Shyness is a feeling of awkwardness, lack of comfort while socializing with other people, especially with new people in unfamiliar places, it also can be considered as a trait in a human's personality. Moreover, In psychology shyness is defined as the awkwardness or apprehension some people feel when approaching or being approached, shy people most of the time want desperately to socialize but they don't know how, or what should they do. They also experience a type of anxiety that makes them so cautious while socializing with others, worrying that they might do or say something wrong so they are quiet most of the time thinking it’s the safest way, even though they want to impress others. However Shyness has many levels, from being shy for a minute because of some situation, to extreme shyness with everybody. Nevertheless, at the time being, shyness has extremely increased in the teenagers’ society, making many psychologists thinks about treating shyness. However many psychologists hesitate, whether they should actually kill this trait in humans. More importantly, can shy people overcome it, or is it a nature in them?
