This is the VOA Special English Health Report.

Imagine this situation. You pass a group of people. The people are to each other. You cannot hear what they are saying. But suddenly they start laughing. What would you think? Would you think they were laughing something funny that one of them said? Or -- be honest with yourself -- would you think they were laughing you? Yes, you.

Being laughed at is a common . But a major study published in two thousand nine found that this fear is not the same around the world. It differs from culture to culture.

People in Finland were the least likely to believe that people laughing in their presence were making of them. Less than percent of Finns in the study said they would think that, compared to percent of people in Thailand.

Some people in the study said they felt of themselves in social situations but hid their feelings of insecurity. Others said they avoided social situations where they had been laughed at before.

The study found that people in Turkmenistan and Cambodia were more likely to be in the first group. They would hide their feelings of if they were around other people's laughter. But people in Iraq, Egypt and Jordan were more likely to try to avoid such situations if they felt they had been laughed at before.

Shy people often avoid situations that would force them into close with other people. They worry that something they say or do will make other people laugh at them. But some people worry much more than others. They may have a called gelotophobia. Gelos is a Greek word. It means laughter. Phobia means fear. This fear of laughter can be truly sad for those who live with it. It can affect how they lead their lives.

In the study, a team from the University of Zurich led more than researchers from around the world. They wanted to understand the difference between normal shyness and true gelotophobia. Another purpose of the study was to compare the levels of fear of being laughed at in different cultures. The researchers surveyed more than twenty-two thousand people in different languages. The findings appeared in the scientific journal Humor.

And that's the VOA Special English Health Report. Is shyness a serious problem for you or someone you know? It was for a university student who asked people in our audience for advice on how to deal with it.

That's curious!
SandwichThe word sandwich comes from the English diplomat John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich. He was such a compulsive gambler that to avoid stopping the game to eat, he would order that this kind of food was brought to his table so as not to waste too much time.
