Yeah, basically. * sigh*<br />
They are usually too outgoing with other people to realize you are there and just assume you are anti-social.
Yep, that is me exactly!
they always occur with me. my friends always assume that i am anti-social but i am not, it is just when i have too much people around me that it is better to keep my mouth shut because speaking to more than 2 people make me use up all my energy.
Extroverts hate other extoverts.<br />
Someone else is taking their limelight.
Not really. In my expenience they always seem to just dismiss introverts as just 'shy'
or snobbish, or ill educated because they can't understand an intnrovert wanting to just listen and not challenge anyone in some verbal jousting.
That appears to be true.
thats very true
Yeah. I have the same thought. It seems like it is hard for them to accept that some people are happy in their alone time.
I understand introverts quite well and I'm not impressed nor do I think I could easily be friends with an introvert...<br />
...I'm not up for being viewed as dumb party animal. Or being told I'm a [personality disorder] or that I'm [mental illness]. Or having my thoughts and feelings summed up as useless prattle. Or having my intelligence level decide my worth as a human being. Or being told I can never shut up when I actually do shut up and listen to others. Or being "observed" from afar like exotic animals in a zoo rather than actually being sought out for meaningful discourse as a human being.<br />
Sorry, but I understand you introverts perfectly... I understand that as "shallow" as I am, it's because you've chosen to see me as "shallow" and thus not worth your time and definitely NOT a human being at all.
Sorry. It's just that a lot of the introvert/extrovert discussion is how awful extroverts are or how introverts are special misunderstood snowflakes.
I am an extrovert and just recently found out two of my friends were introverts. I had no idea. I was so glad that I found introverts posting on the internet so that I could learn more.
I find that to be false in my case anyway.
