Glossophobia or speech anxiety is the fear of public speaking.

 

◦The aspect of speaking publicly whether it be in front of a group of unknown people, or a close group of friends, is what triggers the anxiety for the speaker. 

◦ Public speaking anxiety arises from the student's fear of embarrassment in front of a crowd of people in an unfamiliar situation. Students have a fear of making mistakes or messing up or just being judged in general by their audience. The anxiety that students have of speaking publicly sometimes stems from a previous experience that ended with them making a mistake or being judged by their audience or their audience not being as interested in the topic as the speaker thought they would be.

It has been estimated that 75% of all people experience some degree of anxiety/nervousness when it comes to public speaking
