Abstract:   (19 Views)
Objective: This research explores the intricate dynamics between Type D personality, cognitive appraisal, and mental stress, seeking to unravel the mediating role of cognitive appraisal in the association between Type D personality and mental stress.
Methods: A structural equation modeling was conducted, emphasizing the influence of personality traits on mental stress and the potential mitigating impact of cognitive appraisal skills. Data was collected via Type D personality scale, Cognitive reappraisal scale and Mental stress inventory.
Results: The study confirmed the positive influence of Type D personality on mental stress while revealing that cognitive appraisal operates as a significant mediator, exerting a moderating effect on the relationship between Type D personality and mental stress. The findings underscore the nuanced interplay between individual personality traits and the cognitive interpretation of stressors, shedding light on how cognitive appraisal could potentially serve as a buffer against the adverse impact of Type D personality on mental stress.
Conclusions: These results provide a framework for further research into effective interventions aimed at enhancing cognitive appraisal skills to alleviate mental stress, particularly in individuals with Type D personalities, fostering the development of targeted mental health strategies.
