It also aimed to investigate adolescent views on anxiety. In the present study, method triangulation was employed due to the collection of quantitative and qualitative data. The study group included 426 adolescents attending high schools in Adıyaman province in Southeastern Anatolia Region in Turkey. The quantitative study group included 426 adolescents, 218 of whom were female and 206 were male. The qualitative study group included 20 adolescents, 11 of whom were female and 9 were male. Finding of the study was the acquisition of six regression models that predicted the state anxiety levels of the adolescents. It was observed that the optimistic approach, a Stress Coping Scale dimension, explained 18% of the variation in state anxiety, and the inclusion of the search for social support, another Stress Coping Styles Scale, in the analysis increased the prediction power to 24%, while the inclusion of the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale in the analysis increased it to 28%, and the addition of the submissive approach increased it to 30% in the fourth stage of the analysis. The addition of the self-confident approach, a Stress Coping Scale dimension, to the analysis led to an explanation power of 30%, and finally, the addition of the helpless approach increased the predictive power to 31%, and it was determined that the regression model was significant. The qualitative study findings demonstrated that the reactions of the adolescents to anxiety could be categorized under the cognitive, emotional, physical and behavioral themes. Another qualitative finding of the study based on the views of the adolescents was that they associated anxiety with academic, personal, social and developmental dimensions. The current study findings revealed that the dimensions that adolescents associated with anxiety were personal, social and developmental domains. In conclusion, it could be suggested that state anxiety is an important variable in the identity development of adolescents.
