Objective: This study aimed at examining the pattern of the causal relationship of diffused identity and self-efficacy with addiction potential via the mediating role of sense seeking in female students of Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz. Method: The statistical population of this study consisted of the female students of Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz in 2016 and sampling was conducted by random cluster sampling method (300 participants). The following measures were used to evaluate the research variables: Berzonsky Identity Style Inventory-Sixth Grade (1989), Schwartzer & Jerusalem's Generalized Self-Efficacy Scale (1979), Arnett's Sensation Seeking Scale (1994), and Weed & Butcher's Addiction Potential Scale (1989). The proposed model was evaluated using path analysis. Results: The results showed that the proposed model fits the data. In addition, all path coefficients among the variables in the whole sample were statistically significant. Moreover, the direct paths of diffused identity, self-efficacy, and sensation seeking towards addiction potential and sensation seeking were statistically significant. On the other hand, the results showed that the indirect relationship of diffused identity and self-efficacy with addiction potential were also significant through sensation seeking. Conclusion: The findings contain practical implications.
