Cognitive Anxiety Overlooked – ADHD and EFD Matter
Two easy ways to consider social anxiety have to do with the thinking involved based on numbers of people and intimacy, having to talk and therefore think. Thinking compromise is common with ADHD, and those with prefrontal cortical slowing, suffering with Executive Function Disorders [EFD] prefer to avoid more thinking when thinking is out of control in the first place.
Social anxiety, more often than not, is a thinking problem associated with cognitive challenges, less emotional or affective, more likely dopamine related, not serotonin. Antidepressants treating serotonin imbalance can, and often do, aggravate social anxiety.
And that context, each size of the crowd can create different perceptions, different social anxiety, thinking, contexts.
