Daily Video Vocabulary Episode 81 : Inhibit
Sometimes you can't do something that you are willing to due to many reasons, it could be because you are shy or embarrassed to do it or it could be something that stops or restricts you from doing it.
The word inhibit basically means something that  prevents oneself from doing something due to their shyness or the fear of facing embarrassment due to some restrictions applied.
 When you restrain or suppress yourself from behaving in a particular manner or from speaking something, you are holding yourself back, it means you are inhibiting yourself. This could because you are extremely shy or embarrassed.
The action of prohibiting or inhibiting is known as inhibition. It is a feeling that makes one self conscious and unable to behave in a relaxed and a natural manner.
As the word inhibits shows the action of restricting or forbidding, it is a verb.
For example, when you are performing on the stage for the first time, you feel very shy, you are inhibited from doing your best. It means, you find it difficult to lose your inhibitions and give it your best shot.
