    I get my energy from the people around me,

    and I like social events if I go with a group of friends. But then again, I'm so awkward and I don't know how to start/continue a conversationšŸ˜…šŸ˜­

    There are times when I dont want to socialize

    with others. I just want to be locked up in my room, with my headphones on. But then, there are times when all I wanted to do was to go out and meet other people.

    Sometimes I feel like I would commit a suicide

    much easier than makeing my life better because it involves communication and a suicide is something you can do being all alone. Why is any smallest communication is such a problem for me. I like it when it goes good, but to make myself start it is a trick and to overcome it if...

    I feel so conflicted right now.

    I want to talk and chat and text all night long right now, yet I'm insanely shy when it comes to one on one conversations. During school, I'm always bouncy and energetic (and honestly kinda crazy) but when I leave it's like all the extroverted energy I'd just drained out of me...

    Half the time I want to socialize

    and relate with other people, but the other half I want everyone to leave me alone so I can keep my sanity. It's very confusing and frustrating haha. I really hope people don't think that I'm rude because of that, I can't help it :)

    I'm excited to reach out to a world I often

    feel isolated from. I long for human interaction and friendship but didn't know how to reach out. Then even if I did I am afraid of not being a good enough friend or maybe I would lose interest in developing that friendship and end up gaining an enemy. it's hard to trust others...

    I really wish I knew

    which "vert" was stronger. I hate parties solely based on conversation. I'm not nervous, but I simply don't have much to say. It's so annoying because I have no problem meeting anyone, but I'm not the type to strike up a conversation without an idea of what to talk about...

    Two Pints Makes the Difference

    There are loads of pictures on my facebook of a guy with a massive grin and his arms around people he'd just met. I barely recognise that guy when I'm sober. He looks like a drunken idiot but at least he's having fun - I just wish I could find a happy medium between the extremes...

    I'm mostly introverted

    because I'm not comfortable with being myself around anyone. My mom was telling me stuff like, "You are too introverted, how are you gonna survive when you're older?? blah blah" That really hurts me and pissed me off, because first all nobody even knows anything about how I...

    Honestly, in the last month

    or so, I have been wanting to be by my self. I have always enjoyed my own self, then talking with anyone else. It seems as though I have more ideas and better talks with my self. Although, I am considered as happy and loud and confident, I am actually quite shy.....

    In a social setting, I'll be friendly to anyone.

    I don't judge anyone before meeting them; anyone could be my friend. I also like to make sure everyone is comfortable and not left out. People my age find it weird that I'll walk up to just about anyone and shake their hand and introduce myself. However, there certain things...

    Sometimes I call myself bipolar for just this reason. Although I know that's not the typical definition of the word, how else do you define a half introvert/half extrovert personality? It's weird -- one second I'm the shyest person in the world, and the next, the loudest, most...

    I had to take the MMPI-Adolescents test awhile

    back, for those who don't know that is a 498 true-false question test that tests for personality disorders, personality traits, and states. I had a pretty boring profile apparently except for the fact I tested highly for both introverted and extroverted. Best of both worlds!

    I am a dichotomy of personalities.

    Which makes it kind of odd that I have a career in sales. Most people think I am an extrovert, in a way I am when I am on the job. But get me in a party to mingle and make friends and I tend to be the wallflower type. Being an extrovert does not come easy to me, it takes me out...

    I get pumped up about going to concerts,

    partying afterwards and meeting new people, starting conversations with them about music or whatever. Then afterwards, I have to spend a LOT of time by myself to recharge.

    I definitely have my extroverted

    and introverted. I love being around people and participating in social events. The high energy makes me feel happy and act like a college student. However, I have times when I'm tired of being with people and must have my alone time.

    Insecure Exhibitionist

    That was me for a long time, a duality, part introvert, part extrovert.  And even when I was "extroverted" I hid behind a very well polished facade, a veneer, an act - a performance.  In recent years I have been able to integrate the two poles so that I am...

    My introvert side is stronger.

    Im not shy, I just don't feel like talking much sometimes. Alot of people don't understand that. But if I do want to talk to someone, even if I never met them before, I'll easily walk up and start a conversation. Introverts will call me crazy and an extrovert would say im more...

    I know that life can be cruel at times.

    How and when will I ever learn to balance both ?? I yearn for touch and connection. Repulsed by ego and selfishness. Confused because both are seen and felt right at the brink of connection. To break free and be or hold on and remain sane.
