How shy or introverted are you? The poll is anonymous.
I'm so shy it causes other people to feel awkward around me.
i'm only shy in a few specific situations. i'm very introverted though, and since extroverts refuse to acknowledge the existence of introversion, i've been falsely accused of shyness many times.
I'm shy, socially anxious.
But I'm fine with the right people.
And when I'm on the get right.
Hmmm. At home and such I value my alone time. Don't have the desire to go out nearly as much as I used to. Today for example I stayed home alone most of the day and night and was fine with it. But when I do go out I like a smaller place like a pub where I can strike up a conversation with an interesting person. I'm bad at parties if I cant find that interesting person to bond with.
When I'm high.
Give me a room full of people and I will find someone to have fun with.
I was very shy as a child and still can be in certain situations but i've grown out of it for the most part.
I'm still pretty reserved around most people though, unless I click with them or find them interesting or have known them a while.
And i'm very much an introvert, which isnt the same as being shy. I love being around people (if I click with them and find them interesting, that is) but only for a while, then I have to retreat and restore my depleted energy
I really enjoy my own company for the most part, which I think is a valuable trait in life. If you're okay with being alone you dont ever have to fear being alone.
Sometimes, I’m shy/introverted and other times, outgoing. For me, it takes me a bit to feel comfortable enough to show the outgoing side. But I like being alone sometimes and other times, around people.
I think the poll choices are interesting. I don’t know if I’ve ever viewed the opposite of shy as popular, hmm.
I can be shy at times. I'm very much introverted but also very active and outgoing. Probably more active than most extroverts.
I can be a good conversationalist if i click well with someone. Other than that i can be quiet to the point where people around me are unaware of my presence.
I don't waste words and am only able to maintain meaningful conversation. I guess I actively avoid small talk and have a bit of anxiety if I am in a situation where I know I need to make small talk. I am often thinking to myself "how am I going to get out of this conversation?"
I don't feel shy though. I don't mind engaging with people as long as it is purposeful and not forced.
Not really shy, but introverted. I feel like I don't have much to say to most people.
I am the speak when spoken to type. I am not one for small talk.
i don't think extroverts are normally any more active on average anyway. they just need attention from people, but a lot of them seem to get that attention by sitting at a bar talking to the extrovert sitting next to them, rather than doing anything particularly active.
so few people actually are active, it's kind of a better lifestyle for an introvert. an active extrovert would have a hell of a hard time finding someone to be active with.
I was not shy personality wise but was too scared to get close to a female for far too long. I thought a past of my body was not normal. I was wrong but it took me a long time to find out.
Always been very shy. Nary a week goes by without someone telling me "You're so quiet." It bugged me for a long time, but I've gotten used to it. Although it definitely has its drawbacks. I really like people and don't get to be around them much because I'm too shy.
Oh yeah, i hate that too. Worse if they ask why i'm so quiet or why i don't smile.
I'm not shy in sex
