I'd love to join the Army (as a Radar Operator or Sound Ranger in Royal Artillery, failing that MLRS or AS90), but I am quite a shy and quiet person, and don't have a lot of confidence. One of my reasons for wanting to join is to get more confidence in myself. Will this be a problem in selection, basic, army life? I'm guessing the situation that you're put in will force you to make friends, especially in basic, but what about selection? Will they fail me for being too quiet? I'm gonna go down the Recruitment Office on Thursday morning anyway, so will mention it to the recruiter, but would like some advice from here too. Cheers!
