The Shame Code was developed to capture behavior as it unfolds in real time during the socially stressful and potentially shaming spontaneous speech task and was coded into the following categories: 1 Body Tension, 2 Facial Tension, 3 Stillness, 4 Fidgeting, 5 Nervous Positive Affect, 6 Hiding and Avoiding, 7 Verbal Flow and Uncertainty, and 8 Silence.
Fidget Factor: hiding, fidgeting, nervous positive and low levels of stillness. Individuals high on Fidget displayed high levels of fidgeting and hiding behaviors, such as hiding their face and avoiding any eye contact with the experimenter, and low nervous positive affect or still-ness.
By making repeated movements and avoiding direct contact with the experimenter, individuals who scored high on the Fidget factor communicated clearly and obviously that they were distressed while giving a speech. This non-verbal communication is a signal of discomfort to the observer and is perhaps an unconscious request for help.
Fidgeting has been identified through discourse analysis of couples in conflict as a visual cue of shame, related to facial tension and masking of expressions.
Freeze Factor: stillness, facial tension and silence. Individuals who scored higher on this factor typically displayed a lack of any movement, facial tension such as lip biting and furrowing their brows, and a lack of any spoken words. Freezing is ultimately a withdrawal from a situation that one cannot escape physically, hence providing no action in this case a speech may reflect an effort to eliminate the possibility of negative evaluation.
These behaviors that are included in the freeze factor "reflected participants" actual internalized shame, consistent with previous research. Freezing is a behavioral response to threat in mammals and it may be that those who scored higher on this factor were experiencing more intense shame during the speech. They convey a sense of helplessness that may initially elicit sympathetic or comforting actions. Trait Shame: A negative evaluation implies flaws reflective of the self, rather than of a behavior.
Shame proneness was associated with more fidgeting and less freezing, but both stillness and fidgeting are social cues that communicate distress to observers, and may elicit less harsh responses.
Thus, both may be an attempt to diminish further shaming experiences. Shame involves global, self-focused negative attributions based on the anticipated, imagined, or real negative evaluations of others and is accompanied by a powerful urge to hide, withdraw, or escape from the source of these evaluations. These negative evaluations arise from transgressions of standards, rules, or goals and cause the individual to feel separate from the group for which these standards, rules, or goals exist, resulting in one of the most powerful, painful, and potentially destructive experiences known to humans.
It has been suggested that narcissism in adults is related to defenses against shame  and that narcissistic personality disorder is connected to shame as well. The oblivious subtype presents for admiration , envy, and appreciation a grandiose self that is the antithesis of a weak internalized self which hides in shame, while the hypervigilant subtype neutralizes devaluation by seeing others as unjust abusers.
Stigma occurs when society labels someone as tainted, less desirable, or handicapped. This negative evaluation may be "felt" or "enacted". When felt, it refers to the shame associated with having a condition and the fear of being discriminated against The other use of stigma and shame is when someone has a disease, such as cancer, where people look to blame something for their feelings of shame and circumstance of sickness.
Jessica M. Sales et al. The answers showed implications of shame and stigma, which received an accommodating score. The scores, prior history of STDs, demographics , and psychosocial variables were put into a hierarchical regression model to determine probability of an adolescents chances of using protected sex in the future.
The study found that the higher sense of shame and stigma the higher chance the adolescent would use protection in the future. This means that if a person is more aware of consequences, is more in-tune with themselves and the stigma stereotypes, disgrace, etc. The study shows that placing more shame and stigma in the mind of people can be more prone to protecting themselves from the consequences that follow the action of unprotected sex.
HIV -related stigma from those who are born with HIV due to their maternal genetics have a proneness to shame and avoidant coping. David S. Bennett et al.

On the surface it might seem like Shame, Shame is more of the same from Dr. Dog , and in many ways it is.
They still sound basically the same and still write great rock tunes straight out of the early '70s. But there are some key differences from their past albums as well. They've brought in an outside co-producer for the first time Rob Schnapf and scaled back the production excesses of Fate. And while they don't seem autobiographical or even specific, the lyrics sound more like they're drawn from real life, giving an added depth that hadn't really been there before. There's also a bit more of a world-weary undercurrent, but it's never sad or depressing probably just a symptom of too much touring.
But that said, this is still a Dr. I remember hearing "Shame Shame Shame" when it first came out in I was 11 years old, and I saw Shirley & Company perform it on a comedy/variety show that Bill Cosby had on TV at the time. The song was so nutty, and their on-screen performance of it was so loopy and off-the wall, that I didn't even realize it was a real song by a real group/5(8).
