Some psychologist told this on TV few years ago and this came to my mind when I spoke with my friend about personalities of some celebrities.

I tried to find some articles or studies about the topic on internet, but couldn't find any.

  • $\begingroup$ @just_guessing -- I believe the specific term would be performance anxiety, which is naturally stressful. $\endgroup$ – Michael Jan 27 '16 at 14:00
