The People's Scientist


Is it Social Anxiety or Introversion?

Season 1, Ep. 132

In Episode 132 of The People's Scientist podcast, I talk about how Scientists speculate that the prevalence of social anxiety has increased in the last several years. I offer an alternative, that in part, these observations may be explained by us having the opportunity to be more introverted over the pandemic. So is it introversion or social anxiety? I talk about the neuroscience, diagnostic criteria, and treatment strategies for social anxiety disorder.
