I dunno ... I always found it easy to act. I mean I get stage fright like everyone else, but whenever I've given public performances before it almost feels like the role you are playing takes over and the person you really are isn't being shown. Ask me to go to a party or talk to a group of people socially however and I'll have a panic attack. Haha.

Back when Kim Bassinger was dating Prince she wore a dress designed by Prince to one of the awards shows. If I remember correctly it was "VERY" revealing. I can't imagine anyone who would wear something like that in from of a tv audience of probably a billion people being shy.

Well, everyone's aware that George Bush suffers from S.P. Word has it that he forgot almost half of the State of the Union address and had to wing it. This is why he holds so few press conferences, fewer than any other president ever. He is honestly afraid of the spotlight. The whole WMD thing must be giving him serious panic attacks! I feel for old W.

Also, **** Cheney's a major introvert, as well. During the whole 9-11 thing, word has it that he became agoraphobic and wouldn't come out of his lavishly furnished Pentagon bomb shelter for days. That quickly passed, thank god! Lord knows we need him as v.p!

Ricky Williams was attacked for his constant substance abuse. But the thing is, he needed to smoke weed before every game.

there's no way bush and cheney have sp!!!!!!!!!
a politician wouldn't survive with sp. all the people they have to talk to daily, all the people they have to deal with, all the speeches they have to give, public talks, etc.... all the hypocrisy, lies, empty promises......
I don't believe a person with sp could ever be a politician and survive and get elected for president and vicepresident.......

Default used to..

Somebody doesn't used to have SA and SP..........

Yeah maybe they improved and got medication or treatment for it, but that would be like a cancer survior saying "they used to have cancer.."

Um, it's always there.....

So people who claim to "used to" have anything like SP or SA are just lying.

Anyone can overcome their social phobia and anxiety.

Phobia comes from anxiety, anxiety arises from mind.

When you seek to understand the mind and learn methods for weakening your anxiety, phobia dissapears, what you are left with is a habit-like residue of scary appearances of anxiety. It takes time but we can all weaken our anxiety if we learn how.

One of the biggest reasons people do not think they can ever overcome this anxiety is because they identify with it so closely. Comments such as ,"I will never overcome anxiety because its an intrinsic part of who i am" are ridiculous. Anxiety is not 'our self' it's what appears to our mind. Our mind is something we can control. So we can control and overcome our anxiety through understanding our mind.

Jack

It's all in your mind.

Historical Figures . . . Painfully shy

Abraham Lincoln He may have given the Gettysburg Address and led our country through a civil war, but when it came to courting women, Lincoln was a shy and, in many ways, awkward man. http://kentuckyexplorer.com/nonmembers/01-02058.html

Albert Einstein Einstein didn't let his shyness get in the way of saving Jews from Hitler's rule and developing the Theory of Relativity and E=MC2. http://trillian.com/bio/Einstien.htm

Annie Oakley Annie Oakley overcame both shyness and poverty to become a star in Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show. http://www.readthewest.com/margebeeJULY.html

Clara Barton Best know for having founded the Red Cross, Clara Barton was a nurse who braved the battlefields to tend the wounded during the Civil War. http://www.geocities.com/1stdragoon/files/cb1.html

Eleanor Roosevelt Painfully shy as a child, Eleanor Roosevelt grew into one of our nations strongest female political figures. http://www.multied.com/bio/ladies/ae_roosevelt.html

Orville Wright By trade Orville and his brother Wilbur repaired and manufactured bicycles, but their real fascination was with flight. What most people don't know is that Orville was exceptionally shy. http://www.curtisswright.com/history/1900-1903.asp

Theodore Roosevelt Roosevelt's shyness was said to stem from asthma which led him to be slight in build in his youth. http://www.blackmask.com/books32c/teddy.htm

Thomas Edison Extremely shy, this inventor is said to have given up hopes of becoming a Shakespearian actor due to shyness and a high pitched voice. Fortunately, his shyness didn't prevent him from inventing the light bulb. http://www.thomasedison.com/biog.htm

Thomas Jefferson He may have written the Declaration of Independence, but the only time this shy politician was said to have spoken publicly during his presidency was at his inauguration and when it came to delivering legislative proposals, that was done in writing. http://www.americanpresident.org/his...omasjefferson/

Ulysses S. Grant His success as a general in the Union army led to his election as President of the United States, but he, too, was shy. http://www.americanpresident.org/history
