Social phobia is a disorder very common among the population. According to some studies, it appears that women suffer more than men. The main feature of social phobia is the fear of acting in front of others, in an embarrassing or humiliating, and receiving negative reviews. This fear can lead the sufferer to avoid most social situations for fear of behaving in a "wrong" and to be misjudged. Usually, the situations most feared by those suffering from social phobia are those that involve the need to do something before other people, such as exposing a relationship or just sign up, call or eat can sometimes create anxiety just walk into a room where there are people already seated, or talk with your friend. People who suffer from social phobia are afraid of appearing anxious and show the "signs", i.e. fear of becoming red-faced, trembling, stuttering, sweating, having palpitations, or to remain silent, unable to speak the other, without the joke "ready". Finally, it often happens that those who suffer, when there is a feared situation, recognize their fear as unreasonable and tend, therefore, to accuse and self-reproach for not being able to do things that everyone does. Social phobia, if untreated, tends to remain stable and chronic, and often can lead to other disorders such as depression.
