In our HELP! SITUATION SPOTLIGHT™ series, we shine the light on challenges that community members have shared with me. This episode is, “I Am Shy but People Think I Am ‘Stuck-Up’ and a ‘Snob!’ What should I do?”
Some people feel very comfortable sharing a lot of personal information about themselves, with large amounts of people very soon after meeting them. That is great! Other people may calculate what what personal information they share, how much they share, how many people they share it with and how long it will take for them to share. That is also great!
The challenge is that some cultures and settings have expectations that are not met by individuals. What that occurs, there may be a resulting negative outcome to the non-conforming individuals. If someone exceeds the expected quantity and quality of expected personal information, they may accused of “TMI” (too much information) or being “crude” or “having a big mouth.” If someone does not meet the minimum expected quantity and quality of expected personal information, they may be accused of being “stuck-up”, a “snob” or “thinking they are better than other people.” For shy individuals it is more often the latter situation that takes place.
The shy person is warm, friendly and engaging! They just calculate how much personal information to share, when to share and whom to share it with differently than others. They are more conservative with their feelings and expressing private information and beliefs (full disclosure, I am very shy).
My suggested tips are: 1) Active listening (eye contact, body language turned toward the speaker, supportive vocalizations, etc.), 2) Ask multiple follow-up questions of the speaker and 3) In some instances it may be helpful to explicitly state to people, “I am shy.”
Rated G Radio is LIVE Tuesday 10pE/7pW when author Frank Spinelli talk his latest book PEE-SHY!
In his stunningly honest and poignant memoir, Frank Spinelli recounts a childhood marked by trauma and of finding the courage that ultimately transformed his life…
Frank Spinelli grew up on Staten Island in the 1970s to Italian-born parents who viewed cops and priests as second only to the Pope in infallibility. His mother, concerned that her son was being bullied at school for being “different,” signed Frank up for Boy Scouts when he turned eleven. For the next two years, Frank’s life had two realities—one lived in full view of his family, and the other a secret he shared with his Scoutmaster that he couldn’t confess to anybody.
Eventually Frank went to college, established a thriving medical practice, and found a home in Manhattan. But the emotional and physical effects of his past continued to shadow every aspect of his life. Then a shocking discovery gave Frank the opportunity to overturn thirty years of confusion and self-blame—for himself, and for other boys like him.
Pee-Shy is a remarkable story of overcoming the unimaginable to choose resilience over darkness, and love over loss.
“This is a memoir about a grown-up boy’s generous—and healing—heart.”—Kevin Sessums
“This is one of those horrific, true stories that Dr. Spinelli so courageously reveals. With raw honesty he makes us understand that monsters do exist and a child's innocence is precious. His story is one of too many, but maybe, this one will help open our eyes a little more and shine a light on a taboo subject that many chose not to see or believe.” —Whoopi Goldberg

Full Force, a part of our musical legacy that is filled with so much color and flavor; a cornicopia of sound so rich it could never be forgotten.
Eleven albums, countless hit singles and three decades ago, the six man collective known as Full Force was just another family with aspirations of making it big in the music industry. All native New Yorkers, the brothers Bowlegged Lou, Paul Anthony and B-Fine, along with their three cousins, Shy Shy, Curt T-T and Baby Gerry, boasted limitless talent as producers, songwriters and performers, but struggled to find a label home that would allow them to flourish.
Having a 3 decade career doesn't come with its share of trials. However, having the opportunity to overcome is the greatest blessing of all. Not only have they endured Full Force has a new project "Tru Skool All-Star Project." They will be with us LIVE!!!!!!! Join us to learn more.
