When it comes to fear, no matter what, there is a simple answer: Fear of death.
This is the answer given by researchers who study the fear of death of the human species.
The fear is so deep that it can take months or even years to develop in a person.
But there are some signs you’re on the right track to avoid the fear.
Dr David Boon, a University of Queensland researcher, and his colleagues found that people with high levels of fear in their blood were less likely to seek help for fear of dying.
They also found that a higher level of fear can lead to better medical outcomes.
Dr Boon’s findings will be published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences next week.
“Fear of death is a common and powerful motivator for some people, so I think it’s not surprising that they would seek help and be reassured about their situation,” Dr Boo said.
“It’s important to remember that this is a generalisation, and we can’t generalise too much about fear of mortality.”
For many people, Dr Bouncy said, the fear is a symptom of other psychological problems, such as anxiety or depression.
“What we’re seeing is that a lot of people have high levels but that the symptoms of high levels are not necessarily a reflection of those issues, but rather a consequence of the underlying issues,” he said.
Dr Ben Lipsky, an associate professor at the University of Canberra’s Institute for the Study of Health and Illness, said the research was interesting but could not explain why people with higher levels of the fear did not seek help.
“I think we can certainly say that they’re coping in a way that might have an impact on the outcome of their care,” Dr Lipskey said.
He said the main factor could be a lack of empathy for the patient.
“They’re dealing with something that they feel is outside of their control, they’re dealing in a place where they don’t really understand the consequences of their actions,” Dr Dolan said.
The study also found a strong link between the amount of fear a person had and their chances of getting treatment.
People with a fear of being dead were more likely to receive treatment than those with a high level of the condition.
The research was funded by the Australian Research Council, the National Health and Medical Research Council and the Australian National University.
