Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 385 students (173 males & 212 females) were recruited using a stratified random multi-stage sampling methods. Data were collected using a "Trait Spilberger Anxiety", and "Assertion Inventory" (AI) of Gambrill & Richey. In order to investigate the relationship between two questionnaires, linear regression analysis was used. The significance level in this study was considered to be below 0.05.
Results: The results of study showed that with increasing trait anxiety in students, the mean score of the decisiveness questionnaire was increased, which indicates a reduction of decisiveness in students. In this study, age has a significant positive correlation with the degree of determination in students (p= 0.0001).
Conclusion: Considering the relationship between decisiveness and anxiety and their impact on mental health, academic performance and occupation of students, the special attention of educators and planners towards determining the inhibitors and facilitators of incisive behavior; increasing the efficiency of counseling systems to increase decisiveness and anxiety reduction is essential.
