#94 When social phobia becomes ‘popular’ in China… 当越来越多中国人开始社恐

大家好!欢迎回来MaoMi Chinese!

你会怎么样形容自己的性格呢?你觉得自己是一个外向的人,还是一个内向的人?你喜欢认识新的朋友吗?还是你更喜欢独处呢?对于这一个问题,很多的中国年轻人给出了同一个答案:我社恐。 在中国的网络上,“社恐”渐渐成为了一个网络的流行语,也成为了一个标签。今天,我们一起来聊一聊“社恐”吧!

如果你被一只老虎咬了,你会求救吗?对于这个问题,中国网络上有一个流行的答案:“不会。因为如果没有人救,我只是可能会死;可一旦有人来救,我还得跟他打招呼。” 这是一个中国的脱口秀演员说的一个笑话,但是非常多的年轻人都赞同。他们宁愿被老虎咬死,也不愿意和别人打招呼。越来越多的人年轻人说,他们社恐。社恐,来自“社交恐惧症”。如果一个人说他有社恐,他的意思是,他很害怕和人聊天和相处,他只想一个人。

有人调查了中国16岁到29岁的人,发现百分之三十二的人都有社交恐惧症。为什么越来越多的中国年轻人有社恐呢?我认为有两个原因。第一个原因,社交媒体非常流行,社交媒体甚至主导着年轻人的日常生活。虽然人们在社交媒体上可以随时聊天,但是很少面对面聊天,所以,当真正和人相处的时候,很多人都觉得很尴尬,不知道应该说什么,做什么。一些中国学生说,他们周一到周五都在学校学习,每到周末就待在家里。虽然他们在线上很健谈,但是线下和人聊天就很害羞。他们说,因为在网上和人聊天更安全,至少别人看不到自己。

第二个原因,是中国才有的原因。现在的很多年轻人是家里唯一的孩子,因为他们出生的时候有独生子女政策,一对父母只能有一个孩子。因此,他们没有兄弟姐妹可以一起玩。也因为是唯一的孩子,他们的父母对他们的期望很高,所以他们花更多的时间学习,很少有时间认识新朋友。到了他们需要社交的时候,他们就会觉得非常难,这些社交也会给他们很大的压力。

说实话,我觉得有一点社恐是正常的,我们都有想要自己一个人、不想和别人说话的时候。你怎么看?欢迎在评论区给我们留言哦!

 

Hello everyone! Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese!

How would you describe your personality? Do you consider yourself an extrovert, or an introvert? Do you like meeting new people? Or do you prefer to be alone? To this question, many Chinese young people gave the same answer: We have social phobia. On the Internet in China, "social phobia" has gradually become an Internet buzzword and a label. Today, let's talk about "social phobia" !

If you were caught by a tiger, would you call for help? For this question, there is a popular answer on the Chinese Internet: "No. Because if no one saves me, I may die; but once someone comes to save me, I have to say hello to him." This is a joke told by a Chinese talk show actor, but a lot of young people agree with that. They would rather be killed by a tiger than greet others. More and more young people say they are socially phobic. 社恐 comes from "social phobia". If a person says that he has social phobia, what he means is that he is very afraid of chatting and getting along with people, and he only wants to be alone.

Someone surveyed Chinese people aged 16 to 29 and found that 32% of them have social phobia. Why do more and more Chinese young people have social fear? I think there are two reasons. The first reason is that social media is very popular and even dominates the daily life of young people. Although people can chat at any time on social media, they rarely chat face to face, so when it comes to actually getting along with people, many people feel awkward and don't know what to say or do. Some Chinese students say that they study at school from Mondays to Fridays and stay at home on weekends. Although they can be chatty online, they are shy when talking to people offline. They say that because it is safer to chat with people online, at least others cannot see themselves.

The second reason is unique to China. Many young people nowadays are the only children in their families, because they were born under the one-child policy, where one couple can only have one child. Therefore, they have no siblings to play with. Also being the only child, their parents have high expectations on them, so they spend more time studying and less time meeting new friends. When they need to socialize, they find it very difficult, and these social interactions will also give them a lot of pressure.

To be honest, I think it's normal to have a little bit of social anxiety, we all have times when we just want to be alone and don't want to talk to other people. What do you think? Welcome to leave us a comment!
