When you do something scary or stressful — bungee jumping, public speaking, etc. — do you prefer to be surrounded by friends or by strangers? Why? – Daily Prompt
I would prefer to be surrounded by strangers when putting myself out there, say in public speaking or similar. Anonymity is best in these types of situations, you can make a fool of yourself, or not, and slip away, your friends non the wiser, no one you know to make fun of you or criticize you in that ‘well meaning’ way.
Although, in regards to bungee jumping, which I have never wanted to do, I would prefer friends around. As with white water rafting and the like…more fun with friends.
