Personality and stage fright apprehension are important factors that contribute towards teaching effectiveness. Individuals who are highly confident of themselves can control their level of stage fright apprehension when delivering speech in public. An exploratory study has been carried out to examine the level of stage fright and shyness according to gender, age, schools, workload and personality factors. It utilized the Personal Report of Communication Apprehension (PRCA-24), Shyness Test (Cheek, 1989) and the NEO-FFI (Neo Five Factor Inventory) as instruments to measure stage fright, shyness and personality elements. Data collected was analyzed using SPSS Win 10 and presented using descriptive and inferential statistics. Results indicated that there are different effects of gender, age, schools, workload and personality factors on stage fright and shyness among UUM lecturers. Overall, gender is a good predictor in determining stage fright apprehension among the respondents. Therefore, it makes a difference from gender perspective when individuals respond towards public speaking in educational context.
