Example text

One perspective, espoused by one of 17 Chapter 1 the authors of this book (see Zeidner, 1998), supposes that the response was undoubtedly adaptive to our hominid ancestors living in the savannas of Africa, but may be less so in modern times. It is not helpful in an exam or job interview to experience muscle tension, faintness, or sweating—somatic symptoms that may even distract the candidate from the task at hand. On the other hand, as previously indicated, even for early humans, threat may perhaps have been as likely to be social as derived from predators and other threats requiring immediate escape.

From this perspective, the essence of social anxiety is that the person is motivated to make a favorable impression on others, but fears that he or she will be found to be deficient or inadequate by others and therefore will be rejected (Leary, 2001). By contrast, Crozier and Alden (2001) indicate that some forms of social anxiety, such as fear of strangers or of exchanging pleasantries with the salesperson or bus driver, are not evaluative in nature. Psychometric studies have found distinct traits related to anxieties concerning evaluation, separation from significant others and self-disclosure (Endler, 2002).

Anxiety may not be rigidly related to any specific behavior. Furthermore, recent work on the biological bases of emotion (Corr & Perkins, 2006) points to the need to distinguish fear and anxiety behaviors. These authors suggest that fear and anxiety are actually controlled by separate brain systems. Fear is generated by a fight-flight-freeze system that tends to produce classic defensive behaviors such as escape, depending on the organism’s proximity to danger. Anxiety is a product of a separate system, the behavioral inhibition system (BIS), whose operations are more subtle.
