Psychologists are quick to point out that there's a significant difference between shame and embarrassment. "A lot of people intuitively think there's a connection, that embarrassment is a weaker form of shame," says June Tangney, PhD, a psychologist at George Mason University. But that seems not to be the case. Shame, she's found, is much more intense and likely to be associated with moral transgressions. And while most people feel shame in the company of others, "solitary" shame is not uncommon, she says. Embarrassment, on the other hand, tends to stem from social slip-ups, and we rarely experience it outside a social context. Embarrassed folks are also more inclined to laugh about an embarrassing incident. "When people feel shame," she says, "there's no sense of humour about it at all." 1
