Individuals with neurotic personality properties are more prone to built fast and persistent associations between noxious events and their consequences which might result in high risk for anxiety disorders. Developmental structure also seems to be a determinant of individuals' resistance and coping capacity against events inducing anxiety. This study examined the relationship among particular trait features of personality, narcissistic developmental line, state/trait anxiety level, and locus of control. Our results indicate that introvert adolescents making internal attributions are more prone to develop a narcissistic self structure and display high trait and state anxiety levels when compared to extrovert adolescents. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.
