Certificate Mentioned "Shy" in LoR!

Hi all....I just got my LOR...everything written was gr8 except last few lines line which were :"although he was somewhat shy and reserved, he interacted well with other house-staff....etc......''

Do u think it these traits are negative? will they affect my application??
