Social Anxiety disorder also known as social phobia is a disorder where an individual fears that being exposed to a social situation with people he/she does not know will leave the individual embarrassed or closely examined. Occurring in 6.8% of the population the disorder is equally common among men and women ( Anxiety Disorder Association of America). The symptoms can range from normal levels of fear manifested as sweating or difficulty in speaking to a panic attack at extreme levels of intensity.
The panic attack however will only be caused if the individual is in a public place. The phobia may not only be related a fear to being humiliated in front of people. It may also be due to a specific event in the subject’s history, manifesting when a person has to perform in public (Simon).
