I would argue that I have benefited, as a shy person, from human interactions in other social settings. The reasoning for this, is that it forces you to interact with other people and lose some of the anxiety you face. It really depends on the degree of shyness one experiences. If one is paralyzed with fear, than that is a problem that does need some help from a mental health professional professional. He is certainly right that people need to show compassion and empathy, but I think shy people often have more compassion and empathy because they are often victims of a lot judgement here. Frankly, it might be good for others who are not shy to perhaps show some empathy for those of us who and encourage people to improve.
