This chapter reports the development and results related with different types of shyness in adolescents and adults. It specifically describes the research and theory on shyness with a focus on the varieties of shyness that are experienced during adolescence and adulthood. After considering the distinction between early- and later-developing shyness, it discusses the three-component model of adult shyness. It then introduces a new approach to withdrawn and dependent subtypes of shyness. Finally, it ends with some implications of the approach for future directions in theory, research, and treatment. It can be concluded that the personal revolution necessary for reorganizing the shy person's self-concept and social behavior is a difficult but achievable goal.

Keywords:   shyness, adolescents, adults, adolescence, adulthood, self-concept, social behavior
