Fear of Public Speaking Links
The fear of public speaking may be Shyness or an expression of Social Anxiety Disorder / Social Phobia. It depends of the symptom's intensity and if they are part of other symptoms of social contact avoidance. For example, if the person’s hands trembles slightly when he needs to speak in front of any group, small or great, and if he wants to speak, and, also, if the trembling goes on all the time or disappears during the course of the speaking, then this is an expression of Shyness. However, if the trembling is intense, if the person doesn't want to speak, if he avoids social contacts every time due to fear, then this is an expression of social anxiety disorder. If the fear has panic's features, then there is no doubt this is Social Anxiety Disorder / Social Phobia.
A very common situation is that in which the person has no difficulty with social contacts or feels only mild anxiety, even in groups, but, if he needs to speak formally to these people in a group, he experiences a mental block and doesn't speak anything. This is Shyness.
