    In classes I don't like putting my hand up and speaking because I can't be bothered, I just like taking everything in and I can be kind of shy

    but when I have to present and speak in front of an audience i'm much more confident and enjoy it

    confidence isn't just a spectrum, it's like a flaming Rubik's cube

    Sounds perfectly normal to me! People are so much more complicated than identifying as one feeling or personality trait because we're all different and have different experiences! I'm exactly the same, I can be really shy in lessons and at other times really confident and bubbly- it just depends on the environment and the situation I'm in. Most people aren't always mega confident and even the most outgoing people have probably been shy at some point. Don't worry about labels, just keep doing you and being yourself! x

    Im the same, if im speaking in front of a dozen people I'm shy ~ let me speak in front of a couple hundred, and I suddenly get really charismatic

    I tend to just whisper answers just in case it's wrong and I don't want to seem stupid so I'm not too bad answering questions in class. However when it comes to presentations in front of 5 people or 50 people, I get nervous.
