And I always thought I am shy....
You Are Assertive
You assert yourself whenever it's necessary, but you're always polite and appropriate about it.
You're not a bully, a manipulator, or a nag. You just state what you need quickly and honestly.
You've been assertive for so long that it just comes naturally to you. You're definitely not shy.
People wonder why you get what you want in life. Well, it's because you ask for it!
