Sensitivity to feedback is an individual psychological variable that plays an important role in the process of self-regulation. It represents the ability of a person to respond to the success of his or her actions and adjust the activity in accordance with the assessment of this success. The purpose of this research was to define the construct of sensitivity to feedback, in particular to develop and validate one-dimensional psychometric scale of sensitivity to feedback diagnostics. The paper presents the results of two studies in which the scale was tested. The sample of the first research includes first-year students of Moscow universities (N = 199). In order to obtain a design validation of the scale, the relationship between sensitivity to feedback and the parameters of psychological wellbeing and motivation is presented. These include types of motivational regulation (autonomous and controlled), flow in educational / professional activities, style of explaining successes and failures, subjective wellbeing, positive and negative affect. The second study investigated more specific relationships between sensitivity to feedback and parameters of self-regulation. The sample includes second- and third-year students of MSU branch in Tashkent (N = 104). The second study provides correlational analysis of the following parameters: control of actions in situations of failure, planning and implementation; scales of a Big Five Questionnaire; the individual’s attitude to the life experience. According to the results, the scale correlated significantly with several measures of psychological wellbeing and self-regulation. Minor corrections of the draft version of the scale (one point has been excluded) indicate the scale consistency and normal distribution of the scores. The research justifies the sensitivity to feedback scale as a useful tool both for fundamental research and applied contexts.

Keywords: self-regulation, feedback, sensitivity to feedback, motivation subjective wellbeing
