Title  of  the  study:  A case  study on  a  shy and  introvert  student  named XYZ

Name of the investigator: ABC

 

Abstract:

A case study is an intensive, holistic description and analysis of a single social unit such as an individual, a  group, an institution or a community. It is necessary to perform a case study in order to find out problems existing among the students in an educational institution.

This study refers to a student named XYZ studying in 7th  standard in XYZ English School. During my four months internship period of B.Ed 2nd  year in ABC English School, I had observed that the boy XYZ of  class  VII  always  wants  to  seat  on  the  back  bench.

I  did  not  see him  to communicate  with  other  students.  I  noticed  that  the  boy  tends  to  be  slow  to warm  up  in  social  situation.  I  also  noticed  that  he  is  always  late  in  reaching school.   He   faces   difficulties   in   meeting   people,   initiating   and   maintains conversation.

He was unable to give any answer of any question properly. He always tried to stay alone and did not show any interest to make friendship with other  students.  Even  he  did  not  go  to  participate  in  any  competition  or  co- curricular activities. Therefore to know the reasons behind his problems, I have taken  up this  study so  that  I  can help him  to deal  with his  problems  and  can show better performance in his academic career.

Background:

During the four months internship period in XYZ English School, I have noticed that a boy named XYZ of class VII always used to seat in the last bench of the classroom and he hardly communicate  with teachers and other classmates.

Though he is attentive in the class, he was unable to perform any academic  tasks  given  or  the  questions  asked  in the  class. Because  of  this shy  nature  he  always  wanted  to  stay  alone.  Shyness  and  introvert  both  are different psychological traits of human being.

Shyness is a psychological state that  causes  a  person  to  feel  discomfort  in  social  situations  and  that  cause avoidance  of  social  contacts.  Introvert  is  another  psychological  state  that describes a person who tends to turn inward mentally.

The behaviour of the boy in the class made me have an assumption of falling him in the category of shy and introvert. After a few observations I was confident about his nature who is unable to share his problems neither  with his classmate nor  with his teachers. This is the rationale behind identifying this boy to study up and to help him to deal with his problems has been suffering for so long.

 

Case History:

I  visited his  home  and  talked with  his parents.  His  parents  were  very responsive and cooperatively answered my questions.

Physical Status:

Physically the boy is fit and healthy, but he has acne problem in his face and  other  than  that  he  has  same  common  health  issues  which  are  natural  for human being. Because of acne problem his classmates teases him. This may be a  reason  due  to  which  he  feels  shy  and  lack  of  confidence  to  interact  with others.

 

Mental Status:

He is not mentally so sound. He is unable to read his text books properly and confidently. He always tends to stay alone and gets mentally disturbed or easily panicked whenever he was asked any questions.

Family:

The boy XYZ belongs to a middle class family. His father’s name is  XYZ  and  mother’s  name  is  ABC.  He  stays  with  his parents  and  younger  brother.  His  father  is  a  businessmen  and  mother  is housewife.

His parents are aware about his introvert nature but they are not so much concerned about his problems. They do not facilitate him any exercise or practise because of lack of knowledge about his condition. At his home also he talks  very less and always  likes to stay alone. So, he has  very less interaction with his family members.

 

School:

XYZ is a student of class VII, XYZ English School. His position in the class is low. His roll number in class is 21. Before getting admission  in  the  school  in  class  VI,  he  studied  in  XYZ  English  Medium School. His previous school authority apprises XYZ’s parents about his less interaction with teachers and other students and about his low performance in  class.

Due  to  this  reason  his  parents  withdraw  his  studentship  from  that school and admitted him in class VI in XYZ English School. In the class room he wants to stay alone, always sits on the last bench. Even in the leisure time  he  uses  to  stay  alone  and  does  not  share  his  food  with  other  students.

Sometimes he does not pay attention in the  classroom and he  is seen to think something else.  He  hardly participates  in  extra-curricular  activities.  Basically, he does not show any interest to participate in any competition like games, quiz, debate,   drawing   competitions.   He   feels   hesitation   to   participate   in   any competition.

FINDINGS AND SUGGESTIONS

Findings:

From the above discussions, I have found that there are many causes of his  shyness  and  introvert  nature  which  hinder  him  in  the  development  of  his personality –

  • Feeling of inferiority complex could lead to shyness and introvert nature.
  • Lack of social  skills  and  non-participation  makes  him  inhabited  around others and make him shy and introvert.
  • Lack of   communication  and   friendly  relation   with  his   parents   and teachers makes him shy and introvert.
  • Lack of  awareness  and  responsibility  of  his  parents  towards  him  make him shy and introvert.
  • Less expressiveness makes him shy and introvert.
  • Mental weakness may also lead to shyness and introvert nature.

 

Suggestions:

  • Parents should motivate him to talk or communicate with others.
  • It is the duty of the teachers to make him feel secure during classes and teachers should encourage him to make friendship with other students.
  • Parents should be  aware  of  the  behaviour  of  other  students  of  the  class towards  him.  So,  they  should  connect  with  the  school  as  much  as  they can.
  • Special attention  should  be  given  to  his  mental  development  by  his parents and teachers.
  • Parents  should take  him to the psychiatrist for  his low confidence and introvert nature.
    Special attention  should  be  given  by  his  parents  towards  his  extra- curricular activities.
  • Teachers of the school should give special attention in some context. If he is not co-operating with teachers in class, then they should apply different methods to make him strong.
  • Sometimes remedial  classes  should  be  taken  for  him  at  school  by  the teachers.

 

CONCLUSIVE REMARKS

This study is basically about a student of 13 years of age who is studying in class VII of XYZ English School. Through this study, I have tried to find out the problems that the boy is dealing with. During the four months of my internship period, I have come across about his shy and introvert nature.

From his family members I have come to know that the boy is very shy and introvert in  nature  from  his  childhood.  In  this  study,  I  have  find  out  some  possible reasons for his shy and introvert nature and also I have given some suggestions and recommendations of his problem through which he can overcome from his problem and can achieve a better future.
