Shyness Research InstituteGO FROM BEING SHY TO “SUCCESSFULLY SHY” We'd rather understand shy people than try to change them. Our goal is to help shy individuals to understand and appreciate their shyness so that they learn to take control of it, instead of their shyness controlling them.Decorative Image

What We Do

The Shyness Research Institute at Indiana University Southeast was established in 1997 to promote understanding in the area of shyness. The main function of the institute is help understand the pains and problems of shyness, not to market a cure. Bernardo Carducci, director, has been quoted as saying, “We’d rather understand shy people than change them.” Carducci and the associates at the Institute receive many responses from shy individuals from all over the world. By carefully analyzing these many responses, those at the Shyness Research Institute hope to aid those who are shy in understanding the dynamics of their shyness.
