I'm like you. I was quiet in my younger years probably until about 23 and the job I was at I got over it I guess. Came out of my shell and well I'm not loud person. I guess I'm like you somewhere in the middle. If it is a big group of people and I don't know them I will slip into the quiet mode.

I was extremely shy as a child. I've outgrown it some but I'm still referred to as quiet. But believe me, if I'm comfortable and know the people around me - I'm not that quiet. :)

I guess I would have to say I am somewhere in the middle too. Some days I am quiet and kind of shy. Other days, I am the outgoing person and can get loud. I suppose it depends on the mood I am in. I love to laugh, so I suppose that helps me get a little loud.

well, I am definitely not shy and quiet, but I don't think I am loud. I am definitely outgoing, but in a quiet kind of way. Does that make any sense? I enjoy meeting new people and will speak readily with others but I am not one of those that have to be the 'life of the party.'

I'm always the quiet, laid-back one on our group. Sometimes my friends even call me grumpy because I don't instatly react to things that I am not familiar of, or sometimes I just observe them and think of what my initial approach would be. I've put in to mind to always think, observe and calculate first before I venture onto something, maybe a very different type of a quiet person, but not shy!;)

I am not shy, not quiet but that does not mean I am loud. I am outgoing and have been that way all my life.

Well, I think I am somewhere in the middle of those two (maybe a bit more inclined towards the shy and quiet type). There are times when I am quiet most of the time, yet there are times when I am really outspoken and blunt. =)

In orter tobe special it is necessary that a shy person feels so securet that he reveals his true self and makes cynical comments about himsaelf with the confidence of someone who has rehearsed the words before he says them The shy are excused from bringing flowers or presents on St Valentine's day. It is enough for them to show up.

It is the shy,the really shy,whom i admired. They do not impose force on others;when they speak it is generally because they have something important to say. They listen to our stories patiently and it's on their shiulders thatwe cry. Normally, they are wise because they spent more time looking at what is going on a around them-and manage to do so without anyone noticing. But, above all, they have a smile that extroverts generally don't. it is not common and, there fore, is more amusing-it begins at a corner of the mouth and becomes a smile a little bit at a time.

I still am shy. To the point where I went 17 years without a relationship. I'm lucky I have my girlfriend now and she took the initiative. I'm 50 so I don't think I'll ever change.

I'm somewhere in the middle. Put me with a group of my closest friends or family, and in the right mood I'm the social organizer or the life of the party. I love taking silly life events and turning them into stories for the entertainment of the people I know well. At work, I can also be a leader, run meetings, and give presentations and be quite comfortable the whole time. But if I end up in a crowded environment with people I don't know well, like a large party or networking event for work, I become shy. I'm not good at "breaking the ice" in these kind of situations and prefer to sit on the sidelines with the other shy types rather than walk around meeting and greeting or throwing myself into the mix.

For me, I think my personality depends on who I am with. If I am with my friends, I am very sociable and out going. I am even the one who asks them out to go to the mall or watch a movie but if I am with someone that I don't know, I cvery quiet and speaks only when spoken to.

When I was growing up I too was shy, but as you can see I outgrew it. When I first meet someone Im a little quite untill I get to know you. Then Im comfortable.
