I'm a very shy and quiet person myself. It takes a while for me to open up to people.
I don't feel the need to talk to people, and I don't think smiling does much for me. I'm not sure why I'm so quiet.

Loud people tend to annoy me, honestly. I don't like it when they smile for no reason, it makes it seem fake.

i myself, am this "shy person" in class i just sit there and listen to the teacher because when people talk to me i get easily distracted and can't concentrate. from times in class i would just watch other students who are in front of me as well, and from watching them u get a feeling of who they are EXCEPT the quiet and shy people out there, they are so hard to read and mysterious i just can't figure them out. i am also quiet because sometimes i say things which hurt others since i apparently dont think before i speak sometimes so, it became a habit of mine to just shut up and watch. its not like i have a secret agenda or something to hide, shy and quiet people are themselves and like everyone else are comfortable the way they are (or i am). an example could be when people talk for no reason, this pretty much tells others who you are like if you're a snooty brat or kind person, i myself dont care and entitled to my own opinion of others as well as myself. so some advice to trying to approach a shy person, id say go ahead see whats gonna happen it might end up positive like you're helping them out of their shell or negative like you became the new best friend of some obsessed freak. a shy and quiet person is any other person out there ;D

i have no problem with shy, quiet people because i'm that way.. perhaps to so lol
but you can only be you.. if people can't accept you for you.. its their problem and you're probably better off without them
plus many those points are stereotypical, a quiet, shy person can be more social around a person they are very comfortable with and even more fun than a highly social person... it does depend on the person... but if someone wont give the patience to get to know you, then they will always think bad or pitying thoughts
also those who are depressed may well be that way due to the harsh judgement by the non shys...

How do act act toward them? Do you think they are stuck up, because they don't talk to you?
Do you think they are smart or smarter because they are quiet in class, unlike almost everyone else? Do you think they are depressing or weird or even crazy?
Do you feel like you have to act differently around them because they're different?
Do you feel bad for them? Do you try to talk to them because you feel bad for them?
Do you judge them harder or think about them differently because they are shy or quiet?


Sorry for all the questions but I'm just very curious about this, mostly because I'm shy and quiet (basically just introverted, though). I just don't understand why shy and quiet people get the bad rap because we don't talk all the time like everyone else. We can be social and outgoing if you get to know us better. And we're not always the ones that shoot up the school. It can be the ones that act normal when they're actually about to explode inside.

I also really hate when people are constantly asking me why I'm so quite. Asking me 50 million times doesn't mean I'm going to answer. And then everyone has to comment on how I'm so shy or quite for 5 minutes. Yes I know I'm shy and don't talk to people, but do you really have to tell me any chance you get? Does anyone else feel like this?






i feel your pain...

let me demonstrate my usual conversation with the people i talk to.

anonymous: hi there
me: hi
anon: yeah so how you doin?
me: good
anon: oh, thats good....
..... <awkward silence>
anon: so where are you from?
me: *******
anon: oh i see........
..... <awkward silence>
anon: so what grade are you in?
me: 11th
anon: what school do you go to?
me: ***********
anon: my nephew goes there too!
..... <awkward silence>
anon: so hows your day?
me: good
anon: oh....
..... <awkward silence>

:) hahahahah i just talk when im asked a question, and i make my answers as short as possible.

im extremely shy and self conscious. i have zero self esteem and i always think negatively of myself. sometimes i feel like people look down on me and pity me. :U .... gosh.

Yeah, I get that a lot by people, mostly because I don't talk to others. People are always misjudging my character, and I always seem to cause animosity when around others, even though they have no reason to dislike me.

I've also been called "snotty" or "stuck up", and have recieved "pitty talks" from my peers as if I'm some type of scared kitten in need of comfret. I've also been asked hundreds of times "why are you so quiet?" or "why don't you smile?" To be honest, I don't owe the world anything, and if I smile than it's for myself. People don't know anything about me, yet I'm easily judged.

If I smile too much than I'm hiding something.
If I'm too nice, than I'm taken advantage of.

So I figured to fuck everyone else and just be who I am.



Damn....it's as if you took almost everything I wanted to type here out of my head. We echo the same opinions here, because it's ridiculoius how you have to smile 24/7 or laugh at just about everything these days. I don't smile or show happiness towards anyone except an extremly small number of people in my life because I trust them.

I'm my own person, not this Mr. Rogers Neighborhood sheep-like clone of the so-called average mainstream american. Ether people except what they see, or they can fuck off. That's just the way it is with me.

So yes, I'm quiet, I'm shy at times, and yes i'm a loner.

Well I'm mostly a shy person so I can tell where you're coming from... When I'm around new people it seems as though any conversations that begin end in an awkward silence unless we can really relate to each other. Others probably think I'm a nerd or something just because I don't like to talk of anything they like.

But anywho unless you emit a dorky/ugly aura most people will talk to shy people in the end. Nothing wrong with people.. they aren't depressed or weird.. That's just their personality and people understand that.

I would be classify as a shy and quiet person, and I am the way I am because of my past. Since I was little kid, I have been a very talkative person. Sometimes my teacher would have to ask me to sit next to another person to stop me from talking. Although one time one of my teacher told my friend to stop talking to me even during recess (because I talked during class time), I have started to talk less in classes. My friend dropped our from this school, so I don't feel like talking anymore. One of my friend got jealous of me for being more popular in school, so she commanded me to stop talking to one of our friends, or she would not be my friend. Yeah I do not really talk because I have a bad experiences of people taking my friends away from me, because I do not like the feeling of loosing a friend. So if I have not make some one to be my close friend, then I would not lose them. At some point, I would get tired making friends and have jealousy to ruin it, so jealousy is unnecessary so please for love. Although I still manage to make friends, people are humans with social needs. Every one has a interesting personality waiting for people to discover. ^ o ^ When I want to get a job, I would be more talkative.

I am a pretty quiet person. I don't like to speak unless I am being asked a question, or if I have something important to say.

I don't see why people think its weird. When you're a kid, you're only supposed to speak when spoken to, but then when you're an adult, you're supposed to do nothing but talk? Make up your mind, society.

Mmm.. I think there are different reasons for people to be shy and/or quiet. For me, i'm a people watcher/listener. I won't talk much unless I know the people around me really well.. then I think I talk too much! I use to try and ask them why they are shy/quiet, but now I just find ways to start a conversation. If they really don't want to talk, then I'll just let it go. I don't get mad at them, they just have other things on their mind. I don't think they are smarter, as I know a few who are extremely shy/quiet and yet they are failing half their classes.

One thing I do now though.. whenever I encounter someone who exudes a depressive mood.. is to let them know I'm there for them. I made a mistake once before, and even though there were plenty others involved, I couldn't help but feel like I didn't do enough. I'd rather look stupid and be wrong than to even think that I have (more) blood on my hands.
