As a recovering socialphobe, I have been researching social anxiety and bullying. One thing that caught my attention was reading that people with social anxiety perceive that they are being treated poorly even if they are not…like we are looking for negative intentions from others… but I also just read an article that states the socially anxious can pick out angry faces in a crowd much faster than the non-anxious around us.
