Social Anxiety May Be Associated with High IQ and Empathetic Ability | politics |
Various studies have found a link between social anxiety and high emotional intelligence, empathetic ability and IQ levels


A further study from the SUNY Downstate Medical Centre in NYC stated that those participants taking part in an IQ test who suffered from severe anxiety actually scored higher than those who didn’t have anxiety.

Furthermore, when tested, people who suffer from social anxiety were found to exhibit prominent empathetic abilities, meaning they have greater psycho-social awareness than their counterparts.
