Cringe vs embarrassment

Post by Boiledcabbages » October 14th, 2016, 6:47 pm

Could someone please take some time out of their lives to clearly distinguish between cringe and embarrassment? Thank you. You can also mention some moments when you cringed so badly...if you want to.
Negro- A biotic substance belonging to the mammalian kingdom that has evolved for nothing over the course of millions of years that lacks white pigment and is racially targeted and discriminated unfairly due to their high melanin levels which are primarily present for survival with being racially discriminated known as the secondary effect

Honestly, months ago, i used to wonder if white humans evolved from black humans and what if a genetic drift is happening

Cringe is the expression of wanting something awkward or uncomfortable to end.
Embarrassment is what you feel when something that would have a negative impact on your social status is revealed to others.

The expression most often tied to embarrassment is cringe, but it can be used in other contexts as well.

If you are afraid of spiders and see someone hold a spider, you may feel safe enough to not feel fear, but instead feel great discomfort. That is cringe.

If an actor in a movie is really terrible, the performance will be awkward, and you may cringe from how bad it is.

If you hear someone play a song on an instrument, but they are hitting the wrong notes, that may cause you to cringe.

It's physically painful for me to watch.
