„Those who are not able to poses a certain proportion of a shame and justice are nothing but an infection of a village, and should be killed.“ (Plató)
Hartl and Hartlová define the emotion of shame as a reaction to any wrongdoing or violation of social norms and/or rules. Zimbardo and Henderson list a series of symptoms, in which shy reactions manifest on the physiological level: fast heartbeat, dry mouth, sweating skin. Shame has a wider psychological sense, in the narrower sense, you can distinguish different types of shame; sexual, moral and social. To experience shame, confrontation between a personal imperfection or failure and one's social environment is essential. Shame is associated with loss of capability in the public's eyes, unconfidence, embarrassment, etc.
