The biggest problem with introverted people is that they never shut the **** up over how introverted they are.

Also, this comic (and many others like it) always seem to be written by someone with a very snobby attitude who seems to think the world is against them because people around them are concerned over how they feel.

people who say they are introverted aren't introverted

Depressed underage Tumblr cunts like this don't have a damn clue what being an introvert really feels like and how painful is to fight with it everyday in a loud and extrovert glorifying world. Especially if you are an ugly dude.

I've always been socially awkward, i never know what to say to people, so i just avoided conversations. This didn't work cause my friends stop talking to me because i was "weird" and i scared people out by not talking, so eventually i just said 			****		 it. Now i have no friends, nobody to talk to, BUT, their is never any awkwardness, i could't be happier.

Being an real and anti-social introvert is not so as cool, "art" and cute you ********* imagine it. Especially if you are an ugly dude. It's just one small step from dying alone with no friends. That's it.

Meh, I've gotten over my introversion/social anxiety by just talking to people. Eventually I just became comfortable
#32 to #3 - thenightmarechild (06/20/2014) [-]
I used to suffer from social anxiety, I always got nervous at crowds and groups. After working at Burger Kings and dealing with certain co-workers I realized something. I'm not scared of crowds, I just don't want to bore people with my nerdiness.

My nerves came from the fact that I was worried about how boring people would find me. Once I accepted that I don't have to be friends with everyone, and can be a 'boring' shut-in all I want, things got easier.

I think a few of the 'neck beads' and 'autists' we see are introverts who feel pressured to become more out going. They forget how weird their taste are (anime, D&D, Magic, Hardcore gaming. There's ways to go about these things when you want to 'convert' someone). After failing to woe someone, they get angry and embarrassed, and hide it behind 'all jocks are assholes' and 'nice guys finish last' type mantras.

any way, just my thoughts.

Then you probably weren't very introverted in the first place.
#36 to #5 - ciacheczko (06/20/2014) [-]
Introverted people are not the same as socially awkard people. Anyone can go out and enjoy themselves. Introvert is someone who "recharges" when alone, opposed to an extravert who needs interaction in order to feel comfortable alone.
This does not imply being socially crippled. It's just an excuse for people who don't want to try. If someone goes out with the attitude "There are people so I won't have any fun", he is a jackass, not an introvert.
#38 to #36 - scant (06/20/2014) [-]
Why'd you red thumb me?
That's pretty much the exact point I made in my earlier comments.
User avatar #39 to #38 - ciacheczko (06/20/2014) [-]
Because I disagree with you. It's not the ones who state "I am an introvert but I learned how to socialize" I'm saying are jackasses, but the ones who say "I am introvert so I am obliged to feel uncomfortable around people".

You say that person who learned to spend time with poeople never was an introvert and was only socially anxious. I believe the guy is still an introvert, but an interactive one. And that people who refuse to socialize are both introverted and socially anxious, but use their personal trait as an excuse to avoid hanging out with people.

Introverts are not destined to be lone wolves forever, this is a huge pile of bull dump.
User avatar #40 to #39 - scant (06/20/2014) [-]
Well that's great, except those are not even close to my my arguments.
Firstly, I was arguing against his statement that he 'got over' his introversion.
I was trying to argue the point that introversion generally isn't something that gets any better or worse with increased human contact and it was more likely that it was his social anxiety that improved due to increased human contact, not his introverted nature. Doesn't matter how much time I spend in social situations, it's still going to take me some effort and I'll still need time to recuperate.
Second, I don't know where you're going with the whole "people using introversion and social anxiety to avoid hanging out with people", because I don't recall that point ever popping up in my previous conversation with Metal.
Lastly, I never implied that introverts were forever lone wolves who never desire human contact.
I'm sorry if you got that idea from my comments, but that's not the idea I was trying to convey.
As far as I can tell, we share pretty much the same ideas on the topic, hence my confusion. Obviously I'm just not very good at conveying my opinions to others.

I don't know, maybe that's the deal and we just misunderstood each other. Oh well, things like that happen all too often because typing alone is a very poor communication measure. Glad everything its clear now.

Yup. Lost track of the times I've had my points misconstrued because text just doesn't cut it.
User avatar #8 to #5 - Metallicock (06/20/2014) [-]
Except I was. Public speaking terrified me, hell even speaking in front of like 3 people was terrifying. I had trouble making friends and was always made fun of for being quiet. I even staring making excuses not to hang out with what few friends if it involved being in an unfamiliar environment or social setting. Because of things like that keeping friends was very difficult for me and they became very few and far between. Making eye contact with people seemed impossible. Most verbal interaction involved me looking down and mumbling and them asking me to repeat myself which only made me more nervous. All of that **** eventually built up into depression and pent up anger from everyone always making fun of me. My grades suffered because I was afraid to ask questions or talk to my teachers. My parents thought I was on drugs up until I had to get a drug test for a job some years later. They also thought I was gay because I hadn't had a gf and always strayed away from the subject. It ******* sucked so much and forcing myself to interact more and more and more no matter how much I hated it eventually brought me out of it. I may not exactly be an extroverted party animal, but the social anxiety is gone and I'm thankful for that every day.

Social anxiety is not introversion.
What you just described is not introversion.
You were not introverted, you were just socially awkward and neurotic.
User avatar #11 to #9 - Metallicock (06/20/2014) [-]
Despite they often go hand in hand, I am aware of that. I guess I used some bad examples.
The introversion was still there after all that left. I was comfortable being around people and interacting with people (even though it was draining) but still preferred to sit and home and enjoy solitary tasks rather than going and hanging out or partying in my free time. I never felt like going to social gatherings I was invited to, I didn't party and though people that wouldn't shut up about parties were annoying (I still kinda do think they are actually), I would much rather just draw during free time at work than talk to people, just because that's what I felt like doing. I actually sort of got pushed into going and hanging out with friends I had made and going and doing things with the group of them, but I'm glad I did. Now I don't find being around them or other people exhausting, but I don't necessarily find it energizing either. I look forward to doing things with them and it's fun and all but I don't thrive off of it. It's just kinda neutral feeling I guess, and all I know is that even after all that other social anxiety, I didn't feel that way, friends or not.
Also I'm apparently retarded and replied to my own comment by accident lol

"I've gotten over my introversion/social anxiety by just talking to people"
"The introversion was still there after all that left"

Okay.
You got over your social anxiety, not your introversion, meaning your first comment is moot.
I don't believe introversion can be 'gotten over'. It's not a disease, it's a personality trait.
User avatar #14 to #12 - Metallicock (06/20/2014) [-]
It was, it's not anymore. Like I said, once I started being around other people more and more, I actually started to enjoy it and it became less exhausting to be around others.
User avatar #15 to #14 - scant (06/20/2014) [-]
Probably because half of that exhaustion came from the social anxiety not the introversion, but whatever.
User avatar #16 to #15 - Metallicock (06/20/2014) [-]
I don't understand why you are instant on arguing
User avatar #17 to #16 - scant (06/20/2014) [-]
Because too often I see comments posted by morons who have all these weird ideas that introversion is the same as social anxiety or autism or some other ridiculous *********** .
Not saying you're one of those people, but when I read a comment like "I just got over my introversion" it tingles my jimmies because that's not something that happens.
User avatar #18 to #17 - Metallicock (06/20/2014) [-]
How do you know it doesn't?
User avatar #19 to #18 - scant (06/20/2014) [-]
How do you know it does?
Because you didn't like being in social situations, then you forced yourself into them and now you do?
You're 100% sure that was your introversion diminishing and not any other combination of factors, right?
User avatar #20 to #19 - Metallicock (06/20/2014) [-]
Well social interaction and being around others in general went from feeling terrifying to exhausting to kinda enjoyable to fun most the time anyway

You said you see introversion as a personality trait. Growing up, personality traits and even musical tastes are influenced if not developed by life experiences and environment so why is it so crazy that that they can be changed by them later in life as well? Obviously it would probably be a more gradual change, but I don't think that is outlandish to think that people can change.
User avatar #21 to #20 - scant (06/20/2014) [-]
Perhaps personality trait is the wrong word to use.
I'm not saying people don't change, what I meant was I believe introversion is not something that can be influenced.
I grew up with an introverted mother and an extroverted father. Even though I spent most of my youth with my father, I still turned out introverted as anything.
Having said that I still enjoy hanging out with friends, going to bars, being in social settings, etc.
I have loads of fun and I never regret going, but it takes a lot out of my and I always end up exhausted.
User avatar #22 to #21 - Metallicock (06/20/2014) [-]
Well that just sounds like it's because your out doing stuff lol. I guess we just see things differently, so I don't really wanna argue, I came here to laugh like I'm sure you did.

if you think you're introverted, but you still longer for a good party or dream about becoming popular and having tons of friends and people constantly recognizing you in the street or in school or uni or whatever... You're not an introvert. Just because you like alone time as well and can enjoy silence, does not make you introverted.

I don't stay in because I enjoy the quiet. I stay in because my crippling social anxiety makes it just about impossible for me to enjoy myself at a party. I even hate my own birthday gatherings.

The majority of FJ thinks they're introverted, but truth is, alot of you were raised on the internet and video games your entire childhood, so you don't know how to properly communicate and act at social gatherings
It's not that you don't have any friends because you're introverted, you don't have any friends because you're an awkward ****

Maybe introvert and extrovert are just made up labels that don't really apply to anybody. Gay or straight? Black or white? Christian or atheist? Liberal or conservative? Human beings are complex creatures that rarely fit neatly into one little box. Maybe we should stop deluding ourselves into believing that any one of us can be defined by a single word.
