Purpose: To determine the mediating role of personality types in the effect of anxiety and depression on job performance in the Covid-19 pandemic. Design and Methods: This research was conducted in a descriptive type. Research data were collected from 325 participants between January and February 2021. The participants of this study were 325 health professionals selected by simple random method. The data of this study were collected from three standard scales. The data obtained from the questionnaire applied in this study were analyzed in SPSS for Windows 25.00 program and AMOS 24.0 program. Findings: Anxiety and depression did not significantly affect job performance (?= ,095; p>,05). Personality traits (except Intellect personality type) decrease job performance (JP) as measured by the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) variable, but it was found that with an indirect effect, Extraversion (E) (?=-,061; p<0,05), Neuroticism (N) (?=-,110; p<0,05), Agreeableness (A) (?=- ,061; p<0,05) and Conscientiousness (C) (?=-,046; p<0,05) caused a decrease in work performance by inversely affecting them through the personality types. Cronbach's Alpha values were found to be high reliability. Conclusion: This study is important in terms of obtaining informative and guiding results for health workers and managers in terms of the mediating role of personality traits in stress and performance management during the COVID-19 pandemic and taking into account personality traits in relation to the differences in changing working conditions in health workers.
