    I have social anxiety to some extent. If that's shyness, than yes, but otherwise, no, not really.

    I assume we're asking this of introverts in general? Both Jung and Myers-Briggs notes that E/I has no bearing on being gregarious or shy, but where you focus your energy. I am not and have never been, shy. I have always been reserved.

    Yes, bordering on social anxiety (in my uneducated opinion, that is, which means nothing).

    Separate from this, I'm also fairly reserved in the introvert sense, but much less so.

    No. I used to be. But people are mean to shy people, so I turned into an obnoxious person. But people are mean to obnoxious people, so I just was myself.

    In no likes experiment.

    me as an enfj--not a shy bone in my body, no fear. i have a friend who is an infj and i don't think he's shy--just quiet and more reserved. i also have an istp friend and i'm on the fence about whether i think he's shy--sometimes he seems nervous socially, but can't really figure out if that's shy or just introverted. I think there is a huge difference between being shy and being introverted. shy implies some social anxiety/discomfort, but I think introverts can be that as a matter of choice. any other istps going to weigh in/ Introverts?

    Yes, in general I'm pretty shy, but I think I'm pretty good at hiding it (nervousness) when I know I have to socialize with people. I often tend to just say to myself, 'okay it's not a big deal, just do it.'
