Cyan Ta’eed, guest blogging over at Zen Habits wrote an interesting post about Shyness — Eight Essential Tips to Overcoming Shyness and Making a Good Impression.
1. Introduce Yourself
2. Don’t Feel the Need to Qualify Yourself.
3. Ask More, Talk Less.
4. Be Generous.
5. Don’t Judge a Book By Its Cover.
6. Remember a Detail.
7. Compliment Others.
8. Think of Others.
With the advent of blogging and podcasting, the new social media, and all the online interaction among folks around the world, I think that in many ways people are less shy than ever. With these new tools, I think many who have thought themselves as shy are now empowered in a whole new way. Maybe I’m wrong. I’d love to know what AW readers think.
If you happen to be shy, do you think that blogging (or podcasting) has made you less so? We would love to hear your thoughts.
