The science behind shyness, an "affliction" shared by 30% of the population (the lurkers in real life). Reminds of the fantastic Caring for Your Introvert from The Atlantic Monthly a couple of years ago. Sadly, the article has disappeared behind the Atlantic's pay wall, but I posted a short excerpt here.

Update: The complete Caring for Your Introvert article is available on the author's web site. (thx chris and several others)
