executive Functions (EF), Emotion Regulation and Shyness. The sample consisted of 50 5th and 6th graders, who completed a self-report scale measuring shyness and difficulties in emotion regulation and were tested in seven tasks of advanced ToM and four EF tasks. Results revealed that shy children exhibited higher scores in difficulties in emotion regulation than their non-shy peers, but there was no difference in their performance in ToM and EF tasks. Shyness was positively and significantly associated with non acceptance, strategies, impulses and goals, dimensions of emotion regulation difficulties. In addition, non acceptance, strategies and impulses of emotion dysregulation were positively and significantly related to inhibition. Lastly, a regression analysis indicated that Non Acceptance of emotions was the only significant predictor of shyness
