Archbishop Whately cured a person of shyness by Saying: " You are shy because you are thinking of the impression you are making. Think only of the plea­sure you can give to others and not of yourself." In speaking of bashfulness he says: " Let both the ex­temporary speaker and the reader of his own com­positions study to avoid, as far as possible, all thoughts of self, earnestly fixing the mind on the matter of what is delivered; and the one will feel the less of that
embarassment which arises from the thought of what opinion the hearers will form of him, while the other will appear to be speaking, because he actually will be speaking, the sentiments, not indeed which at that time first arise in his own mind, but which are then really present to his mind, and occupy his thought." The quickness of perception with regard to all sounds, but those especially which are faint or distant, is much improved by exercise or culture.—Hervey.
