Example text

Particularly in today's increasingly free sexual atmosphere, many parents and teachers wish that love-shyness would become a great deal more commonplace than it now is. In essence, many people fear freedom and choice. Indeed, many people believe that humanity is not sufficiently evolved as yet for its members to be able to responsibly handle very much freedom of choice— hence, the proliferation in the popularity of very strict, fundamentalistic religious organizations. What such parents and teachers fail to realize is that there is a very big difference between enlightened self-discipline and love-shyness.

A representative sample of over 300 students was taken, and thousands of correlation figures were obtained. A correlation coefficient is simply a barometer as to how strongly or closely two factors are associated with each other. Of the thousands of correlation coefficients my study produced, the strongest one of all was the one relating the following two variables: a. Degree of personal satisfaction and contentment with the amount of informal boy/girl interaction engaged in of late. b. General happiness with life.

In essence, shyness itself is indeed learned; but severe and chronic forms of it are learned primarily as a direct result of two dimensions of temperament called inhibition and emotionality (low anxiety threshold) which ARE INBORN and genetically rooted. As author of this book I have an extensive knowledge and understanding of BOTH kinds of research literature: (1) that which has focused upon learning, AND (2) that which has focused upon inborn, biologically based considerations. The extensive bibliography that is provided at the end of this book should provide the reader with some idea of the balanced perspective which this book has endeavored to represent.
