I feel like I'm speaking for all introverts when I can say that things like going to fancy dinner parties, going to court, renewing my car title, being alone with my girlfriends parents, etc. are basically physical impossibilities without somebody telling me how or doing it with me.
User avatar #7 to #3 - oneentity (01/13/2014) [-]
I was big introvert in my mid-teens yet the only advice I can give is to "man up" and go for it.

Introversion doesn't mean that you are socially awkward. It just means that you prefer to be alone or with close friends doing quiet activities.
User avatar #40 to #3 - Crusader (01/14/2014) [-]
Fancy dinner parties
- Don't be obnoxious
- Don't do anything gross
- Be polite
- Dress nice

Court
- Don't be obnoxious
- Don't do anything gross
- Be polite
- Dress nice
- People will tell you what to do

Renewing a car title
- Don't be obnoxious (optional here)
- Follow the instructions they give you at your local center (you can normally find it by google)

Alone with in-laws
- Don't be obnoxious
- Be polite
- Treat it like a fancy dinner party
+1

Court and Renewing Car Titles will have the people ask for specific information, if you don't know what to say, then you shouldn't be there, as for fancy dinner parties, you don't need to speak, or can wait until spoken to.

As for in-laws, ask about your significant other's childhood or old family stories, it's an easy out and makes you seem interested in their family.

I'm an introvert and do all these things (except for the in laws, I've never been left alone with them), you just need a moment of bravery the rest will sort itself out.
User avatar #46 to #40 - Crusader (01/14/2014) [-]
Pretty much any social problem you have can be solved by talking, but not being obnoxious.

Also, dressing fancy will help anyone look good.
User avatar #21 to #3 - danniegurl ONLINE (01/14/2014) [-]
That sounds more like shyness rather than introvertedness.
For example, I'm not too shy anymore (used to be) but I'm an introvert.
Being alone with a girlfriend's parents especially sticks out to me because that's only two people, hardly a crowd.

I always wished there was a class you could take that taught you about loans, job stuff, insurance, and other practical life stuff.
User avatar #11 to #10 - kanatana (01/13/2014) [-]
I had a class like that in high school. I passed the Resume and Interviewing courses with flying colors, did okay in Checkbook Balancing, Budgeting, and Finance, but I totally bombed everything Post Office related.

I swear, I'm not making this **** up.
User avatar #12 to #11 - thecole (01/13/2014) [-]
I need a class like that. I did take one similar in 7th grade but who needs to know that stuff at that age only to forget it when you really need it?
User avatar #16 to #12 - valyn (01/14/2014) [-]
most american high schools and colleges have something along those lines
#14 to #10 - lolfire (01/13/2014) [-]
We had a class where they taught us not to hurt protestants....

It was called citizenship.....
User avatar #17 to #10 - rheago (01/14/2014) [-]
We had that, but we didn't learn **** .

I still barely know what to do in real life
User avatar #22 to #10 - danniegurl ONLINE (01/14/2014) [-]
My school had something like that, if I remember correctly, called Practical Art.
#36 to #10 - skalias (01/14/2014) [-]
The subject is called "business" not sure why wherever you live wouldn't have it.
User avatar #38 to #10 - Crusader (01/14/2014) [-]
If you don't know how a loan works, then you are missing some basic stuff
"Job Stuff" is pretty generic, what job stuff don't you understand
Insurance is just like loans, actually it's based off the same principle as loans, and would be explained by the agent you are talking to. I sell insurance, so if you had any actual questions, you could ask me

People often complain "Oh no, school never taught me this, School should teach you this" when really, it's stuff that you can learn by doing this thing called asking or research which is really easy to do, and often people complaining about this sort of thing just want the information given to them.

This would be helpful as 			****		. All i learned in school was how to take tests, now i'm 18 and no idea how to:   
   
-send a package   
-set up a bank account   
-apply for a debit/credit card   
-balance a checkbook   
-pay mortgage   
-manage finances   
   
   
Why did no one teach us the practical things?

I took a career's class in Grade 10, taught me how to make a resume, and that was about it.

to send a package, you can
1- go to the post office with said pakage and they will take you step by step thought the process
2- pay UPS to pick it up from your place and they will ship it
to set up a back account
walk into a bank and they will do it for you
to apply for a credit card
walk into a bank and tell them you want to apply for a credit card (debit cards are free with a bank account)
to pay mortgage ( rent most likely )
you will have to talk with your leasing manager about weather you want it directily withdrawn from your bank account or if you want to write them a check every month
to balance a checkbook
well you don't people stoped doing that in the 90's now banks do it for you with online banking
to manage finances
well that's all you no one can tell you how to spend your own money

if it sound like im trying to be a smart ass, well im not all this is really that easy
User avatar #78 to #58 - iRetaliate (01/14/2014) [-]
Because all of those things are simple to do.

Jesus Christ, do you need to be spoonfed everything?
User avatar #79 to #78 - lulzdealer (01/14/2014) [-]
Do you realize that everything you ever learned was because someone taught it to you? There is literally no mention of any of this **** at all ever.
User avatar #81 to #79 - iRetaliate (01/14/2014) [-]
Or you learn by trying things and realize that they're pretty simple.

Watch adventure time. Teaches things like not to make out with people in public because it's rude, nor not to get too attached to things. It's a "kids' show," but it's really targeted at teens.

Practical stuff like banking, paying bills, insurance, etc, can all be learned with a quick Google search. There's articles everywhere. Beneficial to read, even if you already have a grasp on the topic, since there's always a good tip you haven't heard of.

For the social stuff: not being an asshole at parties, date etiquette, etc, I like to watch Guy Code on VH1. I think it's funny, and I actually picked up a lot of great tips from it.

If you need to be taught those things i think you shouldn't leave the house anyway.

Mission Hill was kindof like that

It's called being social.
User avatar #6 to #2 - ttallonn ONLINE (01/13/2014) [-]
But for some people, like me, who are introverts that "simple" thing is almost impossible

in·tro·vert
ˈintrəˌvərt/
noun
1.
a shy, reticent, and typically self-centered person.
User avatar #15 to #6 - almightysausage (01/14/2014) [-]
I'm no psychologist but I think you got something mixed up with introverts, because an introvert can still hold conversations and be social they just prefer not to.
User avatar #56 to #6 - hates (01/14/2014) [-]
As someone who is an introvert, I have to say you're more thinking of antisocial/shy. Introversion is where you use up energy when you're social, and you get that energy back by being alone or in quiet. It has nothing to do with not wanting to talk, I have times when I love to chat.
#9 to #2 - lolollo ONLINE (01/13/2014) [-]
The whole point is that the show would train people how to act while being social. Telling someone simply to be social to train themselves on how to be social is like telling someone to run the marathon to train for the marathon.
User avatar #20 to #9 - klokwork (01/14/2014) [-]
wouldn't that work though?
Like throwing a kid into deep water to teach him how to swim.
User avatar #43 to #20 - Crusader (01/14/2014) [-]
NO
you don't throw him in deep water, deep water is bad

Throw them in water that is like neck to mid chest deep

That's actually a pretty bad parenting idea. If you fail you loose confidence, if you figure it out, then all you've learned is that the best way to do things is to jump into them recklessly.

User avatar #33 to #9 - opticmonkey (01/14/2014) [-]
But... to train for a marathon you run, so wouldnt being social be a good way to train for going to a party...?
#57 to #33 - wagastragas ONLINE (01/14/2014) [-]
better example, speed at 120 mph, then release the steering wheel and tell your kid to drive, i doubt he will be touching a steering wheel again.

Its called ******* GUY CODE.
User avatar #71 - RKOViper (01/14/2014) [-]
Do people on here not watch TV? It's not exactly what you explained but "Guy Code" is literally a show made to tell guys what to do and how to behave in various situations.
#52 - unclejessie (01/14/2014) [-]
There is, its called Reality TV. Begin with Jersey Shore, Honey Boo-Boo, Real Housewive of **************** ...the list is endless.
