Eight ‘Typical Behaviors’ People Have When They Suffer From Anxiety

Judging others has become one of the most common behaviors among some people. When we meet people, we quickly make a judgment towards them. It’s undeniable that the first impression is always the biggest impression. Even though we don’t know the person as yet, but we tend to stick to the perception we have made about him/her. When we find a person impolite, we write them off as awful, or just rude.

Many people who suffer from anxiety have aftereffects like rudeness, weirdness etc.  But this behavior is caused by anxiety.
