About us
We are a support group for shy people. Extreme shyness, in psychological terms, is called social phobia, or social anxiety. Social anxiety causes anxiety and panic attacks in certain social or per-formance situations such as public speaking, dealing with authority figures, being in groups or public places, talking to strangers, using the telephone, etc.
