AbstractThis research constitutes an initial effort to examine the relationship between study addiction, which is a newly conceptualized behavioural addiction, study engagement and type-A personality (TAP) linked to increased cardiovascular isk. Bergen Study Addic-tion Scale, Utrecht Work Engagement Scale-Student, and The Framingham Type-A Scale were used for this purpose. A total of 127 Polish students participated in the study. Study addiction was positively related to all components of study engagement and type-A personality traits. However, study engagement was not positively related to TAP traits when study addiction was controlled. The results provide further evidence that study addiction is a different construct than study engagement, and suggest that it is crucial to control study addiction whenever study engagement is being analysed.
