Abstract: 

This research explored the relationship between shyness and communication skills, the gender differences in these two constructs, and the differences in communication skills between shy and non-shy individuals. 115 female and 69 male Shiraz university students completed the Revised Communication Skills Test (Queendom, 2004) and the Shyness Scale (Cheek & Buss, 1981). Findings showed a significant negative correlation between shyness and communication skills (r = -0.35, P < 0.0001). Gender differences in shyness were significant (t = -2.3, P < 0.02), females being shyer than males. No gender differences were observed in communication skills. The differences in communication skills between sky and non-shy individuals were significant (t = 4.25, P < 0.0001).
