CONVERSION

noun. 1. an unaware undertaking wherein anxiousness produced by psychological differences is changed into physical warning signs. Customarily, this endeavor was presumed to be integrated in disorder, but existing DSM-IV-TR diagnostic indicators for the disorder do not make these kind of implication. 2. literal modification in a person's morals, outlooks, or actions which happens due to a societal impact. Different from compliance, which is external and transient, it takes place whenever the designated person is individually persuaded by a convincing communication or internalizes and takes as their very own those morals declared by other team members. Commonly referred to as private acceptance.

CONVERSION: "The conversion of her fear and worry displayed itself in the form of hives and trembling."
