I have to say I was a NEET for like 2 years of my life because of extreme social anxiety. There were periods of time where I wouldn't leave the house for days. Thankfully I have gotten a little better and although I still have social anxiety, I'm working part time and studying now.


For those who don't know what NEET and hikikomori mean:

NEET: A NEET or neet is a young person who is "Not in Education, Employment, or Training".

Hikikomori: The Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare defines hikikomori as people who refuse to leave their house and, thus, isolate themselves from society in their homes for a period exceeding six months.

I was a NEET and a hikikomori between the years of 2009 and 2012.

Now after having been working in the fast food industry for three years I can say that I kind of miss my NEET days. Having money is cool, but the tradeoff is dealing with people.

I am not a NEET or a hikikomori, nor have I ever been one.



She's the only NEET I know.. XD

NEET? Nah, I do go to school online if that counts, and I'm looking for work... or rather a career, but those are hard to come by in my town.

I'm a borderline hikikomori, though, since I only go out twice a week to play DnD and Magic cards. Well, that's not totally true, but I don't do anything meaningful or social otherwise.

I would be both if I could. Problem is I have bills that I must pay. I only leave my home for work or to buy food though. I prefer my peaceful home to anywhere else.

I rarely leave the house.
On my days off from school I just go outside to get the mail.

I guess right now, I could be maybe considered a NEET. I just moved out of state not too long ago and I don't know anyone here and since I don't have a job yet, I rarely leave the house. I also have social anxiety so it's really hard for me to get used to a new place and new people.

I wouldn't go to any of those extremes, but I'm not as social as I want to be. mainly cuz I don't have a car and dislike the neighborhood I live in.

I'm neither but once break hits, hardly never leave my house. The only way I get fresh air is by ventilating my room by opening the windows since I stay inside the entire time. I don't really like socializing with the outside.

Honestly, it's my dream to become one, because I also have severe social anxiety.

Buuuuut.... I know in a society like this it's just not possible.

I'm a NEET, and if I stayed in my house long enough, I could be a hikikomori as well

I guess I could be considered a NEET, but it's because of health issues (that isn't social anxiety). I plan to go back to school. Plus I still hang out with friends when I'm feeling ok.
