Why Do People Experience Fear?

Why do humans experience fear? For most of us, fear is defined as the reaction of the body to a threat or any unusual situation. In other words, if we are walking down the street and an aggressive driver suddenly comes upon us, we would experience fear. It is human nature to be afraid in most situations. However, in many cases, fear is a reaction to things that are imaginary or never happened. For example, if a person imagines a terrible disease that doesn’t exist, he or she will be in fear.

The danger with this kind of emotion is that it can manifest itself in many ways, and there are many types of fear. Some people become so fearful that they avoid all contact with the outside world. Others experience fear when they are asked to give an opinion on something that they didn’t even know existed.

Why do humans experience fear? We don’t know, but one thing is sure. We are scared if we are walking through the woods and we hear a wolf howling nearby. If we are driving on a busy road and a car driving up behind us suddenly speeds up, our body starts to experience fear because we do not know what is going to happen next. If ever there was a test for this, it is the fear of future experiences.
