People who are very shy tend to avoid the situations that cause the most happiness. It is a fact that social situations are the number one source of happiness for happy people. Because social situations are unpleasant for those who have SA, they are being deprived of the single most happy inducing experience. Therefore it is almost ineviteable for someone who has SA to be depressed at least once in a while.

In other words people with SA are likely depressed as well but people who are depressed may not have SA.
