When we describe ourselves in this way the prediction can be a self-fulfilling prophecy: believing ourselves to be shy we behave in ways that confirm our view of ourselves.

More methods are also described inthe next sections on doing things differently and building up confidence.

Social Anxiety is an anxiety disorder where we believe that others will judge us negatively "th ey'll think I'm an idiot" etc , and it is therefore experienced most acutely in situations when we are with other people. Our attention is very self-focussed - on what we must look like to others, what they might be thinking of us, trying to interpret every glance or other unspoken gesture or expression and what it might say about what they think about us. We become 'mind-readers' and imagine that we can correctly assume what others are thinking about us. Because we don't want to experience this anxiety and it's normal body response , we tend to avoid situations when it might happen, and therefore are unlikely to learn that it could be ok and we could actually enjoy ourselves. If we do have to go, then we use 'safety behaviours' to help us cope, such as trying not to be noticed, avoiding eye contact, holding or fiddling with something, trying to hide e. This all increases the self-focus.
