Is Shyness an illness?


From a health standpoint and from a psychiatric perspective, shyness is not a disease but a rather common occurrence which brings no harm to a person.

On the other hand, Social Phobia / Social Anxiety and Avoidance Personality are classified by Psychiatry as mental disorder because they cause much suffering and result in a reduction in the quality of life. However, many specialists see them as more serious forms of Shyness.



Do histories of humiliation lead to Shyness?


Generally they do. However, it may be that some factor will contribute in such a way that resentment, generated by humiliation–such as humiliating public spankings–may lead the person to a pathway away from Shyness. For example, they may go on to become aggresive in contacts.



Is a shy person insecure?


A shy person is not always insecure. I do not like the term "insecurity" because it is vague and can be described in several different ways. In spite of that, it can be said that a certain shy person appears insecure in some situations. Another one becomes temporarily insecure in some situations. Yet another feels a discomfort so mild that it cannot be labeled as insecurity. Another individual is extremely confident and efficient in many areas and is disturbed only in certain interpersonal contacts.
