Objectives: The purpose of the present research was explaining the anger in people with social anxiety based on their impulsivity and risk perception, considering this atypical pattern.
Methods:. The present study is a cross sectional one. The research population includes all students of Arak University in which 450 individuals were selected based on convenience sampling. Firstly, the Social Phobia Inventory, Dickman Impulsivity Inventory, Risk Perception Scale, and Novaco Anger Scale were performed for them. Then, based on their scores in social anxiety, 124 individuals whose scores were 19 to above were selected as the final sample.
Results: Simultaneous multiple regression indicated that impulsivity and risk perception predict 36 percent of the variance of anger in individuals with social anxiety F(2, 121)= 33.70, p< 0.001), in which impulsivity directly (Beta= 0.423) and risk perception inversely (Beta= -0.297) had a significant contribution in predicting their anger.
Conclusion: It is necessary to pay serious attention to impulsivity and risk perception in understanding and treating the individuals with social anxiety and their anger.
