The Relationship betweenSocial Anxiety, Parenting Styles and Personality

06 September 2016

The project aims to investigate the relationship among social anxiety, parenting styles and personality in adults with the limited or no specific research on direct relationships between these factors. Hence, this will be an interesting study to investigate if an individual’s social phobia or social anxiety can be predicted from the way parents take care of them. Moreover, it will be fascinating to uncover if a particular personality of a person can predetermine his or her social phobia.
