The main purposes of this research was to investigate the shyness of implicit and explicit measures of shyness using a double dissociation design. In the pilot study, 10 shyness and non-shyness words were chosen respectively through evaluative procedures, which were for subsequent implicit association test (IAT) of shyness. In the main study, we aims to assess the explicit shyness, implicit shyness, and shy behaviors, and explored the role of social desirability in implicit and explicit measures of the shyness. The results suggested that shyness IAT is unrelated to the explicit shyness measure and the social desirability scale. It means that IAT is not avoid the being influenced by social desirability, and were affected the same way on Chinese and Western participants. Moreover, that shyness IAT and explicit shyness are two different constructs. With regard to the shy behaviors, results suggested it show that the IAT of shyness effect is significantly correlated to unconscious and automatic shy behaviors (implicit behaviors) of the participants (such as face adaptors), whereas explicit shyness assessment is significantly correlated to conscious and controlled shy behaviors (explicit behaviors, such as smiling). These results support that the shyness constructs in explicit and implicit assessments are different.
