BRASH, over-confident people almost always describe themselves as shy, it has emerged.
Researchers at the Institute for Studies found that 89 per cent of loud individuals claim to be ‘actually really shy’ or ‘quiet’.
Professor Henry Brubaker of the Institute for Studies said: “Noisy people love to describe themselves as shy because it makes them seem as if they have some vulnerability and emotional depth.
“It’s bollocks though.”
Extrovert Nikki Hollis said: “Just because I shout ‘YO IT’S ME BITCHES’ whenever I enter a room and will sit on strangers’ laps when sober, people assume I’m really confident.
“But I’m actually quiet and shy. Almost timid.
“I read a book recently and I was quiet the whole time, like one of those nerd kids that I used to pick on at school.”
Overbearing internet entrepreneur Wayne Hayes said: “I sacked eight people yesterday in front of their colleagues, and called them ‘useless shitbags’ just to make an example.
“I’ve had a lack of confidence ever since my teenage years when I was a catalogue model and captain of all the sports teams. But I’m really good at concealing it, which I would perhaps feel was quite brilliant if I wasn’t such a modest little thing.”
