And what a difference an introvert with a shy person? Check out the explanation below!
1. The shy people are not necessarily introverts
Extroverts people are also many who could not overcome stage fright and a sense of nervous when dealing with others. Not that when a person becomes a shy, he/she is an introvert and vice versa.
2. The shyness is different from the introverted
Shyness is fear of negative judgment from others. While the introvert is a person's choice to remain calm. An introvert also prefer to choose a quiet place.
3. For the shy people, social life looks terrible
Introvert does not mean antisocial. They do not mind to join with others or within a community. In contrast to the shy people, for them to live in a social world is something painful.
Often we make the label, so that over time the introvert can be a shy person, and vice versa. This is to be realized by our society in order not to make people wrong recognize themself.
An introvert would often feel frustrated when others treat them as though they were as shy. Introverts do not want to be misunderstood. Although indeed, the nature of these people prefer to spend their days with passive.
