Shyness

Shyness is the feeling of discomfort occurring when a person is in proximity to other people, especially during unfamiliar situations. It is more likely to occur in individuals who dealt with fearful experiences during their childhood.

Differentiating between introversion and shyness, introverts choose to avoid social situations because they derive no reward from them or may find them overwhelming, whereas shy people may fear such situations.
