Relations between shyness, sociability and various dimensions of social support were studied in a sample of 267 participants (151 females and 116 males). The age of the subjects was 19–49. Shyness and sociability appeared significant predictors of perceived social support. Sociable people generally perceived more social support than unsociable people both from relatives and colleagues. However shyness was not a predictor of perception of social support from close persons negatively influenced the perception of possibility of help from more distant persons. Shy-sociable were rarely in intimate partnerships which were an important source of support and protected from stress.
