I for one have said many times that Petra's not necessarily shy. That's just a Media Meme, from the small town girl from Fulnek/Bilovec Czech Republic theme.
Petra loves the spotlight--when she wants to (Gala's, Award Shows, Pressers after good wins, etc.). Plus she can be very friendly and cordial.
Like any other normal person, Petra likes her privacy as well (she's not a total extrovert, attention seeker or has a PR manufactured persona--like some others), when she's busy or during her private time, which some confuse with being shy.
