Abstract
Cilj istraživanja bio je ispitati učestalost rizičnog ponašanja i sklonosti prejedanju te utvrditi jesu li impulzivnost i uzbuđenje uslijed pozitivnog raspoloženja prediktori i rizičnog ponašanja i sklonosti prejedanja kod studenata. Istraživanje je provedeno na N=326 sudionika koji su ispunili Ljestvicu prejedanja, Ljestvicu rizičnog ponašanja, Barrattovu ljestvicu impulzivnosti, Mjeru uzbuđenja uslijed pozitivnog raspoloženja i Ljestvicu reagiranja na određene emocije. Podaci su prikupljeni pomoću online upitnika izrađenog na "Qualtrics Survey Software" koji je proslijeđen sudionicima preko društvenih mreža i foruma. Rezultati istraživanja pokazuju da se sudionici rijetko upuštaju u rizična ponašanja, dok su impulzivnost, uzbuđenje uslijed pozitivnog raspoloženja i prejedanje niske. Model od tri bloka prediktora (spol i dob; impulzivnost i uzbuđenje uslijed pozitivnog raspoloženja; sklonost prejedanju) objašnjava 13,6% varijance rizičnog ponašanja. Statistički značajni prediktori rizičnog ponašanja su impulzivnost i uzbuđenje uslijed pozitivnog raspoloženja. Model od četiri bloka (spol i dob; impulzivnost i uzbuđenje uslijed pozitivnog raspoloženja; emocionalno potaknuto jedenje - potaknuto nervozom, tugom, usamljenošću i umorom; učestalost rizičnog ponašanja) objašnjava 43,7% varijance prejedanja. Statistički značajni prediktori prejedanja su emocionalno potaknuto jedenje potaknuto nervozom, tugom, usamljenošću i umorom te uzbuđenje uslijed pozitivnog raspoloženja. Ovakvi rezultati su djelomično u skladu s očekivanjima.

Parallel abstract (English)
The aim of the study was to determine frequency of risky behaviour and binge eating among students and to determine whether impulsivity and positive urgency are predictors of risky behaviour and binge eating among students. The study was contucted on 326 participants which completed measures of Binge eating scale (BES), Risky behaviour measure, Barratt impulsivity scale (BIS), Positive urgency measure (PUM) and Measure of reaction to emotions. Data was collected through online survey formed on "Qualtrics Survey Software" which was forwarded to participants through social networks and forums. The results of this study indicate that students engage rarely in risky behaviour, while the result on impulsivity, positive urgency and binge eating is below average. Analyses show that three steps predictors model (gender and age; impulsivity and positive urgency; binge eating) explains 13,6% of risky behaviour variance. Impulsivity and positive urgency are significant predictors of risky behaviour. Additionally, analyses show that four steps predictors model (gender and age: impulsivity and positive urgency; emotional eating - driven by nervousness, sadness, loneliness and tiredness; risky behaviour) explains 43,7% of binge eating variance. Emotional eating driven by nervousness, sadness, loneliness, tiredness and positive urgency are significant predictors of binge eating. These findings are partly in accordance with expectations.
