GetParameterAsText() returning only one character in string

Hi, I am a beginner and I have been experimenting with Python module in ArcGIS and I'm trying now to create some kind of automative map. I have set of .lyr files, geodatabase with shapefiles and .csv table with list of names of shapefiles in a row. My goal is to apply symbology to layers based on list picked from .csv table. Shapefiles in geodatabase and .lyr files are named accordingly. When I run hardcoded script, it works just fine. When I use arcpy.GetParameterAsText() troubles begin - the first paremeter dosn't seem to work well at all - it just collects the first character of string that I put in it while using script tool. Do you know, where is the problem?

error log:
