I get that 'arrogant' thing on occasion, and it really gets me, because internally, I was freaking out and intimidated... and people go, oh she was acting all arrogant.
I'd be like... *huh* WTF I was ready to run away in terrors, how can that be mistaken for arrogant LOLOL
I'm kind of odd, people that I'm not close to, I don't like them anywhere near my personal space. People I'm close to and like, I'm very touchy feely hugy... Mostly because I find it a ton more difficult to express sympathy verbally. Hugging someone seems to say it all.
The truth will set you free,
but first it's gonna piss you off!
Did anyone read the most recent Time magazine article on introverts? =D It explains all of us in a very good way, I think. Count me in as another innie - never been much of an outgoing person (I can do it but I prefer a smaller group of closer friends or I tend to like doing activities by myself). The article also mentioned that it seems introverts who keep to themselves naturally are also better when it comes to concentrated study of any subject.
BTW, that "sniper as career choice" tag made me chuckle. XD
I haven't actually read through this thread yet but I did find this interesting.
And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.
I found things easier when illness pushed me out of high school and away from roaming packs of feral jerks. When I went to get my high school qualifications at a higher education college, there was a big difference. As if something flipped a switch in other teenagers' heads (or just filtered out the pricks) while I was away.
I always did get on better with older people, even if I didn't have much to say to them. Though that's not to say I'm in any way mature, even now.
I'm still pretty introverted and shy too, though trying to do something about it to avoid coming across as rude. Proper greeting, looking people in the eye during conversation, etc. For some strange reason I have problems calling people by their names, until I know them much better - it seems almost intrusive or presumptuous, somehow.
There are things I plain don't like, though. Sitting in noisy pubs and clubs, listening to pointless gossip about people I don't know or care about... gah. Again, it took a move to university in the Big Smoke to find people and groups interested in something other than cars and football (soccer) and the race towards cirrhosis. I still take a trip every couple of weeks for a nerdy night of wargames. I think it helps that the others in that group aren't introverted.
What is it with the tags of this thread?
