There may be a genetic component to anxiety disorders in general, in that some people are probably born with a temperament that means they’re more likely to experience emotions more easily and that those emotions get triggered more quickly perhaps. There’s also some evidence that there tends to be more anxiety within families where there’s anxiety. Having said that, it might also be down to kind of characteristics of that person and it might also be a kind of a learned behaviour.
