The present study aims to identify the relationship between shyness and problems among adolescents. A total of 600 adolescent boys and girls were randomly selected from in and around Mysore city. They were administered DSouzas Shyness Assessment test and a problem checklist. Shyness of adolescents was measured in Cognitive/Affective, Physiological and Action oriented domains. Problem check list measured adolescent problems in 11 different areas. The results revealed that as the shyness levels in cognitive, physiological and action oriented domains increased, adolescent problems also increased linearly and signifi cantly. As the total shyness levels increased, again it was found that adolescent problems also increased linearly and signifi cantly. Lastly, regression analysis revealed that health and physical development, adjustment to school work, home and family, moral and religion problems were the major predictors of shyness
