Precarious Future As A Source Of Increased Personal Anxiety


The article reflects upon an individual’s precarious future, feeling fenced in a situation of uncertainty. A significant aspect of the studied problems is the fact that a person is not always ready to change in a situation of uncertainty and transformation of the habitual space of life activity. The theoretical aspect determines the main sources of increasing anxiety of an individual if he/she feels a precarious future. The pilot study explores the decreased activity vectors that increase personality anxiety. The Manifest Anxiety Scale, which is designed to investigate the level of personality anxiety manifestation, is used in the study to examine the representation of this condition in the sample. A survey method is methodologically proved by the theory of transactional analysis and aimed at exploring constraint vectors of activity. The findings of the sample respondents were analyzed in terms of anxiety severity with decreasing activity constraint vectors that cause increased anxiety. The pilot study finds out that in the sample anxiety increases if there is a decrease in the social activity vector, as well as a decrease in the activity vector responsible for structuring time and space. Subsequently, the (pre)disposition of the individual’s acceptance of uncertainty contributes to the acceptance of the multiple changes and the multivariate nature of actions possible under these changes. The outcomes of the pilot study presented in the article determine the fact that a personality’s ability to be different is an important state of being under ambiguity
