why is social anxiety more prevalent than any other psychological ailment in all human groups

Why is social anxiety more prevalent than any other psychological ailment in all human groups?

The big research question

deductive conceptual framework
Deductive conceptual framework

The human brain is designed to be ‘co-opted’ by culture and biology (conclusion based on theoretical and empirical research on gene-culture co-evolution and evolutionary anthropology)

If this is true, then I would expect to find that social anxiety is driven by a mismatch at the level of the individual between cultural social expectations and epigenetically determined perceptions of the social self.

hypothesis
Hypothesis

As the ‘distance’ increases between cultural social expectations and epigenetically determined perceptions of the social self, levels of social anxiety will also increase.

predictor and outcome variables
Predictor and outcome variables

Predictor variable – ‘distance’ is measured using a psychometric instrument for assessing cultural/social expectations (CSE) and epigenetically determined perceptions of the social self (ESS).

Example:

(CSE) How perfectly articulate are you expected to be when you describe your feelings/ideas in “___X____” social context? (scale 1-5, from least articulate to most articulate)

(ESB) In “___X____” social context, how would you rate your ability to be articulate? (scale 1-5; from least articulate to most articulate)

Outcome variable – measured in units of self-reported social anxiety’ using a psychometric instrument

Example: On a scale from lowest to highest, how anxious do you feel after presenting a speech in x social and cultural context (scale: 1 – not anxious at all; 5 – extremely anxious)
