I used to be shy when I was in elementary but am noisy when outside of classroom, and it was 2 years ago... but when I'm no on high school, I developed my self confidence and I became confident, but am quiet now... since I'm a transferee student last year, I still cope to the environment there... well, everyone is asking me why am so quiet and doesn't talk too much... but am not really like this when am with my friends.. I even tease them sometimes.. lol, I dunno why... I'm just a bipolar person... lol

No offense to all those shy and quiet people. They are sort of annoying. I mean really, what is there to be so shy and scared about? They don't listen, cuz they are too scared too, argh they are just so stuck up.

What do you think of shy and quiet people?

They're a little socially awkward, so I'll help them if I can. (:

How do act act toward them? Do you think they are stuck up, because they don't talk to you?

I'm nice to them and occasionally reach out to them. If they don't want me to, I'll push a little to make sure, and then leave them be (:

Do you think they are smart or smarter because they are quiet in class, unlike almost everyone else?

Not really, lol

Do you think they are depressing or weird or even crazy?

Yeah. It's kinda cool to see from their viewpoints. XD

Do you feel like you have to act differently around them because they're different?

Naww. X3 Maybe I'll be a little more gentle, I guess.

Do you feel bad for them? Do you try to talk to them because you feel bad for them?

Sometimes.

Do you judge them harder or think about them differently because they are shy or quiet?

Not really?

I have been shy pretty much my whole life, but when I was younger I'd interact with some people and then after I transfered classes I just started not to talk to people much. I've always gotten the "Why are you so quiet" question and I just answer straightforward and say I'm shy, but no ones ever told me or have I ever heard people say that I'm stuck up just because I'm shy, its just the way I am. I often hate the fact that I'm shy since I have very few close friends, I see people in my class that are always outgoing and loud talking pretty much the whole class period while I'm just sitting by myself. For people who say "Whats there to be shy about" or "Why are you so shy" its basically different for everyone, but it maybe its because we're scared of how people might judge us, we like to be independent, or we're just not very socializing people.

I don't think that shy people are any different than other people. My friend and I are pretty shy and I hate it when people treat us differently.Must people try to force you to talk or ignore you're opinions. Teacher's tend to treat us differently too. One of my teachers gave me this long talk about how I have to speak up more especially if I was going to take a honors class and want to get the attention of a college. Its not that I don't like to talk its just that I observe how people are before I open up to them and I have issues with talking in large crowds. I talk a lot to my group of friends but even among us they tend to be careful about they say. I guess its because they think I am more sensitive than the are.Of course that isn't true. I'm okay with any kind of subject. Another thing that people do is think that we are some kind of saints that wouldn't do anything bad.My classmates freaked when I said "damn", "douche bag", and "asshole". One of my guy friends even asked me if I ever had a crush. He that he thought that I had never had a crush because I was so quiet. So in conclusion I don't think that shy people are different but other people do.

I omitted a few questions.

What do you think of shy and quiet people?

I think they are mysterious.

How do act act toward them?

If they are the deathly shy type, I kinda give them space and try not give them attention but kinda
try to talk to them. :)

Do you think they are stuck up, because they don't talk to you?

Nope, their just shy thats all.

Do you think they are smart or smarter because they are quiet in class, unlike almost everyone else?

The ones that talk all the time in class are always distracted obviously, they shy ones are doing there work
and probably getting good grades. :D

Do you think they are depressing or weird or even crazy?

I kinda think they might depressed if they have no one to talk to, thats why I try to talk to them in
the first place. But if they have active friends outside of class they talk to all the time then no, I don't
think they are crazy or depressed.

Do you feel bad for them?

Kinda, because everyone else is blabbering away in class while there is a person left out, I try to give company to
the shy one. Thats why I always sit beside my friend Darren, hes crazy shy. Barely talks at all in school, but hes pretty outgoing
once were out of school.

hmm... i don't really think anything special about shy or quiet ppl to be honest, just like all other types of ppl...
sure it might cross my mind that someone is more quiet than the rest,
it might cross my mind wondering why that is,
i might go and talk to a quiet person if i feel like it but not out of pity reasons,
sometimes i'm the quiet person XD

i don't like to assume how ppl are at gatherings, especially if seeing said someone for the first time,
the quiet person might actually be a very lively person just being tired, sad, bad day, whatever.
of course there's always the first impression, i just don't like to disregard the 2nd, 3rd or 4th impression because of it.

Quiet and shy people aren't necessarily lonely. I have plenty of friends, and when I'm not in a good mood, I'm just in a normal mood, I'll be all quiet and shit. I used to be shy too, but it's just me being quiet now. I think it's awesome.

I think it's kind of interesting how a lot of the comments say that they will reach out to the quiet ones. This is coming from the perspective of the person who belongs to that shy and quiet category. Maybe it depends on the place you live, or maybe the citizens of crunchyroll are just very outgoing, but in my personal experience very few people actually are proactive enough to go up to someone and start a conversation or invite them to be their friend.

Although most people probably not thinking about how stuck up a quiet person is, they still don't know anything about that person's personality, so they don't know how to treat them and therefore just ignore them. Which means it's partially our fault too, I guess. Personally, my problem is that I can't start or keep a conversation. But I suppose it helps my grades since I'm not distracted. Not to enforce the stereotype or anything.

I am very shy around new ppl, when i entered middle school I was the only one from my elementary school there, but eventually i made a few close friends i act so crazy around them, some ppl were surprised when i actually started to show my real self although it took half of the school year to do so, and if someone could manage to piss me off (which is very very very hard to do) That would make every ones mouth drop open like what happened in 6th grade

I was thinking the same thing! The only thing people try to do is make me talk to them or other people. And I totally understand you on the conversation part. But now I've been talking more.... but as I continue to keep talking I feel like I'm talking to much. Then it gets very awkward. Back to square one I guess.... (But at least I'll keep my good grades!)
