Our expert says:
Many of us are shy, some to such a severe degree it gets called Social Anxiety Disorder. But it generally responds really well to CBT style counselling, to help one grow in self-esteem and self-confidence. And to learn some simple social skills - for instance, recognize that most other people will consider you a great conversationalist if you actually say very little, but ask a few open questions and just listen a lot. It's much harder, and more desirable for most of us, to find a good audience, than to find someone to talk at us !
