shame -

Shame is one form of human emotion. Shame has diverse meanings, that is an emotion, understanding, statement, or condition experienced by a human being due to an action he has done before, and then wants to cover it up. Shy persons naturally want to hide from others because of feelings of discomfort if their actions are known to others.

In some books, such as Stephen Pattison's Shame: Theory, Therapy, Theology by Stephen Pattison and Shame: Exposed Self by Michael Lewis, shame is identical to the feelings of Eve in the Garden of Eden when she breaks God's command not to eat Kuldi fruit about good and evil knowledge.

At that moment Eve was ashamed that she realized she was naked after she committed a sin, eating the fruit of the kuldi which was forbidden by God Himself.
