- Psychological experience dynamics, glossophobia, narrative counseling, and gender.
Psychological experience can lead to the fear of speech anxiety (glossophobia). A number of studies explain that 75% people in the world have suffered glossophobia. The studies also revealed that, compared with men, women have higher tendency to experience glossophobia. The aim of the present study was investigating psychological experience dynamics and the role of gender that influence the emergence of glossophobia through narrative counseling. The data were collected qualitatively through observation and depth interview on five students of Public Senior High School 13 Surabaya. Furthermore, the data were analyzed thematically on three components of psychological experience dynamics: fear, anxiety, and negative thinking. The results of the analysis showed that most of the students are afraid to be laughed and humiliated. They are also anxious of past bad experience that would be repeated when speaking in public place. Moreover, excessive affection and cognitive responses of the female students are the trigger of experiencing glossophobia. Based on the interpretation, it can be concluded that misinterpretation of psychological experience and low-self-control of the students are able to determine glossophobia easily.
