This study examined the serial multiple mediator roles of the fear of negative evaluation and academic perfectionism on the relation between cognitive flexibility and mental well-being in a sample of Turkish university students. A total of 320 students [162 (50.6%) female and 158 (49.4%) male, M age = 20.37; SD = 2.05] in two separate public universities were involved in this study. The Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-Being Scale, the Cognitive Flexibility Inventory, the Brief Fear of Negative Evaluation Scale, and the Academic Perfectionism Scale were used to obtain the data. We investigated the serial multiple mediations roles by using bootstrapping based PROCESS macro (Model 6). The results revealed that significant relationships between the variables. Moreover, the findings indicated that fear of negative evaluation and academic perfectionism subsequently and partially mediated the relation between cognitive flexibility and mental well-being. Implications for the research’s results are discussed and recommendations for future direction are offered.

Bu çalışmada Türk üniversite öğrencilerinin bilişsel esneklik düzeyleri ile mental iyi oluşları arasında olumsuz değerlendirilme korkusu ve akademik mükemmeliyetçiliğin sırasal çoklu aracılığı incelenmiştir. İki farklı devlet üniversitesinde öğrenim gören toplamda 320 [162 (%50.6) kadın ve 158 (%49.4) erkek, Yaş ort = 20.37, ss = 2.05] öğrenci çalışmaya dahil olmuştur. Warwick-Edinburgh Mental İyi Oluş Ölçeği, Bilişsel Esneklik Envanteri, Olumsuz Değerlendirilme Korkusu Ölçeği Kısa Formu ve Akademik Mükemmeliyetçilik Ölçeği verilerin elde edilmesinde kullanılmıştır. Çalışmada incelenen sırasal çoklu aracılık rol PROCESS makrosuna (Model 6) dayalı bootstrapping tekniği ile ele alınmıştır. Araştırmanın sonuçlara göre çalışmanın değişkenleri olan bilişsel esneklik, mental iyi oluş, olumsuz değerlendirilme korkusu ve akademik mükemmeliyetçiliğin birbirleriyle anlamlı ilişkiye sahip oldukları görülmüştür. Bununla birlikte çalışmanın bulgularına göre olumsuz değerlendirilme korkusu ile akademik mükemmeliyetçiliğin bilişsel esneklik ve mental iyi oluş ilişkisinde sırasal ve kısmi aracı rolünü ortaya çıkartmıştır. Çalışmanın bulgularından ortaya çıkan doğurgular tartışılarak ve gelecek çalışmalara yönelik önerilere yer verilmiştir.
