Shy to speak out, and be the first one to initiate conversation, things like that. How can you overcome it?

I never had so much trouble with what I thought people thought of me. It was that I was just not comfortable around anyone that I didn't know.
Perhaps I phrased it badly... not being comfortable around people you don't know is often because of some kind of unspoken fear. Self-esteem based shyness is often due to fears that revolve around the shy person's conception of how others see them.
Maybe. All I know is that I used to be somewhat uncomfortable being around anyone that I don't know. I was able to fix that problem, mostly because I talk to so many people that I don't know, that I just can't be uncomfortable, and now I am not.
Me too. I think that I am over it for the most part.
I see what you are saying. I think that I am over it.
I don't know.
Well, I can't think that way, even though my IQ tests pretty high.
