Languages of publication
The aim of this research is to verify the relationship between the concept of God, selected personality characteristics and university students' quality of life and to determine the strength of their prediction in relation to the examined construct. The sample is 199 university students who participated in the survey. The concept of God was measured by using the ´Emotions towards God´ and ´Images of God´ (Petersen, 1993) questionnaires; the selected personal characteristics (extraversion, neuroticism) by using the scales of the NEO-FFI questionnaire (Ruisel, Halama, 2007), and quality of life was surveyed by the ´Subjective assessment of quality of life questionnaire (Džuka, 2014). The results of regression analysis showed that the highest predictive power of personality characteristic is extraversion which explained 45-71% of variance of the psychosocial, environmental and physical domain of the quality of life. This with the exception of the cognitive domain in which the highest percent of variance (65%) is represented by emotions towards God experienced as closeness/security. This variable participated in the variance of the other domains with 2-5%. The other predictors with the prediction power of 1-5% were: gender, housing, age, emotions towards God such as fear/guilt and unfavourable feelings, and also images of God as a mystical and distant/abstract entity.
