anonymous asked:

Can you explain more about scopophobia? I'm still a little confused.

Its the fear/phobia of being looked at (direct eye contact). This is why you may see people tagging their pictures with it (where they are making eye contact).

People who suffer with scopophobia may avoid going into crowded public places because they fear they are being constantly looked at by everyone and this can be quite stressful.

Some symptoms people may feel when having this are:

  • Feeling of panic, panic and or dread 
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea
  • Dry mouth
  • Trembling
  • Anxiety
