    Extreme Introvert

    I have been conducting surveys for roughly 17 years. The reason I chose this job is because I am an extreme introvert and I am very uncomfortable being around other people, especially  people who ask personal questions.  The challenge that I am experiencing is that if...

    Mostly personality test

    that I'd take is classified me as an introvert. I believe it because many quality of introvert is same as my personality to. I'm mostly known as reserved, distant person. I can't easily show my true feeling at other. I even can't look people in their eyes (maybe because I'm...

    I literally HATE walking down the road by

    myself. I feel like everyone is looking & laughing at me because of how I'm dressed or because I'm ugly. I hate the way I look & I wish I could change everything about myself. Every time I'm in a new situation where I meet new people, I say to myself, right you are going to...

    Passionate On the Inside Though

    It just won't come out--or at least not until I feel comfortable.  Unfortunately, this process takes a while and some people get disappointed waiting.  I can't help it, that's me.  I am working on that, but it's slow going.  Maybe by the time I'm on my death...

    Is There Such A Thing As An Introvert-in-denial?

    I just had a talk with someone who to me, seems to be an introvert. She does not like to be seen by people. She does not talk much. Above all, she makes me get things from the common area. I told her in passing that she may have a fear of people. She told me she does not. I've...

    Resisting Looking At The Ground

    I walked to school without looking at the ground today. I willed myself to look at people eye-level. Every time someone approached, I hold my breath. And then we pass each other and it was done. Sometimes, I winced. Sometimes, I just pretended like I was just walking on EP-land...

    The Right Word...

    I think the right name for this group would maybe be, people with social anxiety or avoidant personality disorder.

    Hi. I am glad I stumbled upon this website. I am an introvert; I prefer to spend my time alone rather than going out with my friends watching movie or having a pint of beer. Trust me, my story is just pain in the *** to deal with. Sometimes, I couldn't even understand myself. Why...

    Very, Very Insecure.

    I don't know why anyone would like me, or would want my friendship, or anything more. The fact is I'm a hidden mess. I'm mostly scared of loss, of rejection, of failure.I thinkĀ I'd be ecstatic to date someone who was hopelessly socially inept, just because I wouldn't have to...

    So Very, Very Introverted

    Sometimes the pressure of keeping it all inside, locked brings me to tears. Hard core sobbing ensures till I can get it out. I clean up and put on my game face, always emotionless and start the cycle again... It's not that I'm shy, per se, just that I'm usually on a very...

    Only recently has my therapist said this

    insecurity and extreme introvert personality is the result of my being bullied at school, abused at home, and having chronic medical conditions. It's sort of the triple whammy, and it hurts too because I feel like I can't let people in.
