    No - I'm very talkative.

    Depends what about. Mostly: no. I am, however, more of an observer. And there are things I don't talk about not because I am shy, but because I don't think they are things that should be talked about or are worth discussion. The over-confessional culture of everyday discourse (ultra TMI) doesn't sit well with me.

    I very much lack the trust in the motivations of others and it has saved my ass countless times.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    I've changed schools fifteen times before the age of sixteen.

    I was always the new kid.

    Some people find this hard to believe and others find it hard not to believe but, to answer your question, yes.

    More sensitive than shy. I tend to think of shy as battering one's self for discomfort and awkwardness, whereas introverts might experience awkwardness and not necessarily (but can) blame themselves.

    I like this one:

    shy-

    a. Drawing back from contact or familiarity with others; retiring or reserved.
    b. Marked by reserve or diffidence: a shy glance.
