    How shy or introverted are you? The poll is anonymous.

    I'm so shy it causes other people to feel awkward around me.

    i'm only shy in a few specific situations. i'm very introverted though, and since extroverts refuse to acknowledge the existence of introversion, i've been falsely accused of shyness many times.

    Hmmm. At home and such I value my alone time. Don't have the desire to go out nearly as much as I used to. Today for example I stayed home alone most of the day and night and was fine with it. But when I do go out I like a smaller place like a pub where I can strike up a conversation with an interesting person. I'm bad at parties if I cant find that interesting person to bond with.

    I was very shy as a child and still can be in certain situations but i've grown out of it for the most part.
    I'm still pretty reserved around most people though, unless I click with them or find them interesting or have known them a while.

    And i'm very much an introvert, which isnt the same as being shy. I love being around people (if I click with them and find them interesting, that is) but only for a while, then I have to retreat and restore my depleted energy
    I really enjoy my own company for the most part, which I think is a valuable trait in life. If you're okay with being alone you dont ever have to fear being alone.

    Sometimes, I’m shy/introverted and other times, outgoing. For me, it takes me a bit to feel comfortable enough to show the outgoing side. But I like being alone sometimes and other times, around people.

    I think the poll choices are interesting. I don’t know if I’ve ever viewed the opposite of shy as popular, hmm.

    I can be shy at times. I'm very much introverted but also very active and outgoing. Probably more active than most extroverts.

    I can be a good conversationalist if i click well with someone. Other than that i can be quiet to the point where people around me are unaware of my presence.

    I don't waste words and am only able to maintain meaningful conversation. I guess I actively avoid small talk and have a bit of anxiety if I am in a situation where I know I need to make small talk. I am often thinking to myself "how am I going to get out of this conversation?"

    I don't feel shy though. I don't mind engaging with people as long as it is purposeful and not forced.

    Pressed_Rat Do you even lift, bruh?

    Not really shy, but introverted. I feel like I don't have much to say to most people.

    I am the speak when spoken to type. I am not one for small talk.

    i don't think extroverts are normally any more active on average anyway. they just need attention from people, but a lot of them seem to get that attention by sitting at a bar talking to the extrovert sitting next to them, rather than doing anything particularly active.

    so few people actually are active, it's kind of a better lifestyle for an introvert. an active extrovert would have a hell of a hard time finding someone to be active with.

    I was not shy personality wise but was too scared to get close to a female for far too long. I thought a past of my body was not normal. I was wrong but it took me a long time to find out.

    Always been very shy. Nary a week goes by without someone telling me "You're so quiet." It bugged me for a long time, but I've gotten used to it. Although it definitely has its drawbacks. I really like people and don't get to be around them much because I'm too shy.

    Oh yeah, i hate that too. Worse if they ask why i'm so quiet or why i don't smile.
