It’s interesting because many people have noticeable blocks or hesitations in their speech and they still don’t considered to be stutterers. And they also don’t make a big deal out of it and don’t have a bigger fear of speech than an average speaker.

So, I think fear of speech and the identity and self-image of being a stutterer is also a great part of stuttering.
