The fear of public speaking, or glossophobia, is a common anxiety disorder that can have a significant impact on an individual's personal and professional life. It often manifests as intense apprehension and nervousness when required to speak in front of an audience, leading to a range of physical and emotional symptoms, such as sweating, trembling, racing heart, and a fear of embarrassment. Glossophobia is often rooted in a fear of judgment, failure, or humiliation, and it can result from past negative experiences or a lack of confidence in one's speaking abilities.
