1.23 EMBARRASSMENT -- PSYCHOLOGY ABUSE TERMS, CONCEPTS

==== Embarrassment

MEANING: A uncomfortable personal feeling caused by people viewing a person doing a socially unacceptable act or being in an unacceptable situation. This feeling can also by caused by having such an act or situation revealed to others.

RELEVANCE TO ABUSE: People have a dread of being embarrassed. Verbal and social abuse often involves embarrassment. The skills of verbal abusers work well in social situations to control others. They can do this either by direct attacks or by threats.

PERSONAL NOTE FROM RICK DOBLE: One study I read stated that people were more afraid of being embarrassed than they were of death. This means that embarrassment is very powerful and that it can be used as a tool to control people.

RELATED WORDS AND PHRASES: modesty, humiliation, shame, honor
