Fear of approaching groups of people

Do you fear approaching groups of people?
Do you prefer not to ask about something you want to know not to approach a group of people?
Do you feel self conscious when approaching a group of people that you don’t know well?

Why do you fear approaching groups of people

There is no myth behind the fear of approaching groups of people. Either lack of self confidence or inferiority complex could be the main reason for your fear of approaching groups.

When you approach the groups and put much emphasis on how are they going to judge you then you will certainly feel self conscious and afraid. Again putting much weight to what people will think of you may be rooted to inferiority feelings or lack of self confidence.

According to another theory if a person believed that he is defective in any way then probably he will want to isolate himself in his private circle because he won't want others to discover the truth about his in-adequateness.

Some people think that shyness is one of the reasons some people fear interacting with others and that's right. But shyness itself is usually caused by one ore more underlying factors that require attention such as low self esteem.

Self-consciousness is another factor that forces people to fear others. When a person feels self conscious he becomes overly obsessed with himself that he becomes self-inhibited in the presence of others. This self inhibition puts a load on the brain, forces the person to become stressed and as a result makes it very easy for him to become anxious or scared.

how to get over the fear of approaching groups of people?

Do you wonder why do you fear groups of people while you experience much less fear when approaching one person?

Simply because you deal with the group as if it was a one person. You think that all of the people in that group will think of you in the same way, judge you in the same way or even have the same thoughts about you.

In Fact each one of those people have got his own unique thoughts, yes they may like one entity from the outside but underneath that scary appearance everyone is living in his own world. Each group member has his own belief system and each one of them will form a different impression of you than others.

If you were able to read their minds you may find that one of them actually feared you, the other may have thought of you as a nice or respectable person while the third may have not gave any attention to you at all!!

i invented this technique and called it the group separation technique. Don’t think of groups as one unit but think of them as different people standing together and you will not fear them anymore.

The second and the very important thing you must do is to find the root cause of your self-inhibited behaviour. Do you suffer from shyness? Is it an inferiority problem? Do you lack self esteem?

In fact all of those bad feelings you are experiencing might be no more than a warning from your subconscious mind to you. Your subconscious mind in such a case just wants you to solve the problem no matter what it is.

This is why avoiding people when you fear them is the worst thing you can do. Fix the root cause and this problem will disappear.
