and harmful, and is attributed to people with low self-esteem and personality problems. This type
of fear acts on people who are impressionable and lack the capacity to react, people who are usually submissive and obedient, and inhibited by authority. These people may nonetheless have great potential capacities for interpretation or reaction of fear; what they don’t understand is that any authority they feel subordinated to, must also live with fear.
2 INDIFFERENT FEAR:
This type of fear is attributed to people who believe that they are capable of solving everything by letting the problem go. These are people without resources of their own, with few opinions and little experience. When they sense danger, they either let others solve it or let the problem invade the environment so that someone can solve it for them. They do not solve problems by themselves or try to understand them; they just run away leaving fear behind.
3 TRIGGER FEAR:

of perceiving life. The difference lays in how to see and understand fear and how to manage it. Past experiences lived by us or by others cause alerts that subject our mind. Thus, the trigger fear is the one that’ll help us see what solutions we can use against whatever circumstance is blocking us.

by understood fear gives us the ability to analyze and react. It helps us overcome our ego since it drives us
to constantly improve. This fear is characteristic to people with high self- esteem, who know and understand each other; the brave, who ultimately fight against themselves to improve and excel.
