Hello from Ray Crozier.  I am constructing this site with the aim of providing information about my research and publications in the psychology of shyness, blushing and embarrassment. I hope this will be useful to anyone who is interested in these fascinating topics, including researchers, teachers, graduate students and undergraduates. I hope too it will be a valuable source of information to everyone who is anxious about their shyness and blushing.
