Nope. I prefer being alone and find being around people to be a nuisance. Even being the slightest bit social burns me out quite a bit since I usually don't have much to say and keeping up conversations is tedious.

I'm not all that social the only people I talk to on a regular basis are my family, girl friend, and a few friends. but I can still socialize if I need to and in the field of work I want to go into talking to other people and interacting with them is a huge part of the job

Social is a word I would never use to describe myself, I'm a hardcore loner for the most part. I normally don't talk to anyone but my friends, and even then I normally opt out of speaking with them in favor of solitude.

Talking really, really exhausts me. But I have periods of racing thoughts and a need to talk to someone, but I'm really not interested in people around here. Questions like "why are you so quiet" or whatever make me feel alienated...

I'm unsociable towards people who I really don't want to talk too but sometimes just unable to feel involved in a conversation. I'm not even social online, i've had one conversation this week... not that I don't care about talking to people though, I just don't choose when I can.

Am a Introvert when it comes to talking to new people, but I can be a an extrovert when talking to people I know really well. If I'm asked to go to a party and I decline, I feel really bad for some reason, it isn't because I declined the offer, it's more that I feel bad about that 'I am declining' the offer, if that makes sense. :P
Other than that, I am not a very outgoing person, I get really nervous talking to people, even online when using voice chats, I get really nervous T_T The only thing about online that makes it a bit easier; is when writing, that's when it's really easy.. I bet if someone were to ask this question out loud in a classroom and we, on this thread were there to hear it and answer, I would probably not speak up, or if I would, you would hear the nervousness in my voice T_T Woops.. getting a bit sidetracked, but that's how I am when it comes to social interaction

I like talking to people when they're around, but I like being on my own, too. I used to be super socially awkward, but I think I've managed to make myself somewhat normal now - though I still almost never initiate conversations. Being an introvert, I can only take a certain amount of human interaction before I get irritated and my brain feels like it's going to explode. Then I have to go off on my own to calm down.

i can be shy and awkward but when forced into social situations everyone says im talkative and easy to have fun with. idk what to make of it. i guess they see it as me being naturally social without realizing im putting ALOT of effort into trying to not only talk about video games and anime or not be clumsy and weird lol

usually i like to just be left to my own in my room 90% of the time and watch anime or play on my xbox

Only when it's imperative to survival. (eg; work) Other than that, I stay in my dungeon.

Matters your description of social.

Do I go out everyday, meet new people, that I will probably soon forget about because I am drinking copious amounts of alcohol?

Am I shut-in who as soon as he does what he HAS to do out in the big old world such as school or work retreats into his little secluded corner of the house not to come out or talk to anyone until he HAS to go back out?



Well no on both accounts, i'm probably in the middle. I have about a dozen or so close-knit friends whom I try to keep in contact with (even if its only like a text or two a week). Past that I still keep in contact (this goes towards monthly to even longer contact) with friends I made in High School or College but going to different Colleges or work separated all of us. I go out about every other week, but this is varied from going to a club downtown to the local pub down the street, both with and without friends.

I'm not super outgoing, but i'm not exactly the type to hide in a corner and wait until the moment that I can leave. I might not always start the conversation, but good luck shutting me up after it is started. Because of this everyone thinks I am highly sociable, which I can't exactly argue with because even I think I am.

But on top of all of this, I don't go to school currently, and I work from home, so other than the people I try to keep in contact with, and the bi-weekly (usually) going out of my house, I am more or less at home, and this has been going on for a year now. I don't necessarily hate it, but well, surprising to what everyone thinks, staying home all day every day with very little changing, it gets boring, FAST, trust me on that.

There's no point in being upset over a personality trait that you can't change. It's like trying to like blue when you like green.



The problem with this society is that it expects people to be a certain way; it's how religion came about--to control the masses and make people do the same thing.
You're expected to obey your parents, be sociable, have a certain amount of friends, go to college, get a job. It's very boring and tiring.


People who follow society's rules are either sheep or imprisoning themselves and thinking they're leading a satisfying life, when they're just fooling themselves.


You don't need to have society's ideal to lead a happy life. You don't need big boobs or small nose or whatever, you don't need to have children to be a good human being.


This world is full of sheep. I'm glad I am individualistic, and I have no desire to change who I am to satisfy what people consider are "the ideals" for them, because I like being myself, thank you very much. I don't care if I don't have table manners, or telephone manners, it's just how I am.

One of the (relatively major) problems with modern society is that it's an extrovert's world - not a bad thing in and of itself, but the problem is that extroversion is considered the 'default' social attitude, so deviating from it is "wrong." Hard to live in a society that rejects you.


I don't think it's much of an extrovert world if we compare it to the past where person to person activities were inevitable for good jobs and social standing. 100 years ago, if you were smart and had charisma, you could work your way up to almost anything. Community were small and being a loner made you more easily shun uponed than today where we posess internet and there is a diploma available for every job imaginable out here. Hell you can even get certification on internet nowadays!

For my part, I consider myself quite social. I used to be shy and uneasy about going out with my friends to one of their friends party or in a club. However, I read in a book (which name I forgot) that" when you're faced with two activities to do, choose the one you never did". And a lot of unexpected fun and meeting new people came out of applying this rule!

I think it's normal to feel more secure by ourselves, but if you're afraid of doing social activities because you consider yourself as anti-social, then I think that all you have to do is go out there and search for a sport club or anything where you will have to mix with others! You'll see, with time, you'll become good at it!

I never laughed until I cried by myself, And everyone deserves it!

Slightly. When I was a child, I was a lot more shy and hesitant to speak to strangers because of it, but I did not want to be that way on that day forth. I encouraged myself to speak up more and to try to greet others in hope of being polite and beginning a conversation, but that idea did not go well as I wanted to. As much as I want to be more of a gregarious individual, many incidents from my past and today have discouraged me from wanting to communicate with more people.

It is probably better this way for me on not wanting to be more social since I am becoming disinterested with wanting to talk and get to know new individuals more and more.
