Mikael Cho from ooomf guest blogs about stage fright on Lifehacker – the popular web site with ”tips, tricks, and downloads for getting things done”. Perhaps no groundbreaking insights, but a well-written text with some useful stuff: What Happens to Your Brain When You Have Stage Fright?
I especially like the Charles Darwin quote which perfectly summarizes the nature of irrational fear, for example the fear of speaking in public:
My will and reason were powerless against the imagination of a danger which had never been experienced.
To describe it and understand it is the first step to subdue it.
