Behavioral Inhibition and the Attribution of Public Speaking Anxiety.
Freeman, Terri; And Others
Communication Education, v46 n3 p175-87 Jul 1997
Applies H.J. Eysenck's theoretical perspective on the development of anxiety to explain audience perceptions of public speakers--specifically the effects of social conditioning, particularly punishment, and the relative conditionability of an individual's nervous system combine to predict behavioral responses to state anxiety. Finds that behavioral rigidity and inhibition are significant, additive predictors of audience-perceived speaker state anxiety. (SR)
