What is fear of failure?

Almost everyone is nervous before a practical exam; that is normal. The nerves usually have a motivating effect and encourage you to perform well. However, for some people the fear is so great that they block themselves instead of motivating themselves.

This may be a case of fear of failure. Fear of failure literally means: the fear of failing. We speak of fear of failure for the (practical) exam when you succumb to the pressure of that 'one hour'; for example, because of a blackout, or because of mistakes you never make during practical lessons.

Two types of fear

There are two types of fear: fear as a state and fear as a character trait. Fear of failure for the driving test is an example of fear as a state. You are extremely (unhealthily) nervous before the driving test, while in many other situations you do not suffer from anxiety at all. If you suffer from fear of failure, you often fail the driving test time and time again. While you are an excellent driver in relaxed situations. A shame, of course.
