Background and Objectives: Social Appearance Anxiety refers to social anxiety, especially general appearance, including body shape and the fear of being evaluated by others. The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of self-criticism and shyness in predicting social appearance anxiety of female students in Rasht.
Materials and Methods: The research was descriptive-correlational and the statistical population included all female students in Rasht. A total of 120 subjects were selected using this method and then tested with Lewis Self-Critical Questionnaire, Social Appearance Anxiety Questionnaire and Chick-Briggs Shyness Questionnaire.
Results: The results showed that there was a significant difference between social appearance anxiety and internalized self-critical component (r =0.30> P<0.01), and with social appearance and self-critical component anxiety (r =0.19> P<0.01). There was a significant positive relationship with the whole self-criticism scale (r = 0.32; P <0.01). Also, there was no significant relationship between shyness variables with any of social appearance anxiety variables. 15% of the total variance of social appearance anxiety is explained by self-criticism and its components. Also, 3% of the total variance of social appearance anxiety is explained by shyness components.
Conclusions: Given that social appearance anxiety variable has not been worked with any other variables in Iran so far, this study has little background. It is suggested in future research that this important construct of psychology be studied with other psychological components.
