ABSTRACT
The aim of the present study is to examine the relationships between global self-evaluations (self-esteem, self-efficacy), dispositional optimism, beliefs (irrational and rational), and generalized trust. The data were collected from 92 participants using Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (Rosenberg, 1965; Baban, 1998), Generalized Self-Efficacy Scale (Jerusalem & Schwarzer, 1995; Baban, 1998), The Life Orientation Test (Scheier & Carver, 1985; Baban, 1998, ABS (DiGiuseppe, Leaf, Exner, & Robin, 1988; Macavei, 2002) and a two-item scale to measure generalized trust. The results indicate that self-esteem, self-efficacy, dispositional optimism and the two types of beliefs (rational and irrational) are not associated with generalized trust. Also, it was found that self-esteem is positively associated with self-efficacy and dispositional optimism. Instead these associations, it wasn't identified a second-order factor to explain the relationship between self-esteem, self-efficacy and dispositional optimism. The results indicate that global selfevaluations (self-esteem, self-efficacy), dispositional optimism, rational and irrational beliefs don't have significant associations with generalized trust. The implications, limits and future directions based on these results are also presented.
