    It Never Occurs To Me That Other People Are Quiet As Well

    I am the typical introvert, I say a lot of things about how little I say, I'm not weak, I'm just quiet, I'm just different, I, I , I,, etc.Then every so often I meet someone and I like them and I want to be friends with them, they seem nice, and reserved in a way that I...

    Unless I Need to Be Loud

    I am very quiet until someone has said something offensive or I have a strong opinion of something. I will not sit aside in silence while in the vacinity of ignorance. I am opinionated and I will say something but for the most part I am silent until you get me talking.

    It's True!!!

    Not online and on this site! LOL! I tend to be "noisy" here, with all of my stories and postings! XD But offline, in a group, I am always known as "the quiet girl in the black". Or sometimes it's shorten to, "the quiet girl". It's not that I am...

    I'm quiet because I like to listen and observe. I like to be respectable and polite. I don't feel comfortable expressing myself by putting attention on myself. I'm very talented when it comes to being quiet. It just comes easy to me. I've come to realize...

    Beyond Quiet

    I am pretty much silent through out my school day. It's been like that since the start of elementary, yet people started to recognize it in second grade (I know, not that far from the start of school). Some people have come up to me and told me they have never heard my voice, and...

    Careful With Words

    I've been a pretty quiet person since I was little.  My mother used to yell at me because I didn't talk enough in school, so my teachers would call her out of concern.  In truth I just didn't like talking to the other kids, I always got along better with adults because...

    I Spend A Lot Of Time Thinking

    As a child I spent a lot of time by myself, playing in my bedroom, with just my toys, no one to talk to. Because of this, I got used to playing and working quietly. I didn't have a lot of friends when I was a young child, although, I developed more when I got older. And even as I...

    Yup

    I've always been a quiet person. The one thing teachers told my parents at parent-teacher conferences was that I was such a good student, but so quiet! Some people act like it's a bad thing, but I don't think it is. I prefer listening to people than talking or just silence...

    Trapped

    Inside my body there's a personality with every characteristic imaginable, and nobody knows it but me.  I feel like a voice that is never heard, never allowed to escape my body in the form of any social speech or action.  I want to escape, but it is like I'm trapped by walls on...

    It Keeps People Guessing

    Allot of people always wonder about me because I'm quiet. They actually wonder about me more than they do about loud people, because people who are loud are easy to figure out because their constantly spewing out this and that about themselves or their personality. I find it...

    I Just Felt Like Telling This....
