This paper studies the role of the conceptual models of the policy makers in the quality of prioritizing problems in the agenda setting stage of public policy cycle. Several factors contribute to perceiving problems, presenting clear definitions of them, prioritizing them and then problem setting in the format of agenda for policy makers. However, expecting to examine the theories of enactment and social construction of reality, this study seeks to indicate what effects these theories have on identifying the causes, players and interested groups and the way of using various mechanisms towards convincing, deceiving and imposing something on the society ,etc. It also deals with the question why and how these theories make analyzers of policies and agencies concentrate on some special problems .The research method in this article is analytical-descriptive, in the form of content analysis, adopting Fuzzy approach in its technique of analysis. Analyzing primary data gathered from some public policy scholars, Islamic Consultative Assembly representatives, and auditors of public policies indicated that agencies, individuals and interested groups are seriously affected by structure and context of current literature and sometimes the self-structured one. So in many cases, prioritizing problems is not relevant to the real world but to the subjective attitude of the policy makers.
