Re: Is shyness a form of social anxiety?

being really shy is like you dont want to talk because you feel awkward infront of people or you just simply dont like drawing attention to yourself but you dont worry about being in crowds too much

however id say social anxiety is knowing that you dont want to talk to them because you're scared of embarrasing yourself or you get physical and mental symptoms such as sweating and you really dislike being in crowded places etc

thats my definition, hope its some help
