Ryan was a fussy infant and did not respond well to strangers. As he grew, he continued to be shy and uncomfortable around new people. As an adult, he still feels awkward in social situations that involve a lot of people. How would a maturational theorist explain Ryan's trajectory?

▸ As a result of mostly genetic factors, Ryan has a shy temperament and will continue to behave in a socially inhibited manner throughout his life.

▸ Ryan's surroundings, including his family, school, neighborhood, and community, all significantly affected his development and contributed to his feelings of shyness from a very young age.

▸ Ryan has failed to pick up on important social cues throughout his life, making social interaction less rewarding.

▸ Early in his life, Ryan failed to acquire trust with his caretakers. This early event influenced his development into adulthood.
