In my previous post I mentioned something called the shame spectrum. This may be a misnomer, though, since I find it possible to visualise each person (in the context of social and non-social nudity) as a line on a two-dimensional plane, which shows how much they are nude in situations of varying social engagement.
This can be easily represented in a chart where the horizontal axis represents how social is a given situation (this is a rough estimation) and the vertical axis represents how likely one is to be nude in such a social situation – or better said, how relaxed one is being naked in such situations. I made an example chart below.
