as a result, I have no social or love life to speak of, but I prefer it that way, no emotional attachments, I like my world of books, anime, martial arts, and learning how to "dispatch" people, and I stay imersed in it in hopes of becoming a very proficient assassin one day

Strangely enough, girls seem interested in me because I seem to not to want to have anything to do with them


I hope you aren't serious about the assassin part....

I am not shy and I've been told by plenty of people that I am very extroverted HOWEVER these people are delusional. The people who label me an extrovert do not understand or know me at all. My extroverted personality is simply my public mask. I live in society, so I need to be able to function in it. Work requires that I know how to be polite and kiss ass.

As for friends, I am very selective concerning my friends. I love socializing but only when I am doing so with my "friends". I hate all other types of socializing (I'm referring to work-related crap here) because frankly, being polite or politically correct bores the hell out of me. I think it's a huge waste of time and energy. I'd rather be unabashedly blunt and brutal and stupid when I feel like it.

Socializing requires playing nice and playing nice tires me out. I'm not saying that I'm not nice, it's simply that I don't particularly care for most people and their idea of interesting or intellectual conversation. I'm not sure if this is b/c most people are idiots or b/c I am overwhelmingly conceited. It's probably a bit of both.

As for parties, I don't mind parties so much b/c it helps me network and I am greedy and materialistic enough to realize that such things are necessary in order to garner financial stability and or freedom. Also, you can't complain about free food and alcohol and I love dancing.

Also, I'm a pro at extricating myself from conversations I don't want to take part in. The only time this fails is when I am with my younger siblings whose conversation is somewhat lacking. On the plus side, I don't have to be polite with them.

So I guess you could say I'm a happy balance. What it comes down to is I don't really care enough about other people therefore their flaws don't bother me all that much as there are very few people I hold in high regard.

Anyways, shit, that was a long post!

im a bit of an introvert too. i dont have close friends but im ok with it. basically i stay home or go somewhere with my mom on the weekends - never with my friends. its not that i hate them, just that i dont feel comfortable in social activities. i hate dances, going to parties, etc. other than that, in school i try to be approachable - i mean i dont want to be seen as someone whos cold.

im an introvert i like to be by myself most of the time ^.^ or with one over person
big crowds make me feel small and unexisting...
im very shy round new people so i always make a bad first impression
and have been told im quite timid but if anyones to blame its my horrible family :\
but i have lots of friends who have always been there for me and i do go out to gigs and clubbing with mates but some days id prefer to sit at home or go the library and read a book =)

i'm amazed...know what..that's exactly what i wanna bacome, but for reason..i can't...part of me already has emotions, another part is already attached to everyone around me and honestly it sucks!! but there's still part of me that wants to kill....
it's hard to have so many personalities....it can't be helped....

15jombi: I'd say that im an x trovert character...yeah I've got feelings and interests towards others not just to myself. Hmmm.. is that a good thing or a bad thing ??

Note from Josey: I let my friend on my account, and he began posting accidentally o.O though, he's earned me some points...

I'm most likely Introvert, but I don't that matters.

I'm an introvert. It's sad but that's the truth. I hate going out for social gatherings, parties, clubs, whatever activities that involves a huge group of people.

I always have a hard time mixing around, expecially with strangers. When facing them, I usually don't know what to say to them or rather, having difficulties finding a topic for conversations. Besides, I always have a certain fear for rejection and the assumptions that I will always be the outcast.

Besides all that, I still prefer spending my time with my favourite books, games, movies/animes than having an outing. People call it "No life" but to me, this is life; doing the things I love to do.

I am an introverted person, not to an extreme but more or less. I do not like going to social gathering or parties or clubs with a lot of people and prefer to stay at home. The main reason for this is that I have anxiety attacks and tend to end up sweating uncontrollably and my body gets very cold. It's almost like have a nervous breakdown.
I do have some friends but I do not like to be around them when it's a group and prefer to only see one of them at a time.
You may have social anxiety disorder. No worries as it's listed in top five most common psychological conditions in the world.

It applies to three major "social" activities: Public speaking, public performance (e.g. "stage fright", exams, interviews, etc.), and socialising. It's so common that many tend to label it as 'shyness' when in many cases, it's not. Shyness and social anxiety are two related but significantly different creatures.

Social anxiety has a range of degrees, ranging from a mild case of having "butterflies" in stomach to being a recluse (unable to leave their home, make phone calls, talk to anyone they don't know, etc.).

The worst cases are usually given prescribed medication to control the condition in order to live their lives normally, e.g. visit their families outside their home, have a job, do shopping and other every-day activities.

It's been found that extroverts are more likely to suffer from social anxiety disorder than introverts. I'm not sure why, though. They usually cope by smoking heavily, drinking heavily, making inappropriate comments/jokes, or such.

Introverts with social anxiety disorder tend to prefer solitary activities to socialising. (But all in all, it doesn't mean introverts without social anxiety disorder are shy. They often aren't.)

Sorry it's so long-winded. I did an essay on this for school. It's a fascinating and complex condition.
