Abstract [sv]

Social phobia is a fear which limits a person's capabilities in daily situations. The fear can be so strong that a person can distance themselves from all social situations, for example education, marriage, sports activities etc. The purpose of this study is to discover whether there are any correlations between social fear and choice of educational program, between social fear and sex, and between social fear and Internet use. Questionnaires were administered to 80 upper secondary pupils. Each questionnaire answer was assigned a certain score, which was then coded in SPSS, the highest scores corresponding to highest degrees of shyness. Different nonparametric tests were used. No correlation between social fear and educational choice was found. However, significant correlations between social fear and internet use and between the sexes were found for certain items. Social fear is a subject which can be seen from different perspectives, but, in order to achieve a greater depth of knowledge, more extensive research is required.
