Do you feel uncomfortable when you see someone else being embarrassed? What’s most likely to make you squirm?
I hate to see people embarrassed (most times). My empathy is so bad at those times that I feel like I myself has committed whatever embarrassing act has taken place. Very few situations strike up the preemptive cringe like someone performing the National Anthem though. Seriously. I tense up Every. Single. Time. Its bad.
One of the first moments that come to mind where my early cringe was warranted is Christina Aguilera’s flub of the lyrics (which I noticed, but was like….nah I must have misheard). Honestly, she sang the wrong lyrics so well that most either shared my thought process or finally realized they didn’t know the lyrics as well as they thought.
And then there’s Steven Tyler’s performance.
