Performance anxiety refers to a fear or anxiety that occurs in performance situations or when a person is the central focus of an event. Performance anxiety can affect people in a wide range of situations – actors, sportspeople, or others who perform as a part of their job can experience performance anxiety, as can people planning to give a toast at a wedding or a presentation at work. Performance anxiety often includes both psychological symptoms and physiological ones, such as shortness of breath. It can occur on its own, in the form of a panic attack, or as a symptom of a broader anxiety disorder.
