Are shy people weak?


Do you think shyness is form of weakness, or an advantage part of a person's personality? Should it be discouraged? I am shy person of which many times has helped not falling into doing something weirdly-crazy (evil) of which am thankful. It has helped me to be sober in most situations (especially temptious ones). Can you regard such a person weak who speaking in front of people is a problem, standing in front of girls; a person who keeps brushing a lot tha neccessary - you get the drill. What are your thoughts?

    Thank you Three Keys. Also, I have learnt something I did not know. Introverts are good in jobs that require one to one relationships. Pretty the reason why I am also a writer. Now I know why people approach me with different problems.

    I at the moment can say that to me extroverts just wish "me me me" and are pretty inconsiderate and selfish. Yet I know shy ones are shielded from scrutiny when there is a extrovert in the room. What about being an ambivert?

    Thank you for your comment. You have highlighted when shyness turns out to be negative and how to mingle with people. I am usuakly the one approached than being approached. I have never known one moment when I have approached or initiated a conversat

    Yah, Angie. Thanks for your answer. It usually takes time for me to gt accustomed to a person. And, as you say at times I don't feel like doing it, example, standing in front of people to give a speech

    Thanks Kiss and Tales. I have learned shyness is not a weakness though there is always an opportunity for change.
