    The only shy people I've seen succeed in sales has been in the capacity where they were "inbound" salespeople or worked on an order desk answering phones where customers (called them) to place orders and they might suggest some add on products.
    Overall most shy people are not going to be into "cold calling" or finding new prospects and conducting sales presentations.

    shy people are g enuine people who can give honest views to customers. I prefer shy salesperson than the annoying follow behind my back ones

    The main thing customers look for in anything is responsiveness. Yes, a shy person can do well in sales because they are trustworthy, they listen and they are eager to please. Each person has to find a style that works best for them.
