Are shy people considered to be lacking confidence and insecure?

Yes, shy people do lack confidence but that doesn't mean they would be insecure. Not necessary.
Insecurity and confidence are not necessarily connected with one another.
I don't think that just because one is shy, they are insecure. They might be lacking some confidence though.
Yes I know because it happens to me all the time people always say that about me
Because it’s a stereotype we usually give people because we see it in movies
Lacking confidence, probably. But insecure, hmm not so sure.

Nah. I wouldn't confuse shy with insecure..
Often times, yes
No self a steam
i'm considered a shy guy and the crazy thing is that i have less insecurities than those outgoing folks around me. i mean even though people think i'm shy i still do better at things like public speaking. i think in my case the problem is lack of social skills. i'm not really comfortable around certain people and not eager to start or have conversations with them and people always put it down to shyness without considering other possibilities. i know there are many so called shy people out there who just don't have social skills. the truth is we all have lots of insecurities but some people think that they can overcome those insecurities by denying them and being excessively sociable.
