Only 15 to 20 percent of us fit the stereotype of the shy person--someone who is visibly uncomfortable with other people.


Hi,
Is it proper to view "fit" in the above as "meet?" Thanks.

    We would have to add more to the sentence were we to use 'meet' instead of 'fit':

    Only 15 to 20 percent of us meet the criteria of the stereotypical shy person.
