Abstract

The present study evaluates the relationship between the shyness and academic stress among engineering students studying in Mysuru city. Academic stress inventory (Lin & Chen, 2009) and Shyness Assessment Test (SAT) (D'Souza, 2006) were administered to a sample of 150engineering students. Academic stress of the students was measured in 7 domains and shyness in 3 domains. Data were subjected to product moment correlation and stepwise multiple regression to find out the relationship between stress and shyness as well as to find out the domains of shyness which predict stress. Results revealed that all the domains of shyness are significantly and positively correlated with domains of stress. Further, stepwise multiple regression revealed that out of 3 domains of shyness, cognitive/affective and physiological domains were the major predictors of stress. Strategies for decreasing the extent of stress and shyness among engineering students have been delineated.
