There may be minor costs to unnecessary alarm reactions and futile mobilization of somatic and cognitive resources. However, the cost of a “false negative,” that is, failing to respond to a genuine threat, may be very high indeed. As noted by LeDoux (1996), it is better to have treated the stick as a snake than not to have responded to a possible snake. In fact, as succinctly phrased by Beck and Emery (1985), “One false negative and you are eliminated from the gene pool” (p. 4). Indeed, research shows that anxious individuals are inclined to overestimate the probability and seriousness of unfortunate events (Butler & Mathews, 1983).

The person’s subjective sense of being anxious depends on a complex integration of the different components of anxiety, depending on the individual. An interesting sideline to research on the multiple facets of anxiety is the so-called repressor personality, referring to individuals in whom the physiological and emotional facets diverge rather sharply. These persons show high levels of physiological responsivity (autonomic arousal) but do not seem to experience corresponding subjective anxiety.

Computer anxiety was found to be positively related to math anxiety (and other anxieties, such as state, trait, and test), but these relationships rarely account for more than 10% of the variance in predicting computer anxiety. Although women were evidenced to be slightly more computer anxious than men, ­gender differences were minimal and not statistically reliable (see also, meta-analytic conclusions by Chua, Chen, & Wong [1999]). These differences were attributed by the 27 Chapter 1 authors to differences in early computer experience or other experiential factors, rather than gender, per se.
