What does it feel like to be embarrassed in public?

Your cheeks begins to flush, your heart begins to beat, and you wish you were somewhere else. These sensations of humiliation are universal in human experience, yet despite their universality, they are not pleasant. The feelings of shame and embarrassment are both unpleasant and dangerous because they can lead to social rejection. They also may cause people to do things against their better judgment (such as fight back or run away) in an effort to escape them.

The feeling of embarrassment is a natural reaction by the body to something that violates our internal standards or beliefs. These standards can be religious or cultural and they usually have something to do with modesty or purity. When these standards are violated, we feel ashamed and this emotion leads us to avoid further exposure to the thing that makes us feel ashamed. For example, if someone sees you naked, then you will want them not to see your face when you blush.

There are two types of embarrassment: external and internal. External embarrassment is caused by the presence of other people and depends on how visible you are to others. If you live in a very small town, then anyone who knows you will be able to tell you're embarrassed by your appearance. In such cases, it is best to escape from the situation by leaving home or finding a private place where you won't be seen.

What happens to your body when you are embarrassed?

On the surface, humiliation is obvious: you cover your face, flush, start breathing rapidly, break out in a sweat, and maybe even want to flee. On the inside, it's like an explosion: adrenaline begins to circulate and blood vessels dilate. The heart beats faster and stronger signals are sent to muscles all over the body, telling them to get ready for action.

The more we fear something, the more it affects us. When we are afraid of being humiliated, then that fear comes true. Our bodies react exactly as if we were actually facing an embarrassment situation.

For example, if you think you're not good enough to be hired on a job, then you will never get any interviews. If you believe people will laugh at you if you ask them for the time, then you will feel anxious before going out into public. If you fear you'll be rejected by someone, then you won't go out there and try anything new. Fear has the same effect on everyone else too - they will avoid you or reject you if they see you looking nervous or afraid.

Your body reacts exactly as if you were in a real life situation because it senses danger. So next time you are about to be humiliated, remember that your body is responding as if it was really happening.

What do you feel when you are embarrassed?

Even if you haven't done anything wrong, you may feel strange, picked on, foolish, unattractive, or useless. You may feel unwell or as though you want to weep. It might also make you feel uneasy or concerned. Embarrassment might be a transitory sensation that isn't a huge concern, or it can be an overwhelming feeling that is difficult to deal with. The more important thing is that you know what causes you to feel embarrassed.

Embarrassment is caused by something that has been called an "E-motion". This is when someone experiences some sort of stimulus that makes them feel uncomfortable or ashamed. This can be something that other people do (like public nudity) or something that they say or think (like being caught doing something wrong).

Sometimes embarrassment can be just a normal part of life and there's nothing much you can do about it. For example, if you're at school or work and someone notices that you've got dirt on your face then this would cause you to feel embarrassed. There are times though when this sensation is so strong that it becomes impossible to bear. In these cases you need to find out what is making you feel awkward and try to fix the problem.

If you think that someone else knows that you have done something wrong but they haven't told you yet, then you should probably find out before it gets out anyway. This way you will know how to correct your action or avoid causing further embarrassment in the future.
