Haha, for me, it's a very big YES!!! I am practically one of the shyest person you can ever meet, and I'm always very afraid that I will ask silly questions and get laughed at, which I guess will make me even more shy if that really happens! Anyway, now that I'm going to venture into a career as a pharmacist (very soon...I'm graduating at the end of this year!), I realized that being shy and afraid to ask questions is not the way to go if I want to succeed in my career. So, I 've began to be more open and bold, and I can say that nowadays I tend to open my mouth to speak more and ask questions when I am in doubt. I can really testify that things are not as bad as I thought it would initially be, and there are people that are more than glad to answer my questions, no matter how silly they may be.

Hehe. I am not that sincere in class. So always I will be standing and blinking without knowing. At times my friends would help me answer. Even then if I feel bored to answer I won't. I will wait for the staffs to send me out. Lol. This is during my college days. In my school days I was regular in answering. Not everything but those which I know. I will not hesitate to answer. Happy mylotting.
