    No. Not asking just introverts. I know of shy extroverts.

    No I'm not shy. But if I'm not used to my surroundings I will observe for a while. Sometimes this is taken as shyness.

    Correct. Conflate reticence and shyness and then get shocked by something "so out of character!" Sometimes people are silent because they don't think what they have to say at a given time adds anything novel in the grand scheme of things (why bother?). They're often right. Then there's reticence when you know the audience isn't ready for whatever you have to add because it's so oblique that it would require too much explanation to be communicated even nearly effectively. Then there's reticence to avoid needless friction. And so it goes. Assuming we define shyness as being timid/ bashful / deficient, it's easily misdiagnosed.

    I'm shy around mean people, authorities, and guys I feel very attracted to who I don't know.

    I know an ENFP with some pretty bad social anxiety. =(
    I'm so sad for him. Social anxiety is bad enough as it is but to be an ENFP with social anxiety...=(

    Not really. You looked pretty confident actually. Emphasis on the pretty.

    But then, I'm the most friendly guy in the universe, so it's easy not to feel shy around me.
