Someone pointed out to me this evening that, although I say that I'm very afraid of being embarrassed, I don't seem to have any trouble talking about some moderately personal things, even with comparative strangers. So of course I had to think about what does embarrass me.

Mostly, it's making mistakes in a social context. I would be deeply embarrassed if I called someone by the wrong name, so it's easier for me to forget names. It's embarrassing when I have to ask someone their name, so I work around that too.

I don't mind talking about my own stupidity, as long as I get to mention it first. (I'm used to working with computers, after all.) Things that would embarrass me to hear someone else say are just part of my self-deprecating style of humor if I say them.

Still not sure how this relates to not making phone calls. That may be something completely different.
