Can you be born shy?

I , personally, think so. If anyone was "born shy" it was me, though I overcame it later in life. But all throughout my childhood I was painfully shy and quiet. Now, as a parent, two of my children are extremely shy, despite the fact that they've watched me being sociable, starting conversations and basically being friendly to strangers. In other words, I don't think it always has to do with how a child is raised...some children are just naturally shy!

wrong! no u can not. if u wer, u wud die. u wud not be crying cuz ur shy, but if ur not crying,,UR DEAD! ha! wut now looser.
