Kendall Jenner regularly strips down for Calvin Klein ads, magazine covers and photo shoots – but the supermodel actually describes herself as “more introverted.”

In a new post on her website and app shared Tuesday, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star opened up about “how I handle my shyness.”

“Growing up, I didn’t care that I was shy. I never really cared – I just went with it,” she wrote. “And in some ways, I kind of liked it.”

Jenner, 20, is perhaps the most reserved of the Kardashian-Jenner clan and explained that all of her sisters “are much louder” than she is, so growing up, “it was OK that I didn’t have as much to say.”

“Well, it’s not that I didn’t have that much to say – I just kept it to myself,” she clarified.

“When I think something, I don’t usually say it, which is fine. It’s more that I’m introverted,” she continued. “I never had anxiety about it. I knew it was part of who I am and I owned it.”

Jenner went on to describe how she has worked on being more outspoken since becoming a model.

“I still get really shy easily. But, being in this industry, surrounded by so many people all the time – going to parties and having to turn it on or off – I can almost flip it like a switch now,” she wrote.

Of course, she admitted the nerves do kick in around certain people.

“I only get shy if I’m around people who make me nervous, which I guess is normal,” she said. “I’m still not much of a talker, but I do know how to converse and communicate. I’ve grown out of it a little bit for sure, but I think that was bound to happen.”

Indeed, Jenner’s sisters would tend to agree with her: In a recent post on her website and app, Khloé Kardashian praised Jenner for being the most “private” of the sisters.

“Even though she’s young … she knows the value of keeping things quiet,” said Kardashian, 31. “She’s really reserved in her relationships and I think we could all learn something from Kendall.”
