Most of us know what it is like to feel shy. Although it may seem as if everyone else in the room is feeling confident, social anxiety is a nearly universal experience. In a classic study in the s, Philip Zimbardo found more than 80 percent of people reported they were shy at some point in their lives, while more than 40 percent described themselves as currently shy. About 4 percent described themselves as extremely shy in that they felt shy all the time, in all situations and with virtually all people. Thus, shyness appears to exist on a continuum with most of us feeling shy in some specific situations and a small percentage struggling with severe shyness in all situations.
