Using Symbolic Interactionist theories and descriptions of the everyday life of self-defined 'shy' people, the book explores the social processes of becoming a 'shy person' and performing the shy self in public places. The question of interactional competence is discussed in relation to issues of identity, embodiment, performativity and deviance.
