Sample Answer of Describe an Occasion When You Were Scared or Afraid

There have been multiple occasions where I was frightened to death, but I’m only going to talk about 3 of them. I distinctly remember my trip to an exotic island around 3 years ago with my sister. We had planned on diving into the sea and spotting stingrays. However, when I was told to dive, I developed cold feet. I was petrified of jumping off the boat because of the fact that stingrays do sting, and the venom could kill a human even if accidentally touched. My sister being the brave one, jumped in first, and I followed. It was a mesmerizing experience once I got into the sea. I overcame the fear and felt so comfortable around the rays because they were extremely friendly.

Another instance where I was terrified is from my recent trip to Australia. This was a year ago, and I was thrilled to do this adventure. It was a hot air balloon ride. I did it with two locals who were warm and friendly. Once we got up into the air, the balloon started to sway left to right with a gush of wind coming in, and that got me frightened because there were no harnesses to keep us secured. I immediately wanted to get back to the ground.

Follow-ups Questions Describe an occasion when you were scared or Afraid

Question 1:- Is it ok to frighten others?

Answer – Well, this depends. As a prank, if doing it subtly, it’s fun to frighten others like our siblings, but on a more serious note, I would be against it if someone did that to me.

Question 2:- How do people usually get frightened?

Answer – Many factors could contribute to people getting afraid. Some people are scared of ghosts and stories that make them believe they do exist. E.g., my sister would not stay home alone because she fears an otherworldly existence in the house. Some get frightened of thunder and lightning too.

Question 3:- Do children like to scare others?

Answer – Well, not all. Children learn from adults. Some like to do it for fun, whereas others consider it as a time pass. Also, children get scared themselves, depending on their age and who they pick this up from.

Question 4:- Why is it easy to scare some people?

Answer – One main reason I can think of is that you already know an individual’s personality. If someone known to you cannot watch horror shows or is always anxious, scared of things in life and gets intimidated easily, then it may be easy to scare them. Otherwise, it depends from person to person.

Question 5:- What should people do when they feel scared?

Answer – In my view, they should try to overcome their fear by asking questions or experiencing an event alone or even while with someone else. The idea is to become fearless so that no one can mock them.
