Introversion and shyness are NOT the same


Having completed my first year of my Psychology degree, personality remains a prominent discussion amongst research. With this being said, theoretical approaches have enhanced the understanding that individuals exhibit a set of traits ingrained from birth. Considering levels of 'extroversion', the understanding that higher scores are indicative of sociability, there is a misconception that being socially inept is a result of a reserved nature, when introversion is merely not a measure of shyness. Therefore, why do we believe this? Do you believe introversion and shyness correlate?
