Shyness worsens "anxiety", suggests the research.
A study of 97 adults in whom very shy people are more likely to become anxious when treating a hangover after a night of alcoholism.
Also revealed that drinking about six units of alcohol reduced anxiety in extremely shy people, who could use alcohol to help release their inhibitions.
Researchers urge people to "accept being shy or introverted," adding "it's OK to keep quiet".

"We know that many people drink to alleviate anxiety in social situations, but this research suggests that this could have rebound consequences the next day, "writer Professor Celia Morgan, of the psychopharmacology unit at the University of Exeter, said.
"Shy individuals are more likely to experience this sometimes debilitating aspect of hangover." 19659010] "These results also suggest that anxiety may in turn be related to people's ability to develop a problem with alcohol.
"It's about accepting being shy or introverted, which could help people in transition to not using heavy alcohol, it's a good thing, it's okay to be quiet."
Researchers participated in a social event to which Participants participated, who were aged between 18 and 53 years.
At the gathering, which was in the participants' homes, they were told to drink or stay sober.
The study was published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences and conducted by Beth Marsh, a research assistant in the division of psychology and language science at UCL.
All participants underwent breathing and completed a questionnaire that assessed their anxiety levels at 6.00pm.
The questions included how far they avoided people they did not know and how uncomfortable they felt in unfamiliar situations.
Half of them were then told to drink normally, before they completed a second anxiety test two hours later.
NUMBER RECORD OF BRITISH WOMEN IS DYING TO CAUSE ALCOHOL
More British women than ever are dying from alcohol-related illnesses, figures revealed at the beginning of this week.
Eight per 100,000 women across the UK die each year due to conditions caused by alcohol, according to data from the Office for National Statistics.
This figure is the highest since the registrations began in 2001 but still below the average of 12.2 deaths and less than half of the 16.8 deaths among men.
Even hard-drink baby boomers are dying young because of their habit. Mortality rates are higher among women between 50 and 50 years.
The largest increase was among people between 75 and 79 years, whose mortality rate increased by 53.6% between 2001 and 2017.
A At 10 am the next morning, the breathlythly test it was repeated and the participants were re-evaluated for signs of anxiety.
He was also asked how often they drink and how he makes them feel the next day, to determine any signs of an alcohol disorder (AUD).
The results revealed a link between shyness and suffering anxiety after a night of drinking, which researchers called "angst".
There was a moderate association between experiencing angst and suffering from an AUD, but only among those in the "high shyness group".
To the surprise of the researchers, the anxiety levels of the participants changed slightly after drinking six units of alcohol.
This contradicts previous studies that found that animals become more nervous when exposed to compound ethanol – the chemical name of alcohol.
Unlike previous studies, this study assessed the effects of alcohol consumption in a social context rather than in a laboratory. The researchers therefore believe that their results are "more reliably representative of the effects of real alcohol".
"While alcohol consumption is actually decreasing, there are still 600,000 dependent drinkers in the UK," Marsh research assistant said. [19659002""Ementrelations"showcasingwell-knownpeoplewhoenjoythelow-skilledandwell-nourishedpeoplewhowanttofindoutaboutpeople"
. They add that the results suggest that shy people should be more targeted during campaigns such as "January Dry", which encourage us to re-evaluate our relationship with alcohol.
Shyness shares many traits with AUD, including sweating, concern for others' opinions, high heart rate and avoiding socialization.
However, shyness, which is thought to affect between 20 and 40 percent of people, is less severe than AUD.
Shy people may therefore be more likely to socialize and may use alcohol to make them less inhibited.
Problem drinkers have previously obtained higher scores on shyness measures, which suggests a link between the stroke and the alcohol.
