It's a kind of irrational fear that causes people to avoid what makes them anxious or nervous!


It is pretty common to feel shy at times, but it cannot be a social issue for all. For example, some people are naturally calmer than others and prefer to deal with small groups of people. Some are shy only in certain situations where they feel uncomfortable, such as meeting people for the first time.

It's a kind of irrational fear that causes people to avoid what makes them anxious or nervous. Even if shy people know that there is no logic to behave as they do, they don't seem to prevent it anyway. For socially anxious people, it makes no difference, because they can't help but get nervous or behaving like that.

Fortunately, shyness is now recognized as a real social problem, and there is much research to find solutions that help such people. It is believed that one of the best ways to manage is through self-perception and try to focus on the positive aspects of introversion and building these positive properties.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with being shy. There are many extraordinary qualities found in them, although their condition tends to make them retreat into a world of their own and because they don't socialize much with other people, sometimes they don't realize much about what's going on around them.

Their absence of collaboration and socialization additionally makes it hard for them to adjust to specific sorts of professions, which can lead them to pick vocations far underneath their normal gifts and capacities. In more extreme situations, this can also lead to unemployment.

Some professions are more suitable for shy people than others, but what are they?

There are many books and other resources available.
However, few books are written specifically from the perspective of shy or socially anxious people and tend to ignore the social problems that these people face every day.

Great post, my friend! I can say for myself that I'm a shy person... Maybe it isn't that obvious on my videos and blog posts, but I am, and I was a lot worse in the past...

What changed me to step out? Well, life... lol... I was forced to go out between people and communicate... When I opened my first company, that was probably the hardest step to take, as it was a job where I had to work with unknown people, and conversate with them, make business with them, etc...

The next big step was recording videos... But, I don't regret that I have done that... And it helped me a lot to be more open with others, and in expressing myself and my views...

Thanks for a great topic, and I know that there are a lot of "hidden gems" out there, that are shy to come out... I hope that they will discover that they can give a lot and help others with expressing themselves...
