I'm So Quiet Because..

I have nothing to contribute to the conversation.

I have no opinion of the current topic.

I prefer to listen.

I don't know the topic very well.

You intimidate me.

I don't like to talk in noisy places.

Something is on my mind.

Something is always on my mind.

I don't want to interrupt anyone.

I don't know or recognize the natural "cues" for when someone should speak next.

I don't like to talk when in groups.

I'm shy around people I don't know very well.

I'm shy around people I like.

I'm so quiet because it is who I am.

these are all the reasons a person is quiet ! I could not say it better! People often ask me why I am so quiet or tell me I am too dreamy but that`s because all the reasons you wrote, next time I am going to tell them why :)

I am the same way, if a conversation is not pleasant or interesting my mind will be sure to wonder off. I prefer for a conversation to be long but with pauses. It almost seems that the quieter and longer a conversation is the more the subject becomes intimate and honest opposed to a conversation based on quick wit debates.

that's all fair enough esuri ... it's important to understand yourself. Quiet people are calm and very pleasant to be around as long as they are not so quiet that they make it hard work for others. You sound like a nice person who perhaps could come out of their shell a little. But in your own time.
