7 Types of Fear
7 Types of Fear – Introduction Former U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt once said in a speech, “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.” If you take the statement literally, it doesn’t really make sense because you can’t really be afraid of fear.
What Roosevelt was trying to say is that fear is a crippling emotion that can hold back nations and individuals from achieving greatness. In that sense, the consequences of fear can be terrifying.
Good fear vs. bad fear
Fear is a strong emotion, an instinctive reaction that we’re endowed with to ensure the survival of our species. It’s also a primeval instinct that we see in animals as well.
As human civilizations became more complex and advanced, so did our fears become more varied and compounded. The caveman in prehistoric times wasn’t worrying about the financial risks of taking out a second mortgage or making a career change. His primary goal revolved around one thing -survival.
Our current fears stem from the same core instinct but in comparison to our earliest ancestors, are much less of a threat. Oftentimes, rather than help us survive in the modern world, they hinder our ability to lead our best possible lives.
