Maybe if I don't want to talk to you I'm not an introvert, I just think you're an annoying ************.

why are people so defensive about introversion? people act like they're victims of hate crimes or something. like people say extroverts are obnoxious, slutty, and asshats. But if you say an introvert is reclusive, the whole world comes spiraling to an end.

It's because introverts are always given **** for being "antisocial" by almost all of society. We're deemed "the weird kids" and instead of people choosing to try and understand us, they pass us off to do their own **** (which sometimes involves making us the butt of their jokes).

So yes...we get a tad touchey......

An introvert doesn't make an extrovert feel uncomfortable very often, while the opposite is quite common. Besides, society has rejected introverts for a long time, calling them boring, nerds, anti-socials, arrogant... in this world, if you prefer to spend your Saturday night reading a book or watching TV instead of going to party hard, consume alcohol and drugs and **** any whole you find in your way, you're seen as a loser. This is just an attempt to balance things, to show people that introversion isn't a bad thing, it's not even so uncommon, it's just a different way to live your life.

Why the **** would i need a guide to introverts. I not going to adjust my complete life style because someone doesn't talk. He can either reply normally or kindly **** off. Acknowledge their existence, jesus christ. If he wants to be acknowledged he should do something. If not, then don't blame me if I don't interact with him/her either.

You don't need to adjust your whole lifestyle, just your behavior around that particular person. You do it all the time, it's not a big deal. If you can't do that, then YOU kindly **** off. No one has to bend over backwards to accommodate you, asshole, you have plenty of other people you can hang out with.

So no one has to bend over backwards to accommodate me, but we need a complete guide as to how to bend over backward to get along with people that don't like to talk to others. Its basically forcing yourself into his life. If he doesn't want to talk then why should I go out of my way to get him to talk?

Did you even READ the thing?

Here's an analogy:

An extrovert is the sort of person who invites you into their home without you having to ask.

An introvert is someone whose door you knock on politely before being let inside.

No bending over backward, no immense effort on your part is needed. Leave an opening for them to interact with you and go about your day. If they do accept your offer, they'll appreciate your courtesy. If not, that's too bad, but most times you're free to invite them in another time since you didn't push them into anything.

Yes I did read the thing, and when I greet someone, and he or she does not respond, I will take that as a sign that he or she does not want to talk. So I will not be like "Oh maybe he'll respond at some point." Apart from the fact that not responding at all is rude, and if he does respond to my greeting, and I continue to ask him something or tell him something, and if instead of having a conversation he'll just sit there reading a book, i would feel insulted. If i have to acknowledge his presence, I'd like him to do the same at least. Not just ignoring me under the excuse that he is introvert

If someone does just ignore you, that's rude, yes. But not all introverts are like that. If you have a specific person in mind with all this, that person is not just an introvert, that person is also anti-social and doesn't enjoy talking to you. An introvert with social skills will humor your conversation but put as little into it as possible because they don't want to talk to you.

If that's rude to you as well, think of it another way. All you want to do is read your book or listen to music or play a game, but then there's this person next to you who just will NOT leave you alone! You give them as many signals as possible that they're not interesting you and you want to be left alone, but they wont shut up! You didn't invite them into a conversation, they started it, and are doing all they can to distract you from what you want to do. And it SUCKS!

That is what introverted people deal with all the time, because extroverted people can be oblivious to the fact that not everyone operates like they do.

Yeah but that is someone that is nagging, like i said, if after a greeting, or first question there is no answer or a very short one. I will give up on trying to talk to someone who's obviously not interested. But i cannot look at someone and see "oh that guy is introvert, i need to approach this in a different manner" Now don't get me wrong I will not strike up a conversation when someone I don't know walks into the room. But when he's sitting next to you, it would be rude from my side to not say anything either. But I stand by my point that a complete guide as to how to approach someone who doesn't like conversation to begin with is stupid. I can't tell if someone is an introvert, I can't tell if he's lonely, if I don't get any signals, how am I supposed to know whats going on. They act like introverts are some kind of fragile object that breaks as soon as you breath on it.. If he doesn't want to talk, we don't talk, if he wants to talk, we'll talk. Why do they need to make things overly complicated?

The guide talking about introverts like some sort of alien entity or fragile flower is part of the joke, though it's still making a point.

If it seems complicated, you are the one who's over-thinking. It's not a complex idea.

Leave an opening. Did they engage with you? If yes: Great, conversation time! No: Leave them alone. They're preoccupied.

You don't have to walk on egg shells, just be polite and go with the flow, even if that flow stops before it gets very far.

No this guy is an antisocial little **** and needs to learn how to ******* talk to people. You need person skills in order to survive in life and these kinds of assholes have none. They are annoying awkward little ***** and should just not go out if they don't enjoy it. Stay in your little emo dark room with your books like the pathetic loner you are. They are not good in social situations so they PRETEND they don't want to be in them, that way they don't feel the need to change, they just say hey I just don't like it when in reality they care. Idc what you say everyone wants to be accepted and have friends, these losers can not make friends because like I said they're antisocial.

by the way you rage on the internet and seek attention, even if its negative attention by trolling, suggests you are pretty introverted. possibly not because you wish to be, but because you are such an amazing douche even your parents have trouble loving you.

(07/13/2013) [-]
While I agree that going outside probably is better, let me tell you why social situations, especially new ones, bother me.

First, the main kind of social gathering for people my age is the party. This usually features loud dance music, people I don't like, and around here it always devolves into grinding. It seems to only be fun for people who can just let go of everything and go without inhibitions for a while. It's great that they can do that and have fun in that way, but I can't. I've been to parties and dances, and I can never open up like that. I don't like the music, I don't like many of the people, and as much as I try, I'm incapable of making myself just turn off my mind like that.

Second, the things I like best are found in my house, not outside. Books, video games, Internet, all of it. I love seeing my friends in person and hanging out with them, but I don't want to just go to the park and sit there for an hour.

Third, I go into either shutdown or full retard mode when put in an uncomfortable situation. Hell, it's only in the past few months that I've been able to properly talk to girls, some of whom are now my friends. I also will sometimes just shut down completely, sometimes to the point that I can't speak, no matter how much air I force through my throat. I don't really know why that happens. I don't know why any of it happens, really, but it's a reality I have to put up with.

There's more, but I'm pretty sure you don't want to hear it and will tell me to man up or something.

So your problem is you need to learn to relax. I don't understand how you don't like grinding... you don't like a girl rubbing her ass all over your dick? lol wtf? Go join a book club, play video games with people, maybe at a tournament? All of these can be social things if you allow them to be, just like the internet. Obviously there is something wrong with you and you need to get help to fix yourself. You are not normal.

No, bad things can come of it as well.
It is rarely a good thing to insult people and force them outside of their comfort zone.
Not to mention, this doesn't say that introverts don't want to have friends or be accepted, in fact it says the opposite, the only problem is that if you go out and meet people, usually you will meet people that want to go out more than stay in, and therefore are not like you, and therefore will most likely end up in a conflict of some sort.
You imply that introverts want to stay inside in the dark collecting knowledge and such, while wanting no contact with the outside world, this is not the case, introverts to want contact, but in limited amounts.

I don't know?
Lowering their self esteem
Pushing them into situations that they don't like
Causing a nervous disorder to form
Introverts know how to talk to people when they need to, they just don't want to.
Yes, it is as simple as that, they don't want to.
They prefer to stay at home, they prefer to read, if someone comes over, they will talk to them, this post was simply a guide on how best to approach an introvert so they remain comfortable.
It's not as if they all want to stay inside and never talk to anyone, they just don't want to go out and do extremely social things, they don't like parties, they don't like crowds, they don't like being somewhere with lots of people, they prefer small groups, they prefer hanging out rather than going out, etc.

How the **** does socializing lower your self esteem? It'll make you feel better about yourself if anything. You'll see you have a lot more in common than your thought.
They will learn to like it if they do it more often. If not then they are antisocial like I said and there is something wrong with them.
They are not normal and have issues which they need to fix if a nervous disorder arises.
They don't want to be around people so they are loners
We shouldn't have to cater to them... they are not normal and need to learn how to be. No one else's problem but their own.

I'm an Introvert. Yes I am antisocial and awkward. I have trouble talking to people. I'm bad at small talk and have trouble thinking of things to say. It does make life a little harder but Its not ruining my life. I have a job and talk to a lot of people. But as the post says, it drains me. It exhausting trying to come out of my shell because along with being introverted I am incredibly shy. I don't agree that everyone wants friends. I have my friends from work and one really close friend and I would honestly be happy with just her as a friend. I do enjoy just staying in and being alone. I'm not emo and don't just sit in the dark. I like to be by myself and read or play video games or something like that. I hate when people try to push me into going out and interacting with other people. It also doesn't help that I really don't like people. So all in all I agree with you on some points but I mostly disagree.

My point exactly, only an antisocial asshole would call it "meaningless contact". It isn't meaningless, it's called knowing how to ******* socialize. Not every single ******* conversation needs to have a real meaning, it could just be to pass the time and get to know someone or pass the time. We're not ******* robots calculating why am I going to talk to them? What do they offer ME? That is the antisocial **** i'm talking about. There's nothing wrong with small talk.

You're forgetting the part where it takes up a lot of energy. Sure, I talk to people - I'm not the kind of person that ignores you because I 'don't feel like talking'. I'm avoiding situations where I have to speak to a lot of people, and I have few but very close real friends. I think you're confusing preferring to be alone with being a dick to people when you're with them anyway. I always was one of the most talkative people in class in school, but I hardly ever met up with them after school, because I would rather spend that time by myself.

Again TL;DR - Your criticism is not justified.

I never claimed to be an introvert, but I see similarities SOME wit what is defined as an introvert in me, and you call me an asshole and do not even know me further proves your social skills poor. if I where to make a decision on some due to a comment or a sentence I can not, they could write negro and you may think they a racist, but in reality they say black in Spanish (and look at it asshole but im not in tilet to make that choice yet, I do not know you)

"By the looks of it you have worse social skills than me and that's something." Sounds kind of like you were implying you were an introvert. I called introverts assholes because they are antisocial assholes who think they're special unique snowflakes when they're not.

These are sources confirming the complexity of your type, or as I call it, the "complexity of your layers."

I don't own this information.

"This type has great depth of personality; they are themselves complicated, and can understand and deal with complex issues and people," and, " Not that INFJs are inconsistent; they are very consistent and value integrity. But they have convoluted, complex personalities which sometimes puzzle even them." This consistency of the INTP is also shown in the INFJ, as conferred, they are complex individuals. You probably had mistaken yourself as: INTP and ENTP in this consistency.

www.personalitypage.com/INFJ.html [Portrait of an INFJ - Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Judging (Introverted Intuition with Extraverted Feeling)]

"INFJs are gentle, caring, complex and highly intuitive individuals. Artistic and creative, they live in a world of hidden meanings and possibilities. Only one percent of the population has an INFJ Personality Type, making it the most rare of all the types," and, "They are deep, complex individuals, who are quite private and typically difficult to understand. INFJs hold back part of themselves, and can be secretive." Based on this too you seemed secretive, I could tell from your lack of reply, the amount of time it took for you to reply, and your rejection of my requests shows your "secretiveness."

"INFJs have an extremely complex internal value system. An INFJ will see if you ‘fit’ into their world, and they’ll bend their own rules if they really like you. INFJs tend to have very high standards, but are also very accepting once they trust you."

You will need to send me a private message because that is a huge selection to choose from. An INTp like myself, will have to see if you have conflicting factors against your type. This being: sensitivity, anxiety, emotional stability, apathy, neuroticism.

Also, from what I see, I first guessed INTp in Socionics with a preoccupation with Fe (based on your MBTI selections). Which shows emotional maturity and personal growth based on this preoccupation, and also based on the variety of types you have gotten, this tells me the evidence. I have a theory based on MBTI, and that is when you see an individual struggling with their type, or when they have a variety of types from testing, it means that they are self-improving in the sense of self-exploration. This meaning that you probably have many layers to yourself (which you may have assumed), and that you have focused mainly on your own personal development in the investigation of all your functions. Which I could guess, based on this "self-improvement," and the "complexity of your layers," you are either maturing, or, you are either introverted.

I believe you are a "T" type, which indicates a "Thinker," but, it could indicate a oscillation between either T or F (which probably means you aren't either T, or F dom). This is because you do have a variety of "T" types which you have chosen, but, you have a preoccupation with Fe. So based on this, you aren't an F or a T dom because you should be certain. In this sense, you are not INTp, ENFj, or ENTP. But, based on your MBTI selections you are not INFP(Fi) or INTP(Ti), but, rather, anything that isn't a thinking and feeling dom.

So, you are probably either an INTJ, and a INFJ, but, considering that INTJ's are usually Self-confident with their type, and you seem to be second guessing yourself with a preoccupation with Fe (being an INFJ's second function), this concludes you might be INFJ from your message.

Based on your complexity of layers, this confirms my bias.

I've always found this labeling thing kind of stupid. I think most poeple are a mixture of both (introversion and extroversion) to different amounts.    
   
This whole energy thing is kind of iffy, I mean, I'm sure there are introverts that get energy from certain people and extroverts who can't stand being around people for extended periods of time.   
   
We're always trying to classify everything into black and white, buy human beings aren't that simple.   
   
Maybe I'm just an oddball, but I'll let people get as close as they want to me, I don't mind physical contact or even the occasional being fondled (that's more of a gift really)  and I'm pretty social, but I spend most of my time alone.

I honestly think a lot of people just say they're introverted because they don't know how to act socially. There's a difference between not knowing how and not wanting to.
