The fear of public speaking is a performative fear. It often emerges when someone overestimates the stakes of communicating their ideas in front of others, fearing they might be scrutinised and potentially lose their credibility and image in front of the audience. While it isn’t unusual to feel anxious or uncomfortable in situations where a person is likely to be the center of attention, in activities like public speaking, some accounts of glossophobia can be severe enough to negatively affect a person’s life. It limits social interactions and interpersonal opportunities, making navigating society and relationships difficult. While public speaking phobia may not result in chronic physical health conditions, its anxiety symptoms can decrease a person’s quality of life. From feeling a general dissatisfaction to developing avoidance tendencies when it comes to group interaction, it may hinder you from achieving the professional or personal goals you desire. It’s why taking a proactive approach to deal with your public speaking phobia is recommended.
