On the Difference Between Introversion and Social Anxiety

If you’ve been reading past blog entries, you know that I have touched on the distinction between problematic social anxiety and introversion before. The difference between the two is subtle but important. Sometimes people assume that social anxiety is simply another word for shyness. But they are, in fact, two very different concepts and it’s important to understand that distinction in order to best identify your own experiences. I recently discussed that difference with a colleague.
