Summary/Abstract: In adolescence, there are significant changes in behavior, which are largely determined by personality traits and perceptions which adolescents have about themselves. The main objective of this study was to determine the relationship between basic personality dimensions of Eysenck model and certain aspects of self-concept among high school students. The sample consisted of 200 students in the second and fourth year of high school. The research results confirm the existence of significant correlation between all three investigated dimensions of personality and certain aspects of self-concept in adolescence. Thus, it was determined that neuroticism is positively associated with fear of negative evaluation, externality and low social desirability and negatively with loneliness. Extraversion is positively related to persistence, self-esteem and general life satisfaction, and negatively with the perceived incompetence, loneliness, fear of negative evaluation and externality, and low psychoticism is positively associated with persistence, self-esteem and general satisfaction, and negatively with the perceived incompetence and loneliness.
