If you are one of those who for no reason blushes and feels awkward in large companies, we have some very exciting news. Even two. First: most others think that you are very reliable and friendly person. And second: it is not just seems! Recent studies confirmed that shy people are the most generous and really trustworthy.
Here what about this said one of the study participants, doctor of psychology, Matthew Feinberg:
”Shyness is a sign of people with a good heart. Our work proves that this is indeed a very good quality, and not something what is worth fighting for”.
Feinberg I’m sure that shyness can be useful both in business and in personal life. At work shy people inspire the cooperation of others, and after work to gather a small group of real friends.
The study took place in several stages. First, volunteers were asked to recall the most embarrassing moments of their lives. They often recalled in public transport called a pregnant woman who are overweight or have mixed carelessly dressed man with a homeless guy. All the stories were recorded on video to then, examining the gestures and facial expressions of the volunteers, the researchers could tell which of them is more shy. The subjects are asked to play a “Dictator”. This is a game with pretty simple rules: each received 10 lottery tickets, some of which were to keep and some to give away. It turned out that the more shy participants in the study gave more lottery tickets, which indicates a high level of generosity.
In another experiment, a fake actor, being surrounded by the tested volunteers in different situations behaved, or shy, or confident. It turned out that with a shy version of the actor that people would like to chat more. When he was pretending to be troubled, to him immediately approached for advice or simple conversation.
This study definitively proved that natural shyness is not a drawback, which must be fought, and treasure that should be cherished. After these results, scientists have thought about other research that is planned to be conducted shortly. Im wondering does this mean that overly confident people inspire confidence. That’s how you think?
