How to use status in Project JIRA?

Does it affect projects using the same status in their workflows?

Would only like to confirm, but currently our workflow is not shared.

If you change the name of the status under Admin -> Issues -> Statuses, then yes it will affect the way it appears on the other workflows.

If you go to add a status to your workflow, (<Workflow> -> Edit -> Add Status) and you start typing the name of an existing status, you will be able to use it in your workflow. All of the Transitions to and from, validators, conditions, and post-functions will be specific to your workflow and will not affect other workflows that may use the same status.

Did this answer your question or did I miss what you are asking?

Thank you Stephen for providing your inputs. Very much appreciated.
