Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Quite by chance a moment ago, while reading Richard Wilkinson's The Impact of Inequality (book that I must have recommended to a number of people during the meet), I came across this, p.95 :

...social anxiety, sometimes called social evaluation anxiety. Work on social anxiety links our proneness to feeling shy, and our fear of social evaluation and embarrassment to a wider range of psychological concepts such as fear of negative evaluation, social-evaluative disorder, behavioral inhibition, fear of failure, approval motivation, self-conscious affect, interpersonal competence, self-presentational predicament, sense of inferiority, and inferiority complex, to name but... [wait for it...] a few.

I'm tired of having fingers pointed at me. Is this a case of social anxiety, Doc?
