Introversion and shyness

social anxiety

Overcome shyness, deal with introversion and feel at ease with people

Shy and introverted people share common traits that boil down to an inability to easily confront and be around people, except for perhaps a small circle of friends and family. Even if you feel you have become used to being shy or introverted, these conditions can get in the way of your goals and happiness.

Do you suffer from any of the following?

  • Difficulty making friends and being sociable.
  • Feeling anxious or drained in social or work situations.
  • Stress being around other people.
  • Loneliness and lack of friends.
  • Difficulty speaking up or speaking your mind.
  • A tendency to bottle things up.

Difficulties being around people can mean missing out on the things that enrich your life or help you achieve your goals, such as meeting the right person for you, getting your ideal job, having successful business relationships or participating in social or family activities.
We offer Free Phone Consultations to give you guidance on overcoming shyness and dealing with introversion and answer any questions.

What is an introvert?

Is introversion hard-wired into a person? Basically, the answer is “no”. That’s not to say that an ability to introspect can’t be useful. You might enjoy certain attributes of introversion such as focus and concentration. Nevertheless, it is possible to become more extroverted, and we have helped thousands of people do that.

Shyness is being reserved, nervous or timid in the company of other people. Dictionaries define introversion as the quality of being shy and quiet, and preferring to spend time alone rather than with other people. It is also considered as the opposite to extroversion, where instead of looking outwards, the person is only looking inwards.

Someone who is introverted may experience strain being around others, loneliness through difficulty making friends, or feel drained every time they engaged with people. These feelings are generally not under a person’s control and can make life a lot more complicated and less fulfilling.
