Timidity is the quality of being timid or shy. Timidity means lack of boldness or confidence. Someone who is very shy and keeps his feelings to himself is said to be timid. Timidity is not considered as a positive personality trait since it also makes you introvert and reserved in speech. In the words of Sydney Smith, “A great deal of talent is lost to the world for want of a little courage. Every day sends to their graves obscure men whose timidity prevented them from making a first effort.” In today’s world, you need to be bold and strong enough to make things happen. If you stay shy and timid, you’ll be ultimately exploited and put down by people. Timidity is generally a feeling that is associated with girls.
