    Pretty much. A person being reserved doesn't talk much not because he is shy, but because he just doesn't talk much.

    A shy person is willing to talk more, but trying to talk/meet with people can be a source of apprehension.

    Of course, one can be both reserved AND shy, wherein one doesn't like to talk much, but when one needs to talk, it is a source of apprehension.

    I'm more shy than reserved, though I can be both. If I'm feeling comfortable around people I'm generally a chatterbox.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I am not shy. However I don't like to be bothered, and I will even be rude to strangers if they insist on talking at me. However some people interpret it as shyness. But I am not. I will be very open if I feel comfortable and like socializing.

    I finally learned that at least in MBTI terms I am an introvert, because people take my energy and I have to be alone to recharge. On the other hand I am extremely expressive in writing, or when I feel like talking. I am an ambivert. I am very quiet until I am not. It's not so much that I am quiet as that I need my own space. Lots of space.

    I'd agree with that. I'm both shy and reserved.

    My shyness is why I try to avoid you before I meet you. My reservedness is why I look at what you're wearing and steer the conversation away from appearances and fashion.
