Abstract Ten high and twelve low socially anxious females were recruited to participate in a simulated “colour and emotions experiment”. Half of each group received self-enhancing statements whilst the other half were presented with neutral statements. Subjects waited in a disguised observation room and their behaviours were monitored unobtrusively during interaction with a confederate. Results showed that prior to treatment high anxious females made significantly more negative self-statements, conversed less, made fewer initiations of conversation than low anxious females. Latency of conversation and non-verbal behaviours were not significantly different for the two groups. Treatment with self-enhancing statements had no effect on the degree of social interaction and self statements generated by the two groups.
