Hi there!

Thanks for taking the time to check out this post. To introduce myself briefly, my name’s Jeremy and I’m doing my PhD research in social anxiety. I’m really hoping you can help me by doing an online survey. Here’s the info:

What is the study about?
I’m trying to investigate the maintenance factors of social anxiety.

Why is that important?
The more we can understand what maintains social anxiety, the better we can create interventions to treat social anxiety.

Who can do the survey?
Anyone 18 years and older.

How long will it take?
Most people have been taking between 15-30 minutes.

What else do I need to know?
For those who are interested, you can also complete the survey in 3 and 6 months’ time. This is because I’m trying to do a longitudinal study. However, if you only want to participate once, that’s fine. More information can be found in the actual survey.

Please follow this link if you wish to participate:

Thankyou. I really hope my research can expand our knowledge on the issue of social anxiety, and provide us with ideas of how to make treatment even better

p.s. feel free to share the survey with friends if you get a moment!

Hey! Thanks for this! Participating in this survey was somewhat cathartic. As my main issue is not with establishing relationships, but with maintaining them, I feel as though I may not be the typical group you were hoping to survey, but oh well. I hope you got enough participants!

If you need anything else, or are hoping to learn more, I'm happy to participate further!

zharl thanks so much for your comments and thoughts. Trust me, there is no typical group I'm looking at for this study, just humans who are at least 18 years old haha. I'm really glad to hear that doing the survey was cathartic for you. I've had a few similar comments like this actually. I've had some people mention that they didn't even realise they were doing certain behaviours that were maintaining their social anxiety and seeing them in the survey highlighted this to them.

Zharl it sounds like you have a really good grasp on what is holding you back from getting more out of life (maintaining rather than establishing relationships). This is definitely to be commended!

Thanks for completing the survey

Hoppy thanks for your comment. I think life is an entire process of change, it's almost our duty to keep trying to change things and ourselves for the better! noone is perfect.

I did the survey. I think that some of the questions weren't clear or didn't make sense. I'm specifically talking about the ones using the verb "to be" for identity and predication, including the ever-clear "be yourself" construct.

Hi Arjuna. Firstly, thanks so much for completing the survey, I really appreciate it. I agree that some questions are fairly ambivalent and not too clear. Unfortunately, it's difficult to make drastic changes because we need to keep most of them the same in order to make comparisons with previous research that has used the same standardized questionnaires. My hope is that, regardless of some ambivalence in the questions, I will still be able to extract findings that will increase our knowledge about social anxiety.

Thanks for your feedback and hope you're well

Found myself resonating alot with that survey. Look forward to the results (assume will be sent by email) and hope they will be concise and easy to read rather than a big essay.

Hey guys! After doing a few analyses, I've realised I still need lots more responses!! So if you get a chance, it would be great if you could partake - average duration is 22 minutes

Here is the link!
