Abstract

Introduction: The aim of this research was to study the predictive model of symptoms of social anxiety based on behavioral inhibition and cognitive factors. The research hypothesis is that behavioral inhibition, as a temperamental factor, along with cognitive factors lead to social anxiety symptoms.  Materials and Methods: This is a cross-sectional study (2012-13). Number of 408 students were selected through random sampling. They completed the following questionnaires: Social Phobia Inventory (SPIN), Behavioral Inhibition Scales (AMBI and RMBI), Focus of Attention Questionnaire (FAQ), and Consequences of Negative Social Events Questionnaire (CNSEQ). Data were analyzed through multiple regression method by SPSS software version 16.   Results: All of the variables were correlated with social anxiety significantly (P<0.05). Behavioral inhibition and cognitive factors have a significant effect on the development social anxiety. Also, the predictive model that behavioral inhibition along with cognitive factors creates social anxiety is confirmed.  Conclusion: These results may be used as a tool for screening and prediction of social anxiety in students. Also, according to the effect of cognitive factors on the development of social anxiety, we can train the children in cognitive skills in order to prevent social anxiety. In addition, we can use these skills in treatment.
