    Sometimes I can't work out if I'm shy or unsociable because it seems like a very fine line between it. How would you distinguish between the two? Because they have very similar traits.

    Shy - wants to interact with others but is too quite and embaressed.

    Unsociable - doesn't want to interact with others.

    Well if that's anything to go by I am shy.

    But I'm trying to work out the mindset of someone who would not want to interact with others? Why would this be the case?

    Shy is just being quiet, and not participating in conversations even though you want to..But you're worried that people won't agree with what you say, or you just don't feel comfortable.

    Unsociable is not going out with people in the first place let alone not participating in a conversation.
