This study examined the psychometric properties and factor structure of the Greek Self-Consciousness Scale (SCS), and investigated the role of self-consciousness (SC), and personality in psychological distress. Factor analytic results partially supported the factor structure of the SCS. Self-consciousness, particularly the Self-reflectiveness aspect of private-SC, was widely implicated in psychological symptomatology. Neuroticism may exacerbate this association, whereas other aspects of personality, such as Openness and Extraversion may buffer the role of SC in distress.
