I'm an introvert but not in the manner that I am shy. I used to be shy when I was younger but I learned to get over that. Now, I keep to myself because I am much more careful when it comes to opening up to people. It truly depends on the situation.
I am mostly an introverted: I feel better and speak more fluently when I am in small groups and/or with people who I know.
By the way, weird thing is my situation: in my culture (generally talking, for sure), being introverted is not very well seen, the people are not sympathetic to this aspect of personality. Often they think (or suspect) someone like that can have any kind of psychological problem, disorder etc.
