Interesting Fact - Anxiety

Attendees at the National Union of Students Women's Conference were asked not to clap after some delegates reported feeling anxious during audience applause.

(The NUS Women's Campaign tweeted from its official account: "Some delegates are requesting that we move to jazz hands rather than clapping, as it's triggering anxiety. Please be mindful!"

But clapping was not the only behaviour that caused problems for attendees at the Solihull event.

Another delegate claimed that murmuring was "making things inaccessible", leading the NUS to issue an edict banning "chat" and "whooping".

It's lucky I wasn't there, as I am jazzhandaphobic.  Just tell everyone to sit on their hands, and be quiet.  Back to kindergarten.)
