    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.

    I Just Felt Like Telling This....

    Sometimes its better to keep things to yourself and stay silent. Somewhere in the silence i guess you'll find things are more intersting in listening.I realised, i've learnt alot in listening rather than talking and understands more. :)I guess a little silences helps..Yet...

    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...

    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...

    Still Slumber...

    When I wake up, I frown. It's just me and me alone...But when I'm sleep, I'm surrounded and laughing with my friends.When I look twice, they're all in front of me and walking off...Screams turn to wails and I silently fall down...only to figure out I'm all alone again.Now, I...

    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...

    Two Different Worlds

    I am quiet, I have always been quiet. I have been described as so many things from shy to absent-minded. As a child my parents, teachers, or classmates would call me these things. But, I never listened to their words because in my mind was a world of my own and I didn't feel...

    I Wonder If You'D See Me

    Would you notice me, sitting in the corner of the room, my drink sitting on the table, cigarette smoldering in the ashtray- would you see me? I see. I think. I notice things. If you did notice me, what would you think, that bloke, sitting there, alone, quietly contemplating...

    Hi. So i'm quiet but others confuse it

    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...

    There's a huge difference. In my case I choose to be observant, unlike shyness. When you speak less, the actual things you do say have more impact. That's just me, I guess.
