Someone who is naturally shy may want to lose his / her inhibitions by indulging a bit in alcohol. The freedom from shyness and anxiety and the feeling of being free from personal emotions is also accompanied by the occasional and often seen lack of judgment that causes him to befriend a bit too much everyone at the party and that can be called a happy drunk. To put it bluntly the normally angry person who would always try to control his indignation would temporarily drop that control when drunk and would become enraged and on occasion explosive.
