Stress is becoming more present in people's lives and is often present on daily basis. The way we cope with stress and what kind of consequences will stress have, partially depends on personality traits. Gender roles that person adopts can also explain a part of the variance of coping strategies use, as well as consequences of stressful process. Research objective was to examine if there weresignificant predictors of coping strategies. The sample consisted of N=210 students from Filozofski fakultet, University of Zagreb. Results indicate the existence of a correlation between Big Five model personality traits and coping strategies. Personality traits extraversion, neuroticism, conscientiousness and gender roles of masculinity and femininity significally predicted problem-focused coping. Gender, extraversion, neuroticism and agreableness significally predicted emotion-focused coping. Conscientiousness significally predicted disengagement coping.
