Summary/Abstract: The aim of this study was to explore the role of the personal optimism/ negative expectations, anxiety, and aggressiveness in the process of perceiving the actual and the media portrayed reality. For that purpose a sample of 461 persons was tested and no significant differences were found between the perceptions of these two types of realities. However, there are differences in the perceptions of reality according to the various personal characteristics. On the one hand, the results concerning the aggressiveness are manifold and can be a basis for diverse interpretations. On the other hand, personal pessimism and high anxiety contribute to the formation of mostly negative perceptions of reality.
