Data gathering tools were two standard questionnaires: Connor social phobia (2000) and Paterson job performance (1970).We analyzed data by descriptive statistics (includes: frequency and percentage) and inferential statistics (includes: Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regression), with using SPSS software. Results showed that there is a significant negative relation between social phobia and its components with job performance. Also, social phobia components (avoidance, fear and physiologic problem, respectively) were some significant predictors for job performance. This study is a comprehensive understanding about social phobia disorder and its importance on job performance, and also it can be a basis for future research.
