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?
I guess it depends on how one defines extraverts. People who confidently introduce themselves in group situations, initiate conversations, and have strong opinions which they share without fear of being disliked are often resented by shy folks.
Yes its safer to be less assrrtive with opinions because opinions do chamge when either insight or circumstances change. It serves no one to be so definite/dogmatic unless one says "for only at this point in time". Peace only dashingscorpio.
Thanks Kiss and Tales. I have learned shyness is not a weakness though there is always an opportunity for change.

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
Have you tried sitting down in a smallish group and just chatting with them. That is a form of speech giving.
I understand your country aims to create entreprenuerial extroverts. China's society desires modest/shy people. Thought of migrating?
