People have been trying to understand anxiety disorder for centuries

Social Anxiety Disorder was called several things before experts settled on its current name. Hippocrates first described anxiety as shyness in early 400 BCE. Since then, the Greeks coined the term “phobia” and created words associated with specific social phobias relating to being around other people, such as xenophobia or anthropophobia. European psychiatrists and psychologists began studying this disorder more closely in the eighteenth century, although it wasn’t formally recognized as an area of study until the 20th century. Social phobia affects approximately one in ten people and affects people from all ethnic and societal backgrounds. Social anxiety manifests not only in an emotional state but can also present as a physical one.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
